If you are local or in town cant go wrong with this place. The building is not that appealing but please do not judge book by its cover, the food is phenomenal.

If Vietnamese comfort food is what you're looking for, you'll find it here. Outstanding personable and prompt service. Quality noodle soups and dishes. Very relaxed atmosphere. Priced right for good value. In & out at lunch time in about a half hour. I will certainly...More
