They were really friendly and the food was ready quickly. I had take out .All in all though, food was typical take out. Wasn't extremely impressed. You do get a lot of food though for the money.

This is a classic hole-in the-wall eatery in SF that serves up some of the best Vietnamese food in the city. The atmosphere is stripped down to the basics, but the food is the real draw for this place. I recommend the Imperial roll noodle...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
