SPOTLIGHT ON: Coconut Garden Vietnamese Cuisine
We received an e-mail earlier this week that says it all!
"I would like to tell you about our favorite new restaurant called the "Coconut Garden" on the corner of Ellice Avenue and Agnes street. It is a very clean and newly renovated restaurant, that even includes one large round table which makes visiting in a larger group much easier. The food looks and tastes so amazing and the menu has pictures which makes it easy to order if you can't speak Vietnamese. The portions are huge and so inexpensive and their service is very friendly and professional..You won't be disappointed if you try this restaurant!" - Freda
