On a recent visit to see my sister we decided to eat at Pho a Dong. What a delightful treat! The other customers were clearly as happy with their meals as we were.

I have had pho in many places on the Island, and this is the best by far. Super quality food, very quickly from friendly staff. How can you go wrong? Everything on the menu features fresh and quality ingredients, from the veggies to the meats. Seriously 5 star joint. Don't expect fine dining, but a warm, homey atmosphere.

We drive 45 minutes from the Cowichan Valley just to treat ourselves to lunch or dinner at Pho a Dong Restaurant. There is no place in the Cowichan Valley (that we have found yet) that makes food like this. Its a treat to take a drive for great food and great service!

I know many people (including me) go there at least once a week or two since they opened. Good family operates this restaurant and food is always so good.

The name of this restaurant is actually Pho a Dong, and it is a Vietnamese restaurant. The service is excellent, and the food is very authentic and delicious, at very reasonable prices.
