    Shaking beef was AMAZING!!! Also loved the ahi tuna tar tar and the presentation of it was really cool with the dry ice smoking out of the bottom. The ambiance of this place was really hip too.

    Happy hour is the best here & the lychee martini is my favorite cocktail & the range of happy hour fare is divine with this papaya salad - yum!

    Great place for cocktails or wine in Mountain View. Try "The Boss" or "The Dirty Old Man." Staying around for something to eat is a good idea too.

    Come for the lunch buffet M-F for one of the best lunches in Mountain View! The tapioca pudding dessert is a personal favorite.

    Unusually trendy, almost nightclub-like, for a Vietnamese buffet. Good selection and inexpensive but no pho.

    Had the Shaking Beef, it was really, really good. Cool metal chopsticks, although I'm terrible with them :( fork available. Stone Pale Ale wasn't great, but they have a lot of other options.

    Value for dishes is not great but the staff was very welcoming for a large group coming in a few minutes before the kitchen closed.

    Order the shaking beef but ask for it medium rare, otherwise it is cooked well done.

    If you want the free tap water, insist on it even if the waiter brings out the bottled water and offers it to you repeatedly.

    Dinner is overpriced and nothing outstanding. And it's TOO LOUD on a weeknight (probably coz of the happy hour). The lunch buffet is better maybe?
