I've reviewed them before but in a different site. This is my go to place for lemon grass chicken and spring rolls. I do like their Pho but not their specialty. I like the bigger spring rolls served here versus the smaller ones in other Vietnamese restaurants as those remind me of Chinese springs rolls and I much prefer the meatier Vietnamese roll dips as they also have clear noodles in them and that sweet dipping fish sauce is so yummy! Previously owned by different owners, was called Lan's then but now its called Saigon Pacific but the menu remained similar. There aren't many Vietnamese joints west of Cambie really. The others on Burrard or West 4th are good and I've tried them all, I keep coming back to Saigon Pacific as their grilled chicken, grilled pork or most of their rice dishes are more substantial in both taste and portions. They have specialty entrees as well but I've yet to try them all. Oh, I do enjoy their curry beef brisket also. The room is clean and recently installed nice LCD televisions so if you are dining alone, there's entertainment. The service is friendly and fast. And they are licenced which is a nice touch. In fact, my spouse has made specific takeout request from there tonight so I'm going!
This is THEE place to go for vegetarians who want to be able to eat Pho with their friends. It's the only place I know that has vegetable/tofu pho, vegetarian spring rolls, and a few other options for vegetarians (although I stick to my favourites!!). I always come here whenever i'm in the area because this is the only Pho place I know that has vegetarian options. And vegetarian spring rolls! I do have it with the fish sauce cuz it's traditional, but the flavour is still so very yummy, even without the meat. Thank goodness for Saigon Pacific!!
