Best Asian cuisine in Ladysmith...I would never even step foot in the others. Family owned business, very authentic, great people. I have been going here since I was a little girl. Never disappoints!

I have always had good food at this restaurant. It is far from fancy but clean and the people are friendly.

The Wigwam serves, Vietnamese, Chinese and N. American food and on the weekends Thur, through Sunday they serve a lovely buffet. We find that their Wonton Soup is the best, most flavorful we have ever eaten. The very best is the Wonton with Noodles and vegetables. Yum. The buffet can be hit or miss, but we've found the food fresh,... More

This place was sooooo clean...we decided to try the buffet. Although not an overly large selection, the quality of the food was very good. Being a buffet ( and not busy), the food was not as fresh & hot as i would have liked. I will be back, but next time we'll use the menu. The buffet is $13.99. I'm... More

We stumbled on this restaurant while visiting Ladysmith for the annual Christmas light-up. When we arrived there were families already seated, waiting for the buffet to put out. The hostess was very welcoming and we decided to try the buffet. The freshness and quality of the food was superb and my daughter and granddaughter and I enjoyed every bite, raving... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find this little place. We have tons of Vietnamese restaurants back home in DC. The food here was good basic Vietnamese. I had the Pho Ga - basically chicken soup with rice noodles. It was tasty and with the addition of some chili sauce very satisfying. My husband had the chicken/fried rice special. He said... More
