“Chinoiserie is a cool urban eatery that serves great Vietnamese fusion food. It is often busy but it doesn't take long to get a table (they don't take reservations). The food comes quickly and the wasabi mayo that comes with the fries is delicious. The bao buns are a must to try. They serve alcohol and on summer nights you can sit outside.”
