I enjoyed a relaxed dinner here last week. The service was fine and the food well-priced. The pho was delicious because it was full of MSG so if you don't like MSG in your food I'm afraid you will need to look elsewhere. Otherwise a pleasant, low key restaurant good for a casual meal.

Ate here over a year ago and returned for take out lunch. I had the grilled pork and spring roll vermicelli which is good but i wish it had more fresh herb garnishing. Regardless, food was good but not cheap.

We enjoyed an authentic lunch at this restaurant, including the vegetarian noodle soup, Stir fry lemongrass chicken and spring rolls, and pad thai with beef. The portions were generous and the food was excellent!

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.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
