Pretty place with delicious food and you can sit and talk. We like to get 4 appetizers and share them so we can taste more things. Haven't found anything I didn't love. Took visiting friend from out of town and she was very happy with the new dishes.

If you are looking for a place to have dinner after you visit the High Line, choose this wonderful Vietnamese restaurant with lovely ambiance, excellent service and delicious food. We started with shrimp spring rolls and crispy egg rolls with Shrimp and pork which were both delectable, one served with peanut sauce. For entrees we had the grilled calamari salad (excellent), sautéed jumbo shrimp with vegetables in a light curry sauce (terrific) and stir fried egg noodles with shrimp, chicken, vegetables and pork (delectable). We got a side of sticky rice and one of jasmine rice. It was plenty of food for 3 people and we even took some home. What a wonderful feast of varied tastes, textures and spices (but not overly spicy). We loved sharing and enjoying this great little restaurant together. Be sure to make reservations. I believe they are also open for lunch.

Nice little gem. We were looking for someplace close to the Irish Rep Theatre. You might want to make a reservation as it is a small space. Started off with the spare ribs - 4 tasty and tender treats with plenty of meat. Enough for 2 to share. Then I had Prawn Rolls and Lobster roll salad for main course. Real lobster and a generous amount. Prices were quite reasonable.

The food is not only good but very reasonable, the lighting is just right and the lamp fixtures are beautiful and decor inspirational.

i recently went with my friend who does not care for Asian food and he had to admit he enjoyed the food.
