Vi-La is a popular Vietnamese restaurant in Abbotsford.
This is the highest review I've ever given. The food is spectacular - perfect and done right ever time. Go there more than twice and order the same thing and they remember you and your order and ask if you'd like a menu or the "usual". This place is always busy at lunch on weekdays and for good reason. I dunno - LOVE asian foods but only if they're done right and this is PERFECT. Try it out next time you're drving by the MT. Lehman exit and don' t know what to have for lunch and then thank me:)
I don't go to Vietnamese places much anymore as most were quite dodgy. Had to go here with a group after a meeting. All I can say is "WOW". It was very busy but they found room for all of us, albeit at two separate tables. That was ok.
The kitchen was open, the food was fast,superfresh and everyone seemed to be enjoying their meals. The pho soup was proclaimed to be better than anywhere in Vancouver. The salad rolls were amazing and the vermicelli bowls were fresh, tasty and VERY filling.
If I am every back that way I will always eat here!
I have been going to Vi-La for at least two years. The have wonderful soups, and combination type plates, salad rolls and more. We have our favourites and pretty much order the same things time and again. It's a family owned business with the daughters as servers most of the time. They know you when you walk in and the food is always consistant - delicious - and fresh. It's what you would call a little hole in the wall - with great food. Try it I know you'll love it.
