    This place has the best vegan food in town! The soups are insanely good and spicy, if you can handle it. And you can't go wrong if you let the owner pick out your perfect dish or a new special.

    A must visit for the San Fernando Valley. Enjoy some of the best vegan Vietnamese food available and make friends with the owner named Kevin. He's an awesome Ironman triathlete!

    "Mock duck, uncannily fatty and savory in a curry noodle soup, the ham that rounds out his spicy Bahn-Mi sandwiches, the mock abalone for a creamy rice congee. Worth the trek." —5 Every Day

    This Reseda hole-in-the-wall offers a vegan take on traditional Vietnamese cuisine. Try the Kevin Special, with pho noodles, faux duck and chicken meats, broccoli, shiitake mushrooms, and carrots. Read more

    It’s a little place, but it’s solid. It’s clean, and the food is delicious. I asked for spicy, and as a fan of spicy was happy it actually came as such. I’d you like seafood, try the house special.

    Great hospitality, just go upto the counter and order your food! The paper menu is confusing, best to just order by looking at the food wall of pictures. EVERYTHINGS VEGAN! Made with Non-GMO soybeans!

    I love the ham spring rolls and the Pho!!! I always request different type of noodles to change it up! I am not vegan, but I love the taste of all of their food!

    Everything is Great. Best advice is to just walk in and tell Kevin that you are gingery and he will make some special off menu that will truly impress.

    Amazing VEGAN Vietnamese food that's very "meaty" and satisfying. Bun bo hue if it's cold out, ham rolls always. If you REALLY like spice, owner Kevin can give you his special sauce. Only for brave!

    I always get the House fried rice and the ham spring rolls. They also have a tasty selection of homemade soy milks with minimal ingredients!

    Worth the trip for amazing vegan food, even if you're not vegan. This place might be enough to convince you to like imitation chicken.

    Just tell Kevin what you're in the mood for, noodles or rice, sandwich or plate, hot or really hot (or mild) and let him order for you!

    Kevin is so friendly and picks out a dish for you when the huge menu feels overwhelming. Vegan duck = super AMAZING!

    They make & sell homemade fresh tofu bricks. Their menu items are pricey (most dishes $8ish) but it's Vietnamese vegetarian so that's why it is more expensive.

    The food here is ridiculously awesome, and the service is really sweet. Try the udon stir-fry and tofu rolls. Everything feels healthy. If every vegan meal was this amazing I'd eat vegan all the time.
