Loved the spring rolls with yummy peanut sauce. The rice bowls are tasty and not too spicy. They have excellent drinks and beer choices. Service is very good. The restaurant is casual and relaxing. Parking was easy. I recommend this restaurant.

Delicious food (I had the pho and the shrimp appetizer) and very good drinks (I had the Salty Sailor).

Many choices of appetizers and main courses. Explanations available. Helps if familiar with Vietnamese food. Appetizers can serve as a small meal. Noodle dishes large and can be shared. A little pricey, but very specialized. A cup of hot tea was $4.

The osso buco was very good. The scallops were very well prepared. The rabbit dumpling starter was good but only 3 dumplings. Helpful, pleasant waitstaff. Convenient parking

Where else can you get rabbit appetizer? (Quiet your conscience and try them.) Ditto re a what is essentially a deconstructed Bahnhofstrasse me in a bowl. This is my go-to fav on University Ave and perhaps in all of the Saintly City.

This is an attractive, active restaurant with good service and enjoyable food. My wife and I had the chicken pho which we found to be large and delicious. Our friends had the gnoochi which they found to be too salty. They were out of the...More
