I'm wondering how someone ordering a happy pancake, which is offered in most vietnamese restaurants, could expect anything other than a crispy battered fried crepe? That's what it IS. To complain that it was unsatisfactory because it is fried is like ordering french fries and...More

Wonderful ambience. It appears to be a family business and the attention to diners, the food and the decor is wonderful to experience. If you get there early, you can enjoy the wonderful grounds and all the ceramics. Food was authentic and delicious.
