“love it!”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

Stopped in for lunch after 1pm. As always food was great, service very fast. I asked for a change in one of the vermicelli dishes & they were more than happy to accommodate my request. They even filled up my travel water bottle with ice water when I asked. Lots of vermicelli bowls to choose from.

“Soup & service fast”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

We all had soup which was tastefully, not greasy & very large bowl even when ordering the small size. Service is fast. Suggest that if you go for lunch then be there at 11:30 am to get a table because as soon as noon hits this places is packed. This was our second visit here & will return again.

“Extremely Fast and Good Vietnamese”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

The decor is horrible but the service is fast and the food is tasty.
I wish they had more Vermicelli bowl versions as they only have 2 or 3.

“Ask for bugs on the side”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

We used to love this place until I found a bug in my soup (not just an aphid). It was slightly smaller than the size of my pinky nail and had antennas. Anyone else probably would've missed it but I always look before I eat and there it was in my soup. They did not seem surprised nor did they care when we complained. Tells me something about their standard of cleanliness. Food was excellent so if you don't think it's a big deal to find bugs in your food you will really enjoy this place. Not being sarcastic...
