I haven't had Tripe before. After finding a UFO (unidentified floating object) in my Meat/extra veggie Pho soup, I discovered Tripe on happenstance. I'd give Tripe a resounding "hi I'm your tax auditor" voicemail after blowing all your savings on hookers and fake M in Vegas. The rest of the soup was pretty good. I'd give it a smiling Buddha...

We had Pho all three of us. I had Pho with spicy broth. Shrimp and mussels. The rest of the bowl was noodles and broth. Pay $13.00 for a medium bowl of 3 small shrimps and 3 large mussels still attached to the shells. Service is quick. Fills up fast at lunch time. Not sure if we'll be back. Nothing... More

The service was quick and friendly. We were very anxious to try a new Vietnamese restaurant after thoroughly enjoying the Tiny Table Vietnamese restaurant in Cornwall, but, we did not enjoy the food. The medium size Pho was surprisingly large and the rice wraps were also large. The broth was very high in MSG so I'm not sure what it... More

This was a little ago where I dropped by with my friends. I've been here a few times prior where I had no issue. Until this one incident where the waiter had the nerve to ask us if we wanted our bills when we have yet to be even served water. We were sitting for a good 20+ minutes without... More

We visit here at least once a month, the food is excellent, fast service and the prices are very reasonable. If we went anywhere else in Ottawa for a Pho we would feel like we are cheating on our favourite restaurant.

After a long day of travel we stopped in looking for comfort food and found all that and more. At 930 PM the restaurant was still packed with people. The Pho bowls looked amazing and the smell was enticing. The staff was friendly and the service was quick. The portions are huge. A small bowl is not small by any... More

This is one of my favourite vietnamese restaurants. It is relatively cheap and service is always fast. The soup is amazing. I recommend this place to all my friends.
