“Nothing Broken Here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Excellent Vietnamese cuisine with a nice, comfortable atmosphere. Servers are friendly and helpful when making selections from the menu. The dishes are pretty standard for Viet style, but they do have some interesting Regional Favourites. Their crispy rolls are great, but try the salad wraps, they're an eye opener. This place is small looking from the front, but opens up to a very good size venue. My wife and I have been twice, we will be back again!

“If it's not Broken, don't fix it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

We had our first meal at Broken Rice, a Vietnamese restaurant, during Dine Out Vancouver -- although it had been recommended by friends -- and chose from the Dine Out menu. The salad roll and squid appies were wonderful: The roll was fresh, flavourful and beautifully presented; the squid was crunchy and succulent, expertly seasoned and presented. For our mains, my wife had a curried chicken dish that was perfect and I had a duck entree (I believe it was special to the Dine Out menu) in which the morsels of duck were cooked sous vide, then grilled; the duck was perfect -- not too fatty, wonderfully tender but with a lovely crunch. The accompanying veggies were crisp and perfectly cooked.
I'm not usually a dessert eater but the fried banana with house-made coconut ice cream and shaved roasted coconut was out of this world.
Finally, the service was friendly and prompt. I would absolutely recommend trying Broken Rice if you're in the mood for Vietnamese food with an attention to detail.
