Work in the area and from time to time when I want a decent pho, Bun dish or even a Pad Thai will dine in or grab a quick take out. Read some not so positive reviews on TA and I can't say that I have had a bad experience here & I have worked in the area for 18... More

I ate here twice during a business trip to the area. The first time we are in. I chose Chicken with Lemon Grass from the Vietnamese menu and it was very bland. A colleague had a glass of wine which was undrinkable. Today we had a take out lunch, and I ordered something different (from the "spicy" menu) and that... More

One of our regular haunts. Ostensively a Vietnamese restaurant but they also do Canadian Chinese as well. While food is not outstanding, it is above average and always of good quality and taste. Nice mix of "sharing dishes" as well as single plates. Personal favourites include the Singapore noodles, the rice paper wraps and the pho. Dining room is sparsely... More

I can't recommend this place. I ate here recently and it is consistently mediocre. I have lived in the area for years and once in a while I give this place a chance. It never impresses me. This was a time when we went here with a few work colleagues. Very packed seating and food is the real issue. I... More

A small place which is always busy. The service is very fast. You sit down, menus presented. They come around quickly to take your order. Food arrives 5-10 min max. Amazing. I have had a number of things and all but one I have very much enjoyed. This is the place to go for a quick meal but be warned,... More

The absolute worst general Tao chicken I have ever seen. Tried to eat a bite and had to spit it out. Paid and said how bad it was and wasn't offered any form of compensation. Basically paid 35$ to sit in the restaurant for 10 minutes. My life is food and it was the first time in my life that... More

Been 5 times each time the food and service were good! Love the hot and sour soup! For sure worth a visit.

I went on a lunch hour during the week. The place is busy, so it is very popular. I didn't think it deserves a top 10 status on Trip Advisor. I tried it due to its high ranking. My General Tsao Beef was swimming in a commercial sauce, it wasn't spicy, the beef was good, but the rest of it... More

Hadn't been here in a while so we went during lunch. To my dismay #45 is no longer in the menu (roll up your own chicken in rice papers). I got #38, which is close but involves no wrapping. Speedy service. Fresh food. Only thing about this place is that it's small and too crowded during lunch.
