Where to get the best Pho in Vancouver? What are the best Vietnamese Restaurants Vancouver? When it’s raining, it is always a good time for Pho Noodles. There are so many best Vietnamese restaurants in Vancouver. Everywhere you go seems to be the next best pho in Vancouver. The following restaurants list below are my favorites. They are tasty and hits the spot in their own particular way. Restaurants listed below are listed at random.
Phnom Penh Restaurant Vancouver 金邊小館 | 244 E Georgia St., Vancouver, BC | 604 682-5777
Always a long line up; but always hits the spot. Do as your neighbours do and order the thinly sliced marinated butter beef loaded with garlic bits and cilantro. Also order the deep fried chicken wings with lemon dipping sauce.
Mr. Red Cafe Vietnamese Restaurant | 2234 E Hastings St Vancouver, BC V5L 1V4 | (604) 710-9515
Their broth is MSG free and flavors are built by heat and bones. They make three different stocks daily from scratch everyday. Instead of the atypical hoisin sauce, they steep their own rice vinegar with tons of chili and garlic. Their deep fried crab meat spring rolls is one of the best!
Song Huong Vietnamese Restaurant | 1613 Nanaimo St Vancouver, BC V5L 4T9 | (604) 568-1196
Their special Beef 7 ways and Oxtail Hotpot is a feast! Aside from your spicy beef pho noodles, Song Hyong also offers special dishes like steamed tapioca dumplings and rice rolls.
Le Do Vietnamese Restaurant | 2292 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC V5L 1V4 | (604) 253-3508
Solid Pho option on East Hastings-Sunrise neighborhood. Le Do is a couple of shops down from Red Wagon and puts up a fierce competition. Their Egg Foo Yung is wonderful. Le Do has hearty portions at reasonable prices without compromising flavors
New Asia Deli Restaurant 亞洲美食 | 3779 Sexsmith Rd, Richmond, BC V6X 3Z9, (604) 279-4288
Offers a variety of banh mì and pho options in Continental Plaza, Richmond. Their shredded pork baguette sandwich is really tasty. So is their dry noodles. This is a great stop if you are ever dying for a decent pho in Richmond.
Pho Tan Vietnamese 新記越南餐廳 | 4598 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5V, (604) 873-3345
Pho Bo Satay 沙嗲牛肉粉 is Pho Tan ‘s specialty. On of the first in Vancouver. The broth has a good kick of heat and flavour. It reminds me of a Vietnamese version of Laksa. Served with thin fatty beef slices and al dente noodles.
Pho Tam Surrey 歡心正宗越南牛肉粉 | 4598 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5V, | (604) 873-3345
Pho Tam Surrey 歡心正宗越南牛肉粉 is not only the best pho in Surrey, but perhaps all of Metro Vancouver. Bun bo Hue The noodles are so bouncy yet soaks in all the soup! Beef flank, beef balls, congealed pigs blood, and a pork knuckle all inside this bowl of mildly spicy, sour and salty lemongrass piping hot bowl of pho.
Bao Chau Vietnamese Vancouver 寶珠 | 2717 E Hastings St, Vancouver, BC V5K 1Z8, (604) 251-6956
House Special Beef Noodle: Loaded with your usual thinly sliced fatty beef and garnished with white and green onions and cilantro. A light flavorful broth. Bo Bun Hue aka Spicy Beef Pho Noodles is mildly spicy with predominant lemongrass flavors. Very spicy chili oil is added later into the beef broth.
Where do you go for your pho fix? Let us know! We’d love to try!
Mr. Red Cafe is a recently opened Vietnamese restaurant on Hastings (Sunrise neighborhood). Unlike many pho restaurants in Vancouver, Mr Red Cafe offers traditional Northern Vietnamese cuisine. Owner Rose tells us that they value authentic traditional flavors. Their broth is MSG free and flavors are built […]
We were greeted one evening by a bitter cold winter evening in Vancouver. The nearby restaurants were packed and have no tables available. It were grateful for a hot bowl of pho at Joyeaux Cafe Vancouver on Howe Street. The service here is prompt and pretty […]
Song Huong Vietnamese Restaurant is one of the best Viet restaurants in Vancouver? Their special Beef 7 ways and Oxtail Hotpot is a meat feast? How could you not have heard of this restaurant? I must have been living in a well because I really haven’t heard of it until now.
We arrived at Song Huong Vietnamese Restaurant, just north of East 1st Ave / Nanaimo. The interior is date with a beach-tikki-tropical vibe punctuated with lime green, fake plastic leave and branches hanging from the ceiling with dim lighting. The menus mirrored the same design and I was afraid I would even to turn green.
But despite the poor “décor” this restaurant offers a lot. Special dishes like tapioca dumplings and of course the aforementioned Beef 7 ways and Oxtail Hotpot. Beware, it’s like having a meat feast. It is actually more than enough for 2 people.
Bun Ga Cha Gio – Lemongrass chicken and spring rolls vermicelli noodles: It is not de-boned chicken breast / thighs. These are actual chicken pieces with some occasional broken bones. It is nicely seasoned and grilled. The spring rolls has a nice filled and lightly fried.
Bun Bo Hue – Pig knuckles, Vietnamese ham, beef shanks, congealed pig blood and served with shredded purple cabbage. The soup base was on the lighter side and definitely not spicy enough. We much prefer the hearty bowl at Pho Tan instead.
Banh Bot Loc Tom Thit Goi La Chuoi – Tapioca dumplings with minced meat and shrimp steamed with banana leaf: A chewy texture with seasoned minced meat inside. A side of fish sauce punctuated with chilies and garlic was exciting. However, often found bites of bones? Or broken ceramic? inside. I really hope I was the only unlucky one. Could you imagine swallowing it or biting onto it? Hello Dental Plan!!
Anyways, I’m sure I’ll be back for the Beef 7 ways and Oxtail Hotpot… I’ll just be careful not to bite off more than I can chew!

