Great spot for lunch. I had the generous and tasty chicken pho and a delicious coconut pudding dessert. Friendly service. Pretty dining space - lots of warm wood and window in a cozy open kitchen layout on the corner of Bryant and 23rd.

My friends and I came here to check out this place. It's a cute little corner place. The server was very attentive and the food was good. We tried almost all the dishes that they have. They have variety of dishes from different Asian cuisine.
