Fodor's Review

Owner Benny Lai took what started as a noodle shop founded by his immigrant parents, bought up the building and the surrounding property, and turned it into a chic restaurant with an upstairs lounge serving small plates and wacky cocktails like the Flaming Volcano (two straws included). In the dining room the best bets are the crispy spring rolls, salted squid, barbecue platter, and soups with rice noodles.

Vietnam Review

Food tasted very well, but we ended up several days in the hospital due to a severe infection. Still under antibiotics and slowly recovering. Be careful.
