Nice place right across the street from the Phoenix Hotel. Title of review says it all, but since I need more characters: good food, fair amount of vegetarian options, solid service, and reasonable prices.

The eggplant and grilled pork dishes were delicious. Been going to Vietnamese restaurants for 20 years, and this is one of the best.

Honestly this restaurant is sort of like a hole in the wall in a not so great part of town in the tenderloin, but if you look past that the food is excellent and the staff that works here very accommodating and kind. Its a great place to eat before the symphony, opera or theatre. Not at all pretentious. If you are allergic to seafood like I am make sure to mention it and they will work with you to make something up as most dishes have fish or oyster sauce in them. On my last visit I stared at a bland wall that had rather beautiful paintings on it, that is just an observation that shouldn't dictate you visiting or not though :)

We had goi cuon ( fresh spring rolls) , bun bo hue, pho , seafood noodle soup, all well done. The restaurant is nicely decorated for the price of the food. Try the iced coffee and soursop smoothly.
The neighbourhood does look a bit scary , park in the paid carpark diagonally opposite the restaurant . It's only about $2.
