I wanted something hot and not too heavy. The weather was ok but the dampness in the air continues to be bothersome - I guess us Toronto boys can't take the temperate wet Vancouver weather! LOL! Hmmm...I gotta go for pho! But where? Again...open an app - type in Pho and boom. Lotus Pho comes up close by and decent... More

I have become a regular here. They never disappoint, the food is always really good and the service is equally good. Get there early as lunch time gets busy

Great place to be with family and friends. Menu has a wide selection. We ordered a lot for 5 people to enjoy food with no msg! Place can be quite busy you have to list your name and number of people to get in on the line first come first served.

We were invited by a friend for her birthday dinner. The place is actually spacious inside and ambience was fine. The Pho has reached my expectations. On the side, our family is actually trying out various Vietnamese restaurants and compare. So far this the 2nd best we tasted in Richmond. Desserts and smoothies are good. Reasonable price and enough free... More

I'm bit of a pho connoisseur, the broth was on par 4/5. Service 4/5. Atmosphere 2.5/5 loud sports TV playing. Good eats in the area. I'd go again.

While staying overnight at the Accent Inn near the airport, we walked the 1km to get something a little lighter then pub food. Its right on par with the majority of Pho restaurants we frequent in Victoria.

I've eaten a lot of pho in my time... and this place is the best I've ever had. The broth is flavorful, the noodles are done well, and most notably to me, their beef brisket is tender, and very non-fatty. Many pho places I eat at, I usually end up looking at the brisket and saying to myself, "Really?". There... More

This particular Vietnamese restaurant is located on Number 5 Road (at Cambie Road) in the stripmall near the Shoppers Drug Mart. We went out for a late lunch at 2:00 after my workout at the gym. As expected it wasn’t very busy for this time of day but there were probably 10 customers total eating inside and some on the... More

Visited this place with friends from out of town and they were very impressed with the food. They were Asian by origin so I guess their opinion is what I am basing this review. I personally found the service very good and friendly the food was served quickly and really hot. I have had equally good Pho in other places.
