I would recommend this place for folks who wish to have Vietnamese food in a more formal dining setting. The presentation of the excellent fare is somewhat modern, but the flavors remain largely traditional. The hot pot dishes and the appetizers are all quite good.

Broken Rice is my favourite place for dinner. The ambience is upscale yet simple and the staff are friendly and accomodating. Meals and drinks are reasonably priced. Best of all I like to go with a group so we can eat family style and enjoy a variety of dishes but even for two it makes for a great meal. With... More

There's nothing like a delicious bowl of Vietnamese noodle soup is there? This was my first visit to Broken Rice. Being as how we are always on the lookout for new noodle soup places, I was excited to try this one. So, I ordered the Hot and Sour Seafood Pho and to start the Coconut Shrimp Cakes for the three...

This is THE Vietnamese restaurant in the Heights. Fresh crispy flavorful combos, great service, and open air (when appropiate)

I recently had dinner at Broken Rice with family members. The service was excellent - it was fast, friendly and knowledgeable and our teapots were re-filled frequently. The prawn mango salad was also excellent and I highly recommend it. A couple of us enjoyed the tamarind duck and others also enjoyed the crepes although they were a bit of a... More

Awesome, clean and great food. Must try the ribs. It's the full length rib done to perfection. Chicken wings are superb with the butter garlic sauce. Pho' is good too, soup makes the Pho tasty based on how many lbs of beef bones you brew. Please try once. You will not be disappointed.

We loved this place having been there 2-3 times in 2015. But went there couple weeks ago, and was really disappointed with the service. They never asked how our food was. We had to call their attention to refill our tea. Tried to get our bill, but both servers were just busy cleaning up, not looking out for the customers.... More

I am definitely impressed that this type of Vietnamese restaurant exists. Sure, it's a little pricier than the usual pho restaurant, but the food is a lot better and the prices are reasonable. I had the Satay noodles and it was nice to try something different. It's a great local spot and I hope to go back soon.

Came for lunch on a Saturday. Place was almost empty but the food was great. Had the chinese sausage salad rolls - very tasty and nice change from the ordinary. Tamarind chicken wings were crispy. sticky, sour and sweet - very nice. Green papaya salad with jerky was nicely flavored and the broth for the beef pho was very good.... More

There is so much that's great about this restaurant! From the service to the food! This is the most on-point Vietnamese restaurant around. Not you're typical Vancouver Vietnamese restaurant.. This restaurant gives a nod to it's French colonialism heritage with white table cloth dining & dressed up servers. I can rarely say this.. Everything is amazing on the menu! From... More
