Huong Lan is so Yum!

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

This small place is BUSY! You can tell this is a very popular place. A few weeks ago I was wanting Won Ton soup, and my wife wanted Lemongrass Chicken. I remember this place from years ago. We showed up and they were packed. A table quickly opened up and we were ordering. Food arrived promptly, and was excellent. This... More

The Huong Lan offers a good variety of Vietnamese dishes at reasonable prices. A good indication of how good it is is the fact that it is almost always full with customers. It is not a fancy restaurant and there are a limited number of tables, but the service is good and the food is well worth it. This is... More

Being from out-of-town, I have found many decent Vietnamese restaurant throughout the city, but I never pass up the opportunity to return to Huong Lan when I am in the area. The food has consistently been fresh and delicious. The service is always prompt, attentive, and friendly. The menu offers most of everyone's favourite Vietnamese dishes that you come to... More

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....
