This place truthfully lacks some decor...that being said, Pho was amazing! Best broth, large portions, and fast friendly service. Atmosphere was relaxed and we never felt rushed. Everything was presented with a smile. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Went here on boxing day as it was the only pho place open I could find. I usually go to Huong lan for pho but they were closed. I'm sure glad though or I would probably have never came here. The pho and salad rolls...More

Be aware this is a hole in the wall type diner, dark in the back, best seating by the front windows. Prices are a bit less than we expected. Portions are huge and generous amounts of meat which in other Vietnamese restaurants isn't always the...More

Went to a club dinner with a friend, expecting the same old thing. The food was extremely tasty and the prices were less than I am used to.

We've tried a couple local Vietnamese restaurants and have been very disappointed -- This place was EXCELLENT because it serves authentic Vietnamese. In fact, one was highly rated on TripAdvisor yet it was not at all authentic. We will never be back to that one....More

I had a couple items for take out, the hot and sour soup tasted like watered down plum sauce with giant chunks of raw celery. The vermicelli dish was alright, but one of the lower quality ones I've had in Nanaimo.

My wife and I decided to try a different Vietnamese restaurant in Nanaimo and discovered this little gem. Prices were reasonable with generous portions. I had ban xeo (Vietnamese crepe with vegetables, shrimp, and pork) and my wife had a bowl of pho. The ban...More

Don't be deceived by the location or the look of the place because the food is absolutely delicious and the service excellent. The menu is varied and easy to understand if you're a Vietnamese food neophyte and best of all the prices are good. It's...More
