Unpretentious Vietnamese diner

The food was fine. I had the Pho with beef. It was fine. The meat was cooked through, the noodles were good and the spice was subtle, but there. My friend had the satay chicken which was OK. Prices seemed a little high for what we had, but were perhaps in line with Calgary.

I would say food and bubble tea are below average. The soup has more seasoning, you can tell the it hasn't been cooked for hours to get the flavours. Bubble tea is the powder mix, not true fruit. Spring rolls are always soggy. Having said that, I still prefer this over the hospital cafeteria food. Staff are friendly. The restaurant... More

My coworkers and I eat here at least a couple times a month as we work across the street. Everyone agrees that everything they have tried has been very good, we all have our personal favorites, mine are the pad thai #66, the stirfry on crispy egg noodles #73 and the chicken satay sub. Food is also very quick, portion... More

We ordered using the "JustEat" delivery service.. which in itself is a good resource, if you're tired of just being able to order pizza. We love.. I mean, love Vietnamese cuisine.. but the stuff from Saigon Star leaves very little to be desired. I have never seen 2 salad rolls in an order.. it's always been 3, and the charbroiled... More

The customer service at the Saigon Star and Sub leaves much to be desired . The lemon grass chicken has no lemon grass and tastes like chicken sauteed in soy sauce. Be careful not to believe staff if they claim a dish has vegetables. They consider sliced chives to be a vegetable. Watch what they do with the left over... More

The service was surly: my starter was simply inedible, and the main course was greasy. These people serve cheap food at an expensive price, and display more attitude than they have a right to. One to avoid.

I had 30 minutes free before an appointment in this strip plaza and really needed some lunch, I was starving! Great, I found Vietnamese! One of my favorites! But I had not been to this particular restaurant before. I walked in, was greeted by the waitress and seated but had to grab my own menu. I asked what was a... More
