Great soup

One of the things I love about An Chay is their food is healthier than some of the other local restaurants. Crisp fresh veggies and the option of brown rice instead of vermicelli noodles. Veganitems are clearly marked on the menu. Their soup is great and their summer rolls are the best in town.

Pros: Fresh veggies, Brown rice is an option

Cons: Can be a bit difficult for parking

So good!

The food was wonderful, the staff was friendly and pleasant, and the restaurant itself was comfortable and attractive. All three dishes we had were tasty and fresh, and reasonably sized and priced. It is a vegetarian restaurant, and we are vegan, but there was a lot of choice and many of the listed vegetarian dishes have vegan options. We’ll definitely return.

Stumbled on this gem to celebrate our anniversary

We stumbled on this lovely restaurant the day after our 10th anniversary. We were exploring downtown and got hungry, so we looked up vegetarian spots near us and I was surprised to see a vegan/vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant pop up.

We got sat right by the window with a nice view of the street and were served promptly. I got the pho satay which was AMAZING, and my partner got the vermicelli bowl which he couldn't stop raving about. He normally is not a fan of Vietnamese food.

We also got the salad rolls, which were delicious, but be mindful if you can't handle spice because the sauce is pretty spicy. The spring rolls were super fresh and delicious.

The food was very well spiced but still tasted healthy and fresh.

I tried their burdock tea to help with digestion since we'd been eating a lot that weekend. I'm excited to try their coffee next time.

Hoping to be back soon with more people.

Pros: Delicious, healthy food, that tastes authentic, Enjoyable atmosphere, Nice view

Cons: Adjacent streets not great to walk on at night

Lots of vegan options, clearly labelled

Super clear which menu options are vegan or have a vegan option and the waitor was very kind explaining what the substitutions were. Food was great as well.

Its OK

I came here a couple months after they first opened. I had a vegan dish and my two friends had a vegetarian dish, and none of us thought the food was overly good, it was just OK. I felt like they were missing some flavor.

My go-to Vietnamese, from being raised Vietnamese

Becoming vegan, I felt I didn’t have options to eat the food I loved growing up (my mom is Vietnamese). An Chay started around the time I became vegan and I don’t remember exactly how I found them but I was looking for vegan Vietnamese, found them, tried it out, and never looked back. I’ve tried almost everything on their menu and their pho tastes exactly like my mom’s pho minus the meat, their satay is DELICIOUS, and my regular order: the Bon Hue, is my favourite. I have the Bon Hue almost every time I come here. It tastes exactly like my mom’s with just enough spice but a depth of flavour between slightly sour and spicy that I compare any other Bon Hue that I come across to this one from An Chay. I come here often, like once a month or more. I wish I could come here weekly, that’s how much I love it. I hope more people support this place, I would be heartbroken if it ever went out of business.

Fabulous spot for lunch!

Stopped by for a warm lunch and was delighted by the friendly service and delicious Vermicelli Special. I was rewarded with a seat near the large windows facing Jasper Avenue so I was able to enjoy the view while I enjoyed my meal. Service was prompt and the meal was fresh and tasty.

Pros: All vegan, Friendly service, Fair prices

Cons: May have to pay for parking as on Jasper Avenue

Tasty, healthy Vietnamese food in downtown YEG

Enjoyed the tasty Vietnamese soups at An Chay. We tried the satay and the curry soups, along with the salad rolls. I'm not usually a salad roll fan, but these ones were delightful! All of the dishes tasted very fresh and healthy, this is definitely not junk food. Just the right amount of spice. The restaurant has a convenient downtown location with some metered street parking in the vicinity.

Pros: very fresh, healthy

Mostly Soups

Excellent curry dish, fake ham in vermicelli bowl is great. Slow service due to many pick up orders, 7-10 tables of people and only 1 waitress.

Pros: location, tasty

Cons: Not a lot of selection, Mostly Soups

really great traditional Vietnamese food!

Me and my fiancé went here to night and it was fantastic. We had the green papaya salad to start which was so good that we got a second to take home! We also got a curry tofu which was delicious and the satay noodle which was a nice spicy soup, similar to pho. Check this place out if you want healthy and delicious food.

Pros: good food, great price
