haha that place used to be a really small family run restaurant with excellent "bo jai faan" (rice in those little ceramic pots)... it was REALLY GOOD, too bad it never caught on and they closed... but yeah it was called "relax" or something and their main decor was anything nautical

bringing a thread back from the dead.....

A friend of mine is coming to visit and my main pho place (Pho Thuan An) was under renovations and new management last time I went to go there.....where is a good place to go in the Burnaby/Vancouver area? Nervous to see what the new managers do to the food....

Is Song Huong still good? Seems lots of people like it here....

^ Song Huong is probably the best for BUN BO HUE.
But the two restaurants i always go is Song Huong and Thai Hoa on Kingsway and King Edward? It's across from Famous Foods

This. The parking sucks and sometimes you have to park at Safeway parking lot and there is a fee.

I never tried either of those restaurants. But I tried two locations of Thai Son. Broadway, Kinda decent, I can taste some msg in it.
1st Ave & Renfrew, It's alright i guess... Better than Pho Hoa.

Thai Son's bun bo hue is way too salty/msg'y.

I read a few foodie blog reviews on Pho Queen in the same mall as Pho Tai Hoa (boat pho), but I tried it once and it was terrible. Noodles were thin and mushy, the broth tasted mainly of MSG and the meat was mediocre.

pho tam ftw! For those concerned about parking, just park in the Safeway parking lot. If you present the receipt portion, pho tam will reimburse you.
