Fodor's Review

If you're looking for homey Vietnamese food served in a down-to-earth dining room at a bargain-basement price, don't stop here. Celebrated chef-owner Charles Phan has mastered the upmarket, Western-accented Vietnamese menu. To showcase his cuisine, he built a big space with sleek wooden tables and chairs, a cocktail lounge, a bar, and an enviable bay view. His popular dishes include green-papaya salad, daikon rice cakes, cellophane crab noodles, chicken clay pot, and shaking beef (tender beef cubes with garlic and onion). They don't come cheap, but they're made with quality ingredients. To avoid the midday and evening crowds, dine at the bar, drop by for afternoon tea (2:30–4:30), or visit Out the Door, Phan's take-out counter around the corner, which is less expensive.
