A fairly typical pho place, not a lot of effort put in the looks of the place because the focus is on the food. In this case the food was not quite there. I had a chicken broth that tasted fine but the chicken meat was not very flavourful and had a lot of gristle and crunchy bits. Not what... More

Just came from this garbage hole 15mins ago. There were 2 seated customers in the whole restaurant. We were ready to order but the waiter kept running around cleaning tables and ignoring us. The older waiter just looked at us. Finally ordered #18 and #13 medium. Based on reviews, portions are huge??? Ours were not, few pieces of meat and... More

The restaurant is quite outdated and dirty. The portion size is huge! But there was a piece of plastic in my soup. The soup was tasty with a lot of flavour but the meat was too rubbery.

My wife and I have tried so many Pho places in Toronto and we both think Pasteur is the best. The pho my wife had was very good and the spicy Hue style beef noodle soup I had was so good. Also the cold spring rolls were excellent. Really the best we have found anywhere in Toronto. Also, the service... More

I was there with my wife and 2 little kids. The waiter (or owner?) was very attentive starting when we opened the door. He also provided 2 bowls for my kids without us asking for it. The food quality I might say a little bit above average, but what we appreciated was the 24h opening hours which was very convenient... More

Pho Pasteur has been around FOREVER, and although it's a major dive, it is by far the best PHO the city has to offer outside of Little Saigon in California. I truly believe, the key to their amazing broth is that it's open 24 hours. As a few of my vietnamese friends would attest to, although it's a typical looking... More

We had an excellent service, the waiter was really kind, patient and helpful. We were served very quickly and the soup was extraordinarly good. We had a lot of choices of hot sauces on the table and all of them were good. The prices are cheap (around $8.75 for a pho) but the restaurant is really not classy. Make sure... More

My friends and I stumbled into here at midnight after a show at the Rogers Centre. We were parched from singing along and dancing all night, and we wanted food in our bellies ASAP. The waiters working there brought us tea and water immediately. The whole staff was really friendly. I had the grilled chicken vermicelli with a spring roll... More

I've tried plenty of pho places in Chinatown and Pho Pasteur is the best. Yes the interior is pretty outdated and drab, but their food and prices make up for it. They serve you tea the second you sit down and their menu has all the typical vietnamese options. A little pricier than some other places but I like that... More

Im sure mistakes happen, but I am extremely concerned with the cleanliness of this establishment due to.the fact that I found a slug-like worm in my pho. I am so thankful that I saw it before I took a nite. Health inspection is in order.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
