I strongly recommend this atmospheric restaurant to anyone who is looking for a new or different culinary experience that won't burn a hole in their pocket, as everything about it is different. For a start, it's located on a residential street to the south of the French Quarter, where few tourists roam. Next, it feels like visiting an old friend's home, as the chunky, antique furnishings give it a distinctive feel, and the upstairs dining area with cushions on the floor has a wonderful feel of informality. But the main reason to go is for the delicious food—classic Vietnamese dishes such as sour fish soup and prawns in batter—that is served with a smile.
