Still remember the hype built around it in this thread.

Then this review brought me back to reality about RS recommendations.

Having said that, I would pass on Le Pho, Le Do, Pho Don and Petite Saigon anyday for some Bao Chau Pho
not sure if srs.. bao chau pho is so bland.

Curry Zone is pretty good. $10 for lunch buffet, and $13 for dinner buffet. Good reviews on Yelp and Urbanspoon too.

The thing is, different strokes for different folks. I initially tried it for 2 reasons, it was a few mins from my place and it had 90% rating on Urbanspoon so I said fuck it I can only comment if I've tried for myself.

I thought it sucked pretty hard. If you're into low quality big bang for your buck sushi places such as Samurai Sushi then this is the place for you. Some people know the quality is low but still love going to these places because of the value in big portions at cheap prices. Some actually think their fish is high quality, you clearly have not eaten out enough. These are probably the same people that consider Cactus Club fine dining.

If you like actual quality sushi then don't even bother with this place period. I will gladly see this place rot in hell.

Pho Vinh and Pho Tam are 1A/1B for Surrey pho in my book, depends on which way I wanna drive when picking either . Haven't been in a long time, but Red Wagon isn't too bad.
