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.

My wife and I went to the "New" location of Green Leaf Bistro on Glodstream avenue. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who sat us promptly. We are not well versed in Vietnamese so made what would be thought of as safe coices by most. The food was good and service pleasant. We will return to sample some more... More

Green leaf bistro is my favorite place for pho in Victoria. Green leaf is is clean and decorated with style. The chef put extra care to present their dish beautifully. Compare to other pho restaurants in Victoria, I feel more comfortable dining here. I love their Green papaya salad, and it tastes great.

Lunch here was a great surprise with a few servers doing their best to tend to a near packed house but giving timely attention despite it. Savoury crepe with ground pork, shrimp and jicama was excellent - perfectly crisp and nicely seasoned, filled predominantly with bean sprouts. Vermicelli with chicken and fried rolls had nice cuts of meat and succulent... More

This is the Westshore outlet of the popular Green Leaf Bistro in downtown Victoria. The location at 832 Goldstream Avenue (across the road and a bit down from Tims) is really easy to get to and comes with a very large parking lot. I have a good friend who won't go to a restaurant if it looks "sketchy" from the... More

Its nice to see Langford has a new unique restaurant. I have never been to the one downtown but was extremely impressed with the flavorful food and great value. I have been here twice now and the food is consistent and the staff friendly and the portions large. The food is delicious and I always take home half of my... More

We don't venture downtown too often so were pleased to find this Vietnamese restaurant opened in the Westshore - it was recommended by a client. The food is consistently good, fresh, and prices are reasonable, service attentive and friendly. We have been there six times (dinner and lunch) since going the first time about 3 weeks ago, trying a variety... More
