I got great service during my visit, very attentive staff. The wine options were pretty meh considering the plethora of local possibilities, but that's OK. my Bun Ga was very very good. Will come back if I'm in the area again!

Taste less, my dog wouldn't even eat it. Very little pieces of chicken and garlic fried rice overcooked rice overcooked vegetables thought I would never not like shrimp. Expensive and not worth ordering through the Menu Club as it is a $6 service charge for the delivery

Stopped on a Sunday recently with wife and adult son for lunch and ate on the patio. Nice spot once we got the umbrella positioned. Liked the menu choices, so ordered a mixed beef pho, a chicken/tofu pho and a banh min sandwich - all very good. The previous location also featured a mongolian BBQ and they left that behind...

Our group of four really enjoyed the menu and meal at this Vietnamese restaurant. Being vegan and gluten free, I was delighted to find out that I could order the Pho and the Fire Grilled Combination GF and Vegan.

Slow poor service. Ran out of roasted chicken and egg noodle. Ordered the Duck soup, Combination Pho, Chicken Wings. Took forever to get our food. Waiter did not check on us. Asked for extra napkins - did not get it. The food was not good. The restaurant would never last in San Gabriel or Orange County.

Nice atmosphere, good food, reasonable price! My parents have some allergy issues with the food (no onions and no garlic) and they quickly modified the food for them!
