This is the best Asian restaurant around. The flavors of the food cannot be beat and the prices are fabulous. My daughter had the vegetarian Pho and I the undon soup. Both out of this world. We also enjoyed Boba. Delish!

The food here is very good, consistent, and service is quick and friendly. It is usually crowded, especially during peak times, but the wait is not usually long. I really like the won ton soup and many of the noodle dishes. Portions are generous.

If I couldn't decide where to eat in this area, then I would come here. Good variety, consistently good and tasty. It can get busy but service is fast.

...but genuinely exceptional at this. I had pho, which was excellent. The chow mein my son ordered was full of fresh veg, tender chicken and flavor, and the chicken dry noodles my partner enjoyed were spot on. She loved the Thai tea, and my jasmin tea was just right. The cheque came in at under $25. Lovely people too. If... More

I've never eaten at a Vietnamese restaurant before, but I love Japanese and Chinese food. Was visiting in the area because my son goes to CSUMB. He said it was his favorite place and brought me here for lunch (so I knew it had to be great for people on a budget). I ordered their chow mein and it was... More

The queue outside was a good measure of popularity and quality. The wait was not too long and the food was definitively worth it! We loved the spring rolls. Simply yummie!

My very favorite are the spring rolls I do try something else every now and then that is also delicious but usually end up with Spring again. Just one thing is whoever is rolling them are leaving them a bit loose.

Crowded spot, great food and its cheap! Couldn't believe how fast the service was. We ordered and food was out in 5 minutes or less. 4 stars because it's kind of hectic in terms of the flow and service. Also, they forgot the boba in my thai iced tea :( Great food and good portions for the price. Two dishes... More

We try month to visit this site, if not sister resturant in Seaside (a lot smaller). Always a line - timing is everything- local dive but great food for the price. Traditional food and "fast" but not the franchise type food. Seaside has specials and slightly different but no beer.
