This small restaurant is pretty consistent with their food. I tried the Chicken, Beef And Shrimp On Rice Vermicelli. It was very good as far as vermicelli bowls go. They didn't cheap out on the meat. The service was atrocious. When I arrived and sat at a table, the older waiter, asked me if I wanted to do take out.... More

I showed up at the trailing edge of lunch hour. I was promptly seated and my drink order was taken. When I commented about the great selection of gluten free meals, the manager explained to me how that came about and through our discussion she made a recommendation. My soup arrived shortly after and it looked and smelled fantastic. The... More

This is a great Vietnamese restaurant tucked away on the western side of Calgary. There were lots of gluten-free options here that's important for your group. Very popular with the lunch crowd so arrive early or you might be left standing on the sidewalk while waiting for a table. Food was good but I thought it odd to pay $0.50... More

I was shopping at the nearby Home Outfitters just before lunch, and I was absolutely ravenous. I asked one of the cashiers if Lemongrass, which is in the adjacent strip mall, was okay and she said she ate there all the time. Encouraged, I headed over to get a nice bowl of pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup that has become... More

My wife is from Vietnam and encouraged me and my good friend Jason to give this place a try...it was very good! The gluten free spring rolls were spectacular! I can't say enough about them!

This restaurant has warm, friendly staff that remember returning guests and make you feel appreciated. The food is excellent with wonderful flavours and no msg. There is an entire gluten free menu which is a necessity for me as a celiac. One of the only places I can find gluten free spring rolls.

We eat here 2 or 3 times a month. Quite often we take friends and colleagues. The reason? Delicious food over and over and over again, never a bad meal.

Great place for a casual lunch or dinner. Their home made spring rolls are the best! You have to try them. The service is always friendly and the menu has a lot of gluten free options. Also perfect for a take out.

We have been eating in this restaurant many times over the years, and it had proven to be consistently good.. Until our last visit. We had the fried wontons (16B) which turned out to be as tasty as a piece of cardboard. A piece of dried dough with little filling. It was followed by 2 vermicelli noodle dishes with pork... More
