Food is good, service just ok

The pho with lean beef was really good, but I was a little bit disappointed because the beef balls wasn't that good... The service was good until the waitress decided to eat at the same time as the customer... I had to call her 2 times from the other side of the room to get water and to get the... read more

Probably wouldn't return here. The food was okay but not great and it's not like it is super cheap or anything. Service was okay but a little confusing and the 1 waitress seemed super busy. The spring rolls were actually really good though.

Had the chicken pho, and was served quickly and efficiently. The pho tasted great and was one of the better I've been served. Would go again.

I tried the Pho with chicken and beef. The broth didn't have any taste, the chicken was old, the beef I didn't even try. I just ate a 10% percent of mine and preferred not to have more.

Ate here twice in June 2015. Quick, efficient service. Yummy food. Cheap. Pay at the register. The rare beef pho and egg rolls were terrific. Ate the same thing both time, and they did not disappoint. The broth was fragrant and aromatic and did not taste of MSG.

Lemon grass chicken was dry n rice again was cold, left over rice with... More

Have been here several times over the past two-three years. Friendly staff and busy place. Extensive menu. Best to stick with the phos. The other items are just OK. Portions are satisfyingly large and prices are moderate. Don't order the crepe. Takes a long time so other diners at the table are more than half through their lunch before the... More

This place screams average. I enjoyed my pho and avocado shake. The crab spring rolls I had were quite excellent though. Would go back, but would likely try somewhere new first.

Food was just ok, restaurant was not as clean as it could have been. We had the vegetarian Pho and the beef and chicken and the vegetarian was far better. Our waitress was wearing a t shirt with a photo of naked breasts on it so if that kind of things bothers you, you might want to choose another place.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
