We chanced upon this restaurant while touring China Town. We chose it since we noticed that there were quite a number of customers inside(which we thought was an indication of good food).Incidentally, there are quite a number of Vietnamese restaurants near the Chinatown Welcome Arch
Compared to the Vietnamese restaurants that we frequent in Toronto, this restaurant is just average although I would say their service is fast(less than 10 minutes our order was served).There was not enough condiments on the very small table(no chili sauce and Vietnamese fish sauce that I am accustomed to).
The place is quite small with white tables that would remind you of typical interiors of Chinatown restaurants.
In Toronto a small bowl of Pho costs about $6 but here its $7.50 and I still have to pay $4 for half an hour of parking in Chinatown which makes dining in this place quite expensive. My husband ordered combo rice and pork chop which was served in a very small plate. We paid $24 for a small bowl of Pho(the $6 Pho in Toronto is way bigger), 2 fresh spring rolls ,rice/pork combo and 1 soda.
Incidentally, they dont serve fried rice. The menu is quite limited.
