The hearty offerings are chicken, beef or seafood in broth or on a bed of savory garlic noodles. Since I am partial to noodles, today I ordered the cubed filet mignon steak... More

We bought two soups, both with seafood. The bowls were very large and we barely managed to finish. Everything was very tasty. We also took the fresh coconut juice, which was served in the coconuts themselves. Very good, make sure to try it!

The eggplant and grilled pork dishes were delicious. Been going to Vietnamese restaurants for 20 years, and this is one of the best.
