We were hoping to eat in a very popular restaurant near by but it was over crowded and there were loads of people waiting to be served so we tried this place. We did not regret it great chicken and beef/meat ball Pho. Quick efficient service. We shared a substantial starter - prawns (fresh summer rolls) they were good. Excellent... More

Beef noodle soup was scrmptious, they used high quality meat (tasty and tender), soup was the best. Service was very good. Will return to try another dish before I go back to the US.

This is a simple but charming little restaurant not from from Courtenay....on Majorbanks. The chicken pho was one of the best I've ever had, with beautiful slices of white chicken meat. My husband ordered a pork and noodle stirfry, which was served with carrot, mint, lettuce, tiny egg rolls and other fresh and colorful ingredients. The small staff is humble... More

We live in Vietnam and seriously this is one of the best pho I've ever had! It's clearly made from amazing quality beef. They did not cheap out. Owners humble and lovely. Manager, server is also same guy who makes the pho.

With pho being my favourite food, I've sampled pho in many places around the world including Vietnam. The pho from Saigon Taste is definitely in my top 3. The beef broth is obviously made from scratch and has such a depth of flavour and well seasoned. There is a generous amount of Vietnamese mint and coriander. The rice noodles are... More

You can't beat this place for food around the $10-15 mark. Don't let the terrible pictures in the menu put you off - the food is actually really tasty!
