The great news is this is a Vietnamese restaurant WITHOUT MSG! The indoor dining area is secluded and private and has a brilliant Vietnamese ambience. Private dining areas are romantic and cosy. Brilliant menu! Fabulous duck options!

Had a good variety off of their menu and every dish was absolutely delicious. I grew up in California with a large Vietnamese community so believe I know great Vietnamese food when I taste it. Definitely recommend this place.
