We had come in and ordered take out last week. The owner, (older lady), had taken our order and once it was ready for pick up she handed our order to us and I even confirmed the names of the dishes and she had mentioned she had double checked it. Once we came home, the dishes were totally different then... More

Over the past 10 years I have been at the “Gold Train Express” several times. In fact, it was my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in the Greater Vancouver Area. But the past few years I went the not so often since I wasn’t so satisfied. Yesterday I tried it again when I visited that place with a friend. First what we... More

The food was passable, but this 24hr pho restaurant is very small. Given all of the other pho restaurants in the area, I won't be back any time soon.

Just returned to Vancouver from Hong Kong and after unpacking it's already 3:00am! So we ventured out for a bowl of hot Pho...I have to say this is not the best Pho in town but it has its own standard...the crowd is mixed and the service is fast considering that only 3 person operates the whole place! If you want... More

I just had dinner there tonight with my family and cousin who was visiting from Toronto and it was just a terrible experience! My wife ordered a curry dish where she found a long black hair with the noodles! Yuck! She got it returned and they brought out another dish she ordered and it was just ok. As we were... More

In the past, I was impressed with the food and the service. Yesterday though, the server was having trouble taking care of three groups who arrived around the same time- 6 people in all around 5:30 pm. The food left a lot to be desired this time. Mom's beef with French bread is a great size for a senior so... More

I have come to this location many times in the past and it was great. I am wondering if these are newish owners as the quality of the food has really gone down. I had pork and it was fine but my partner had some very scary grilled chicken and paid for it dearly later. Will not return.

Vietnamese fare: average food quality. Restaurant is very small and very tight. Not very comfortable atmosphere. Prices are reasonable.
