Lovely small, almost hidden restaurant in the east Dallas area of Lakewood. Local chefs who changed their direction (the right direction!). Specializing in North Vietnamese cuisine.
The waitstaff at dinner was outstanding. Very accommodating and helpful with suggestions. The dinner portions are a nice size. The appetizers can be shared. The sizzling cake with shrimp, scallion was delicious. It is a very thin crepe with all the goodies inside. You wrap it up in a large lettuce leaf with your choice of herbs (lemongrass, cilantro). Dip it in some wonderful fish sauce. This can be ordered with tofu, mushroom for a vegan variety.
Entrees -- Marinated crab legs was very good as were the he chargrilled prawns. Served with either noodle or rice and nice green vegetables, i.e. leeks. Nice variety of entrees - it's hard to choose!
Nice selection of wines and desserts.
The atmosphere was quite nice. Very sleek. Mostly low tables with comfortable padded stools. Very interesting lighting -- towards the back of the restaurant are a grouping of lamps hung upside down. Adds to the character of the restaurant. Outside seating is available. Can get crowed on weekends. Weeknights are not as busy.
