This is a good restaurant if you are in Chinatown, are hungry and don't have much money. The service is fast and plentiful. If you are expecting refined food, I would suggest going elselwhere.

We chanced upon this restaurant while touring China Town. We chose it since we noticed that there were quite a number of customers inside(which we thought was an indication of good food).Incidentally, there are quite a number of Vietnamese restaurants near the Chinatown Welcome Arch

Compared to the Vietnamese restaurants that we frequent in Toronto, this restaurant is just average although I would say their service is fast(less than 10 minutes our order was served).There was not enough condiments on the very small table(no chili sauce and Vietnamese fish sauce that I am accustomed to).

The place is quite small with white tables that would remind you of typical interiors of Chinatown restaurants.

In Toronto a small bowl of Pho costs about $6 but here its $7.50 and I still have to pay $4 for half an hour of parking in Chinatown which makes dining in this place quite expensive. My husband ordered combo rice and pork chop which was served in a very small plate. We paid $24 for a small bowl of Pho(the $6 Pho in Toronto is way bigger), 2 fresh spring rolls ,rice/pork combo and 1 soda.

Incidentally, they dont serve fried rice. The menu is quite limited.

Very authentic Vietnamese food in a great location. Service was excellent, food fresh, and while it is nothing fancy, the restaurant is clean, and you know that people are there for the food, not some faux Asian, atmosphere. Great prices too!
