Best lemongrass chicken in town

Best place to have consistently good Vietnamese pho and lemongrass chicken in town. Very efficient service and the owner, John, is so friendly. The prices are really reasonable and the servings are generous. Our favourite go to place for Vietnamese food.

In my opinion Bai Chau is the best Vietnamese Restaurant in Vancouver. I have been eating at this place for many years. Love their beef broth, chilli sauce and all other appys. Location is also very convenience. If you ever feel for some comfort foods got to give them a try. Always love their soup noodle with "spicy soup"...For any... More

Friend kept raving about this place, so I finally went. I'm not into pho, so ordered their spring rolls. Both the vegetarian and the pork. Pretty reasonable prices. One thing to note, this place is cash only. No problem, as an Asian, I never leave home without a decent amount of cash, lol. Very comfortable place to eat and there's... More

I really enjoy vietnamese food. This is one of the top vietnamese restaurants I have been to. The food is excellent. My friends enjoy it too! Great location, easy to find, street parking available.

Had #13 pho and #53 spring rolls and I must say it was filling. The broth was good as the previous reviewers said and must be one of the best. The only downside to this place is that they don't open late. After an outing the best food is pho. Had good service and warm atmosphere.

I was surprised how clean the washrooms were. I'm sorry to say that most of the Vietnamese restaurants are pretty yucky. The food was fresh and tasty. Service was good. Recommended place to visit.

We're in Vancouver for a couple of weeks and picked this restaurant via trip advisor. It was our first Vietnamese meal and we thoroughly enjoyed it, the restaurant was very busy (always a good sign) and the food good and great value. I'm sure their are similar eating houses nearer the city centre but this is used mostly by locals... More

Super delicious and amazingly cheap. I like the 14 -- rare beef, well done beef, and meat balls. So good! The small is enough food, easily, and the large is less than a dollar more and gives you leftovers for days. I've always found it fresh, fast, and very tasty. Cash only. Highly recommended.

For conservatives to Vietnamese menus, try their Combo A of spring roll, chicken , rice or noodles with a side of fresh roll with either shrimp/ meat & vermicelli, dipped into their tangy tasty sauce. Very healthy meal at a very reasonable price! Not a great pho fan however, most customers seen during my visit, consuming their pho choices &... More
