Best Pho on the Island!

This is by far the best Pho Vietnamese restaurant on Vancouver island. We love this place and take friends and business clients all the time. Always busy, but always excellent food and service!!!!

Service was great. Even the local police were getting take out.... Id give it 5 stars of the decor was nicer but it seemed... More

The food is always good, not excellent. The last time we went there we ordered pho, tea and water. The sprouts and basil never came for the pho, the tea never came, and I had to ask twice for water. It was not busy or peak hours. There are better pho restaurants with phenomenal service in Nanaimo.

Popped in for dinner Saturday with 2 of my kids - all loved our meals. Have a habit of ordering 'favorites' but went with something completely new - now my new favorite.

I have visited this restaurant twice and both times been very disappointed. The first time my friend and I waited for over twenty minutes before even being acknowledged. We ended up leaving when others who just walked in were seated ahead of us. Last night I went again and was told they no longer put cilantro in the pho- because... More

Enjoyed our meal at Huong Lan! Food was well prepared and plentiful. Everything was very fresh and tasty. For an appetizer, we split some shrimp and pork spring rolls that were yummy. We had a delicious chicken and pork noodle combo which was very filling. The wait service was very efficient and friendly. A must if you are in Nanaimo... More

A lot of people writing reviews here have never eaten Vietnamese food in a Vietnamese community where thousands of Vietnamese people live, and will call you out if you are not serving the real deal. I ordered the classic vermicelli and spring rolls with BBQ pork, a dish I have had in Vietnamese areas in Orange County in SoCal, San... More

The food is above average, but the service blew away any we've ever received at a Vietnamese restaurant. We come from Vancouver where there are Vietnamese restaurants everywhere, but the waitresses here are extremely attentive and courteous. We got some very helpful tips on how to get to the ferry terminal, and one of the waitresses brought us a hand... More

Service is always excellent. Food is tasty, made fresh, served hot. Excellent value for the price. Prepare to wait a couple of mins. during meal hour, as this is a popular place.
