^ People can vouch for decent pho places in Surrey. I think a few mentioned Pho Vinh in Guildford and another where New Town is in Central.

I went to Pho Vinh a couple months ago, and I hadn't had pho in 3 years. It was pretty good compared to the Pho Hoa shit I had before.

Friday Saturday 8
Every other day 7
Tuesday closed.

Yes we close early I know but we're human we need rest, its only the family running it.



On a side note, so we were blogged on Chowtimes.com with Great Great reviews.
Then we just found another website with another blogger with Terrible reviews. I can't believe they ate the same thing......I guess certain things every loves but there will be the select few who think it's mehhhhhh.
BCRDUKES loves it so that's all that counts lo.

Okay, would 6-630 be good for this Saturday? Hope your dinner rush isn't that bad, but at least you'll be prepared for us!

Don't take the bad blog ( http://www.treyeats.com/hoi-an-cafe-vancouver/ ) too personally, you'll have the good (http://bcrdukes.com/2011/06/17/hoi-an/), bad and uglies.

Blogs and the like can only be relied upon to a certain point unless there is some kind of credibility behind the person/blog reviewing the food and restaurant, be it culinary studies and/or work experience in the industry etc. but I personally believe having an understanding of the cultural influences and methods of preparation behind ethnic foods is extremely important. Sadly, taste is subjective and it's extremely hard to fault somebody for not liking certain aspects of foods. This is what I do and do not like about food blogs.

I have to admit, I have been very privileged and at the same time extremely spoiled to have grown up trying different styles of foods. My aunts and uncles grew up and lived in Vietnam so a lot of the times, I was lucky to experience some very delicious home made Vietnamese food (with a bit of a Chinese flair to it.) Having said that, I had to go to a lot of different Vietnamese restaurants in Vancouver, San Fran, Los Angeles, Paris and even Germany to experience how subjective different foods can taste, especially when it comes down to pho.

Don't take the negative reviews to heart. And like I said in my previous reviews - I absolutely love the food at your restaurant. Everything about it from the food, the cleanliness, and the service is excellent. I definitely respect that fact that this is a family run restaurant and you folks take pride in what you do and work extremely hard maintaining high standards of quality. You folks deserve a pat on the back and jerks like me almost never give 10/10 reviews.

Having said that - I saw the review/link posted by K-dub. That in itself is an example of a blog which displays ignorance and lack of open mindedness. I don't take such blogs seriously.
