This restaurant has only changed hands twice. I have been going to this place for almost 20 years. The owners are gracious and the food is superb. This is vietnamese at its best. The food is very straight forward good and authentic. There is nothing diluted or fake about this food. Most customers are vietnamese because they know good food and this place is packed every lunch and most dinners. I used to fly down from the bay area and head straight for this place. Luckily, I live in Socal again and get this food anytime i want. I go quite frequently & take everyone i know to this place. If you are a serious foodie and want seriously good vietnamese food, this is the joint. Their signature dish is always the #1 and the fried shrimp w/ sweet potatoes. just sublime! have fun and good eating!