Sometimes I wonder how true something self proclaimed is. The best noodle soup in town? Apparently this is true and there is a large fan base and general consensus that Pho Tam Surrey 歡心正宗越南牛肉粉 is not only the best pho in Surrey, but perhaps all of Metro Vancouver. […]
I’ve been on the road for awhile now, and being away from Vancouver (Lower Mainland) makes me crave and miss Asian food A LOT. When searching for the “best pho” in Kamloops or any Pho for that matter, my GPS brought me to Donut King & […]
Le Do Vietnamese Restaurant… Try the pho once and you will be hooked. Try the rice a second time and will so happy you may want to cry. Le Do is a couple of shops down from Red Wagon and puts up a fierce competition with Bao Chau. Le Do Vietnamese Restaurant is a great Vietnamese restaurant providing you great meals, hearty portions at reasonable prices while uncompromising flavour.
Dry Vietnamese Vermicelli with spring rolls and pasted pork brochette (sausage). Crunchy and flaky spring rolls with a nice minced pork filling. The sausage is grilled on the skewer and sprinkled with crushed peanuts. Usual garnishes of pickled carrots and radish to accompany. Mix in the chili oil and pour in the fish sauce completes this dish.
The rice comes with a side water diluted soup of pork hock. It feels like Knoor’s chicken essence powder mixed with hot water.
Now the star of the show – broken rice. Le Do Vietnamese Restaurant has the best broken rice in Vancouver. This lemongrass grilled chicken is delicious! The rice is dry, not mushy and fragrant. Shredded fried onions add a layer of depth and flavours. Add an egg so the yolk runs onto your rice. Smother it. Mix it. Indulge in the creamy goodness.
Their minced pork and Egg Foo Yung is wonderful and it doesn’t have to be the unattractive Chinese-American/Canadian restaurant version that’s covered in gloppy brown sauce. It can be refined and neatly presented in a rectangle cake.
And last but not least. Always check out their drink menu. Their drinks can be like a liquid dessert. Heavy coconut milk, red beans, jelly and egg white! Heavenly – Even in an unattractive little restaurant!

It was a cloudy Sunday afternoon after service at Tenth and we were all craving a little pho. Dave suggested there is this awesome chicken Pho place called My Chau on Kingsway, but alas they are closed on Sundays. Our friend suggested we try Pho Tan Vietnamese, […]

No More Banh Mi (Viet Subs) | Bao Chau Vietnamese 寶珠 & Le Petit Saigon 小小西貢 , Vancouver (East Hastings / Sunshine Community)
Sad to report that Bao Chau Vietnamese 寶珠 on 2717 East Hastings Street and Le Petit Saigon 小小西貢 just a few steps away on 2783 East Hastings Street both no longer serves Banh Mi, Vietnamese Subs, Sandwiches or however you want to call it. So why the sudden disposition of the subs? Do they not generate enough revenue? It simply can’t be because nobody likes it! They were delicious! Please bring them back! Must we go far away to Kingsway Deli or Ba Le French Sandwiches in Mount Pleasant area, or Viet Sub in Downtown just to get a bite of the tasty banh mi’s? Le Sigh!
When one wants to dine out in Coquitlam, especially Asian cuisines, there aren’t a lot of choices. To add to the frustration, most do not open late (meaning past 10pm)… So where does one go for grub when they are too tired to venture out […]
