Everything we ordered was delicious and of excellent quality. We had a booth and the setting was perfect for a good long lunch with friends I hadn't seen for some time. Delicious Vietnamese coffee, too.

So good! Interesting drinks too. I have tried several things off the menu. ALL were delicious. Their creme brulee is decadently divine. Great place to go on a quiet date or with friends and family. JUST GO! you won't regret it.
