I just did a Siri request for Chinese food and was directed here! Nice efficient staff, many local and repeat customers , and good food. I ordered the spring rolls because 3 people before me did, and was delighted. Thin film wrapped around thin slice of beef on one side,filled with lettuce bean sprouts and vermicelli, and two pick shrimp... More

I eat here frequently, the nicest little lady at the counter, always good food, especially the pho and spring rolls. The Decor is nothing to write home about and I'd not say it was a sterile environment but, it is reasonably priced, really nice people and good food.

No, they haven't changed the furnishings, though they have had someone do very nice Chinese caligraphy-like brush paintings on the walls. They also haven't added paper towels to the bathroom, just installed a rather inefficient blow drier. What has changed since my previous review is that I have branched out to try several different kinds of pho and a number... More

It's very much a budget operation - almost completely undecorated, second-hand restaurant supply furnishings, and never any paper towels in the lone restroom - and it isn't the best Vietnamese food I've ever had. However, it is the only choice for Vietnamese food in Columbia, and it is very reasonably priced. Both the various types of pho and the spring... More

Good food. Low price. Borderline bad atmosphere. Also the only place I know of with Vietnamese cuisine. In fact, that is more of their specialty IMO.

Delicious, hot food and fast service. This food is cooked fresh, not reheated as served. And the eggrolls are homemade/hand rolled - fantastic! Prices are great. Don't come here if you're looking for atmosphere, just great food.
