Have been there several times to grab a quick lunch. Sometimes a nice cashier takes Discoxxx card, sometimes another rather straight forward cashier doesn't. Fumes from the kitchen can sometimes be a problem if you care (an issue with many Asian kitchen tho). I prefer...More

If you are looking for soup, this is the place. Delicious pho! The place is small. Enough tables. Good advice for the waiter.

Perfect for a quick lunch outside of the office. You come in, you order and pay, and then you pick up your food, bus it yourself and get on your merry way. It's never too busy, and it's not going to have a million menu...More
