Time Out says

Chef Jon Nguyen’s groovy, 20-seat restaurant serves up Vietnamese comfort food in the heart of Little River. It’s a small but mighty space with a compact menu culled from chef’s own family recipes. Tran An keeps it simple with three types of traditional banh mi sandwiches, three types of pho—beef, chicken and vegan, all served with a broth that takes about eight hours to cook—and several options for bowls, such as the vermicelli noodle and salad topped with lemongrass sausage. It also offers a few shareable plates, like the shrimp spring rolls, plus a dessert-like Vietnamese iced coffee. Fans of chef Nguyen’s Politan Row spot will recognize the row of Grandma Sauce near the takeout window. The craveable, vinegar-based condiment is available to purchase and goes well on everything (it even makes bland broccoli taste good).
