    Do not let the idea of the fusion of Vietnamese & American Comfort food fool you. It is very good. The slow roasted pork sandwich is great along with the spicy fries. Try the Curry Chicken Pot Pie. 👍

    Tasty healthy viet comfort food. Skip the pho — it’s not what you think it will be. Better off going with their porridge instead

    Good food but smaller portions and higher prices than regular pho places if you want Pho. Lots of hipsters.

    The food here is very westernized and not good. The ambience is fantastic (great interior design). The service is absolutely horrendous - slow and rude. Wouldn't come back again!
