Very friendly, with some solid advice. We asked for a kids meal for our two kids to share and they did a nice job of making it into two separate meals. Recommended.

If you like Vietnamese food then this is the place where you can dine as formally or as informally as you want. Most of the other Vietnamese restaurants in town tend to lean toward fast food or lunch service. Although the décor is somewhat dated the dining experience works. What is special about the place in addition to the great... More

The owners of this restaurant use to be in Nanaimo until they sold that location and came to Parksville. They were always so busy in Nanaimo you had to make a reservation. Lucky for us in Parksville that's not always the case (but I'd double check so you're not disappointed). Their food is excellent if you like this type of... More

With the shear number of patrons who give this place five stars any attempt to insert a negative note might be in vain. And, I guess rightfully so. We don't go to restaurants because of the servers but because of the food which here is fabulous. But be prepared to be off-putted as our table of four was on Sunday... More

My wife and I were there on Sunday evening, they were extremely busy but the staff was excellent. They were very attentive and helpful and took time to speak with us. We had the spring rolls, crispy chowmein & curry chicken. Everything was amazing, we will be back.

This restaurant run by a family has excellent food, service and prices. I have had birthday dinners there and they always go above and beyond what would be expected from a restaurant. I have been for romantic dinner, family and with friends. It is a wonderful atmosphere. I always have to take half my meal home because it is enough... More
