Fodor's Review

Wildly popular with savvy diners from all across the city, this Vietnamese haunt on the eastern side of the I.D. really doesn't look like much from the outside, especially because the entrance is through a grungy parking lot (which it shares with Sichuanese Cuisine restaurant). Once you're inside, though, the elegantly simple, large, and warm space is extremely welcoming. The food is the main draw—try the spring rolls, which are stuffed with fresh herbs, fried

tofu, peanuts, coconut, jicama, and carrots; authentic bánh xèo; spicy, authentic pho; the signature "seven courses of beef"; and, to finish, grilled banana cake with warm coconut milk. Service is attentive, but the waits can be long, even with reservations.
