Food is always good at this neighbourhood restaurant. Good but not inspired! No specials to peak your interest. People go and buy their favourite Vietnamese bun or pho. No suggestions or specials are mentioned to customers. Nothing bad about the food, just a little boring!

I love this place. The food is so consistent and always top notch for a price that can't be beat. I particularly love the satay soups, but anything I have had off the menu has been top notch.

Love 56 build your own salad rolls with the hard to find la lop rolls, delivers shrimp on sugar cane, and lots of very fresh veggies. Reasonable and quick.

Food here is quite good. The service is what you'd expect from a local Vietnamese place. Food comes quick, it's fresh and good. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a decent meal at a decent price.

Go there often, great food and well worth the $$. Their Salt & Pepper Squid blows away any Chinese Restaurant in Calgary, and I've tried most.

We initially searched out this little restaurant because we were nearby and had a coupon. It became a favorite and we have returned over and over. I like the chicken vermicelli but was also impressed with the shrimp and vegetables in a nest.

I eat here maybe 4 times per month. Usually business meetings. Excellent prices, and food. The satay soup is very very good. Fresh rolls, superb. Try the fresh rolls with grille chicken instead of shrimp. I have never seen that before and so good.

So far I would say that the Bow River Vietnamese Restaurant is the best Vietnamese restaurant we have visited in Calgary. (You can check my other Vietnamese restaurant reviews to see the ones that were good--I don't review the ones I didn't like). The prices...More
