“a few things are VERY good here.”
Reviewed 25 April 2010

I find Vietnamese + Thai places tricky. most of them seem to be very good for a few dishes, and lacking on some other ones, so depending on what you like to eat, this could, or could not, be a very good choice.

if you like Bun... the meats and rolls on vermicelli noodles served with fish sauce, then go to touch of ginger delight. hands down, they are the best at that dish.. it's fast, delicious, and a large portion for really cheap. the bbq sauce on their meats is amazing, and the imperial rolls are extremely delicious. I recommend #B25 or #B21 with extra beef in place of the shrimp (their shrimps aren't very good.)

I've had better pho at many other places, especially if you like a sate base.. theirs is not super good. regular rare beef pho is decent, and if that's what you like, then it's not a bad choice. they also have a thai sweet and sour soup that's interesting and tasty.

decent bubble tea, decent salad rolls, cheap beer.

I also get a kick out of the spelling on their menu.. one of their dishes contains "crab flackers." hilarious.

I've never felt like the place isn't clean enough, and there's lots of interesting fish to look at too. the atmosphere is NOT going to blow your mind.. if you're looking for a romantic dinner date, this is not the place, but the food is good and fast and cheap and I would highly recommend it.
