You know a place will be good when the place is full and filled with the same culture that the owners are. Food is always flavourful and portions decent. But because lunch is always busy the service is slow. Owner, you got to dig into the budget and hire more staff - this will only hurt your business when enough... More

Lunch time is very busy, try to go before lunch or just after. The limited but still quite large menu at lunch means the food is fast, fresh and good. Service is exceptional for the amount of people they serve.

A staple of the Asian community in Regina. Consistently the best Pho. Location is not in the best part of the city but the food coming out of the kitchen is great.

I go often for the lunch buffet!! AND IT'S INEXPENSIVE!!! About $12.50 or so for all you can eat Vietnamese spring rolls, fresh rolls, sweet and sour chicken balls, rice vermicelli noodles.. ALL YOUR FAVORITES!!! Great value, great taste. Run everyday by the owners, not paid staff. So you KNOW you'll be treated properly!!!!

We were driving through Regina and decided that since one of the Vietnamese Restaurants we normally go to on 14th was closed for family vacation we took a chance to go try Ngoc Van. There is a bit of road construction in front of the restaurant but the sign said open. It was 1:45 on a Friday and there were... More

Though the owner of this restaurant started the very first Vietnamese restaurant in Regina at a different location 25-30 years ago, his current restaurant has much greater variety and maintains a good standard of cuisine for the price point, which is quite reasonable at today's prices. This restaurant has its clientele and tends to be full and busy over noon... More

Busy place especially lunch time. Ordered the pho which was pretty tasteless. Soup was too clear to have been made with beef bones. Not taste any of the expected spices & herbs. Quite skimpy with the meat.

I really can't get enough of the food here. A group of us go here for lunch twice a month. Ask the server to request something spicier if that is what you want. It is basic in decor hence my atmosphere comment. My favorites are the noodle bowls. Took my teenager here and now he amd his pals are there... More

We have come here several times previously. They have an addictive sesame seed encrusted baked ball on display at the front bakery counter that we always order. This is what draws us back. The decor here is somewhat minimal. It is a simple diner, with simple food. The noodle bowls are generously portioned. The head cheese sub is very good,... More
