Affordable Vietnamese food, properly prepared, is the hallmark of this popular restaurant. The interior was recently expanded to meet demand, but many diners still prefer takeout. It is also worth noting the emphasis here is on the menu, not the decor. Chinese food can be found on the menu, but Vietnamese specialties are the real winners. The soups are large enough to serve as complete meals, while the spring and egg rolls make excellent appetizers. With so many combinations to choose from, it can be hard to decide. Waiters are accustomed to diners being overwhelmed and are always willing to help the indecisive.
