Have been here many times and keep going back for the taste and price. Went last Wed. and had the rice wraps (best in Kanata) and the beef and shrimp vermicelli bowl. Had enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Can't wait to be back!

Food is really good. But restaurant services are really bad. I don't want to go there anymore. I prefer everyone to not go there.
