Note- cash only!!!!! Always good to know this going into a place ;) Their pho is good. But we go for their springrolls!! They are sooooo good. They do close earlier than some of the other pho locations so you have to plan accordingly! You must get the springrolls!!!

This place is very good if you're down for Vietnamese pho. Their honey pork is delicious. And of course Vietnamese coffee?

This is one of my regular pho stops. The bowls are big, tasty and hearty. The spring rolls are big, crunchy and very good. Service is quick and friendly. It's normally very busy during lunch and supper time so I guess a lot of people like the restaurant also!

Bao Chau is in my normal Viet Rest rotations. There are only a few in town that I can say I love and this spot is one of them. The spring rolls are always crispy and cooked to perfection. The Pho is good and I also like the lemon grass chicken over either noodles or rice. Cash only. Service is... More

Vancouver/Metro Vancouver (Burnaby, Richmond, Vancouver) is peppered with Pho restaurants and most of them are along the lines of "it was alright". My husband has been going to to Bao Chau as his "go to" spot for Pho for over 20 years and he introduced me to it about 5 years ago. Whenever we don't want to cook, we come... More

So I meet up with friends several times a month for lunch and this has been a go to 3 times lately. Normally I have the Pho. Last time I had a combo, teriyaki chickens, pork chop, and rice. Very nice alternative. Quite busy at lunch. My 2cts, Hope this helps.

Coming here for over 20 years and nothing compares to the food here. So tasty!! I eat pho at least twice per week, sometimes more. I try to eat at a different pho restaurant every time but Bao Chau wins every single time.

They have great spring rolls and the broth for their pho is very tasty with great flavor. There is a good range of selection in the menu, with inexpensive prices. The staff is always very friendly, and the owner always makes sure to ask how things went when you go up to pay (cash only!).

Thank F S
