Being the concierge at ther Sheraton Wall Centre hotel on the next block down, I come here every now and then for lunch.
It is the only place in the general vicinity to get vietnamese food and pho. And when I had a craving one day for pho, I was so relieved to find it so conveniently located in the downtown district. Not too far from Robson Street, and the only vietnamese restaurant within the radius of a myriad of hotels.
Their next challenge is their food. I must say that the chicken pho I had was decent. Not amazing. Decent taste - but only seasoned by some basic flavour. I found a lack of dimension in the soup. THe noodles were however, pretty good. Chicken was scarce. Presentation was pretty good too. I've also tried their specia menus, for the most part it is a very decent value.
This restaurant has potential of becoming a 'hidden gem' given some more consideration into flavourizing their dishes. Compliments to the lemon-grass chicken; complaint for the small rations of it.
Overall a decent lunch spot. Lots potential with the right considerations made. I will be baaack!
