I went there for lunch on my way to another meeting and was pressed for time. The friendly waitress was quick to come to take our order, the food was quickly out of the kitchen and was very fresh. We were pleased with our meals and the prices, considering location, were phenomenal. I would go back.

I went there with a friend for lunch - restaurant almost empty. These restaurant after asking waiter are franchises and they pretty much do what they want for prices and what and how they serve the food.

This restaurant does not make anything even resembling Vietnamese food...no fish sauce, no mint or basil leaves, no taste! On asking the friendly young Vietnamese waiter about the menu, he said, "Oh this is not real Vietnamese, for real Vietnamese food, I go downtown." The atmosphere is very uninviting. The service was warm & attentive.

We went there for an office party (20+ People): the service was ok , the ambiance was cold but the food was very good and the price was great. I took table d'hote : Rouleau imperial + Grilled Beef and Chicken (both were very good) and decided to go with the fried banana with vanilla ice cream (was also nice).

We dined early on a Tuesday night. The place was already crowded. The meals were large, reasonably priced, and tasty. The service, however, was slow -- we saw only two servers for the entire restaurant! While they worked hard and were pleasant, there were frequently long waits for food to be delivered to the table. Maybe more servers would help... More

Very close to the Centre Sheraton hotel. Surprised when it was only B.Y.O (Bring Your Own) and you could not buy any beer nor wine. A little pricy but very good food. The service was not very nice. Not fast either and quite uninterested in us.

Trendy Vietnamese place, great on Friday night with a bottle of wine. Excellent service, very clean but a little expensive compared to other Vietnamese places.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighborhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighborhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
