We have been coming here for years and the food is fast, filling and affordable. Service is good and #41 is our favourite. A tight fit but worth it.

The place is very simple: a dozen tables, modest decorations and your typical bland music. On lunchtime, there is not a lot of people there, which allowed me to have a nice service from the waitress the two times I ate there. Both times, I...More

Went there with my family as my wife was craving for vietnamese food. Read the review in Lonely Planet. Pho soup had a strange taste and noodles were overcooked and fried rolls had onions in them...telling sign: no vietnamese crowd in the place....

Bakeries, markets, restaurants, and buffets crowd the
brightly graffitied streets of Chinatown, the city's
aromatic destination for pan-Asian cuisine.
Distinguished at its entry points by towering
vermillion paifang gates, the compact neighbourhood
acts as a focal point for the Chinese community,
hectic with educational facilities, cultural centres,
acupuncturists, and foreign-language newspapers.
