    Fast, cheap, delicious. Huge menu that pretty much covers every possible variation you can think of. If you think what your looking at is awesome, but would amazing if it had "x" look one dish lower.

    You HAVE to have the fried pork Spring Rolls. Dee-lish! The Pho, regardless which one you have, makes yer belly full, but yer empty but satisfied within an hour. Best I'm TO so far.

    The Hoan Kiem turtle is a controversial taxon of turtle from Southeast Asia, with one known living specimen in Vietnam, affectionately known as Cụ Rùa, meaning "great grandfather" in Vietnamese.

    Great pho. If you want vegetarian, make sure to ask for the vegetarian broth. Even the tofu pho comes with beef broth by default.

    Even better than Pho Tien Thanh. Write your order down (the Pho Dac Biet obviously) and enjoy the best bowl of pho around.

    lighter cleaner broth works in its favor, with very fresh greens. Noodles have a great consistency. Earned reputation for best pho in the city.

    T.O.'s best pho! When one of Toronto's best celebrity chefs--and an Asian chef at that--calls a place one of his favourites, that's something.

    "Large" bowls are actually a small w/ tons of soup. Go for an XL, you can finish it, TRUST. Pho dac biet not memorable. Soup wasn't beefy enough. Trust me, I'm Asian, lol. 95% of the customers aren't.

    Found sharp plastic in my soup once. Owner yelled at me and accused me of planting it. Yes, the pho is good but don't expect to be treated with respect. See you at Tien Thanh.

    We love Pho. We also love the Singapore noodles with Shrimp, and the Vietnamese Spring Rolls!

    Really good bbq pork vermicelli, spring rolls could use a little less oil, and the pho was by far the best I've had so far.

    #80 or if your feeling spicy #90. Add some hoisin and Saracha and you'll enjoy the best lunch ever.

    The raw beef pho is an absolute must try, flavourful broth nearly as good as how my mum would cook it.

    1st or 2nd best pho in Toronto, depending on who you ask. Either way, good food and low prices.

    Been coming here since I was born! Try the grilled pork with shrimp on rice, so good.

    People say that this is one of the best Pho in town - it's not. It's expensive, cheap on meat, salty and a lot of MSG! Not worth returning. Try the other place on Ossington instead - Pho Tien Thanh

    The best pho in TO. They also make a pretty good salad roll, I usually get the shrimp, with a great peanut sauce.

    Greatest service, makes you want to come back again & again. Every dish is fantastic but do leave room for an avocado or mango shake. Party in your mouth!

    Portion are small, XL large is Large w/ a lot of soup. Soup was swimming with green onions (overpowered) , not much beef flavor (kind of bland). Ordered #14 but we didn't get any tendon.

    Actually, the pho is ok. But the pad Thai is the best in the city. Try it!

    Really don't think this place has pho that's good enough to warrant the glares and grumpy attitude. Go down the street to Pho Tien Thahn instead. Superior pho broth and friendlier service.

    How many bowls of noodles have been served here? How many stomachs warmed? Around us the sounds of Vietnamese, always in the same tone, never betraying. Whole lives told in a beef broth. Six dollars.

    The herb-wrapped beef is tasty. #85 or #115 for the salad roll version.
