My hubby is always looking for the best Pho soup - and he says that this is #2 beef satay soup ever. The place is definitely "well used" but the service was friendly and fast. My daughter and I shared shrimp salad roll, veggie spring...More

We don't get to mid Main Street that often, but we were at the farmer's market near by and remembered about this place. A few things, the place is very busy at time, the decor won't make any sense to you, there are things stored...More

Not particularly inviting from the outside, but really friendly service and great food. The waitress, who was also front of house for the take away section, was lovely. She took the trouble to show my daughter how to use chop sticks and explain what sauces...More

Went there at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon, restaurant was empty, we were refused entry because we had a stroller for the little one. Instead of having customers they would rather be empty. Unbelievable.

Went for some pho. Had the number 14 and my friend the number 15. Beef and noodles. Broth was tasty. Sometimes when I try new pho places the broth doesn't have any flavour. Usually pho broth doesn't have much to begin with but this one...More

"Mr Bond" ... Yes, he answers by that name, was so welcoming. My Vancouver friends had ordered 2 off-menu items ... chicken salad (sound boring but believe me, it isn't ... it's delicious!) and braised ox tail (surprise, surprise ... not to be missed!) eaten...More

I was looking forward to trying this place since I am a huge fan of pho. We waited roughly 10 minutes before getting a table since it was very packed inside. I ordered steak pho and my husband had seafood pho. I am used to...More

an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage
