The food is still good, but the waitstaff and their new payment system will stop me from returning. Had to continually ask for items. Needed clean plates from the appetizer to the entree, got none. Actually at one point got up to get chopsticks. At the end of dinner the waiter stands there with a wireless device and is standing... More

My husband and I went to one of our favorite restaurants for Valentine's Day. We had a reservation. We got there 5 minutes after our reservation time. We waited at the door for 15 minutes before we could tell them we were there. A table was cleared within minutes and we were seated. Over 20 minutes went by and finally... More

The atmosphere is a bit lacking as well as the wine selection. To make up for that the food is great! The noodle bowls are outstanding. They are filling but light and refreshing. i enjoy them for lunch because I dont feel lethargic afterwards

Food is good, but more often than not, service is not. It is not a go-to place for just my husband and I anymore, but would consider it for a good place for a larger group.

Style and substance meet the taste buds as every meal we have had here is better than the last! Seriously can't wait until we go here again so I can try yet another sauce that make smile with every bite. Is this for everyone? No, just people who like enthusiastic, knowledgeable service, unpretentious atmosphere, a family-run business and great food... More

Having supported this restaurant since their very early days in downtown Reading, I have reached wit's end. The food can be pretty good, but they have some off nights. Tonight I ordered take-out for 6, left a 22% tip when I picked it up, and arrived home only to discover that 2 entrees had been omitted. On calling the restaurant... More

We are here based on the stellar reviews and were really disappointed. Some of the most bland Vietnamese food either of has ever had. The hostess was slumped over at the front when we arrived and barely managed to peel herself up to go and clean a table for us (we arrived after the dinner rush). Why on earth she... More

I got the vermicelli bowl with chicken shrimp and vegetables. It was light and refreshing with just a little sauce and plenty of meat and vegetables. Also got the egg roll which was very good. Service was attentive and the atmosphere was modern and hip.

My wife and I have eaten here a few times... I always get the same thing - and don't like to venture out much if I've found something I like.... She's tried a few things on the menu - sometimes she likes them... sometimes she doesn't care for them. I decided I would venture out last night and get the... More

1st time food was over cooked. Tried it again with friends. Nice ambiance, nice staff and a different seafood dish was rubbery. Sorry will not be back
