Awesome food, love the variety

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.

Great food! The variety of Vietnamese food is awesome and the flavours are a treat. Portions are generous and prices are fair. This place always seems to be busy but totally worth the wait.

My wife and I have been visiting this gem of a restaurant for over 15 years now! We have never been disappointed with the food, service and location. I never get tired of their numerous Pho selections and won ton soup to die for! We've been to several Asian countries and numerous other Asian restaurants in North America and Europe... More
