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

The spring rolls are really good and inexpensive. Their pho is good too. Very tasty broth. Our favourite Vietnamese restaurant in the neighbourhood.

Real deal here. Scratch made the old school method. Clean & tidy space. Friendly engaging staff & management. Fat screen TVs QUIETLY in the background. Pumping out GREAT tasty fare to an obviously loyal local following, we were recommended by a foodie ethnic who lives down the road and he was not mistaken. The broth was superior, loaded with flavor.... More

I've only had the pho here and it isn't bad. It really is between this place of Petit Saigon just down the block. This place is cash only while Petit Saigon takes card. Price is right and it's a no-frills pho restaurant. I give it one point less than Petit Saigon as Petit has a bit of an edge in... More

Cash only. Spring rolls that are NOT from Costco but are excellent. Pho is also excellent and has above average amounts of noodles, meat and tau ge. Pho is almost always inexpensive but these guys are about 10% less than other Pho restaurants. Go here and do not be disappointed

I've been coming here for years... All their Pho are excellent... The bun bo hue is great as well. Their broths are amazing... Great depth of flavour is a good sign they make their broth correctly. The noodles are also good. A little chewy but not too much. Their vietnamese coffee and their red bean drink is also excellent. You... More

We went there for lunch and arrived around 1145AM. The place is close to the PNE, and was less than half full but was almost full when we left, eventhough there was some turnover. The restaurant was clean and bright, metal chairs throughout, and limited parking in the back lot. Looks to be a family run restaurant and the staff... More

Family run - a vancouver classic. Every dish it great . Atmosphere is divey, but food wonderful. Inexpensive - look out for big lines at lunch time or weekends !
