Try something else besides pho.

Vietnamese restaurant has a prime location on the esplanade of Gulf Canada Square. Light mid-week evening crowd is likely a testament to the daytime business clientele. Menu has a diverse selection of entré’s besides the ever-present pho. Wine list is standard red and whites. Tea is generic... read more

Rude hostess - ignored by two staff when entering. One guy chatting up the hostess simply walked away while I stood there, waiting for her to engage. Pleasant interior. Bad food that left me queasy much of the afternoon. Service never improved. Don't plan to return, but probably won't matter - I based on the few customers inside, I guess... More

The Oriental Phoenix has been one of my favourite Vietnamese restaurants for years. I am a huge fan of the noodle dishes myself. I have been patronizing this brand since 1999 and can honestly say that I have never had a bad experience. The food quality, taste and presentation has always been consistent. Mouthwateringly delicious!!! The service is quick and... More

The place is always packed and you will be lucky to get a seat at lunch without a reservation. I eat here almost every week when downtown. Won ton soup is outstanding as is their shrimp egg rolls.

Whenever I visit the Oriental Phoenix I always have the Spicy Beef Sate Noodle Soup with Salad Rolls. Believe me this is one spicy soup but still has great flavor.

Overall a proper meal but not the best... More
