While there may be little atmosphere here, the tables turn fast, the place is clean, the food is good and cheap and the menu, traditional and extensive.

    banh mi thit nuong (bbq pork sandwich) is my comfort food :)

  • Cheapism on 03/29/11

    Portions are generous and the sandwiches start at $2. A majority of the dishes are under $8 and are more than enough food for one person.

    Duck salad is the best!

  • Gerry M. on 08/02/12

    Get the super-sized, super-awesome sesame balls in the morning, when they come out steaming fresh. They open early at 8, sesame balls were out by 9:30.

    Two words: sesame balls! Another two words: Vietnamese coffee! :-) Enjoy!
