To call Giang's food authentic is to miss the point. Everything she prepares -- from the My Tho-style pho noodles to the thit bo kho beef stew -- is a step or two up the ladder of refinement, rather than the kind of down-home street food you'd expect in a mom-and-pop diner like this.

Transport As you exit the wickets at Futako-Tamagawa-en Station, turn left, go out on the street. Turn right, then cross the street to the Takashimaya department store. Walk back one block until you're opposite the station, then turn right at the pachinko parlor. Walk down a block to the next crossing: Giang's is on the 3rd floor of the building on the left corner of the next small intersection.
