I am a regular and admit food is excellent, but they have ZERO customer service especially the owner lady - she is way beyond rube. I don't know if because of language barrier, but seriously everytime I order for pick up, always wrong. Then, always she refused to show me an itemized receipt but pretty much yelling if I pay...

A tough review, this one is. I really should do 2 reviews; One for food, another for service and price. The food was really good. All of it. We have a Pho fetish and will go out of our way to check out a place that gets good reviews. In Vancouver, there is so much competition for good Pho, it... More

Located next to the city hall and a chip away from China town with a parking garage next door (first hour free), a lot of pho you get is skimpy with a tasteless broth in which you have to killed it with Sriracha..not here, the best of V Pho in Victoria.

We stopped in here on a chilly evening when we didn't want a heavy dinner. I had the beef salad and my husband ordered number 78, the vegetarian soup. Both dishes were delicious. The soup, particularly, had wonderful bright flavors. The service is prompt and the tea is hot. This place has good food at reasonable prices. If we lived... More

Visited this restaurant twice now for lunch and both times have been very good. The food is hot and fresh and service is very good. Food portions were extremely large so if you aren't a big eater - one dish will an appetizer would probably be good for two people. Nothing fancy - a perfect spot for a quick lunch.

This bistro was recommended to us and we're very thankful we gave it a try. We couldn't believe our luck in getting there about 15 mins before throngs of people also got the idea. The service was excellent and even tho the place got busier and busier, the service remained thoughtful, careful and unrushed. The food was very tasty and... More

Visited Victoria for a couple of weeks. Ended up coming here several times. Ordered their excellent and generous Pho soup every time. My wife tried different dishes so I had a chance to try other stuff. All of them were excellent. Very highly recommended. My wife and I decided this is our favorite food joint in Victoria.

We had a party of 8. Service was fast and efficient. The Salad Rolls were tasty. Most ordered #53 grilled chicken with rice. The place could be spruced up a bit, but I suppose that is part of the charm....makes it more authentic. My main complaint is when I went to pay my bill I was going to add on... More

Such good food! Generous helpings of fresh vegetables and deliciously cooked food. # 48 is Soooo good. I have had a number of different dishes at this restaurant and all of them deliver great flavour. I can be in and out quickly or linger with friends never any pressure to vacate. GREAT VALUE.

Thank Leslie B
