So after reading some reviews here, I think I need to make something clear- this is not a restaurant that tries to make up for its uninspiring dishes with nice decor (like far too many places in the village...). If you set foot in here, its for the food. Hands down, this place has the best beef pho my tastebuds have ever experienced. The crispy noodles (nouilles croustillantes) are also delicious. The owners are possibly the second best reason why you should come here - go more than once and they will remember you, a few more times and you'll be on a first name basis. They are truly wonderful people that have done an excellent job at serving fresh, quality food with an authentic home-made, feel good flavour. And the fact that this place is cheap and BYOB makes it an easy stop for a weeknight dinner or even an unpretentious weekend hangout with friends.

A tiny, hole in the wall in the Gay Village on Amherts street, tucked away is a family run, Vietnamese restaurant. Small cosy and full on a snowy Monday night ...
Its a bring your own wine restaurant ( no corkage fees in Montreal). Cash only.
We had the Vietnamese fondue. A lemon-grass broth with chicken, shrimps, veggies and spicy. With noodles you put in the bowl... There was not a morsel left of it....This is a sharing dish.
I had the green papya salad with little morsels of beef and coriander, my friends had the spring roll and imperial rolls. For desert I had the pineapple which was divine hot and fresh. My friends had the banana. Both were delicious.
They have a menu for $19.00 with entrée, main and deserts. Another one for $22.00 with two entrée a choice of main and desert. Reasonable! The owner was attentive, friendly. We had a lovely evening .. a must try!!

Unpretentious (plastic water cups), good food. Grilled chicken and shrimp was tasty but not as crisp as I like. The table d'hote meals are a good buy with soup, salad, spring roll and dessert included with the main dish. Nice neighborhood atmosphere. Does not take credit cards.

There must be at least twenty vietnamese restaurants in the neighborhood that offer better food in a more appealing decor. We visited based on TA comments but will not return.

This is a small place on a non-commercial street. The food is excellent. This is rare for an asian restaurant but the broth of the soup is so tasteful. Try the fried fruits for dessert, super.
