Deep smokey, herbally Pho broth, good meat quality, good stirfry dishes and surprisingly sushi wasn't half bad. Much better than other Vietnamese offerings in Kelowna.

Ordered Chicken Pad Thai for take out. So disappointed it was mostly noodles , a couple of vegetables and there was pieces of chicken skin. Never ever go there again.

This was about the fifth time I've been to Hoang Gia in Kelowna. I have really enjoyed the food I've had here and so have my guests. Today was a very different experience. I was with two companions, one who really enjoys Vietnamese food and...one who is on the fence. I ordered a noodle bowl. I was offered the option of one spring roll and two skewers or two spring rolls and one skewer, I ordered the two spring rolls and one skewer. My companion who enjoys Vietnamese food wanted a noodle bowl but with tofu instead of meat. This caused a large problem. Our server said that could not be done at all and recommended the vegetarian stir fry. My companion did not want a stir fry and insisted on a noodle bowl with tofu. Our server went to ask the kitchen and came back to say okay, we'll do it but only for you and only this once. Weird! My other companion ordered a chicken stir fry. Before the meals were delivered, a plate with two spring rolls on it appeared. When I queried that explaining that I had thought I'd get a noodle bowl with two spring rolls in it, our server replied that she thought I would want to share them with my companions. When the food came it tasted good but the chicken stir fry was made with beef and my noodle bowl was very spicy. Too spicy. I've been eating Vietnamese food for about 20 years and except for a little chili in the fish sauce, I've never had such a spicy one. The food was brought to our table by a person I think was the cook. She came to say that in future they would not prepare the noodle bowl with tofu - that she had done it specially but would not do it again. She then stated that the vegetarian stir fry was exactly the same as the noodle bowl except for the way it was served. We did not believe her! Sadly, I will have to find a different option for Vietnamese food in Kelowna. Too badMore

Stopped in at our favorite Vietnamese Restaurant. We both had the Wor Wonton soup. Large bowl came fairly quickly after ordering. Came with 2 medium shrimp, 2 pieces of sliced pork, lots of different veggies and of course lots of loaded wonton. Was definitely full...after finishing the whole bowl. Came to $36.80 for 2 people all in. Reasonable price for what you get. All covid protocol was in place. Cheers GregMore

Every city I travel to, I search out the Vietnamese restaurants. Most places have the wrong noodle proportions, lack of herbs, or the wrong seasoned dressings. Not this Hoang Gia! Every single mouthful was perfect! Each course accompanied by the right dressing and some perfectly...fresh greens. All in not only generous proportions, but with ingredients in perfect balance. Pork Gyosa: 10/10 Tuna Tataki: 10/10 Edamame: 10/10 House Special Pho: 10/10 Hoang Gia rates among my top three favourite Vietnamese restaurants in North America (along with the defunct Merveilles du Vietnam in Montreal, and the one in West Palm Beach who's name I've forgotten). I can say nothing about the dining room, as this was take-out. But my appreciation of the food and amazing flavours (to this cilantro lover) was unparalleled,. Thank you Hoang Gia, you made my evening!More

First meal in Kelowna, on our way to bus downtown. Pho was OK and good size. It hit the spot. The place was busy during the lunch time service.

We decided to have lunch before going to Costco and visited Huang Gia. It looks very salubrious from the outside but we had to wait for a table once we were inside. It was very busy but the wait was worth it. I had a...great lunch and the service was excellent. Very clean and good value for the dollar. My green curry chicken was very good but my wife was not so happy with her choice as she said there were too many noodles. Next time she will order a stir fry.More

Food quality is quite nice, reasonable price. Good selections of Vietnamese items, and some Japanese as well. May take a little time to get a seat.

We had a noodle dish with a piece of chicken that was raw. The rest was ok although tasteless. We ate it because it took a long time (25 minutes) to arrive. When I pointed out the raw piece the waitress vanished and a second...server arrived who said she would report it to the kitchen. They didn’t care. The bill included the offensive dish. I am a senior. Raw chicken can make me very sick. I didn’t leave a tip. I know the waitress didn’t cook the food but she was entirely unconcerned. If she doesn’t care about me then I don’t care about her.More

It was a delightful treat to find this place and be able to enjoy a couple of their delectable dishes served here. Their pricing was not high for what they delivered. The seating was quite comfortable.

We come here every month or so, usually for a bowl of pho but sometime we try other items and it’s always good. The lemongrass chicken vermicelli is very tasty. Sometimes the quality of the meat in some of the dishes is not 100% which...is disappointing and why they don’t get 5 stars. The service is fast and good, prices are fair and usually we are very happy with our meals. If they took the care to cut out the fatty chicken or the chewy beef, this would be five stars but alas, they still need some care in the kitchen.More

We are glad to have found this place for pho. We moved to Lake Country almost 2 years ago and have not be able to find a Vietnamese restaurant in the Central Okanagan that serves the genuine North American version of pho until now. We...had the large House Special Pho and the portion was huge as it typically should be. The ingredients were very tasty although the meat was a bit over-cooked and tough. Normally the meat should be cooked just by the heat of the broth alone. The broth was tasty and very typical and the noodle had the right texture. This restaurant will be our go-to restaurant for pho from now on.More
