“Wow, great Vietnamese food! That crab (market price) curry and bread were good! The shrimp soup with noodles was good too! The egg roll wrapped in lettuce is yummy. She asked us if she wanted us to wrap each piece so she did. Good last vacation meal. Definitely will eat here again if I have a trip here the next time! After having a disappointment with the Korean food the night before.” – Family Nguyen

“Amazing and authentic food that is 5/5 quality and considered cheap eats because the price is decent and worth every penny. The vermicelli chicken & spring rolls bowl was packed full of veggies and meat. The Rainbow Jelly drink was a perfect amount of sweetness and we finished it down to the last drop. Would highly recommend this place.” – Melissa H.
