Dong Nai is probably one of the few Vietnamese restaurant I frequent. It has changed owners several times from sibling to sibling until recently to a non-Vietnamese owner. It has average PHO, the Vietnamese specialty noddle soup, given that it lacks all the necessary herbs you usually get from restaurant in main cities (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal). Do not drink the...

I think this place is often overlooked, because there hasn't been a lot of money invested in advertising and having a fancy sign. I frequent several Vietnamese restaurants in Kingston. One night, on a hunt for some Pho- I stumbled into Dong Nai to give it a try. Pho broth is quite good. Their meat (beef) is probably the best... More

Love the food and prices here! A must try if you're in Kingston. Generous portions of food for cheap price when compared to a lot of the other places in Kingston. Amazing pho here if you're a pho lover like me ;)

Our go to spot for Pho and Vermicilli. We usually do take out - ready within 10 minutes. The service is always fantastic, very cheerful and helpful in making suggestions. The price is also bang on!

Reading the reviews on the site I was expecting great things. I even went with the Pad Thai so lauded about. Unfortunately I was sorely dissapointed. The Tofu was virtually inedible, and the rest was merely passable. I also tried the samosa's to see if it was just the pad thai. The Samosa's seemed like they were purchased frozen and... More

Too many excellent dishes to say which is the best. But excellent food, and generous portions. Good for the student budget or for dad

The very VERY best Pad Thai in Kingston!! I've given up trying it at any other restaurants in Kingston because without a doubt, Dong Nai serves the very best.

Have had their hot and sour soup plus cha gio for lunch, and it was decent, even pretty good. Another time I had lemon grass chicken and it was pretty non-descript. I had to add spices at my table to make it taste like much of anything.

If you're looking for a fine dining experience this is not it. The place is a little grubby, the service a little surly and slow, and it's out of the way a bit. But the food's not bad- try the Pho and the Pad Thai, and the prices are right and the servings are plentiful. So being near a lot... More
