We had a wonderful dining experience. We were a party of 4 adults. The staff was kind and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

First time at the restaurant so we could only try a few things. The spring rolls, not fried btw, were very good with the peanut sauce. Spare ribs were very tasty and not what you would expect if you're thinking 'Chinese spare ribs'. We also tried the Duck and a special fish entree. Service was very good, the place looks really nice and the food is great. Give it a try!

This was the best Vietnamese food. The service was excellent and the food delicious.

The Brussels Sprout appetizer were to die for. The tofu fried rice was so good that I ordered one to go for my lunch the next day.

We wouldn’t have known about this restaurant if it had not been for open table.

We will be back!!!

All were excellent: oysters were fresh, pork banh mi was great (although I don't eat pork much). Chicken curry banh mi needs bit of work. For the dessert we tried the donuts with fillings and they were light/airy and tasty. Everything was superb. I will definitely come back here again and soon!
