This is one of our favorite Vietnamese restaurants in Ottawa & well worth the 20 minute drive. The restaurant itself is small, quaint but very clean with 2 floors to dine. In summer they have a small covered patio, and offer an amazing lunch special for $12.95 (approx) which includes a delicious mixed chicken & pork spring roll (very light & crisp without being greasy!), hot & sour pineapple soup with shrimp, celery, tomato, bean sprouts (the best pineapple soup I've ever had), followed by your choice of entree (my favorite is a chicken curry with lemongrass that's slightly spicy due to the light touch of chili) accompanied by steamed rice & a side salad with fried bits of garlic & shredded carrot & cucumber. Fresh local ingredients are the key here, and the light touch. The price of house wine is extremely reasonable for the Market. I have enjoyed on a hot summer day their homemade lemonade with gin and mint! The service can be a hit and a miss (I've had to sometimes get up from my seat & seek out a server) but generally friendly. I call ahead for take out and it's always ready and fresh. I did try a Vietnamese restaurant a few doors down and it was just not to my liking, and quite a bit more expensive & their spring rolls were heavy and unfortunately greasy. I see they now had their restaurant on FB along with their menu.
