After eating at numerous vietnamese restaurant over the last 13 years, I always come back to Shawnessy Vietnamese. I have found there are very few other restaurants that can match the taste and value of this one. I try to make a point of always visiting there at least once a trip. Their spring rolls are to die for, for... More

Went with our extended family including 3 toddlers. If you have young'uns, you know how important prompt service is when eating out. After taking our order, we pulled out colouring paper and crayons and didn't even have time to make more than a couple drawings and BAM our table's food arrived -- hot, tasty, and super fast for 4 adults...

Stopped in here for a quick pho bo (beef noodle soup). What I had I enjoyed. It was hot and tasty once I got all the add-ins. Interior décor was appropriate for the cuisine. Will probably try it another time.

My family and I have eaten here many times, the service has always been poor. The food though was always good and a good value, especially the daily specials. The last couple of time though, our meals were luke warm and bland. There are many Vietnamese places around to go to instead.

Pretty good food deep down south, quite authentic, great prices, great value for something not so central to an area filled with Vietnamese food.

Visited this restaurant for lunch. Older looking place with average service. Food was barely warm. Really simple and quiet plain. Portions much smaller than in other Vietnamese restaurants in te area. Seats uncomfortable and not so pleasant atmosphere. Staff with cold faces and careless attitude. I doubt that I would like to visit this place again.

My wife and I stopped for a quick lunch on our way out of Calgary on 4th May. She ordered a chicken dish and found that the meat was overcooked and the sauce was much too heavy and sloppy. I ordered pork and vegetables and, although there was a mound of different vegetables, they were swamped by a sauce that... More
