5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Family run - a vancouver classic. Every dish it great . Atmosphere is divey, but food wonderful. Inexpensive - look out for big lines at lunch time or weekends !

“Great Value- Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

For some reason I had not eaten here even though I had tried every other local place. I finally ventured in and then came back three nights in a row. Only once did I eat in. Every other time I did take out. I will definitely be back as the price and taste were both outstanding.

“The grilled chicken and pork chop combo is SUPERB!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

I make a point to visit this restaurant at least once a week (often 2-3). Had a chance to try the Pho here (leftovers from the kids) and it is solid. The springs rolls are solid, but not the best in the city. What you gotta try is the rice combo with pork chops and grilled chicken. IMHO best Vietnamese grilled chicken in the city without doubt. Nice servings grilled to succulent perfection! Paired with the homemade chilli... GOD.... Simply to die for!

“Best Vietnamese in lower mainland/Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

My spouse, friends and family have been dinning at Bao Chau for years. By far the best pho, spring rolls (you won't get them like this anywhere else) and selection of other Vietnamese cuisine. The quality is what makes the difference here. The beef (if you like beef pho) is rare and good quality – tender, no grizzle or tough cuts. The bean sprouts and Thai basil is always fresh. Everything is fresh. If you are looking for fine dining, this is not the place. If you are looking for amazing, quality food with good family service and feeling, this is the place. If you love Vietnamese – you will not be disappointed. Plus the price can't be beat – cash only so stop at the bank on the way – though you won't need much!
