This place was very crowed when I enter with GF, her uncle and aunt. They decided on this Vietnamese restaurant since I wanted to try the food and it was also comfortable for everyone. I didn't feel out of place at all- because it was...More

The place isn't much to look at but the food and service were fantastic. This was our first time having Vietnamese food and loved it. They will make the soup any way you would like. There is meter parking on the street.

If you want to mingle with the large crowd of 'locals'; and get the best Vietnamese Soups in the City, this is the place. Really warms you up in the cold weather. Their wraps (spring rolls) and beaf wrap are also our favorites. Very cheap...More
