Chinatown is not the best place to be hungry but Via Cafe was a nice surprise. Spring rolls, pho, noodles and rice dishes were all excellent. I'm particular with Asian foods-this place really nails it!

Cozy cafe in the middle of LA's Chinatown. Cool atmosphere with a little bit of contemporary touch. Took the shrimp summer role as appetizer and was really fresh and excellent. Main course, cashew beef with rice not something special. Overall a nice place for a casual bite if you're in the area.

Thank Backtowork
