Simple location, but clean. The food was good although portions small. Gentleman server was very pleasant. If in the area and seeking Thai, you're safe here!

well, at least it's consistent. this place always looks empty, and has that "sticky" feeling. the food is mediocre. if you're desperate for vietnamese in auburn, it'll do. otherwise, keep driving to roseville, where there are several nice restaurants in the blue oaks area.

We love Vietnamese food, but good thing we were familiar with Vietnamese entrees before trying this place. If this was the first experience, we wouldn't like or think highly of Vietnamese cuisine. Just go down the hill to the Roseville, Rocklin (KT Noodle on Sunset)...More

You usually have to settle for two out of three, but the Bobo has them all. We come here fairly often and have never had a bad meal.
