I sampled a beef vermicelli for lunch here a couple months ago. Service was friendly and relatively fast for the lunch crowd (about 15 minutes) with newspapers to occupy you while waiting. There is no seating, so this is take-out only.

Sadly the dish itself was extremely bland with little flavour aside from what was added to the meat while on the grill. Vegetable were not terribly plentiful and the whole dish was plagued by an oily after-taste that I assume came from the equally bland fish sauce.

With limited offerings for exotic cuisine in the Belleville area I approached this lunch with great expectations that I had perhaps found my outlet for Vietnamese cravings. Sadly this was not the case.

Admittedly one vermicelli dish does not a restaurant make, so will adjust this review if my next visit is radically better.
