"Home of the exalted roasted Dungeness crab and out-of-this-world garlic noodles" , this Vietnamese-Asian fusion "tradition" on Polk Street "never fails" its fans when it comes to "finger-lickin'" fare "; a few complain it's " not worth the money ", especially considering service is a mixed bag and the once-" fancy " decor is " getting a little tired ", but most agree " the food makes up for the shortfall in atmosphere."

Don't have much pics to share. The minute food are served, you tend to eat everything immediately :)... that's how good the food are. We always order papaya salad, garlic noodles, and cracked buttered crabs. Price I guess is commensurate with the quality of food and service plus ambiance. I would eat though somewhere else with the same quality but priced less.

Went here for dinner to try their famous roasted dungeonous crab and was unfortunately disappointed. While the cranes was cooked well, it was oily with little infused flavor. Not to mention for a 2.5lb crab, there was little meat. What was really good was the royal tiger prawn dish which came with the garlic noodles. I would recommend that and the fried calamari. Stay away from the roasted crab and crab soup, which has very little fresh crab meat. Service was average bordering on unattentive.

Unusual crab! Which made it unique. Small in size or seating but good quality food. No view. Valet car parking made it exceptional. Reasonable price on some good wines.
