When my favourite restaurant in nanaimo was closed today I decided to give this place a try. All I can say is I will DEFINITELY be back! The rice noodles were so fresh and not at all dry or sticky, the "bun" dish was so flavorful and memorable for all the right reasons. Can't wait to go back and try... More

I have only eaten here twice, but both times the food was very fresh, delicious, and artistically presented. Couldn't have been nicer! Don't forget to have the desert, it's delicious....

probably the best Vietnamese pho I have tasted. The broth was spicy and tasty. The extras that we added to the broth were fresh and went beautifully together. Huge portions too leaving leftovers. Can't what to try more dishes. Service is good and the placebos popular so can be busy.

Very tasty fresh soups. Good service in a casual dining experience. Located in a shopping plaza lends itself more to a lunch venue then dinner.

We just stumbled onto this restaurant looking for a late lunch, we looked in the window at 2:00 on a Friday afternoon and it was almost full which is a great sign. We just sat at the bar and ordered soup and a few fresh rolls. Everything was great, the soup base was one of the tastiest we have ever... More
