Lunch here was a great surprise with a few servers doing their best to tend to a near packed house but giving timely attention despite it. Savoury crepe with ground pork, shrimp and jicama was excellent - perfectly crisp and nicely seasoned, filled predominantly with bean sprouts. Vermicelli with chicken and fried rolls had nice cuts of meat and succulent steaming noodles. My durian shake was also a good representation of the fruit which is to say creamy, stinky and strangely refreshing. Portions were huge, table setting basic and atmosphere passable. Would return for authentic flavour and generous servings.

This is the Westshore outlet of the popular Green Leaf Bistro in downtown Victoria. The location at 832 Goldstream Avenue (across the road and a bit down from Tims) is really easy to get to and comes with a very large parking lot. I have a good friend who won't go to a restaurant if it looks "sketchy" from the outside. This place looks very clean and professional, in a stand alone single story building. At first glance it almost looks like someones house.

My friend had the Fresh Shrimp Salad Rolls. At $5.95 the serving was excellent and the peanut sauce that accompanied it was delicious. I had the #68 Shrimp Cooked on a Cast Iron Plate. This is actually meant to be shared but, what can I say, I didn't read the menu very carefully. I saw shrimp and cast iron plate and I was sold. The serving was a huge mound of onions, red and green peppers with 12 whole, huge prawns. Excellent!

Two ate for less than $25.00 including a 20% tip (the waitress was great, charming, well spoken, friendly and attentive).
Definitely a repeat coming up for me!

Its nice to see Langford has a new unique restaurant. I have never been to the one downtown but was extremely impressed with the flavorful food and great value. I have been here twice now and the food is consistent and the staff friendly and the portions large. The food is delicious and I always take home half of my meal. This is a great value for taking out the whole family for dinner, especially if you are feeding teenagers. Its also nice that it is in the downtown Langford core so one can walk to it.

We don't venture downtown too often so were pleased to find this Vietnamese restaurant opened in the Westshore - it was recommended by a client. The food is consistently good, fresh, and prices are reasonable, service attentive and friendly. We have been there six times (dinner and lunch) since going the first time about 3 weeks ago, trying a variety of dishes - every one has been good! This is now our favourite local choice for Asian cuisine. For quality and value, they far exceed some other Asian restaurants in the area. Even though it is on the main street, it is set back (former restaurant there for years) and has nice garden and trees around the large deck, so the views are pleasant.
