“A Delightful Surprise”

Vietnam Cuisine Restaurant
Ranked #20 of 79 Restaurants in Powell River
Cuisines: Vietnamese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We wanted to take our hosts out for dinner, with a limited time frame and varied dietary needs. This is not a fancy restaurant, or even necessarily easy to find but ....... Our server was excellent in helping us choose family style food that we could all share. The restaurant serves predominantly Vietnamese and Thai food. We went with Thai and even our newcomer to Thai food, enjoyed his meal. It's certainly worth returning to the next time we are in Powell River and need a quick, delicious dinner.

The portions were very large and the Pad Thai was perfectly spiced. Our waitress was friendly, but overworked as she seemed to be the only person in a busy restaurant. It took a while to get our order taken, and when it arrived, one of the dishes was chicken instead of beef like we had ordered. She also forgot to ask us if we wanted steamed rice with our meal, so we had to wait while that came. The peanut curry dish that was chicken instead of beef was very flavourful, with a light spiciness that's hard to describe, but it was very runny and the sauce didn't stick to the vegetables very well.
Beyond that, we ordered two dishes and a small bowl of steamed rice (there were two of us) and ended up taking half of it with us to eat as leftovers the next night.
The restaurant is hard to find as it's located in a strip mall that doesn't face the street it's on. Our GPS took us to the address, but we had to drive around a bit before we actually saw the restaurant.

Have been a regular here since it opened. Food is always excellent and the servers always know what we want before we order as mostly we just say our usual please. We miss this place a lot since we moved earlier this year and have yet to find a replacement. Wow PR is lucky to have this restaurant and the family that owns it

I was delayed due to fog and couldn't get out so I tried this little spot in Powell River. I say "what is going on" because this is the best pho I've ever had and the townsite brewery beer is just wonderful.
Two of my favourite things were found in Powell River; the soup and the beer.
Who would have guessed.
As I write this the waitress tells me her mom in the kitchen appreciates the compliments. What a great day!
