My sister in law raved about this place so I was excited to check it out; however, I only found it to be average. The service was extremely quick and pleasant.

We were looking for a vegetarian restaurant and landed here. The options were many, food was tasty, spicy enough to enhance the taste and the waiters were friendly. Will be happy to go here again if I am in New Orleans.

How could it be that my best meal in New Orleans was a Vietnamese restaurant in the garden district? It's true. The food is delicious and authentic and was filled with locals. Get away from the French Quarter and explore.
