Had the fried spring rolls which were very good but the Panang curry was very watery with just a hint of curry taste. The noodle soup was ok but not as good as what Namaste serves in Winooski. Tea was quite good.

If you are looking for a good Vietnamese food this is your place. Family run and has authentic dishes and very well priced menu. They don't have alcohol license but you can bring your own and they will open it for you. Only thing to keep in mind as they get busy they tend to miss your your food order so you might want to remind them just incase your order has not arrived with others.

Also first come first serve so be prepared to wait just incase if you are famished as fifteen minute can be a long wait other than that great place to have nice warm meal.

First time visit based on high ratings. Not disappointed. Had to wait about ten minutes on an early Saturday evening. Very popular place. Large crow waiting for tables of which there aren't that many. Didn't realize it was a BYO restaurant. The spring roll (Goi Cuon) appetizers were great. My wife had a regular size soup with meatballs and shrimp and really enjoyed it. It was more than enough for dinner. I had Bun Bo Xao Xa Ot which is thinly sliced beef and vegetables sauteeed with onion and lemon grass. Definitely will come back again.

It was very crowded and we had to wait a bit, then crowd onto a table that was a bit cozy for us. That was alright - the staff did the best they could! Here are some of our dishes and the eater's review, based on 10 stars:
Rau Cai Xao - a veggie stir-fry with chicken over rice noodles - 8 stars
Huieu Mi Xao - noodles with veggies, sprouts, egg and chicken - 9 stars
Bun Nem Nuang Cha Gio - crispy eggrolls & pork with veggies over rice noodles - 7 stars ("interesting flavor, but too much fried stuff")
Ca Ri (Vietnamese curry) - veggie stirfry over noodles - 10 stars ("very tasty")
There is no alcohol served. The tables are very plain, diner-style, and the atmosphere is sort of like a lively cafeteria, but the food was great. It was too cold to sit outside (it was October after all).

Soup was flavorful albeit kind of thin and contained a sausage-like "meat" that was something of a mystery in addition to the meager portion of chicken. Fresh basil was nice, but I missed fresh mint. Spring rolls were very bland. Service is excellent and people wait in line for this restaurant, so I may have eaten there on an off day.
