“soup noodle lacks flavour and variety”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2010

I got bambouselded again. I had visited this restaurant some 5-6 years ago. Back than, I complained the broth was tastless and variiety was too limited. (who ever heard of an oriental restaurant with only two page menu. On the glowing recommendations of friends and coworker, I got tricked into trying this place again. (I didn't realize I was hear before till I looked at the menu). Oh well, everybody deserves a second chance.

ahhhgg!! nothing had changed. Still no spicy brooth chicken or beef (though they did offer chilli sauce on the table but tha's not the same). Still no satay brooth. I have been to many Vietnamese in Edmonton and all of them had more flavorable broth then this place. I can't deny this place was busy. Good mix of both whites and orientals. And the price was average. Too bad the food was not so good.

“Best Pho Restaurant in Edmonton!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2009

We come here A LOT! I mean at least twice a month! Well expect for Feb and Aug when they close for a month, that bugs me a lot (just cause there wasn't another good place to go until Pho Hoan Pasteurs opened and nothing could compare to Tau Bay for Pho) but i mean people have to take holidays. The Pho here is amazing, they specialize in Pho and it's really really good priced! It can get pretty buzy here around lunch time on the weekends...well i guess i just mean saturday because they don't open on sundays. If you like Pho you need to eat here!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2008

Easily some of the best pho in all of Edmonton. As someone else stated, they are only open for some of the months out of the year.

Worth the wait!
