Solid across the board

Massive bowls of pho served where you can order your usual #1 (special, dac biet) or pho tai (rare sliced beef) for about $7. It was so massive that I couldn't even finish it, which is rare for me. Soup broth is pretty flavourful and of course is laden in MSG. Ample meat slices too. The store front is easily bypassed if driving by, so keep an eye out for the sign. Simple square/rectangular tables and chairs and there isn't too much of the requisite neon lighting often found in Vietnamese restaurants. No blaring music. No loud, rambunctious kids running around. The service is expeditious and for those who are non-Vietnamese speakers, do not distress, two of the servers speak perfect English! With sooooo many pho options lined along Kingsway and in the Victoria Drive vicinity, this family owned restaurant is a safe bet. Free parking in the back (another plus!).

5 stars for one of the best viet soups in the city

Soups are the way to go in this place. I had the chicken soup one time, and pho the next. The chicken soup was lovely…sweet, clear tasting broth. The noodles were soft and chewy, exquisite. Fresh herbs and bean sprouts…the guy taking my order asked if I wanted the bean sprouts boiled, guess I didn’t look Vietnamese. He looked relieved when I said no, why would I want limp bean sprouts.

I’ve also tried the lemongrass chicken, was disappointed. Oily and kind of dry, looked partially deep fried and found it tasteless. Maybe the pork might be better but I have a thing for lemongrass chicken.

I like the staff…I can see how they might be off-putting to some people, but I think they just take their food seriously, and their soups are worth it.

Best Pho in Town

I've made it a personal mission to find the perfect bowl, which can be found here. Their meat is prepared differently than most places (not thinly sliced). The broth is flavourful and delicious... I just can't say enough. There is parking out back if you need it too, as the Drive gets pretty packed, even at night.
