Interesting dining concept – order before you are seated and be responsible for your own table setting. Happy hour consists of a wide variety of small plates. We tried a steak roll, charbroiled shrimp skewer and papaya salad. Everything was tasty. The order was filled fairly quickly. The line seemed long when we left – out the door. Going early for dinner was a good idea. Friendly staff. Unique drinks.

I have been fortunate to travel frequently to Vietnam so was curious how the food here would taste relative to back there. The Pho was good and they had some of the herbs which was great. The lemongrass chicken was tasty and the extra hot sauce was tasty.
I would return.

The waiting is ridiculous. Then the pho is way too salty. Chicken was tough and some pieces had cartilage and fat. For all the hype, I expected more.

Classic bahm mi, pho?and three types of curry. Order at the front and wait to be seated. Outstanding cocktails from the bar with an up-scale hipster vibe. Somehow feels very Portland and very true to what it is. Chicken wings are not quite up to Pok Pok level but excellent and half the price,

This restaurant has a wonderful vibe. Even waiting in line can be tolerated because the food and its prices are well worth it. Besides, it moves pretty quickly.
Once inside, you place your order and wait to be seated. If you’ve ordered a drink, it’ll be brought to you and once you are shown to your table, your food promptly arrives.
While the prices are very reasonable the happy hour is really a good deal. It gives you a chance to try numerous dishes without running up the tab.
The food is delicious.
