    The chicken pho here doesn't have that traditional taste you'd get from a mom and pop place but it's okay.

    Very exotic take on the Chinese bao -- fusion at it's best. First timers start our with the original bao.

    Sit down first with a menu at table you want then go up and order. Don't stand around at cash register and rush trying to figure out what you want.

    Good food, good prices. But identical to Kogi and Flying Pig's menu at times. I know those were variations on other food as well but come on: try to be a little different.
