Our second time visiting and we had a great meal. The place is cozy with a nice atmosphere. The pho and vermicelli bowls are big enough to share. Eclectic Asian beer selection. All in all, a very nice meal and experience.

Small restaurant so had to wait 20 minutes. Was certainly worth the wait. Best Pho I've ever had and the spring rolls are delicious.
