Outstanding service as usual. We always find it a bit noisy but it’s part of the charm and did t mind it at lunch so much. The brisket beef dip was a real winner with my husband. Our niece and her daughter opted for tofu based trees and found them interesting, delicious and very satisfying - sometimes difficult to find inventive delicious vegan or vegetarian food but never here. The chicken wings were addictive - I wish they would bottle and sell that sauce!! The only negative in my view was my Shrimp vermicelli dish which was a little bland and too dry for my liking. Now if I’d had the chicken wing sauce to pour over it ...
Overall we all loved it.

Tried to get dinner reservations while in Honolulu for the holidays but nothing available so we went for an early lunch. The fried chicken wings were sublime. Their classic Banh mi was so magical I was afraid to put it down just in case it was a dream that I didn't want to end. My husband had the pho French dip Banh mi and I don't think we said a word to each other until we finished our sandwiches. We both had the lilikoi malasadas for dessert and now I'm planning my next visit to Honolulu so I can have another transcendent meal or two here. Easily one of my Top 5 meals ever.

This was a lunch with my wife to celebrate a new career change. Perfect location near downtown allowed us to dine quickly within our one-hour lunch break. Thank you for the delicious vegan pho! And the soft-serve custard dessert was amazing!

We arrived on time for our reservation but was made to wait for a table in a cramped space with other people waiting. A lot of the things on the menu were not available because it was sold out. What was available was substitued with another ingredient. For example the Curry noodle was not the noodle on the menu but the pho noodle instead. The pho didn't have any brisket but some dry tasteless beef substitue. The noodles were all overcooked and way too soft. The stock in the pho was meh can only taste green onions and nothing else. The sandwich came with soggy overdressed salad that was so small its more like a garnish. Also the food took forever to come. Obviously the restaurant is not experienced to handle a busy Holiday crowd. Worse meal in our two weeks in Hawaii.

A favorite restaurant . We rang day before and asked to increase the size of our party. They rang back and said they were completely full. When we arrived there were plenty of open tables....disappointing

The server was great. Problem was all the food was delivered so quickly that our meal was rushed and even with 4 courses each we were out in an hour .....dissatisfied

Amazing food, great service. Original reservation was for 8pm but we were in town earlier and they accommodated our party of three at the bar for 5:30pm. Definitely recommend if you’re a fan on Vietnamese, or any Asian, cuisine with a unique flavour. Local beer was good too! 10/10, check it out. Lots of good options in the area too for a snack before or drink after.

Wonderful experience for our family. Our dinner started with excellent service; our waiter described the menu in a super friendly manner and answered all of our questions courteously. He was also very attentive throughout our meal. All of the dishes we chose had a Pig and the Lady twist that made the dish special, from Mom's Pate Chaud, to the fried chicken wings, Burmese tea salad, Kaua'i shrimp, and Pho 75. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Honolulu.
