We made a reservation for 12 for my son's birthday. The food was excellent and waiters did a great job and were very helpful. We will certainly be back.

So, I will never go to Pho again.
There are too many other good vietnamese options
in Calgary to tolerate this restaurants extremely poor,
service and indifference.
I have worked in the restaurant industry for 10 years
and was appalled by the service, or lack of.
Visiting on a quiet Tuesday,the staff did not come by once
after bringing our food to the table.
No drinks offered, no asking how things were, no nothing.
Finally after waiting a good 20 minutes after being done,
our plates were unceremoniously taken away.
I didn't get a chance to ask to have half my meal boxed as the
waitress put my friends plate ontop of mine to take away.
No dessert,coffee or tea was offered, I had to ask for water.
I understand if staff are not comfortable having a full conversation
because their language skills arent great. My Dad was an immigrant,
so I get that. However, as a person waiting on tables, some interconnection
with the public is neccessary. Bored indiffernce from a person doing any
sort of job is off putting, but it can make a meal at a restaurant intolerable.
The food was okay, heavy on the sauce and a bit light on the protein.
I could have overlooked that if my friend and I werent treated like an
annoyance and ignored. Very bad service and if the managment is intelligent
they will work on these issues as people here generally like to be acknowleged
and treated with some form of friendliness or at least civilness. Never again...
