Delicious!

I loved their vermicelli duck soup and fried spring rolls. The menu is ample, so it takes a while to navigate. However, it's all explained well and the pictures help :). The service was good and very quick.

I thoroughly enjoyed the sampling of pho, beef with lemongrass and rice, and spring rolls. Probably one of the best I have had. Friendly service and fast. I highly recommend. The restaurant decor itself is basic but the food is awesome!

Delicious food. Staff was extremely friendly. Prices were low, portions were big. Lots of fresh ingredients and herbs. I had the beef noodle bowl (#219) and my partner had a soup (#110). Both were world class. I had a papaya milkshake with tapioca and it was amazing.

Although the decor is unpretentious and simple, service on a Saturday evening was brisk. Offerings are plentiful and portions are large. This is genuine Vietnamese with fresh ingredients. This place really hit the spot and we will be back if we're in the area.

The place is clean and you get the best bun (Viet rice-based vermicelli) within a 20 miles radius. I had Bun Oc (Bun in clam based soup) for dinner and Bun Rieu (Bun in a crab based soup) for lunch the next day. I was super pleased both times. Didn't try other stuff on the menu, but others at the... More

Great bowl of vermicelli seafood soup and very good fried rice. Nothing fancy, but a neat setup and quick service. Well priced too. Definitely worth a stop!

Nice place for downtown with great vietnamise food selections. I took chicken pho soup ($7 for medium, $8.5 for large), saigon style fried spring rolls ($4 for 2 rolls) and Jumbo Fried shrimps ($12). Food was nice but everything was served at the same time and by the time I finished my pho soup, shrimps became cold... Slow and not... More

We wantedho and our usual hsunt has been closed and will be converted to condos. The Bun Saigon is only one block further south on Spadina so we went in. The service was pretty typical in that a pile of chopsticks and spoons landed on the table along with a couple of telephone book sized menus and an order sheet.... More
