I've been a Loyal customer for 20 yrs, the food is amazing, service is great, you must, must get there as soon as they open or you might be waiting for a table for a long time, it gets very crowded on the weekends so best to go during the week.. I have tried everything on the menu and its all excellent, oh and the home made desserts are to die for, Cathy (the owner) is very friendly and welcoming, she sometimes does the cooking herself if not shes out front greeting the guest. Its a very charming place, you might have to wait a little for your food, but its worth it..

When we finally sat and ordered, more than half the things on the menu were not available because, according to the waiter, the chef had argued with the owner and walked out. He went on to say that it happens frequently, so don't count on a complete menu. I have three children who love asian food and a husband that could eat rocks...and none of them ate more than four or five bites. There were only two desserts available from the list, so we ordered the strawberry cake. When the waiter told the owner there was only one piece left, she told him in front of us she was going to give it to her friends on the table over. It took two hours to seat and about the same to get the hell out of there with close to two hundred dollars less in our pocket. Zagat owes us one hell of an apology for this because the only good thing there was our waiter.

Owned and operated by the same lady since I can't remember when, she will most likely be one of your servers as well. Limited menu could use a tweak but all high quality and very well prepared. Fantastic "Pho" type soups too!

This is an electic resturant like no other. It has about 10 table in the whole resturant. You can wait up 1.25 hour for a table and anoter hour for the food. This is mostly a locals place where you know what the situation is. However, the food is fantastic and the server are very personable. In addition you can talk to other patrons while you have dinner. Not only is the food great but it is priced reasonally.

Was warned that this is a tiny restaurant with 2 star decor (but clean!) and 5 star delicious food and a reputation for a long wait. Could not be more accurate. Arrived at 6:30pm waited an hour for table for two. Get there before 6pm or after 9pm. Owner Kathy cooks to order so it is hot and fresh. Light soup (pumpkin) was delicious. Also had avocado salad which was tasty but go for the pumpkin soup and spring rools. Husband ate BBQ beef with vermacelli noodles - YUMMY. I had pho (Hearty soup) very generous and tasty - we added chilis because we like things hot and spicy. couple of beers and we ended up with no room to try dessert. Found staff very pleasant and jovial but they are run off their feet. Be prepared to wait and be patient and you will be rewarded. We hunted for good Vietnamese food after spending our vacation there and we were not disappointed.
