My wife and I were visiting Barrie and wanted to try something different for lunch and not something from typical chain restaurants. We looked this place up on Tripadvisor and certainly the positive reviews weren't kidding. It's clean and cozy with a laid-back atmosphere. Service...More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean restaurant. Booths and tables. Standard pricing. Tasty shrimp stir fry and decent spring rolls. Was not a fan of the chicken Pad Thai though.

I've been to a lot of Pho restaurant and this one is very average. The Pho didn't have a lot of beef in it and the beef was sliced paper thin. Crispy spring rolls were a bit on the overdone side.

Lots of food when you order, but you don't have that "omg I ate too much" feeling when you're finished. Food is always fresh and HOT. Services is FAST and pricing is great. Little place tucked away in a strip mall but totally worth it....More

Vietnamese Thai restaurant. Really nice people, very pleasant and efficient. We ordered tom yum soup with seafood (excellent), chicken pad Thai (average), mango salad (excellent), ginger beef which came with steamed rice and veggies (alright, needed more flavour). The food was fresh but I think...More
