We have been going to OxHead for lunch whenever we are in Kanata. Love their fresh roles, pho soups, sweet and sour soup, vermicelli, Vietnamese coffee, etc. Food is very predictable, servings are generous, service is excellent. Can’t wait til we can go again

Went for lunch & had a chicken curry. Nice flavour & good portion size. It was from the main menu, I didn't realise there was a lunch menu! The lunch menu wasn't much cheaper but a couple of interesting dishes on that too. Decent value...More

Went for dinner last night with my wife - food is plentiful and delicious! Service was terrific! The place is not fancy but if you are looking for good food this is the place. I had the crispy noodle chicken! Loved it!

Dropped in to get a quick bite after our movie. This was one of our favourite noodle places but something must have changed since the last time I visited. Although the spring rolls were good, I found the vermicelli clumpy. They did not bring the...More

The service here is really slow, I waited forever for my food. The staff were super rude, and the owner in particular made me feel very unwelcome. Not to mention that the food has hardly any flavour. Not worth it at all.

This place is awful, horrendous, and disappointing. I had tentative hope because of the good reviews but this is probably one of the worst pho places I've ever had the misfortune of eating at in my entire life. The employees are not hostile but completely...More
