Had a couple chances to go here after I saw the review in the Georgia Strait. Having loved the Pho place that this restaurant replaced, I was initially a bit worried.

I first came here with one of my students, and was extremely happy with the food and quite pleasantly surprised. The dinner menu includes no Pho, but an excellent mix of other vietnamese foods including rice paper rolls and spare ribs. When thinking Fusion, most people tend not to think Vietnamese but I was VERY pleasantly surprised when I ate here.

I was quite frankly amazed by the food; the flavours and textures are amazing in the rice paper rolls. I have tried the ham, chicken and prawn and have to say the ham is my favourite. The provided sauces, both an apple sauce and a pleasant slightly vinegary sauce, make an excellent accompaniment.

The Spareribs were beautifully cooked and marinated, and I cleaned them quite literally to the bone, not a scrap left on them. Wonderful.

The most recent visit, we also tried the buddha soup, a pleasantly mildly curry soup; again, flavourful and quite nice, with a nice mix of ingredients.

I must also recommend the bitter beer on the menu, absolutely wonderful. A perfect accompaniment to the beautiful rice paper rolls. If you're a fan of pale ale, you'll absolutely love it. Now I just need to find out where I can buy it outside this restaurant!

All in all, highly recommended.

Bargain bites--fills the stomach, leaves the wallet heavy

I was introduced to this restaurant by some Korean students. The only food available in the evening is a korean food called "Samgyupsal", which is basically pork belly (unsalted bacon meat) that you cook yourself and wrap in lettuce. Dieters, look elsewhere.

In my several times of returning, I have very rarely spent more than $20 (including booze--korean alcohol known as "Soju"). I have yet to find another place where I can eat, get so incredibly satisfied AND be decently tipsy for a $20.

Attentive service is a wee bit sparse--it's a restaurant mainly aimed at international students, and in Korea (and much of asia), you have to call for the waitress; it's no different here. As long as you don't mind calling out, service is great.

Ambience is spartan, to be sure. For the price you pay, to expect much more is not entirely reasonable.
