This is a very small owner operated friendly restaurant. I have eaten here numerous times (the "no dim sum" review was carelessly attributed to this restaurant). Very good bun and pho, but especially good fresh (large) shrimp rolls. Eat in at one of the five small tables or take out. Don't be put off by the floor, ceiling, and walls. They are constantly cleaning and washing their hands before handling food.

After a 3-week trip in West Canada back in Vancouver, we were tired and wanted a cheap and quick dinner, so we looked at the reviews and went to this place, which was close to our hotel. We were the only ones in the place and it was already rather late. Still, the lady was very friendly and got busy to put our appetisers (spring and shrimp rolls - we shouldn't have!) and our Pho on the table. Everything was tasty and lovely; the only way to go overboard here is on the amount of food; you definitely don't need an appetizer... The gentleman who walked in and then out again was very wrong. Highly recommendable.

My favorite place in the city for Pho with an excellent broth. Simple but fresh menu and the lady running the place always makes us feel welcome and at home.
On a note about the comment about "no dim sum", I think this is about a different restaurant, as there are only about six small tables in small venue.

This place felt like being in mum's kitchen. Very nice lady made us feel welcome. The food is good, and great value. We'll be eating here again
