Delicious Vietnamese dishes. We had the Curry Laksa, Vietnamese Chicken Salad, & Garlic Sesame Tuna Tacos. Love the flavors of the dishes so much, I went online to find recipes so I can also enjoy them at home. It was a young crowd, hip environment, new modern setting, interesting cocktails to indulge in. Nice place for a date.

Getting good SE Asian food in Raleigh is tough. I wanted to like this place, and it wasn't horrible, but the food was NOT amazing- felt fairly generic- and the decor was cheaply done that it was distracting.

I absolutely LOVE the food and drinks here. My boyfriend and I decided to do a post-Valentine's Day dinner here and it was probably the most romantic dinner we've had in quite some time. He had the ramen and I had the mango Summer rolls. We split the crab Rangoon and dumpling appetizers and the cheesecake wontons for dessert. Everything was delicious, the prices were reasonable and the drink offerings were stellar as well. (I HIGHLY recommend the cilantro smash and the pineapple sake!) We had a very polite and attentive server. (Even the music was great and I usually prefer a more quiet date night setting!) Even though we love the ambiance, this particular night the lighting was a little too dim as many of us dining had to pull our phones out and use the flashlight to see the menus but other than that, CO has definitely surpassed a number of places in Raleigh and is now my current favorite eatery.

The evening started with high expectations with a lively and eclectic atmosphere, but soon went downhill from there. We arrived at 7:15 for a 7:30 reservation. Had to check in with the hostess after a 30 minute wait at the bar, while we watched other couples being seated that arrived after we did. Finally proceeded to show us to our seats only to find a table for 2 in the midst of several other large parties (we requested a high top). After complaining about that, we were then seated at a high top table. Next our waitress shows to take our order and we proceeded to order appetizers and an entree each. After about 15 minutes, our entrees arrived before we ever saw an appetizer......of course shortly thereafter our appetizers arrived......go figure. The manager apologized and gave us complimentary appetizers.........................At this point we were done.
On the other hand, our entrees (pad thai and spicy pepper udon noodles) were tasty along with the siracha mary (bloody mary) we had at the bar...................Hopefully it was just a bad night......

Great food, extremely good service, overall a great dining experience. Only 2 complaints, the lighting was very low so it was hard to read the menu - the lettering on the menu was very small. It was very loud where you actually had to shout to speak to the person right next to you.

Food was amazing and service was great! The restaurant is just a bit too loud. It was hard to have a conversation without yelling across the table. If the noise bothers you, definitely go early in the week when they’re less likely to be busy. We went on a Saturday night. I’ll definitely be back!

The lighting turned me off. It is hard to see/read the menu and even appreciate the food. I couldn't see what on was on my plate and I like to be able to look and see. A complete turn down. Unlikely to return for dinner for that reason. I got lucky though. I ordered Hanoi noodles and even though I couldn't see it very well, it was tasty. I ordered without adds, just vegetarian. My husband and daughter did not care for their dishes. He had poke bowl and she ordered the Pork Ramen, which she said tasted like she was eating raw, unseasoned pork.
