Simple, tasty meals. Quite cheap, especially for the Kanata Centrum area. Great place to go for a nice lunch.

We have been here a few times over the years and every time we take long breaks before returning. Good is average, service is decent, not too much to say. Not good, not bad. Portions are massive, which is probably why it's always busy.

We often stop in for lunch and grab pho since the service is so quick and the quality is so dependable. I always get exactly what I expect and pay for and it's terrific food. My friend said it best: "it's not food, it's an experience" Will always be my first choice for Vietnamese.

My wife and I love the won ton and vegetable soups. The service is excellent and the chef will make any changes to the dish according to your preferences. The vegetables are fresh and cooked perfectly. This is a great restaurant to visit before you go to the cinema right across the road.

First of all, it took us 15 mins to find this place. You can't see it from the parking lot and that shopping centre is very ridiculous and easy to get lost it. It didn't help that it was already dark. We were given tea as soon as we sat down and I had to ask for waters for both... More

We stopped into the Ox Head for a quick bite of Vietnamese food before a movie, which was conveniently located just across the courtyard. We both ordered the V16 - vermicelli with chicken beef and egg roll. The food came quickly and was hot, fresh, and tasty, as was the tea provided. Since we had less than 45 minutes, it... More

A large menu of Asian food, Everything from Wraps to Fo. Everything tastes so fresh and full of vegetables, i like the Bun dishes that come with a big bowl of vegetables with your choice of different meats. Highly recommend everyone to try at least once

I've been here twice and both times I've gotten the pho because it's that good! The portions are huge and the price is low! Pho is flavourful, hot and comes with lots of meat/veggies in it! I would definitely recommend this if you're a fan of pho and the restaurant is private and quiet!

My daughter and I went for lunch and the servings were so large she ate the leftovers at work for two days! Very tasty noodle bowls. I would go there again for sure. Oh yes, you have to ask for water. The automatically brought drink is green tea.
