Fodor’s Expert 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. Don't get this excellent restaurant confused with the not-excellent Vietnam Palace across the street.
