Local restaurant is a surprise. Most diners not familiar with Vietnamese food. Great place to start trying this cuisine. Service is consistently good. Friendly staff. Mama is in the kitchen and has years of experience.

Have been going here for years. Food is consistently good. Love the pho noodle soups. The pork chops are very yummy too. One wish: would be nice if they would refresh the menu. New choices would be very welcome!
