come pho more

I've had pho other places around the city but prefer this one as the broth is delicious and lots of chicken in your bowl. get the home made spring rolls and you have a great meal anytime this place fills up.so be patient as it's worth the wait

Friends suggested this restaurant to us. It was excellent. The meal was authentic. The vegetables and meet all fresh and unprocessed. The flavours were wonderful and the portions were reasonable. Not a fancy restaurant but definitely a very good one. Will make this a new favourite for Asian fare.

We were out walking in Halifax when our cruise ship stopped there. Gingergrass was conveniently located on our way back. It was busy and that's always a good recommendation. We were so pleased with the lunch we had. The Tom Gha soup was some of the best we've had. It was hot with just enough spice to be interesting and... More

Stumbled upon this gem while out wandering for a place to eat with a friend. The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived around noon, but picked up soon after. We started off by trying one spring roll and one fresh roll, both of which were delicious and served with equally delicious homemade sauces. We then tried the peanut curry,... More

Crab Rangoon is a stroke of pure genius for this particular area --... More

I really enjoyed their beef pho, a daily lunch special. Would have given 5 out of 5 except the lack of air conditioning on a hot and very humid day. If you go for lunch be sure to arrive before noon as the place gets busy early. A great sign of a good restaurant when the locals love it. I... More

We were extremely underwhelmed. Tamarind tofu had a lovely sauce but the tofu was not fried crispy and few vegetables were incorporated; a Vietnamese combo plate included Chinese-style egg rolls, nothing spectacular, and the blandest of baked chicken with no sauce or marinade at all. Expected better Asian offerings in the middle of Halifax.

We stopped in here after having been given a dark table at a trendy restaurant down the street. We left the trendy place when it became evident we were not trendy enough for any service... and passed Gingergrass ... and the food looked great! This is not a "high dining" experience. Gingergrass is just about serving you great Thai food... More
