When humgry for a nice warm bowl of lemon grass chicken soup, this is the place to go. I have taken friends there for meetings and now it has become one of their favorite places to eat as well.
Great service, prompt, clean and always feel as if I was at home.

The Spring rolls are also amazing! I have not had one meal that I have not enjoyed yet.

Amazing place to eat anytime. The Pho is the best anywhere in Iowa ...

Service is always excellent and the place feels like home. This also has a tendency to be a quiet place ... great for couples and conversation.

Oh and this place is awesomely affordable.

Love the food here- everything is delicious. Spring rolls, pho, bun, etc. I have never had anything bad here. My husband wanted the chicken curry, but wasn't in the mood for chicken. No problem- they made it with beef for him. Everything is very fresh, the food comes fast once you order. The service is a bit iffy. Very friendly, but rather laid back about seating you and taking your order. They also never seem to refill water unless you chase them down. I always want to bring Clorox wipes for the bathroom, though. Rather grungy. Hubby was also icked out by the smashed rat in the parking lot. Which is VERY tight- best park there if you have a compact vehicle.

We just tried this little restaurant this evening and were very pleased with all aspects of our dining experience. Service was excellent! We had spring rolls, chicken and fried rice and a chicken and fresh vegetables. The spring rolls were very fresh as was our meals. We did not have to wait long at all for our meal. We've eaten in Vietnamese restaurants in Japan as well as in Vietnam and found our meal here to be very comparable. We will definitely put this on our list of regular stops. If you want fresh, healthy food -- this is a place to go.
