Good experience

The Pad Thai was very good and had very nice flavour. It had the right amount of sauce unlike other restaurants that either add too much sauce or too little. The Crispy Cheese Wontons were also good.

I am surprised when I read some of negative reviews. The 6 of us all ordered different dishes and they were ALL very good. This is my third time here. Large wanton soup served 4 of us and wantons were fresh made and delicious. I had a meat lovers platter and it was served with veggies and vermicelli rice paper... More

Decent food. Service has improved over the years. Don't order pho during down times you will get a watered down version. Also during down times the chefs all sit at a table to have their lunch or dinner break so you can wait a good half hour. So as you are waiting for your food you will watch them eat!... More

Stopped in at 11:45am on a Thursday for lunch. Waited less than a minute to be seated. Order taken for drinks less than one minute later. Menu presents all dishes very well (with pics) making deciding a welcoming challenge. Reasonably priced ($11-14), steaming dishes on the table 10-12 minutes later. Left very satisfied (with leftovers) past a line of 15-20... More

The food is just amazing. I love it completely and when I used to live in Waterloo I would go there every Sunday. Order the freshly baked Nam Rolls, and any noodle soup. I have a place in my heart for Laksa which is great there. Lots of options and everything always looks very fresh. The price is average and... More

We have eaten here many times and ordered delivery as well. I decided a while back that their take-out food was really insipid...just lots of wilted vegetables swimming in watery juice. But our in-house visit tonight will be my last. Our mango salad was sufficient amounts of mango layered over lots of iceberg lettuce, very little else. I've had much,... More

My Pad Thai was just a huge solid mass of noodles, which was all stuck together. The flavour was almost ok, however there was very little seafood or anything else in it. Wouldn't go back.
