“Best Vietnamese food in Calgary”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is my favourite restaurant in the entire city. It is not fancy, but the food is excellent. Don't order a bowl of soup or noodles for one, order several dishes for the whole table to share. The fried egg-cake with hot sauce is so good, as are the bbq beef or pork, shrimp-salad rolls, lemongrass chicken, and salt and pepper shrimp.

“Best spring rolls in the city”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a gem I discovered years ago, before I moved to Calgary, from a friend who lived in the neighbourhood. This is one of our go to spots where we have our favourites and don't even open the menu. The light and crispy wrapping on the spring rolls are incredible and are our favourite in the city. Fast and efficient, this is often a Friday night favourite when we want to eat out but don't want a long, dining experience. It doesn't look like much from the street and the decor eclectic, but the food always brings us back.

“Friendly, great value lunch.”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Often call in for lunch. The soup is very tasty and excellent value for money. Portions are large. The proprietor is always friendly and provides individual bills with no quibbles. Menu selection is wide.

“That which was great is now a waste of time”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

Have bee going for years but not lately so decided to Thursday night. Restaurant which always was full was nearly empty--now understand why. Salad rools were small with shrimps halved and no pork, The sauce was jellied and of little taste. Ordreed basa fillet with vegetables and got a bowl of oyster sauce withe mediocre veg and about 2oz of fish. When we complained the waitress told us we did not know what we were talking about and that we did not understand that Vietnamese is different from Chinese. Salt and pepper shrimp and lots of batter batter but little flavor. House speciak fried rice was best dish of a meal that was the worst we have had in the past 2 years and not worhtthe money.

“Well worth the parking.”
Reviewed July 20, 2011

The best soup in Calgary. If you like Sate or seafood noodle soup you must try it here. No one compares. Just a small place but huge flavor.
