GOOD! – Their specialty is rice flour sheets. You can get them wrapped in meat and other varieties. I also like the green bean muffin (it is fried not baked, don't really know the english name for it) You get a whole jar of fish sauce so that you can drown your rich flour sheets in it!!! The ambience is very old fashion which I really like. (to restaurant owner: don't listen to the other person, don't remodel it) I remember 10 years ago they used to put a lot of meat in the sheets and there were a lot of green beans in the muffins. I guess they are trying to keep costs down. But I still go there. They close really early and I wish they open late. They are located in a strip mall where Vons used to be, now it is 168 market. Next door is the hai nan chicken restaurant.
Rare items – A rarity on the menu, they specialize and serves some of the best crepes and vermicelli rolls whereas most Vietnamese restaurants concentrate more only in noodles. As a matter of fact, their menu is very limited when it comes to noodles and 80 percent of which is geared in vermicelli crepe/roll type dishes.
The atmosphere was very plain, parking was adequate, overall the restaurant do need a make-over. I find their service and accomodation beyond boring, but that's just the way it is in ALL Vietnamese restaurants.
Greasy! – Went there with my daughter for some quick egg rolls and noodles. The worse I have ever bought! So very greasy and the staff made me feel as if I invaded their restaurant. Perhaps I need to be Vietnamese in order to get welcomed into this location!
