We happened by this place while driving around Nanaimo waiting for the ferry on a rainy Saturday afternoon. There was lots of people inside which is always a good sign. We went in and ordered the pho with rare beef slices. It was excellent with the sprouts, Thai basil & jalapenos on the side. I have been eating pho for... More

We found this wonderful restaurant quite by chance on a beautiful fall day when we were walking in Old Nanaimo. Pho a Dong is completely unpretentious but spotlessly clean and inviting. As seasoned Vietnam travellers, we were absolutely impressed by the excellent food--the lemon grass chicken was superb-- and flawless presentation. The service was prompt and efficient. This place is... More

The place does not look like much, but the food is absolutely amazing! Tried the hot and sour soup and it was piping hot and a good portion size! Will definitely eat here again!!!

We entered the restaurant for early lunch and the restaurant was steady, with plenty of available seating provided to us. The server was kind, polite and served us quickly. We split some salad and spring rolls, which were fresh and tasty, with crisp vegetables and a great crunch. Each of us had the noodle bun and it was a generous... More

Whenever we're in Nanaimo, Pho a Dong is a main stop. Great exercise to the top of the hill from the marina. Very good Vietnamese flavours and a nice selection of items on the menu. Love their spring-rolls and they are always served fresh from the fryer, not warmed up. Salad rolls are very good as well. Soups are awesome... More
