Revisited this fine restaurant recently and enjoyed the soup with Chicken and rice noodles! It comes with basil, bean sprouts and lime to enhance the flavors. Also, there is hoisin and hot sauce on the table to add to your dish. The large soup, fairly...priced satisfied me with enough leftover to share the next evening with my wife. The spring roll was not its usual hot and crisp, but eatable. The menu is vast with many tasty offerings for your enjoyment.Service is swift and efficient. Also, there is free parking behind the restaurant. Highly Recommended!More

Here you can find the two typical Vietnamese dishes: Phở and Bánh Cuốn, in a variety choices to combine its components. Attentive staffs, clean, low prices!

It’s been a very long time since I visited this local favorite and was pleased with my selection! There are so many choices from PHO to noodle and rice dishes with veggies, chicken, pork, beef and seafood, with ample portions at very reasonable prices. My...chicken with rice noodle soup was delicately seasoned the lots of noodles and enough chicken to take my leftovers home to enjoy a second time! Service is friendly and attentive! Will return soon to try other delicacies. Highly Recommended!More

We went there for lunch and the service was fairly quick and everything was as we would expect in a pho restaurant. The broth was good. I had the chicken and my son and wife both had the rare beef. While they enjoyed in, they...did comment that the beef was "tough". Not something we expected in a pho place. We did tell the staff and they did appreciate the comment. Willing to try it again to see if it was a one time thing. But overall, reasonable prices and good food.More

The restaurant was closing. One of the employees came up to our table. We are in the middle of a conversation. Tells us stop talking, and eat or he is kicking us out. We obviously had to address the terrible customer service. The conversation ended...with him telling us to shut up and walking out the door. Never will I return to this restaurantMore

Even though it is part of a chain, with standardized menus, this one has cooks that can ... The variety for street food is excellent. Not every dish tastes good. And the entrance way is obscure. But the food is good and the value fantastic....My favorite viet fast food place (as in non-resto), in the KW-Guleph-Cambridge area.More

This is part of a chain, and I find all of the stores to be very consistent in their presentation. Someone wrote a good book for the franchisees to follow. This was the first Kitchener location. Still making great, inexpensive, pho with authentic ingredients.

Had it last night. Every time I travel I look for authentic pho and this place did not disappoint. Had take out and I love the fact that they packed the broth and the noddles separately so nothing gets soggy. Beef was cut thin, not...as thin as I like, but this isn't a complaint. Fresh basil and bamboo shoots. If you looking for something tasty and hot, this is for you. Portions are large and the price is very reasonable. Gluten free options available. Just ask!More

Great place to lay back with a hot bowl of one of their many spicy soups or their famous Pho's. Personally this time I went for the shrimp rolls wrapped in spongy rice paper with a spicy peanut sauce.

We have been coming to this popular restaurant for years. The food, especially the Phos, are consistently good. I would give it a higher rating but there are other Pho restaurants that have more items on the menu. And, some of them, like Pho Sunrise,...are spotlessly clean. This restaurant is directly across the street from the Kitchener Market. There is some street parking out front and there is a large lot out the back off Charles St.More

Best thing is the Phos, I think. Rice and meat dishes are good but when i feel like Pho, this is the Viet place I prefer
