“Our Favourite Spot in Town”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

Whenever we're in Nanaimo, Pho a Dong is a main stop. Great exercise to the top of the hill from the marina. Very good Vietnamese flavours and a nice selection of items on the menu. Love their spring-rolls and they are always served fresh from the fryer, not warmed up. Salad rolls are very good as well. Soups are awesome and the thought of their curry dishes have me salivating. The place is small, friendly and sweet, and extremely clean.

“Great choice for Vietnamese!”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

Always great, affordable Vietnamese food with friendly and fast service!
My favourites are always spring rolls and salad rolls! Yummy!
The location is great as it is right near the Old City Quarter!
Not sure what there hours are though as it seems I have often gone and it is closed.

“Great food + great value”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

This restaurant is one of the only place in Nanaimo that I would never hesitate to go. The food is always great and the pho broth never ceases to amaze me. The price is very good (~12 dollars for a bowl of pho) which makes it very nice for a student such as me. Only bad thing I should mention is that the service quality has gone down a bit over time.

“a little hole in the wall!”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

Crazy good food and great prices! The dinning area is really small but the incredible food outshines the small space. We quite often do take out.

“Pho A Dong Is A Long Time Favourite”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

I have frequented this little homey restaurant for several years. The food is fresh & clean tasting.
My favourite dish is their chicken or seafood hot pot. When, we were in Asia this dish was called clay pot.

For appetizers, I enjoy their crispy spring rolls or their fresh salad rolls. Their pho is a real treat, as well. The servings are ample & the prices are the best in town. The staff is is very friendly & efficient. if, you arrive at noon, you will probably have to wait as this popular place fills up fast.
