LA Weekly's Description

It is easy to order too much here, and you will be overwhelmed if you ignore the rule of five - three small courses, one large course and one vegetable (roasted kabocha with burnt onion and chrysanthemum leaves!) for two people.

But there is too much to love here, and too many reasons to return: boiled peanuts with Brussels sprouts and pickled rose petals topped with a gooey poached backyard egg, often laid just before service, that collapses into a rich sauce; fried sweetbreads taking the place of chicken in a traditional Vietnamese curry served with a crisp baguette; soft, long-cooked pork, lacquered black with caramel, alongside a snowfield of powdered almonds; and the bits of hen, also in Vietnamese caramel, expressive of the mild gaminess of the bird.

    Featured in LA Weekly's "L.A.'s Best Cocktails: Our 55 favorites and where to find them." (Click 'More Info')

  • Dolce&Gabbana on 10/26/11

    This totally unconventional Vietnamese Restaurant in Los Angeles is an homage to Asian cuisine without pretending to be a fusion experiment. Try their Spring Rolls, Thai chili and Bun Cha.

  • Los Angeles Times on 06/06/13

    Chef Jordan Kahn keeps it weird and proud with nominally Vietnamese-based cuisine, and the results are often as delicious as they are startling.

  • Anisha G. on 02/24/11

    The chicken dumplings are a MUST. The Meulenhof Riesling is nice as well.

  • Travel Channel on 08/26/12

    Enjoy this modern take on French and Vietnamese food involving very creative uses of herbs and flowers. Open late until 2 a.m., and very popular with food-service industry types.
