Went there with my family as my wife was craving for vietnamese food. Read the review in Lonely Planet. Pho soup had a strange taste and noodles were overcooked and fried rolls had onions in them...telling sign: no vietnamese crowd in the place....

Food is good! Prices are nice too! Service is the same as all the ChinaTown in Mtrl. If you're on a rush, it might not be the best place. But if you're carving for some healthy asian food, you're on the right spot!

Bakeries, markets, restaurants, and buffets crowd the
brightly graffitied streets of Chinatown, the city's
aromatic destination for pan-Asian cuisine.
Distinguished at its entry points by towering

acts as a focal point for the Chinese community,
hectic with educational facilities, cultural centres,
acupuncturists, and foreign-language newspapers.
