I was exciting to go try Mo Mong upon reading the very good reviews. Expecting a hip/trendy place with great Vietnamese cuisine, my first disappointment was the dark and dingy atmosphere -- granted, it was a Monday evening, but the place truly seemed old and past its heydey. More importantly, however, it was the food that disappointed us most, especially because we'd really hoped to finally get some good, authentic Vietnamese food (with which we're very famliar, having traveled to Vietnam several times). Not so! Most of the dishes we tried (there were 5) were average, at best, although I will say the PHO was very good, as close to authentic as it gets. A disappointing experience overall.
