“Not too authentic.”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

I'm Vietnamese so I know a thing or two about VN food, and this place is not it. Menu only have popular dishes that are "Americanized". Order spring rolls with shrimp and pork, only it didn't have pork and no mint in rolls. Had the rice dish and the "bi" was blant tasting, no spices. Not recommended if you are looking to try some "authentic" VN food.

“Pretty good, but service is slow.”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

The food is reasonably priced and pretty good. The service is pretty slow most days though; it seems to take forever to get your check.

“Great food for the second time!”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

Went back today with my family after a really long time. The last time my brother had Pho and he liked it a lot. today we ordered the Green curry (I know its Thai food-but wth!), the charbroiled chicken with Rice Vermicelli, the charbroiled beef, chicken satay and the soup along with iced coffees. The food was outstanding. The server was polite and efficient and food was brought out in a timely fashion. This place is a dive joint, so dont think you're going to impress your friends or your girlfirend! The decor is totally kitschy and jaded. The bubble teas and the Vietnamese iced coffee is fantastic.
The value for money is terrific. Almost everything is under $10

“Nice change of pace!”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

All I have to say is WOW! One of my most favorite places to eat! Well priced.
#57 & #1 are a must!!! Best iced coffee in town! Starbucks has nothing on this place for iced coffee. Vu the head cook knows how to bring out the best asian cuisine!

“Not bad, but was once better”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

I ate lunch there yesterday with a friend. The egg rolls were outstanding, especially if you wrapped them in the included lettuce and cilantro! I had the clay pot shrimp, and while I loved the taste, they shrimp were overcooked and dry. This dish would be FAR better with larger shrimp. The Tom Kha soup was delicious. Service was not good, my drink was NEVER refilled. The booth we sat in was very uncomfortable. I had not been to this restaurant in quite a few years, and it has gone downhill in the interim. This place is a solid "C"...Average!
