“Great place”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

A great place that has been expanded and renovated since the last time I was there. The food is great and not a bad price for the amounts. The service was great and place is still as before, nice and clean! A definate must.

“Good value.. perfect for a pre-movie dinner”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

I like to grab dinner here before attending a movie at Chinook across Macleod. The service is good and fairly fast. The portion sizes are large and there is significant variety. Many of the dishes do not come with noodles or rice so be sure to ask for a serving if you want carbs :)

“Go Early to Get a Table for Lunch”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

I have been going to the Bagolac for lunch for over five years with colleagues, customers and friends. The quality is very good and reliable. I recommend the spring rolls and salad rolls for appetizers. For something a little fancier try the Sea Ghost Fingers, with crab meat and fish paste cooked on a crab claw. Their main course soups have meat, veggies and noodles in spicy broth (beware if you don't like it spicy, and tell your server to make it mild). The soups are served with a dish of veggies and herbs to add to your taste. I like the rice vermicelli dishes, with #82 as my favourite. It has a generous portion of Shredded Pork, Spring Rolls, Charbroiled Pork & Charbroiled Pork Balls. Chili sauce and hoi sin sauce are at the table. Service is fast, and brisk. This is a popular lunch spot so go early to avoid a line-up.

“Delicious food in a restful environment”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

This is a Vietnamese restaurant that will become a favourite of yours. This is the top takeout "go to" for us and where we go for a lot of our special occasions. There is a huge menu to choose from and all the food is fresh. The service is very fast and the restaurant is clean and well laid out. The decor has been upgraded in the last year and is both upscale and interesting.

“No matter what your order, get a side of coconut rice! It is great!”
Reviewed October 1, 2010

As with most Vietnamese restaurants, expect large portions. The menu is huge (100's of choices). If you can get over the mediocre service, it will become your favorite place to dine. Start with some free tea and order away. Our favorite is a plate of coconut rice and an order of ginger-beef to share between two people (usually take some home). Another great dish is their sea food platter with a side of coconut rice.

If you are really hungry, go for a noodle bowl or a huge bowl of soup...you won't be disappointed. If Bagolac is closed, head a couple blocks south on Center Street to Le La's Vietnamese for better service, cheaper prices, and food that is almost as good.
Cheers.
