Sticky tables, flies buzzing around and landing on food. Spring rolls were awful and not much meat in the pho. Disappointing to say the least.

This place is our go-to for pho. We love the salad rolls, the spicy beef soup and the banh mi. Would recommend to go here over similar restaurants in the area. Good for take out or sit-in. Nothing fancy but very tasty.

This is a great place for Pho and not too far from UVIC and Camosun. They’re kind of small—so get it take away.

Another overrated vietnamese place in Victoria. I had bun and it was lacking. The grilled pork was fatty and undercooked. The spring rolls were off (old oil? bad breading?). They never gave either of us chopsticks. My bowl had big chip in it, hopefully not...More

We eat here once a week. The food is delicious, the staff and owner are very pleasant and accommodating, and the price is reasonable for the amount of food you get.
