The place is small, so not necessarily a place for groups. But for lunch with a friend or your significant other, it’s perfect! My husband and I split the spring rolls and 2 different sandwiches (the sloppy joe and the one with pork shoulder). SO...More

The food here is generally good...the signature Banh Mi suffers from what may be the worst bread ever. The rolls either fried or cold are awesome. The Pho is average. Waiters are great conversationalist...amongst themselves... The “quaint” location needs a good cleaning

Ingredients are fresh, service is fast, and if small dining room is full, it is still worth the wait. Tables turn over quickly. And the authentic Vietnamese cuisine is always delicious.

This place is small! Seems to be family run. The banh mi is really very good. The imperial egg rolls were fine.

When it's busy, the space can feel overwhelmed, but don't let that deter you. The staff is extremely competent and the food is fresh and delicious. If you're not in the mood for the close crush of the regulars, just order for take-out. We've never...More
