My Wife and I ate here while on vacation in Toronto and really enjoyed the food. Staff is very friendly and the prices are good.

Not very clean: the dish was dirty and I found a hair in the dish. The food was not special: I did not like the meat, the rice and the drinks were ok.

Wonderful Vietnamese food with good combo plates so you can try a few items. Unfortunately it was to cold and I watched a young boy playing with the cutlery out on the table didn't seem too sanitary.

I was in town on business for 5 nights and ended up eating here 3 of those nights. It doesnt look like much from the outside but the food was really good. I found the staff to be friendly and cheerful, and the food was fresh, with giant portions! It was always busy when I went in and I would... More

We just walked into this place because our other fave restaurant was closed that time. The food was okay nothing special and the service was very very bad,the guys who worked seem like they don't want to have guests at all. Better go to other restaurants around.

This is not a fancy Asian restaurant. It almost has the feel of a diner. The food, however, is great. I would certainly eat there again. Drink selection is quite limited. If you order water, you get a really small glass. Otherwise you have to order a soft drink out of a can. Try the pho. They have several varieties... More

Very tasty quick lunch of vermicelli, chicken and spring roll. Very fast and fresh and affordable. The service was good and it was a nice break from fast food and heavy western food. The only thing was it was a cold TO winter day and it was chilly by the windows.

The place is very clean, simple, the food is great, delicious, the exotic flavors are the best if you want to try something new. We enjoy every bite.

I agree with the other reviewers. Service is friendly and fast. It's inexpensive. On the downside, the broth was lacking in complexity and flavor. They didn't give that much basil and bean sprouts. There was a fair amount of meat in it. If you're downtown and have a hankering for pho, this place will satisfy it.
