“Needs a Lot of Work”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This is not a restaurant. It's takeout....either to the picnic tables outside or to wherever you want to go.

We went there on a Sunday, when the Callicoon Farmer's Market was on. We placed our small order (summer roll and lemongrass pork salad) and said that we'd be back in twenty minutes. They said "great." In 25 minutes we returned to find that our order wasn't ready. It would be another 10 minutes. All in all, it took another 20 minutes. A number of people who ordered when we did got their money back because their food wasn't ready.

Admittedly, the kitchen is tiny. Like a small walk-in closet. So, my advice is not to take large orders or give them a longer wait time. The small order seems to get lost in the shuffle.

The food was tasty and fresh, but nothing really special. Except, perhaps, for the area.

“Vietnamese delight”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We were delighted to find this little Vietnamese take-out place -- it's really just a storefront, though there are a few outside tables in the alleyway -- in Callicoon. My wife and I both had banh mi sandwiches -- lemongrass pork and grilled tofu -- both delicious. The food is prepared fresh so be prepared to wait a little while, maybe nursing a Vietnamese coffee, which is a real treat. This is what Asian street food should be -- and we'll be trying their vermicelli bowls soon. A great stop after the farmers' market on Sunday.

“Diversity in tiny Sullivan County!!!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Absolutely Fantastic!!!!! I love that our area has the opportunity to experience another Asian cuisine beyond the Chinese that is found in almost every town. The ingredients are fresh and from local sources and the packaging is environmentally friendly. The only suggestion I have for the potential customer intending to order takeout-call up to 30minutes ahead since everything is prepared fresh and not ahead of time. Do not expect Pho here....at least not yet. This restaurant specializes in Bánh mì sandwiches, rolls, salads, and vermicelli/rice bowls. If you cannot eat dishes with cilantro, the owner, Nhi Mundy, will happily substitute mint if available. From time to time, there are specials, such as the curry chicken soup I fetched when it was raining cats and dogs.
