Hidden gem. Has a branch in downtown LA too. Great Vietnamese fusion food from a very talented chef. Good wine and cocktail selection. Also a great place for celebrity sightings.

Large menu with exotic flavors. I am allergic to peanuts, Servers have been great allowing me to try most of the dishes by ordering peanut free versions. Noise level is high unless you come early or for lunch. Wine and beer only

Food was ok, but very over-priced for what you got. Wouldn't choose to return as there are other places with better food at more reasonable prices in downtown MB.

Love this little spot. Can get crowded and it's a little noisy but the food is excellent! Really love the attention to detail and authentic flavors. Consistently delicious. Pork belly and lemongrass chicken are excellent as are all of their noodle dishes
