Unexpected there is a Vietnamese restaurant in this small town. There are many choices, with either noodle or rice, but there was no big surprise of the food, whilst it was abit pricey actually, for example a bowl of chicken noodles costs almost CAD15 already.

Go here regularly for lunch with colleagues. Regularly choose spring rolls and vermicelli bowl. Can be very busy, good to arrive a few minutes early before noon.

Definitely the most expensive Vietnamese food we've ever had. Appetizers were so-so, but pho broth was pretty good. Good to have on a -30 deg cold day in YK.

I really enjoyed my lunch here. I had a vermicelli bowl with bbq pork and a spring roll. It tasted fresh and was flavourful and judging from all the content customers around me, others loved their meals as well. It was a bit pricey but...More
