Quite good

First dinner in Prince Rupert. Atmosphere is typical Canadian/Asian. A little sparse. Food was good. Mango salad appetizer awas huge and delicious. Bamboo soup yummy. Wish someone would do bubble tea right. With actual milk tea flavour options. Otherwise quite nice.

I love going there for the sushi but the waitresses are quiet rude defiantly one in particular I think she's the youngest working there. If she could maybe put a smile on her face and be nice this would defiantly have 4 or 5 stars.

I wouldn't go back here again for the deep fried ice cream. I looked for Herby's but when I called they said they had merged so we went there for the ice cream but it was not the greatest. My husband and sons wanted a specialty coffee with the ice cream but we were told we had to order food... More

The parents have closed Herby's and joined daughter Ann in her Bamboo Shoot restaurant a few doors away. They have merged the menus and continue to offer wonderful Vietnamese food with a Canadian flare. They are also open for breakfast offering traditional Canadian breakfast for $3.99. Check out the Lee's Special, named for our Mayor Lee Brain. Take out and... More

I come here every year to have their black bean halibut stir fry and pad Thai. The sisters are a great duo. They know what I like and remember how I like it. I would most definitely recommend !

The Wonton soup was fresh and tasty, the main Prawn hot dish was perfectly spiced and delicious with the subtle coconut rice. The owner is an expert in managing to serve, cook and provide friendly service. I absolutely recommend this restaurant.

I love vietmenense food, and this place is no exception. Only thing is they don't put out the delicious sauces, Chili sauce or ho sin, the viet table sauces make the meal for sure. Good vermicelli, spring rolls and great iced coffee with condensed milk

I went by myself after work and had the halibut summer rolls and a beef hot plate on vermicelli with a hot chocolate to drink. The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing, the wait staff excellent, and the food and drink both well-presented and tasty. The price is reasonable for a higher class meal, and I came out full and pleased.... More

Atmosphere is pretty good, minus the TV in the background. The food I have ordered has always been tasty, and the prices are decent. Friendly waitress. Definitely would visit again
