Small and unassuming though it may be, this place has earned high praise from the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and other local publications. It offers classic Vietnamese dishes prepared to perfection. Shady and cool, the restaurant seems worlds apart from hectic Chinatown, even though it's actually right in the center. The menu is extensive, offering a variety of pho (traditional Vietnamese soup), rice rolls, plate lunches and entrees. All of the food is fresh, light and healthy.
