Three mains, one entree and one soup for only $45. All the food taste great. We had some Thai but mostly ate Vietnamese. Will definitely be back.

Good food, clean restaurant and friendly staff. Restaurant was full of Vietnamese people, always a good sign. The salt and pepper are sensational, garlic and chive dumplings delicious. Noodle soups are good as well. Good value for money!
