We keep going back, the food is always great. Service is prompt and the prices are modest. They have a broad menue, so you can find several dishes you like.

I got stuck on a layover in Austin and was in a nearby hotel off Oltorf Blvd. Found this place on TA with great reviews. I went in around 1pm, not expecting to see what I saw. Very small restaurant, seats maybe 50 folks, but there was a line out the door (always a great sign to foodies like me).... More

I love Asian food, and this is one of the best places in Austin that I can think of. I've enjoyed everything - and I do mean everything - I've had there. I don't eat pork, so I can't speak to that, but the beef and chicken have always been good. I usually get the vietnamese noodles with charbroiled chicken... More

I have no idea what to order (my daughter does that) but everything we eat there is fabulous. Staff is very friendly and will help you out. It's Austin, eat local.
