This is a charming place, a step back in time. We were there on a Saturday and were the only customers. I wanted to go because of the bánh xèo (Vietnamese pancake), which was on the web site, but which, alas, was no longer being made. Indeed the menu was very much reduced from the pictures on the wall. The owner (I assume) was proud of his Vietnamese iced coffee, which was perfect. But our food was so-so. I think the owner was the only one in the kitchen. I really wanted to give this place a better review.

We enjoy Vietnamese food and have been to several places and unfortunately this place is past its prime. We were clearly overcharged and the quality of the food was substandard as well as the service being extremely slow.

We were in town over Memorial Day weekend for my son's college graduation. There were five of us in which we sat at a very small table. This restaurant is run by a husband and wife who do all of the cooking and serving. Service was slow because of this. The food was very good but when it came time to pay the owner seemed put off by credit card payment even though it was advertised that they accepted that form of payment. He insisted that the tip was left using cash. It was enforced when he brought the credit card slip to the table to sign and he had crossed off the tip option on the slip.
