  1. Just tried Luvi (LuLy) this week, Was impressed with their menu and glad to see brown rice papers used in some dishes but when I asked if they had brown rice to replace white rice they said no. Also, one big complaint, too typical of southern Vietnamese food, SUGAR! I ordered a bun thai (soup) and it was the sweetest I have ever had in VN! Almost un-edible! Will try something else to give them a second chance.
