Stopped in based on recommendations and while the service was pleasant the food was disappointing. Had the salad rolls that were very sticky and the peanut sauce was bland. The noodle bowl with spring rolls and BBQ pork was mostly lettuce and noodles (no cucumber and only a few shreds of carrot). The spring rolls were overdone with almost no... More

My wife and I ate here last Friday and had a great meal. We were lucky and caught them between rushes so we didn't have to wait very long and it was quiet. Our meals came out fast and hot. The portions were large but the food was so good that we ate all of our meal and left very... More

But for the fact that I am used to having access to some really exceptional Asian food, I might have rated this place a bit higher. That said, given the fax that it is in YK, they do a fairly decent job overall. The noodle dishes are your best bet, and it is certainly popular with the locals. Service was... More

This is one of my favourite restaurant that I like to frequent in Yellowknife. The food is very delicious and the prices are fairly reasonable.

Once again, the fare at Taste of Saigon was excellent. Vietnamese vermicelli or rice bowls, served quickly and with style. Arrive before noon or after 12:30 to avoid the rush. (Yellowknife is a government town with lots of downtown workers who take lunch at noon!)

I like this place order by number and there's no mistakes even when it's packed your food comes hot and fast. They are always back to fill your water or get you more beverages. Prices are reasonable I don't think you can go wrong here unless u don't like Asian food.

There's nothing like lunch at TOS. The place is usually packed but the service incredibly quick. I get the same thing every time (because I'm boring) but it's always perfect. I don't think I've ever had anyone complain to me about the quality of a meal there - it's always good.

I remember when this restaurant opened and it was one of my top go-to places. I ordered a take-out meal and found it cool in temperature and lacking flavor. It may be they keep the flavors mild to appeal to North American tastes. I'm not giving up yet! Next meal will be dine-in and I'll ask for a meal with... More

We went there for dinner. The service was good. One of the staff (a young girl) was really nice and helpful. We ordered chicken, fish sets ... and were all very tasty. The portion was big!
