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.

A humble little restaurant that serves excellent Vietnamese food at reasonable prices. The food is tasty, timely and served with generous portions. The girls are friendly and efficient. I had the WonTon soup with Salad Rolls.... fresh and flavourful!

I have had take-out dinner from this restaurant many times. The food is always great, and ready on time.

This is a neat little spot in Nanaimo, a cute small restaurant! They should be even bigger! Try the any of their soups! Soo good. It is authentic Viet cuisine! Tons of parking as well.

They don't care about the customer front end staff sucks. We walked in 15 minutes before closing and she says we are closing soon. We turned around and left and will not return!

I have to tell you, I know of so many people who really enjoy this place. I've been 3 times, and on one occasion it was almost packed. On my last trip there was some work being done to the mini mall complex around the restaurant - and maybe that was the reason the crowd was down. Or maybe it... More

I have not been to this Vietnamese restaurant for several years. The last time I was there, an uncomfortable scene with the RCMP & some customers frightened me. So, I avoided going there. My husband wanted to treat me with a lunch date. He surprised me by taking me to Huong Lan's. The first thing that we both noticed was... More
