Lunch platter of choice: grilled beef, meat balls, spring rolls, and shrimp on rice or vermicelli. Delicious filling meal! The lunch hour was really busy but if one arrives before noon, or after 1pm, there are several tables to choose from.

A great little gem of a restaurant hidden away from most people's views. This is a small restaurant owned and operated by a very nice couple. The wife does the cooking while the husband mans front of the house. He is always smiling and pleasant and they are both very efficient at their jobs! I've only ordered twice from here,... More

I have been here before and enjoyed their food. However today my friend had a tack knock her tooth as she was eating the noodles from her pho. The owner appologized profusely but did not offer to give her money back, only offered to pay for her next visit. Umm I think after finding a tack in your food, we... More

I recently tried the Spicy beef soup and I must say it was delicious. Big portion size, amazing taste, and great service. I believe the owners were working when I ordered the soup. They were super friendly. Make sure you bring cash as this place does not accept debit/credit. Its well worth pulling some cash for this food.

Cash Only! You may or may not get a table, but the food is well prepared and tasty. The menu tries to have something for everyone without being cumbersome. Had the Vietnamese special - the flavours and food were very good. Service was prompt & pleasant.

I'm glad I found this place online as I would never have noticed this restaurant otherwise. I met some friends to try the Vietnamese food. There's a variety of other food including sandwiches but during my visit, I saw only one person have a sandwich and everyone was having soup or vermicelli plate. Two of us ordered the vermicelli plate... More

I regularly go to Vietnamese restaurants for Pho. Back Street Bistro didn't have Pho, they had Vermicelli and spicy soups. Basically that was it. I tried their Beef Noodle Soup assuming it would be similar to Pho. It wasn't! They don't have Hoison sauce, there was very little meat, the broth was chicken broth with beef meat. I also had...

Great, fast little lunch spot downtown. Their Satay soup is FANTASTIC. It's a tiny spot, so get there early because the lunch rush is kinda heavy. Get your food to go and head to the legislature grounds. Warning this is a cash only place.
