Torn on this one!

If Trip Advisor had a rating that said 'Good' rather than average or very good, I would have chosen that instead. Tank Noodle is definitely above average, so I gave it 4 stars. My partner had the Pho with sliced beef (#47) and loved it. I chose the marinated chicken over rice (#117). The rice... read more

The food was great--fresh-tasting, great flavors, authentic. Don't go there expecting upscale ambiance, the street vibe after dark veers a little on the desolate side.

Had dinner here on a Friday evening. Large dining area, nothing fancy. Huge portions of pho, soups, sandwiches. If you are new to Vietnamese food, you should go to Argyle street and check this place out. The menu is large, and a bit confusing, but the servers were pleasant, and willing to guide you to a good choice. I look... More

Omelette is awesome and not to be missed. Beef pho always a winner. Tried the chicken curry noodle soup and now have a new favorite The depth of flavors is incredible. Very attentive service. Highly recommend

Great and cheap Vietnamese lunch spot. Waited for half an hour and was well worth the wait. Clay pot fish, Bahn Mi, the soup, spring and egg rolls, all were amazing. Definitely going back!

Looking for a quick lunch, we popped into this Vietnamese noodle house based on a friend's high recommendation. The large restaurant occupies a street corner lot and both outer walls are glass, so the place is spacious and bright inside. With what I would call 'typical' table settings and floorpan, this restaurant puts less effort into appearances and more into... More

The restaurant is always busy when we go. The service is fast. It's not for those who seek comfort whilst dining. It's loud and quite cramped, but the food is excellent. Fresh ingredients and simply delicious.

Title says it well. You'll like the openness of the restaurant on the corner. Lunches are very reasonably priced and chopsticks can be used. Even though it was crowded at 1:30 PM, we got a nice table by he window. Larger gatherings are around a circular table with a rotating "Lazy Susan" on top. Food served hot and explanations of...

I love this place - it's pretty cheap, portions are large, and it's popular for a reason. The decor is nothing spectacular, but the food is delicious and the place is clean. It's family run, with super efficient service.

When the weather turns cold, there is almost nothing better than a hot bowl of Pho (or soup). Tank serves up some of the best in the city. Went just last week and had the egg noodle, chicken broth with dumplings, BBQ pork, mushroom and veggies. Super delicious, my new fave. Their pork Ban Mih is also great. No skimping... More
