“Tasty Food at the Little Saigon”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant has a large number of items on the menu and a good selection of vegetarian entrees. The food has a clean, non-greasy aspect to it which is not always true of many Vietnamese restaurants. On my 6 day trip I visited here twice and had the garden curry on my first visit and the tofu hot pot on my second along with the vegetarian spring rolls. Delicious food with friendly service and would visit again on my next trip to Victoria. Not the easiest place to find as it's in an narrow and short street called Langley St., so consult your map to find this gem.

“So yummy!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Best in town - huge portions and great value. Good service in a private quiet restaurant. Excellent food - try the Lemongrass Prawn noodle dish and the papaya salad.

“So yummy!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

In a tucked away corner of downtown Victoria lays one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in town. Cosy and personal with great service and excellent menu choices. Very reasonably priced with huge portions. Highly recommend the Prawn noodles with lemongrass. Yummy!

“Not the greatest Vitnamese I've ever had”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is a fair place near Victoria's Chinatown.
The place is so simple that is almost mediocre, and the food is exactly as you expect: not bed but not good.
Definiitely a place to try once, but not twice.

“Try the fondue”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

This little restaurant is a little bit hidden away on a side street, but it is worth looking for. Prices are moderate and the food is fresh and well prepared. We recommend the beef and shrimp fondue. A large bowl of Vietnamese broth is brought to your table, a portable propane fire is lighted under it, and when it is boiling, your dip your beef or shrimp (you will get plenty of both) into it for as long as you like. It is tasty, and very filling.
