Excellent way to show off Yellowknife

This restaurant never fails to impress out-of-town guests. Great good, excellent service, good atmosphere. I like the food selection and the large portions. Put this restaurant on your list when friends or family visit as its a great example of our great variety of food choices in town

I met my daughter and wife here for a early afternoon lunch. After being coached by my daughter I ordered a nice bowl of noodles and beef. Along with the cold beer it made for an good lunch experience.

This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and my opinion has not changed. It is nicely appointed and very clean but for me it ends there. I ordered Cantonese noodles with chicken. The dish arrived room temperature and my chicken was not only cold but tough. Needless to say I did not care for it. My... More

Quite a popular Vietnamese spot in Yellowknife. The menu is quite big, the service is fast, efficient and friendly and the food is fresh and quite tasty. I usually come here for lunch with work colleagues. All in all a good spot, but gets quite busy. My only complaint is that they only have two vegetarian mains available, so very... More

I eat here often when I don't feel like cooking. Service is fast and friendly however my favourite is to call and order take out which I can pick up after a long day at work and take home to eat. A big serving which fills me right up . Love the spring rolls. A nice change from fast food... More

When this place first opened and for a few years after it was fantastic. Good portions, great variety, service with a smile. Lately service is snappy, but still efficient, but the food has suffered. I'm a huge fan of war won-ton with all of the veggies. This place used to do it right, with the cabbage, carrot, broccoli, bbq pork,... More

Looking for Asian food, I was told it is one of the best restaurant,. The serve is fast, faster than fast food restaurant! The spring roll is good, (2-3 dollar ea), dip with source, plate of rice with grilled pork and beef, taste is good, but size is moderate, rice is American one, which is not my fond off. 越式飲食,每餐20...

Simple, good food served quickly. Two types of hot sauce on the table and the staff were great with kids. I would recommend this restaurant.

My daughters and I are from Toronto, and tastes many good food already. We ordered charbroiled pork with vermicelli + spring roll / seafood roll, and vermicelli with beef and shrimp satay. My daughter loved the taste of spring roll, but I think it's not crispy enough. She likes the combination in vermicelli (no cucumber and peanuts, just lettuce and... More

Being a local and loving Vietnamese food, I am always satisfied. Stay away from the fried rice dishes and anything they don't specialise in. Ok service. Family friendly.
