The food here is great - Pender St., Downtown location

Heard great things about Red Pagoda, and it didn't disappoint. I've already been more than once, I really liked the Pagoda yellow curry; I also tried a lemongrass chicken with spring roll and salad roll on the another visit. Will definitely repeat.

This place is a little hard to find and it's very small but WOW is the food great! The yellow curry I had last week was AWESOME! I try to have something different each visit but it's really hard when you know something you've had is so good. And VERY inexpensive! I go back every time I'm am in Vancouver.

This is for their location off Pender and Thurlow in DT Van. Great pho. Packed. Cheap and cheerful. Highly recommend and will return.

This place has really taken a nose dive in the last year. The restaurant is not clean; floor, table and menus are all sticky/dirty and the bathrooms were gross. Worse part is the kitchen: I snuck a peak inside after coming back from the washroom - and it is ***flithy*** with food splatters everywhere, food not bring properly stored/refrigerated and... More

This place is busy so get there early for lunch. Turnover is quick. We shifted to Red Pagoda as its close to work and the lineups are not as bad as they are at Joyeux, which is excellent. The pho here is good although the the choices and are not as many as you find in most Vietnamese restaurants. The... More

I have been to this restaurant a lot. I really like their peanut sate soup. I have always had friendly and pleasant service even though the place is almost always full and bustling. Last night was different. The male server was very abrupt, asking us almost immediately after giving us menus if we had chosen a meal. Once we chose... More

We ate here having seen the numbers of people inside and were not disappointed. Lemon grass chargrilled chicken combination plate with vegetable spring rolls, salad rolls with prawns and rice for two came to just over $24 CA and we rounded this up to $30 with the tip. A genuine bargain! By the time we came to leave the people... More

I met a friend here for a quick early dinner. The service leaves much to be desired... My friend and I were talking and hadn't taken a look a the menu. Then our waitress descended upon us until we decided. She wasn't very patient and/or accommodating. She had a stern look about her and I felt like we were wasting... More

We have passed this place many times before we tried it. The decor is tired and worn and the street sign dusty so we never considered it until last Saturday. We were greeted promptly. The server poured us two glasses of water, took our order and returned immediately with a plate of fresh basil and sprouts. We ordered the sample... More

Stopped by here for a quick lunch on a friends recommendation. The decor isn't anything to write home about, in fact they could do with a fresh coat of paint and updating the bathroom, but we were not disappointed with our lunch. The Peanut Sate Pho for 8$ was delicious and portion was so large I took half of it... More
