A great option as opposed to Chinese. I went with a friend for supper on her recommendation. Lots of seating. I thought the food and service were very good. Great prices and I would definatley recommend this for supper. I will be back.

Our go-to spot for Pho and Thain and Vietnamese in general. It's not stellar but it's serviceable. Pho options are good, and predictably good. Vermicelli bowls are fairly good, with generous portions for the price. From there, it can be hit or miss. Pad Thai can be good, or mediocre. Likewise other major noodle dishes. Service is not superb, but... More

Took my brother and sister in-law for Thai there first time and they loved it. The food was excellent and service they were quite attentive. We enjoyed the appetizers and tried 4 different dishes which were all very tasty. We always enjoy our visit here.

I've eaten at most of the PBT restaurants. The food was best at the Hamilton downtown location, but Guelph is pretty good. Service can be spotty at this location, but nowhere near as abrupt as that at the Hamilton one. The deepfried rolls are not made on site. Fresh rolls are usually good, Pho is consistent and good value, other... More

We have been here several times in the past year, in small groups or with my family or just with my spouse. If you feel like a nice night out, that doesn't break the bank this is a... More

After reading some of the negative reviews I was a bit hesitant to try this restaurant but I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere and decor were very modern and it looked great. There were a few other tables there but we were served right away and the food came out very quickly. The waitress was attentive and came to check... More

I recently ate here with my girlfriend and ordered the green and yellow vegetable curry. Half way into our meal my girlfriend noticed a piece of a napkin and a small, black foreign object in her glass of water. She checked her table napkin and there wasn't a piece missing, so the napkin piece found in the glass must have... More
