Vancouver/Metro Vancouver (Burnaby, Richmond, Vancouver) is peppered with Pho restaurants and most of them are along the lines of "it was alright". My husband has been going to to Bao Chau as his "go to" spot for Pho for over 20 years and he introduced me to it about 5 years ago. Whenever we don't want to cook, we come... More

So I meet up with friends several times a month for lunch and this has been a go to 3 times lately. Normally I have the Pho. Last time I had a combo, teriyaki chickens, pork chop, and rice. Very nice alternative. Quite busy at lunch. My 2cts, Hope this helps.

Coming here for over 20 years and nothing compares to the food here. So tasty!! I eat pho at least twice per week, sometimes more. I try to eat at a different pho restaurant every time but Bao Chau wins every single time.

They have great spring rolls and the broth for their pho is very tasty with great flavor. There is a good range of selection in the menu, with inexpensive prices. The staff is always very friendly, and the owner always makes sure to ask how things went when you go up to pay (cash only!).

Best place to have consistently good Vietnamese pho and lemongrass chicken in town. Very efficient service and the owner, John, is so friendly. The prices are really reasonable and the servings are generous. Our favourite go to place for Vietnamese food.

In my opinion Bai Chau is the best Vietnamese Restaurant in Vancouver. I have been eating at this place for many years. Love their beef broth, chilli sauce and all other appys. Location is also very convenience. If you ever feel for some comfort foods got to give them a try. Always love their soup noodle with "spicy soup"...For any... More

Friend kept raving about this place, so I finally went. I'm not into pho, so ordered their spring rolls. Both the vegetarian and the pork. Pretty reasonable prices. One thing to note, this place is cash only. No problem, as an Asian, I never leave home without a decent amount of cash, lol. Very comfortable place to eat and there's... More

Had #13 pho and #53 spring rolls and I must say it was filling. The broth was good as the previous reviewers said and must be one of the best. The only downside to this place is that they don't open late. After an outing the best food is pho. Had good service and warm atmosphere.
