Love, love this small restaurant. The quality is excellent and consistent. Never a bad meal and this our go to for dinner any night except Sunday (closed). Happy hour apps and drinks before 7pm. Some nights are crazy busy and others are quiet. The patio is great on the warm nights.

Every dish was tasty. When you taste quality flavor in every morsel, you know you'll be back. Service was slow as there was only one server on Saturday morning. Can't wait to try other dishes.

We have visited this restaurant many times since it opened and have always had a good experience. The ambiance is good with friendly and efficient service. The menu has a good selection and should suit most pallets.

Really like coming here for dinner. The Ahi roll appetizer and calamari appetizer are a must. Really good food. Check it out!

Food was nice, but nothing over the top or close to the ratings. We had a roll to start. Nice, but a bit bland. The Shaken Chicken was OK, and the Chicken Pot a bit better. Atmosphere is very much US fast food. Next time in Fullerton, I will head in a different direction.

I have mostly eaten lunch here solo so I hadn't sampled much of the menu. A salad, rice paper rolls and pho. I always love it. If the weather isn't too hot I love to sit on the patio. My last visit was with a group of six. We did a pretty good job on the menu and everyone liked... More

Always outstanding, fresh ingredients and excellent service. I can't speak to the authenticity of Vietnam food, but I've never had a bad meal here, none of it tastes like Chinese food. The Pho is absolutely excellent, high quality chicken breast meat, not chicken parts, wonderful broth. All noodle dishes are excellent as well. Jose at the bar, is very personable... More

The food is. It really what I would call true Vietnamese. It has been dummied down for the American tast buds, but in saying that, it has some nice flavones and the staff are very pleasant.
