This restaurant, which looked like a little hide-away, was highly recommended by my friend, and finally we had a chance to go there. The restaurant is a bit difficult to find as the entrance is small, but it is on 12th Main west of 100 Ft Rd. Close to Yamaha store.
We went there for lunch on Sunday, and the place was pretty relaxed. Ambience was great. A palm tree going through the roof was somewhat amuzing and nice (in the sense that they kept the tree rather than cutting it down just to build the restaurant).
One thing we missed so much in LA is Pho. For those of you who are not familiar with Vietnamees food, pho is noodles in broth. Really yummy. And, there it was on the menu! The pho was great and a dish of crispy spring rolls was also fabulous.
