Once you move a couple of blocks out from the Alamo, the food options open up. This is a very small storefront restaurant with fewer than a dozen tables, so it can get crowded. The lunch menu is not large but, because each preparation style...More

This small restaurant, not far from the Alamo, makes a good pho, which requires a good broth. Their Vietnamese hot and spicy soup is also pretty good, as are the spring rolls. Our only disappointment was the service - they failed to deliver one of...More

Wasn’t sure how it would be based on other mixed reviews. I ordered to go so I can’t comment on the service although the lady at the counter was perfectly nice. The Thai crispy egg rolls were delish with a little tricky spice you don’t...More

I ordered take-out, and had only one dish, so I can't comment on the whole menu. It was prepared fast, which is a plus. Flavor was so-so — neither exceptional nor poor. I'd requested spicy, and it was quite mild, which was a disappointment. Prices...More

I had the Penang chicken that was good, I asked if I could have rice and told it came with rice what I got was a little bowl of rice. That wouldn't have been so bad if the chicken curry was not swimming in sauce...More

The place is simple, not ideal for a date. I ordered Bun Combo for to go and it was decent. People were friendly and helpful. The price was the same as any food court.

This was an extremely poor managed place. The two waitresses were incompetent at best. Attitude with every question and more rude with each answer. Portions were very small. Can't follow simple directions of sauce on the side instead made my vermicelli dish more like salty...More
