Not a fancy spot but clean and pleasant decor. Great food. The kim chi is spicy but delicious. The lemongrass chicken vermicelli was so fresh and flavourful. My son loved his Satay Beef Stir Fry. Great service. As soon as you sit down, they bring you a pot of tea. Prices are reasonable too. Order by number from the menu.

Stopped in for take out lunch and was pleased with their choices. I chose the vermicelli bowl with grilled chicken, beef,shrimp and a spring roll. Service was quick. Within 10 minutes of giving my order I was walking out the door with my lunch. The portion was generous - enough for a couple of meals. It was a tasty meal.

Never had a bad meal, all the food is fresh and tasty. Best home made kim chi I've ever had Have to be there by 11:30 AM if you're going for lunch to get a seat or wait till 1:30 PM when the lunch rush clears out

We try to go a few times a month for the large bowls of Pho (Vietnamese soup). It is always freshly made with high quality ingredients and great flavours. The service is quick and pleasant. My only complaint is that they are only open til 6 PM and not on weekends.

I stopped in to give it a try and i was quite disappointed. Small bowl. No sprouts, lime or basil. Yet its 2 dollars more and smaller then other restaurants "small" bowls. And the other restaurants give you a better soup with all the fixings. I have no idea why other people think this place is the best. They must... More

I love this place, needs a bigger restaurant as it is too busy at lunch, lol. The owners are amazing and the wait staff are very efficient but not super friendly. The food is amazing, the lemongrass chicken is the best I've ever had. It has a sauce instead of being dry and the spicy flavor is amazing. I've never... More

Quan herself is always at the helm, making this bustling little eatery feel welcoming and warm. We have been faithful patrons since they opened. The meals are fresh, flavourful and generously portioned. The lunch rush is busy, but the crowd tapers after 1. The staff are energetic and quick, and the community respects that they make balance in their lives... More

Lunch at Quan's is totally predictable - the food will be extremely fresh and flavourful; the place will be busy, the service friendly and speedy and the bill will be small! What more can you ask for? They certainly have the right formula. The hours are limited - Monday through Friday and they are only open until 6PM. I suppose... More

We have quite a few places we enjoy eating out at, but Quan's is the one that we can walk to - which helps burn off the calories from their generous portion sizes! Only think I can say is not 100% is the decor - but what can you do with a small location in a strip mall? They are... More
