This is our go-to place on Piedmont Avenue, especially after the movies. Food is always very, very good. Atmosphere is minimalist neighborhood bistro. Service is OK, but friendly. Very popular spot. We've been many times and will be back.

Super great atmosphere - quiet but not too quiet, dark but not too dark. I had the vegetarian pho - very, very good. The broth is vegan, too! It came with bok choy, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, peppers and huge helpings of tofu along with the...More
