This is quite a good Vietnamese restaurant, although parking could be a bit of an issue. It's clean and minimally decorated and doesn't smell of frying oil. I had the shrimp fresh rolls, chicken satay (both of which were starters) and a bowl of hot and sour shrimp soup (pretty spicy, but not too much for me), all of which... More

Much larger than it appears from the street, a really pleasant set up. A group of us tried 6 different dishes all really fresh and tasty. The rice wraps are roll your own and come with dry wraps and a rather unique holder which allows to dip them in the warm water and make them one at a time as... More

Pho Van Van has become one of my favourite restaurants in Ottawa. They have a great variety of options, but more importantly is the quality of food and value that I appreciate the most. Everything in the menu is great. My only negative comment is parking as it is located on a busy street. The place is super clean which... More

All around great experience, the cleanliness of the restaurant says a lot about a place, its pristine. I had the crispy beef with vermicelli, Nicely presented and cooked perfectly. My wife and daughter both had soup. My daughter is fairly picky but ate all of it. 40 dollars with tax and tip. You can't beat that. Great service as well.... More

This restaurant made me fall in love with vietnamese food a few years back. No matter what I try, i like it. Its fresh, good portion and great price. I try and go back as much as possible, its just a little far from where I live. Def my fav Vietnamese restaurant in the city.

We come here regularly. Not the best pho. But their rice dishes are nice. They put heavy seasoning. The place is nice and the people are friendly

Tucked away just off Wellington, this Holland Ave. restaurant is a little gem, like many in the neighbourhood. We had a quick lunch there are weren't disappointed.

Our out of town guests loved the meal we ate here on a recent Saturday evening. This new location is in a street level storefront in a recently constructed condo building and is clean, well decorated, bright and airy. The Chicken Curry stir fry with rice was a hit, and the vermicelli bowl I ordered was delicious. My friend said... More
