This is an excellent owner operated Vietnamese place in a nondescript strip mall on North Pleasantburg. Menu has over one hundred items on it, including soups, sandwiches, noodle- and rice-based dishes. We had excellent summer rolls and two pho noodle dishes, one with shrimp, chicken and pork, the other with shrimp only. Very fresh ingredients, including lovely fresh basil for garnish. If you're a light eater, you might consider splitting an entree, though, as portions are huge. Also, if the menu says "spicy," it is. Finally, if you have a sweet tooth or want something cool to balance the heat of the spicier dishes, try one of the "bubble tea" drinks, which are really more of a fruit smoothie with black pearl tapioca for texture. (The Red Bean is particularly refreshing, though some may find it sickenly sweet.)

Don't let the name fool you or put you off. This is the real deal (and a real steal) if you're looking for quality Vietnamese fare.
