I love this little place. Linda the owner is always welcoming and the food is always full of flavours and fresh. Great fried rice, the best salt and pepper squid I have tasted and loads of dishes and entrees to choose from. Priced very reasonably.

Can't understand why so many asian restaurants have to use MSG. Attended here a couple years ago and it was good. This time suffered from MSG all night. Much better option down the road. If you suffer side effects from MSG AVOID.

Lovely atmosphere, good service This is nasty greasy Chinese food (and some Thai food) pretending to be Vietnamese. Very disappointed with the food, but can’t fault the service or atmosphere. Would not return.

I was here with my partner for dinner, we were seated and served quickly, though the waitresses seemed distracted by friends dropping in to say hi. I was expecting fresh flavours, vibrant colours and the hospitality I received in Vietnam. Instead what we were served...More

This little restaurant has been on the strip for years, but we had never been in. However we were pleasantly surprised when we did so recently . The service was great, the food good and very reasonably priced.
