Looks generally aren't everything when it comes to Vietnamese restaurants, which can range from bare bones to dive-y. And that's fine by us, as long as we get our pho fix. But when there's a good-looking newcomer, we notice. Dragonfly has a charming, relaxed cafe atmosphere that sets it apart from a lot of its competitors, but it's more than just a pretty face. The food here is phenomenal — fresh, beautifully presented, and bursting with memorable flavors. Goi cuon, filled with moist, smoked halibut, are a welcome variation on traditional spring rolls, and the summery shredded papaya salad is the perfect balance of tangy, sweet, and spicy. As for the pho — steaming bowls of rice noodle soup that are a Vietnamese staple — Dragonfly's herb-filled broth tastes just right.

We ate at the Dragonfly in Tempe, what a filthy poorly run dump. With three tables of people in the place it took over an hour to get the food and when it finally arrived it tasted like it had been sitting under a heat lamp soaking up grease for an hour. The waiter was full of excuses, but could hardly manage water. Would not recommend this place to anyone and counted ourselves lucky to have escaped without a food poisoning incident.
