The interior was austere, not plush, but neat and attractive. No tablecloths. Paper napkins. Pleasant background music from Pandora helped create a pleasant dining experience.

I ordered a noodle entrée with chicken and rice noodles. My wife went for a Pho Ga chicken bowl. Both dishes were very tasty, except that the mushrooms in my entrée were, strangely, very rubbery to chew. There was enough food so that we both walked out with a doggie bag.

No bread was brought for us to munch on while we awaited our dishes, unlike our experience at the Basilic Vietnamese Grill in Lauderdale By The Sea, where we had dined last month. We asked our waiter here about a bread basket. He said that they had run out of bread. Huh? This was lunchtime and the place only had five other diners. Oh, well, we still enjoyed the meal.

We've eaten here twice in this new establishment in downtown Boca Raton. The owners are two brothers with other locations in FL and Southern CA. Site of the former Kim's Noodle Bar. Very hip and clean lines in the decor and the place is very busy on weekend nights and in fact were running low on some food items by 8:30 because of the demand. Great menu from the spring rolls on the appetizer menu to the Pho (our favorite is the seafood Pho) to the noodle dishes and pork. A friend joined us one night and he ordered the house fried rice (ordered pork fried rice but they were out). The local Vietnamese folks come here as well. One of our new favorite places to get good Vietnamese food.

Tried on its second night after opening.

Calm, cool decor - rather more upscale than its sibling in Lauderdale by the Sea.

Apparently had been busy on its opening day and it deserves to be. The food is very good, though has room to be improved to reach Excellent.

For appetisers, we enjoyed a vietnamese grilled beef salad that was fresh and crunchy. It came with minimum dressing and this meant one could add lime juice and chilli pastet to taste. The large julienned carrot accompaniment was great. Similarly, a grilled beef vietnames roll as excellent.

For main courses, we tried the lemongrass seafood dish that was a little too sugary for our taste. Meanwhile the beef pho was tasty with fair depth of base flavor.

This was a promising start and we expect the place to get pretty busy once the locals realise they have a good place on their door step.
