Service was efficient and courteous. There was apprx. 15 minute wait, which we had NO issue with as we were a group of 12 with no reservations, and the staff seemed genuinely sorry about not being able to seat us right away. We told them we were absolutely okay waiting. Food ordering and service was average. We waited a long... More

My previous review was not particularly kind since everything was off on my two most recent visits. My son wanted to go here for his 18th birthday since he has god memories of the food and the offbeat decor. The service definitely isnt friendlier but it was prompt and efficient. As usual, the soup was the last thing delivered to... More

I went for dinner to this restaurant this evening with my gf and didn't have the best experience. The spring rolls were fantastic and the pho was excellent, but the pad Thai was too spicy and the hair that I found in my glass of water killed my appetite.

Have been in Ben Thanhs (Wat, Kitch, Cam) and this was our first trek into Guelph BT. The service was okay (not as good as Wat) and we had to ask for a dim sum menu. This one doesn't have the paper to write down the order so the waitress comes and takes it. The service was efficient after we... More

There is one waitress who is always there and she is the best. Very fast and professional but for the rest of the servers, they all need to be thrown in the trash can. They barely smile, they hate their jobs and lives. The host throws the menu on the table and runs off. The manager there she wears whatever... More

Mmmm...piping hot Pho! Our first bowl this Fall and I've been dreaming about it for weeks. They didn't disappoint, the chicken Pho was delicious as well as the Beef Stew. Service was a tad slow as the waitress had the entire side of the restaurant. We asked for tea when our water was served before ordering and didn't receive it... More

The wait staff are generally okay but there is one vietnamese young women who is so rude it is unbelievable in terms of ignoring you...The food is really hit and miss. I had the chicken roll and it was served cold and with stale rice noodles. They took it back to the kitchen and instead of cooking me a new... More

We were taking a couple out for dinner and drove one hour to meet them here. We have been to this place a few times since it first opened and fully enjoyed each time but hadn't been here in a while. Our guests were coming in from Burlington. We got to the restaurant, parked and proceeded to the front entrance.... More

This restaurant used to be good - not any more....We used to go to this restaurant regularly, but both the prices and the quality of food have changed. We had not been here for the last 18 months until today and 'what a difference'. We shared the grilled lemon grass pork chop-we used to get 5 pork chops. Today the... More

We are asian, several time we asked for some service it took long time to get it, we asked if they have the hot chilli paste they said they dont have, but i saw the other table which the customer were white people they have...
