Fuck. If they delivered overseas I'd marry their daughters.

EDIT: The father of the establishment clearly remembered me and realized that it was the 3rd time I had been here in 5 days, each time with different people. I have been upgraded as he today for the first time called me "my brother" as he seated me instead of the usual "my friend."
LOL they upgraded u already
DAMN DUDE!

Me: Hi I was just calling to check what time you close?
Man: For you? We are open any time you want we never close!
Me: Oh sweet you're open 24hours?!
Man: No haha just kidding last call is 8:45 then we close at 9:30, 45minutes to eat! Lots of time to eat! We open every day, 7 days a week, all the time!
Me: Oh... alright I'll definitely come by soon!

Yeah, in general, their portions are quite small from what I remember... for their vermicelli, whereas most places come in a big bowl, they serve it on a plate... so obviously there's a lot less food.

They have a coupon in the Entertainment Book though... so don't forget to bring that and a friend.

fuck just got back from it.

hmmmm

soup was blend, has a special chinese medicine taste to it (in a good way) overall it very blend as someone mentioned


noodle portion was on the small side and i order their large special


had their salad roll, it was really good. different kind of penis...i mean penaut sauce. very smooth and creamy

the place was small, but well decorated and clean ( for a Pho restaurant)

prices were cheap $6.40 i think for large


will i go back again? no

6.5/10 for me

i will stick with my PHO VINH

i went to this place call Pho 101, is down on hastings, 3 blocks away from sfu uphill.

the place is a bit expensive, i think it was 6.45 for a small, but is a good portion for normal people, not for those who are super hungry and expect a cheap eat.

they have there special noodles in which the raw beef is in its own plate. The noodles tasted good, and the rest of the soup/meat taste good too. Even the bean sprouts and basil leaves were very fresh, and crisp.

Decor is not something to be excited about, but oh well is pho.

i'd recommend it, i think it just opened a few months ago.

Oh wow! I had thought their broth was excellent as it didn't have a strong MSG/Salt punch!
Everyone must have their own subjective tastes though; I shall try out Pho Vinh soon!

Personally, I'll digress. Pho is not subjective. There are certain elements that make pho "good" and "bad" as there are different styles of pho (North vs. South.)

I'm going to have dinner here tonight at around 6 or 6:30. Anybody who is interested can join me there. I will post a review upon this place later on.

not having a strong MSG or salt punch is good but that doesn't mean we don't want our broth to be seasoned well.

here you go. you should see it pretty easily, cause their sign is bright red.

I only ate their once, and that was 2 weeks ago. I will give it a try again to see if their standard remains the same
