Stopped in on Tripadvisor recommendation. Very clean place, pleasant service and good food. Big portions. Ordered Pho, spring rolls and 2 chicken dishes. All good. Would come back. Kids enjoyed bubble tea many varieties to choose from.

Always delicious! I have never had a bad meal here, always great food and good service! First choice whenever I dont feel like cooking. #54 half rice half noodles is always good for a hangover :)

Usually when you go to a restaurant, if it's a cheap place, you can pick two from price, atmosphere, and quality. Huong Lan has all three! Friendly (and cute) waitresses, a cozy atmosphere, and the BIGGEST, cheapest, best vietnamese food in Nanaimo.

Lunch or dinner, if arrived a bit late, don't leave disappointed, it's well worth the wait! All foods I have eaten at this restaurant have been delicious.

I'm not an expert on Vietnamese but I know good food. This is the first time trying this little gem and it has expanded from it's previous incarnation ( Buddhist pun!). The place is always crowded at noon but I couldn't get my group there any earlier, so we had a bit of a wait! The meals came very quickly... More

Huong Lan has decent soup vermicelli (but is still better, cheaper and the portion is bigger than than Pho a Dong's) but very good rice/dry vermicelli dishes. Most of the time, I go for #54 (Grilled lemon grass chicken, spring roll, and grilled pork served with rice or vermicelli). Usually I can't finish it all and end it up wrapping... More

There is no better quality Vietnamese food and price no matter what city from Maui to Vancouver you are looking in. We have found no comparison and visit usually weekly ourselves or with friends. This is one of my favourite restaurants for quality, consistency, friendly, efficient service and price. All the waitresses work fast and hard! Because of this its... More

We have been here several times and always good food. The restaurant is usually busy. The last time we were there the menu prices had been raised. The service varies from great to poor depending on server.
