“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

It's not our favourite vietnamese place, but they close late at 11pm. It's mainly chinese food, and chinese version of pho. The food is still quite good.

“More like a "tribute" restaurant to Vietnamese cuisine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

We have eaten at Vietnam Taste restaurant many times. It is run by Chinese people who speak Mandarin. The food is a mix of Chinese and Vietnamese. They have a fair selection of noodle dishes like "Pho" and "Bun" and Pad Thai (which is eaten in most of South East Asia, not just Vietnam or Thailand), The price is average and the food is adequate. Nothing particularly exceptionally but it is situated near the University and apartment buildings so is quite popular for students.

We frequent this restaurant because we enjoy Asian cuisine and because it is very close to home. Also, unless there is a full house, the food arrives within a few minutes of placing the order. The wait staff are generally "untrained" in comparison to other higher end restaurants so don't expect the same kind of service. Keep your expectations clear and this restaurant will satisfy both your hunger and your budget.

“Great Food Close By - A family favourite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We eat at this restaurant all the time. Its in a small strip mall around the corner from our home. It competes with four other restaurants in the mall. The interior is very basic - you won't be looking for posh dining here. The food though is great. A variety of appetizers (I usually get the Rice Wrap Salad Beef Rolls), Pho's, Soups, bun, wok dishes, rice dishes etc - probably 70 items. We've had the pad thai, various soups and pho and have never been disappointed. The portions are generous. We usually order on-line iwth just-eat.ca or call for take out. If aating in you get tea with your meal. Usually the 20 or so seats are well filled. The service while friendly is nt always orderly.. e.g. you may get your entree before your appetizer. We don't care as we just enjoy the food in this small unpretentious "diner".

“I would not recommend this restaurant!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

My boyfriend and I love trying new restaurants so we decided to eat at Vietnam Taste for lunch one day. We have never experienced such awful service before, I couldn't even get a glass of water during my meal because the waitress did not come by our table once (and not because the restaurant was busy, there were only two other tables taken). The food was OKAY, we didn't hate it but we have enjoyed much much better food at Ben Thanh and TK restaurants, which serve similar meals choices. We will not be returning to this restaurant nor would we ever recommend it to anyone, there are too many other wonderful choices in this city!
