Great lunch place with a pleasing aroma upon entering the restaurant. The place actually is too small for the popularity of this gem. I had fresh spring rolls which were fresh indeed with a sweet dipping sauce. Followed by a vermicelli salad with shrimp, chicken...More

I have been coming to this little family-owned East Side staple and I am never disappointed. A lovely remodel changed them from a hole in the wall to a nice, cozy modern Cafe. The food is as good as always. I have such a hard...More

The pho is amazing. Good broth. I love the pork skins on the broth. Place is a little small. I wish they would expand it soon. But give it a try! You'll love it!

I love this place. Staff is friendly, and the food is excellent. I always get the papaya salad - fresh, cool, spicy. Grilled beef salad is nice, too.
