This restaurant is downtown and not in the Old Market, but what a great find. Parking was easy right on the street and the interior very modern . From the soup to the meal + a glass of wiine everything was excellent. Happy to find a nice selection of tea for after while enjoying this relaxing place.

Hello! To start, the inside on Saigon Surface is second to none. I think the decor and atmosphere was top notch. I was very impressed. I even had an iPad with a fireplace app running at the end of the table. Great first impression. Service was great and I enjoyed every minute of sitting there. The food was delicious! Very... More

They have a variety of Vietnamese standards as well as some unusual twists- try the 18 hour boneless short ribs cooked with ginger - they are wonderful. Everything else I have tried has been very good.

Got pushed away from my go-to choice in Downtown O and was headed to gastro-pub when I saw this place. Stopped in during their Restaurant Week. The special menu didn't grab me so I opted for a beer and their beef pho. Wow - the slowest service I ever experienced in a Vietnamese place. Beer came and I was ready... More

Real Vietnamese food in a chic, lounge setting. Had a nice little happy hour menu and the owners were friendly and attentive. I had the wings, which were just spicy enough along with the Bun Bo. I will definitely be back.

Had a late lunch but still not able to eat more than half of the serving. Egg drop soup was tastier than the Hot & Sour soup. Helpful waiter, answered menu questions and told us about items. Made choice easier.

This is the best Vietnamese restaurants i've been to on three continents. no joke. Best fresh ingredients and extreme cleanliness. I only wish I lived closer to it. I also must commend the quality of the interior of the restaurant. There is a nice bar area with great HDTV which I watched some tennis on while eating lunch.

food was terrific as was the service. We started with the fresh spring rolls which were very fresh and didn't skimp on the shrimp, I had Mi Vit Tiem, (egg noodle, bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, pickled papaya, roasted duck breast ) and my companion had the Ginger Chicken Clay Pot, (broccoli, sweet onions, carrots, bell peppers, green onion ) and...
