My wife and a friend had dinner there one evening. Everything we had was excellent, even to our Vietnamese friend, and the service was good. This is a lively, informal place.

We ate breakfast there and everything went above and beyond our expectations. Service was great too. We had the french toast and it was the best I think I've ever had. Id go back to Austin just to eat here again. Must give it try!

I always enjoy their twist to Thai dishes. Never been disappointed. Had too many visits here it’s about time to give them their due credit. Only taking out one star is service can be improved.

Bright, happy, colorful, delicious place for breakfast. My first time to eat Vietnamese style breakfast and it will not be the last. I had a mushroom and grilled pork omelette with a mango salad. It was so bright with flavors that my mood was instantly...More
