    Super tasty food! I definitely recommend their new beef belly Banh Mi Chao entree. The banh mi bread is to die for because it is so light and delicate. Their seasonal wildberry matcha latte was so delicious! It tasted like an elevated matcha cheesecake with a wildberry compote.

    "FYI" we got there about 4pm, We tried to make an reservation at 5pm our choice was 8pm or 4pm, so brunch stops at 5pm and dinner begins at 5pm. but! between 3pm and 5pm there was certain thing we couldn't get from the brunch menu,

    Everything was super fresh and very flavorful!! I will definitely be back again. My only complaint is that I asked for an extra piece of bread & the server told me it would be an extra $1 charge, would that be okay? I said yes, but when the bill came, I was charged $2 for a piece of bread. I pointed it out to the waiter, & he said sorry BUT didn't adjust the bill. The menu indicates $1 so I don't like when the bill & the menu don't match. Not a good look.

    We celebrated a friend’s birthday here, and it was a lively atmosphere. We saw many families with young children here too. The noise level was high, which made it difficult for us to talk to one another, but we just spoke to those seated next to each other. The food was amazing. Since we were a party of 7, we ordered various dishes to share. The beef tongue fried rice and xoi chien were delicious. The best dishes to me were the desserts, especially the egg coffee tiramisu. It was so good that we ordered another one after finishing the first one.
