Reviewed 20 October 2017

OK, to begin with, we are not well-versed in Vietnamese cuisine. Nonetheless, we decided to give it a try on a busy Sunday night while visiting PS for a conference/ vacation. Very impressive, from the friendly staff and busy vibe, to the food which was a excellent. Shrimp and Mango summer rolls got us started, followed ultimately with a delicious lemongrass shrimp/pork noodle bowl. Try it, you'll like it!

Trust all the great reviews. This was one of the best meals we’ve ever had either locally or while traveling. The flavors where amazing with a very comfortable dining experience.

Great eclectic Asian-fusion cuisine. There were seven family & friends, the place is intimate. If you are craving unique cuisine with a myriad of flavors across the table, this is your place. Everyone enjoyed their meals from the appetizers, entrees, sides & exotic drinks. Casual dining.
Dishes range from spicy, hot, savory & sweet. This is not traditional Asian Faire, trust the servers for menu explanation & recommendations based on your gastronomic desire.
No reservations are taken, dinner only, establishment opens at 5:00pm, people started lining up around 4:45pm for first seating. I recommend & will definitely return.

I read reviews about how good this place was and because it was conveniently close to my hotel, I decided to give it a try. Coming from a city with a large Vietnamese population, and no shortage of excellent Vietnamese restaurants, this was just totally disappointing. I guess I should have seen the red flag by the fact that there were no Vietnamese people eating in the restaurant but I tried it anyway. The congee or rice porridge was just thin, watery gruel that had no taste, and the dish I ordered was totally devoid of flavor. Good thing there was Sriracha sauce at the table as without it, the dish would have been inedible. Maybe the other reviewers have never had authentic Vietnamese food and so do not really have anything with which to compare this restaurant. I guess a better description of the cuisine might be Vietnamese inspired....but not Vietnamese.

Don't be put off by the location..if you don't know its there you will miss it. Food is totally AMAZING..Vietnamese with a fusion twist. Very tasty & cooked fresh. Reasonable prices for something a bit different. staff cool too.
