We were passing through Utica and came upon this wonderful Asian restaurant that we were quite impressed with. The service was excellent and the food very tasty. I really enjoyed the vermicelli with lemon grass and shrimp, and my husband had the Pho Pad thai....More

The spring rolls were a bit old tasting and stickier than usual; peanut sauce was unctuous but generous. Pho was very good, fragrant, if a tad, sweet broth, good portions of beef, exceptionally nice tendon. Would have liked some more fresh greens in addition to...More

This is the best Pho noodle place in the area. I haven't tried other dishes but all they look great. No charge for hot tea and fast service are plus.

Small restaurant, building appearance from outside does not represent the quality of the food served. Simple interior. Live about an hour away and make a point to visit every 5 weeks or so. If closer-would go much more often. Vegetables are fresh, rice noodles homemade,...More

This is a very modest looking restaurant that has great Southeast Asian food. I had a ginger stir fry that was done to perfection. A very generous serving with loads of fresh veggies (red and yellow peppers, zucchini, onions, etc.) I had chicken but there...More
