Loved It!

Great Vietnamese food in Chinatown. Most everything on the menu tantalizes the taste buds. If you have not tried Vietnamese food than stop by at the Golden Bird and have a feast. Service is great. Parking is ample at the car park at the rear. It is crowded during lunch time on weekdays. Great value... read more

I've reviewed this place before and given it 5-stars (for a lunch visit on a Saturday), but I did not appreciate the service this Wednesday evening. The food wasn't quite as good as my last visit and the service (from the owner) had gone downhill. The restaurant's Yelp page says that they're open until 8:30pm Mon-Thur and on Saturday nights....

Over the last year my father and I's two favourite 97th street restaurants (Spicy Garden and Leon's Wonton) have closed, so we decided to try Golden Bird this time and were not disappointed. The dining area was very empty on the Saturday afternoon we visited so we were quickly greeted by a nice man (who I assume is the owner).... More

The food portion is not at par with the price. I had eaten here before only at lunch and ordered the same item. This is the first time I came for dinner and it wasn't satisfactory at all. My family and I have been to many asian restaurant and this one is a joke. I've noticed before that the sauce... More

My husband heard about this restaurant through a friend. We went on a Tuesday night and were the only ones there. Service was, of course, very quick, and our meals came in good time. The food was excellent - the meat tasty and tender. We'll definitely go back to The Golden Bird.

We have been regularly coming here since 1992. I have to say this is the best Vietnamese restaurant in Edmonton. We have tried others but none compare. Our favorite are the lemongrass Bun bowls. They are a good sized portion and are seasoned with just the right amount of lemongrass and hot peppers. The owners are fantastic and call us... More

i love the owners and the food :) It's in China Town and a lot of people go there on their lunch breaks. They put a lot of work into their renovations. Have been going there for almost 20 years. Yikes..I'm getting old. Order the 44.

This place felt and tasted more along the lines of what you'd expect to find in a mall food court. MSG MSG MSG. The food was slathered in sauce to a point of being overbearing to anything else on the plate. Due to the location it's odd the persist since there are so many good restaraunts within 3 minutes walk..... More

The Golden Bird has been a favorite for our family and friends for many years. Have been there for lunch and supper. We never go away hungry, and have always enjoyed our food.
