Great little hole in the wall. The chicken and shrimp coconut curry soups were perfect. Pretty spicy and great flavor. The Singapore Noodles also good. Had a terrific waiter with a smile on his face the entire time. 😁 Rare these days.

Always great to happen upon an excellent restaurant like this one! The Shrimp hot and sour soup was a spicy delight. The Vietnamese Salad was wonderful with an uncommonly good dressing. The Lunch Special - so reasonable at $8.95 with 23 choices - also great....More
