The best thing about this Vietnamese kitchen is the service. Luis was attentive and helpful, there when we needed him, and wasn’t when we didn’t. He was quick to bring the imported beers we ordered from their rather extensive beer list, and happy to make meaningful recommendations that made our meal that much better. The pho bo’s meat-based broth was delicate and the toppings, though somewhat meager, were fresh. The spring rolls were the biggest hit of all the appetizers — one order of the pork nem Hanoi wrapped in fresh, crunchy lettuce with the fish sauce dipping bowl simply wasn’t enough and we ordered another one. The wonton soup was flavorful, but not awe-inspiring. You won’t find any vegetarian pho here, but you can opt for the veggie dumplings and the papaya salad if you ask for it without the dried shrimp.
