Best Asian restaurant I've eaten in for a long time. Try the veal pho soup. Amazing. Malaysian beef fried rice is excellent too and the HK iced tea. They do their research and perfect their recipes before adding them to the menu. It's not a...More

Visiting Ottawa and I was craving for a hot soup and Bingo! I found this place. Great customer service. Not expensive place. Great taste.

If you know what to order, I'm sure this restaurant is good, but we didn't. The grilled chicken chow dung was quite good, mostly due to the perfectly cooked and deliciously seasoned chicken. The vermicelli dish with shrimp flavorless. Perhaps if it had been with...More

It's not often we mess up an order. But mixup sometimes happens, either when drivers gets the wrong package, or we screw up. Sometimes, even customers screw up. But regardless who, we are more than happy to replace a mistake at a moments notice. Just...More

A pleasant blend of Asian Cuisine executed with care, focus, and love. Much thought is put into ingredient, technique, and its health aspect. Being small enough to care, we cater to individual's needs, and know every aspect of our food, since much of it is made from scratch in house.
