In town for the weekend from Houston and saw people eating lunch outside the day before and it looked so fresh and delicious so I had to come back the next day for dinner and it didn’t disappoint!!! Best spring roll I have ever had!!!

Fresh and fabulous! Ate at the bar at lunch - debated a sidewalk table - and enjoyed one of the best papaya salads I’ve had in a while. Fresh roll was spot on as well - a great find!

Super fun vibes and cute date night spot! The tables were a bit crowded so we snagged a seat at the bars and the service was quick, easy, and food was fresh.

Will def come back.

Went with a friend, it was our first time eating there. Service was better than expected, they made sure we never ran out of water, was very attentive. We ordered the taro fries, pepper steak vermicelli and the tofu veggie rice bowl. Everything was delicious, the flavors and sauces were great. I'm now obsessed with their taro fries.

Mediocre at best. There are much better options for vegetarian Vietnamese food in the city, and they don’t offer vegetarian duck.

The food was great. You should definitely make a reservation given that the place is very popular and can get crowded easily. Will be returning again :)

This is a small mom and pop restaurant. The food is fresh- Vietnamese with French influences. We had pho that was vegetarian, beef pho, and their chicken papaya salad. Everything was well made and super fresh. I would def eat here again.

Food was way below my expectations. Classic pho, the staple of all Vietnamese restaurants, was really disappointing. Even the specialty juice was sour!! I’m confounded by the amount of people who dine here. There are so many better restaurants in nearby Chinatown for half the price.

The food was overall good. It really hit the spot for a cold winter day. The Taro fries were really good. The broth was very clear yet very flavorful. Simple at it's finest.

It was great! The vibe of the whole restaurant is very relaxed with a touch of funky. The food was pretty good, we got the shishito peppers, shrimp tempura, chicken satay bao bun and the classic pho (all of which was pretty good). The cocktails all sounded very interesting, however the ones we got were not very good (some drink with charcoal & lavender and another drink with rose in it).

Although the food was delicious, the place is so small and the noise level so deafening, we couldn't hear each other. We moved to the front bench which had a large open window facing the street and were able to talk.

The receptionist was extremely rude. She didn’t anticipate that I had a reservation.
Their first part of the cafe is not air-conditioned. I asked to be seated at the air conditioned area. She said “Look, I’m going to seat this 8-person group there. The only table for you I have is by the window (in an area with no air conditioning). Take it or leave it”.
I would recommend this place if you are looking for humidity of Thailand on a hot summer day in NYC.
