This is our very favorite restaurant in Southport. Casual fare and incredible Vietnamese dishes. Space is limited, but it is worth the wait! Great price point.

We love to stop here when we aren't sure what we want or just want to grab a quick bite in a relaxing atmosphere. Inevitably we always all end up getting the same thing, but the service is very warm and friendly

They charge .25 for a glass of water. Never again. I have been all over the world and have never had to pay for a glass of water anywhere.
