Well first of all Vietnamese is not my favorite Asian cuisine. I like hot spicy foods. The good news is this place makes some excellent home made hot sauce! I struggle a little with the fish sauce used in Vietnamese cooking, but there are plenty of dishes here that do not have it. My wife loves this place, but I... More

We enjoyed our visit, but there were too many choices, too much emphasis on presentation and not enough on flavor, and the restaurant gave the impression they were going for sophisticated, but the environment felt more fast-food. We all had difficulty making choices from the menu, half of us liked our food, the other half was disappointed. The prices were... More

My wife and I stopped in for an early lunch. The exterior looks like an old drive-in restaurant with mirrored windows. But once inside it is well decorated and the staff is attentive and friendly. Only problem we encountered was the intense smell of incinse ... some folks are not used to this and I am one of them. The... More

Vietnamese food that is truly excellent. Family owned and operated. Spotless place. 2 locations. Try #28! I have taken visiting VIP's there and also my plumber and all are comfortable. The best in town. Well worth the time to try it. You will be back soon.

I can't really add anything to the positive reviews here. I had the #16 and the shrimp spring rolls. Definitely recommend coming here!

On my first visit to Vietnamese restaurant I always order the Pho. Theirs was very good with a good helping of beef. The place is very clean and the staff very friendly. We were early for dinner and had food on the table in less than 20 minutes.

The Green Papaya is a local favorite. My daughters have frequently eaten there and said, 'You have to go with us sometime.' Asian is not my favorite category personally. But my wife and I went with one of our girls and her boyfriend recently. It was an excellent meal. The service was genuine and kind in nature while meeting all... More

Returning here the food quality remains great, the prices are reasonable, and the staff is pleasing. I get my standard number 22B, which is charcoal chicken over steamed rice. I am on a no msg no salt diet and this works for me.
