Stopped off for a snack...the soup and noodles/beef were most fulfilling. Asian fast food made fresh with herbs and spices to tickle your fancy. A+

Fantastic pho and rice rolls. Great for a quick but delicious and healthy bite. They have an excellent menu with a nice variety for those who don't want soup too. Great for families.

I've only tried the soup and the spring rolls. The soup is very large and very delicious and it is one of the few calming restaurants' where you can take your time and heal your body. The fish sauce for dipping spring rolls are truly a must try with a unique push and pull texture, a truly authentic taste it... More

They do not give you enough chicken and it tasted as frozen chicken. Cannot be compared with the ones in Chinatown

Having tried pho in south east asia, I have to say the pho here are not quite the same - nevertheless they are still pretty decent. Is it truly authentic? not quite - but close! Came here at dinner on the weekend and it was pretty packed. They serve stir-fry, rice dish as well. A lot of variety. Pho (medium)... More

The restaurant is totally over rated. In my opinion it is a fast food, like a regular Chinese and nothing like a good Vietnamese in NYC. The food is made of cheap ingredients with questionable quality. The seafood noodle soup looked suspicious in terms of quality of the seafood they used, I was afraid to eat it. The meats over...

Got the shrimp pad thai. Lots of food, fresh and hot. Will definitely go there for lunch. One of the better places in the strip mall.

I normally don't eat pho at a restaurant with a full menu, only at pho-only places. But Oxhead manages to do a stellar pho plus almost everything else -- the vermicelli dishes are much larger than most places and oh-so savoury and delicious. Worth the drive the Kanata! I highly recommend this place -- both locations.
