I don't know what was worse, my food or the service. I had pho with rare steak, brisket and meat balls. The steak was very tuff an thicker then I'm use to. The other meat seemed low quality and was nothin to write home about. The over all taste of the broth was ok but I've had a lot better.... More

Tried this place out for dinner as there are so many positive reviews and our usual Pho place isn't open on Mondays. What a dissapointment. We ordered an appy to start (and I indicated to start to the server) and Pho for dinner. The appy came at the same time as the Pho. The appy was pork salad rolls that... More

Been there twice for lunch, it was great, no qualms. Went for dinner last night - nasty. Noodles were cold, beef was tuff, service to order took forever, filthy bathrooms and long ling up to pay via debit machine. I was very disappointed, especially as I told my friend how good it was previously, made me look like a fool.

I came here 3 times now for the past month and all the dishes we ordered were excellent. The spicy beef noodle soup was very tasty, the shredded pork vermicelli dish is so yummy, and the seafood crispy noodle is also very good. The only thing that can be improved is one of the waitresses' attitude. She is not friendly,... More

I've been to Green Leaf maybe ten times and had excellent food each time. We've never been disappointed by our selections from their lengthy menu. I've made a point of eating at every Vietnamese restaurant in Victoria and Green Leaf ranks at the top, although several others are great too. There are some dishes here that most other Vietnamese restaurants... More

Fell short on TA's ranking v numbers reviewing philosophy I think. I am a self-confessed UK ignoramus when it comes to Far Eastern food, but this place fell down on just about the lot. Admittedly no reservation but for the 1st time in Victoria, in any restaurant, found my own table and then sat there for 15 mins before a... More

I stopped in the Green Leaf Bistro for lunch and enjoyed the California roll and prawn tempura. The tempura batter was very light and crisp. The rice in the roll had just the right clamminess to hold the roll together. The ginger was fresh, as was the wasabi and both were in plentiful supply. Service was excellent although the restaurant... More

This place serves much more than Pho. You will want to eat here several times to get a sense of the flavours. Try the green onion pancakes.
