To be honest, they all taste the same to me. >_> Cept the one across Honolulu on Kingsway taste like CRAP! worst pho i had in my life
If you want bad, you gotta go to Cambie and Broadway. There's a 24hr one there. Certain members on this board love it...I think the soup tastes off. They tell me it's an acquired taste.

I always thought that place was called Pho Thai Hoa? Maybe I'm wrong.

Foods different, not the usual MSG ridden place.

I suggest you guys try it out. The soup base is more basily tasting, and minimal to no msg.
+1, Nooch is good shit. They go light on the meat, though. But great atmosphere, decent prices and tasty food. The soup base is great, not too salty/MSG-y.

went to "Vietnamese Restaurant" this morning

customer service is awesome, portion is average, level of MSG was quite low, large variety especially with appetizers, price is ~6.50 for a large pho

Overall its a good place, would recommend you guys to pay one visit.

That food looks amazing!!! You should definitely keep track of names of the restaurants so we can search them out if any RSers are in the area (i plan on going next year)!

Tried Pho Vinh today. The food was pretty good, but I found the soup to be a little too "sweet."

Are there any other pho joints in the Vancouver area that has clear soup with lots of onions? I miss Pho Thang Long.

Anyone been to Thai Son in Richmond? The price is decent.. But the MSG level is low as it gets, plus the place is clean because it used to be a Japanese restaurant lol
