One of my fav restaurants in the world

You cannot visit Vancouver without trying this restaurant. Growing up, I've always loved this restaurant and years later, I still love it with all my heart! The line up will get crazy closer to dinner time. You can make reservations if you have a party of 6 or more. I usually get take it with... read more

The food was incredible! And portions were generous! The area and street in which the restaurant is located is dingy, and scary. But don't let that turn you away; once inside, the hustle and bustle of the staff and the smell of delicious food will make you forget all about it. The staff was quick and efficient, and we didn't... More

I was not impressed with this place. It came highly recommended but the food was not good, at least not for my standards. The menu has exotic items and barely any poultry options. The service is not the best either. It does get full so I recommend you go early. The mango moo shoo shake was very good and fresh,... More

Driving by this place makes you NOT want to go here...but that would be a mistake. Once you get inside you think there is mayhem in how they operate but they certainly know what they are doing. The service is good but the food is excellent...go ahead and go inside...enjoy

This is one of our favorite Asian restaurant in Vancouver. They are always busy, if you come during dinner time, the line up always long. But it's worth the wait. Their chicken wing is the best I've ever have. Crispy, and very tasty. And the hot and sour soup also very good, tasty and refreshing. Those two dishes are our... More

We ate here last night , worth the wait If you've travelled around South East Asia , you'll appreciate this restaurant and its menu. The proof is in the clientele , I'm sure it was 90% Asian. We ate the Beef luc lac , & Vietnamese spring rolls with pork & shrimp, beef pho soup, all tasty & generous portions.... More

First, it's not authentic Vietnamese. It's Chinese-run - not that this is necessarily bad - but the Vietnamese writing on the menu, and the Vietnamese/Cambodian decor in the restaurant, almost makes it feel like the people who run the restaurant are trying to fool the customers. So if it's not authentic Vietnamese, what is it? It's stodgy Chinese-Canadian food, essentially... More

First trip to Vancouver, my son and I were staying in a nearby neighborhood and this was recommended. We got there about 8PM on a Sat. eve, and had a 30 minute wait. It was well worth the wait. Had the marinated butter beef, which was thinly sliced raw meat in a vinegar, butter, cilantro marinade. It was outstanding and... More

The food here (Cambodian and Vietnamese) was pretty flavorful. Most of the items are very meat heavy, so it's not really a good place for vegetarians. The place looks pretty popular. We got there at 5:10 pm on a Wednesday night and had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a table for 2. When we left about an hour later,... More
