We passed this place one day and noticed the crowds. We made a mental note to return. Expect at least a 30 min wait during meal hours. This is a bustling little place that is quite popular. We waited it out. We noticed the majority...More

Not much to look at. Crowded with small tables. Always a long line. We stopped in at about 3 on Saturday and had a 20 minute wait. The service was excellent - very fast. The food was just great. Not really sure how to describe...More

We had to wait for our table but it was well organized so it went fast. We ordered pho, banh mi and bun. We enjoyed everything. Price is more than correct. Waiters and hostess are really caring! We recommend!

I was meeting up with an old friend going back over 25 years, one I hadn't seen in nearly a decade and well, catching up was the priority and unfortunately the food, specifically the two bánh mì sandwiches we had shared didn't leave any memorable...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
