The food here is good, but it's a very sterile atmosphere. It's too dark at lunchtime, and sometimes too cold. Kind of expensive for lunch. Even the banh mi is expensive if you compare it to an authentic Vietnamese restaurant, but it's tasty.

No flavour and poor consistency. My appetizer of a spring roll was also bland. Thai food should jump off the plate with flavour and freshness. I didn't get that.
