That is the best way to describe their food. It is fresh and free of additives. My favourites are the spring rolls, nice and crispy with fresh greens, carrots and a light sauce. My go to dish is the vermicelli bowl with chicken, shrimp and spring rolls. I also like their shrimp won ton soup. My hubby's fav is the... More

Looking for something different, found this place and had a great meal. We had the dinner for two - we chose A (there are 3 to choose from). Hot & sour soup was very good, spring rolls, beef dish, seafood & noodle dish and rice - all were excellent. We think we were served by the owners who were very... More

I only come for the rare beef pho, and they didn't disappoint. The broth is very rich, and like most Vietnamese restaurants, they were a little light on the quantity of meat but plenty of noodles and fresh bean sprouts. The restaurant is difficult to find (next to Tanda Shoes) as Google Maps doesn't pinpoint the location in the strip... More

The best Vietnamese in the area. Dishes are alway hot and they use fresh ingredients. Portions are generous. Staff is friendly and will answer your menu question. Menu selection is large. Soups, beef, chicken and springrolls are all favourites. You can add chili heat to your dishes or take it away depending on your preferences. Take out also available.

Go every couple of months for years now. Always great and very consistent and fresh. Love it here and if I had to count I have probably been here 50 times.

Not only a cute place for families, but this family run restaurant serves great Vietnamese soups and dishes. Their soups are flavorful and fresh, while their stir fried dishes bring sweet, salty and savory dishes that are also fresh and delicious. Costs are reasonable and service is friendly. Anyone in the neighborhood should definitely come and visit! Personal recommendations: Beef... More

We went here on a Saturday evening. The menu is daunting. So we ended up getting a special. We started with a hot and sour soup. The tomato base tasted like a can of tomato paste thinned down and thickened with corn starch. The main course included a stir fried beef in lemongrass sauce. The sauce tasted very much like...

I have eaten here well over 50 times. The portion sizes are perfect, the food is reasonably priced and delicious. I have been to several restaurants serving pho and this is by far the best one. There is no shortage of vegetarian options as well. The atmosphere is great and relaxing and the staff are very friendly and in a... More

We have recently moved to Barrhaven and have been trying out all the different places in the area. I work from home 2 days a week and use this opportunity to check out places with my wife during lunch. Having tried a few 'authentic' Vietnamese places in Ottawa, this place was a definite surprise find for us. The food was... More

Wow, it is a restaurant where I go when I feel like eating a soup or needing some great food taste on my taste buds. Great soups, good second course and a desert close to perfection. If you eat there don't forget to ask for fried banana. It is the best that I ate.
