Ordered bowl of pho. They overcharged$17 for seafood. Menu said $9.95 I ordered seafood not knowing there was an extra charge for shrimp. Very dishonest

It's places like this that baffle me as to why I don't live and breathe Chinese food. We came here at about 8:30 pm after a long day of marathon mimosas, and it was the perfect fix for everything that was hurting. We ordered the...More
