First-rate Vietnamese, best I've had in Phoenix. Tried the Banh Xeo, a shrimp and pork-filled 'crepe', really almost an omelette, lots of sprouts and greenery too. Outstanding! My wife had the Thai beef salad, very good. BYOB.
The owner's daughter(?) was chatting with her girlfriends at the table behind us, and the kitchen misdirected an order of spring rolls to our table. She insisted we try them, and they were very tasty. A charming young woman. Oh, and it's pronounced "seek-lo", a la francais, for the old pedicab out front.
Folks, this is a classic ethnic Chowhound find -- cheap, friendly and very, very good food. Worth a detour if you're passing through PHX. A "Nikki's Pick" in Phoenix magazine.
