I'm a regular customer at this quaint spot on Bank st. Great for lunch. Service is quick with friendly atmosphere. Best pho I've had in Ottawa. Mango salad good too . Plentiful servings

For a Bank Street pho joint this is probably your best bet. Service is quick, the broth is not greasy, and the price is about average for the area. I stick with the number 1 ( rare beef) and have rarely been disappointed.

The food is very tasty and the service is quick so this is a good place for lunch. A great value with a typical diner type atmosphere.

This is what you'd expect. Delicious food simply served in simple but clean, quiet surroundings. Not garish. Better than a greasy spoon. Not exciting. The do really nice Pho soup.

I enjoyed my first meal in Ottawa here. Wide variety of South Asian food. Had Thai curry, which was good, though a tad to lemon grass-y.

Was walking around bank street with the wife and friend and were looking to eat Pho and saw this place. I am really not disappointed the service was good and was really polite.

I had a spicy chicken broth soup with Vietnamese meatballs and rice noodles. The broth was excellent. The meatballs are authentically "bouncy" with bits of gristle added on purpose for texture. I'll be back to try the Pho (beef broth) soups, since the chicken broth was so good. I didn't mind the service; I find that many owner-operated Vietnamese restaurants... More

We love this place as a relatively quick lunch spot. Food comes out pretty quickly if not a big group. Waitress is usually very quiet (not rude) and not overly attentive. But the food tastes good. Love the pad thai, singapore noodles and the chow mein.

We've been to Viet-Thai restaurant 2 times. The food was ok, but not great. The price was a bit expensive for Vietnamese food in my opinion, with taxes you would spend 12-13 $ per person. But in general Vietnamese restaurants in Ottawa was not as cheap as in Montreal. The location is on Bank - McLaren, centrally located.

I love pho. My partner loves chicken vermicelli. And shrimp rice paper rolls. Neither one of us would come here again, primarily because of the service. The waitress was unwelcoming, but not rude. She was completely inattentive - we walked from our table to the hostess stand to place our order, to get serviettes and to pay for our order.... More
