My first meal every time I visit Vancouver is Pho Lan (reasonably close to airport). The quality of the food here never changes. The pho is so delicious and comforting. I also love their spring rolls and Vietnamese ice coffee.

Almost spill the soup on me. Also twice coming here, there are fruit flies constant hover around the food. Not sure about hygiene here is any good. But... More

My wife's aunt comes here every week. A lot of City Hall workers come here often. The place is packed with people at lunch. This is the kind of place local people come to eat. And I would probably go here every week if I lived nearby. It is that good. It is the best pho I've had outside Vietnam.... More

Hey so if you are into exotic stuff (and clean). You can come to this place. As one reviewer says this is an institution in Richmond and a restaurant operating for over 2 decades in Richmond... well that means a lot, its like a European restaurant operating since the middle ages. Anyway, since I'm not scared about humble restaurants, where... More

Great location for a first date! The service is kind of bad though and you have to be prepared to be super quick or the staff get a bit rude.

This restaurant has been around since 1994. It is almost considered a Richmond Institution. I started coming here as a student attending Richmond High School. The times have changed but overall the food has been consistent. I enjoy eating the Large bowls of Rare Beef with Beef Meatballs and I always ask for spicy broth. The spring rolls are the... More

We had a delicious, inexpensive lunch here on December 18. They offered a booster seat and kiddy bowls/cutlery to our children, and brought the toddler's food first. Previous reviewer mentioned they take credit cards but as of December 18, it was cash only. This is a real hole in the wall. Feels a bit sketchy but the food was excellent.
