Went for dinner and they served me, at my request, a banh minh with a fried egg and and a ca phe sua da. And for a moment I was back in Vietnam. Best I've had in Canada. Great waitress and happy owners. This restaurant is going to be my favourite in Vancouver

So good we came back a second time. Very tasty, very authentic Vietnamese food at very reasonable prices. Try the Spring rolls and Summer rolls (first two appetizers.) We shared among 4 people with a variety of main dishes, and everything we tasted was delicious. My wife loved the red bean ice-cream desert. This is a local restaurant, mostly neighborhood... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a quick meal here during a Vancouver airport layover. Papaya salad with beef jerky was great! Worth a trip from the airport; very easy to find.

Food is good but won't be enough if you are hungry. Parking is poor as it share with the used car shop plus very easy to miss. Go when not too hot as they have no air con in summer

One of my favourite places to eat! Great service and the dishes they have are more authentic than most other Vietnamese restaurants in town!! Try the pressed noodle platters! Add all the herbs, veggies and meat into your wrap and the taste just explodes into your mouth! Simply delicious!

I thought it was pretty good but my date thought her Chicken Satay noodle bowl could have had more flavor. Cool big ugly blue fish to greet you at the door.

I don't know much about Vietnamese food, but I really like what I have eaten at the Green Lemongrass. Been there twice and I'm looking forward to go back. I had two different soups: one with duck and the other one with seafood. If one was good the other one was better! Their salad rolls and fried rolls are great... More

We come here once a month as the food is pretty solid. The salad rolls are great and their lemongrass chicken is flavorful. Parking in this complex can be challenging at times. Also, the decor is a little wonky - it feels like we're at a Mexican cantina vs. a Vietnamese restaurant.
