Great option for Vietnamese food in NW Calgary - Edit

I've become somewhat of a regular here since I started going. It's a nice space, and the staff are very friendly. Best of all, their menu is labelled very well. It has a vegetarian section, with what is vegan or can be made vegan, and even some of the appetizers are labelled as being vegan or possible to have made vegan.

The food is decent. The vegan spring rolls are not very similar to other spring rolls I've had. The wrapper on them is different, and they have a unique taste. They are made with mushroom and bamboo, which has an interesting flavour. I've tried a few of their soups, and they are tasty. The vegan curry was pretty boring, in my opinion, but fine nonetheless. My favourite has to be the vermicelli bowl, which comes with a vegan 'fish' sauce.

It's all reasonably priced, and while the service isn't fast, it's not too bad, especially during off-peak times. It's definitely worth a try, and I will likely continue to visit!

Pros: Vegan options labelled, Lots of options, Reasonable pricing

Cons: Boring curry!

delicious!! tons of flavour and huge portions!! - Edit

Had the curry vegan soup (posted a pic of it, #82 on their menu) and it was top notch. This place can go head to head with some of the best vegan spots in NYC and LA. Tried my families dishes as well and they were great as well. Vegan fried rice was tasty and didn't need any sauce to doctor it up. Neither did the vegan stir fry with vermicelli. Highly recommend!!! :)

yum! - Edit

Service is so slow cos their menu is so large and food is quite fresh. Don't expect great service... but still check them out when you are in that area! I always get the vegan vermicelli. Also comes with vegan version of fish sauce.

Good Food, Slow Service - Edit

The server was nice and accommodating , suggested all modifications to 'veganize' our meal. We ordered t thege almond tea, it's made with milk so we got coconut milk instead, it was delicious, very almondy with the bittersweet mix of green tea and coconut that made it very interesting.
We ordered the vegetarian fried spring rolls, with rice wrapper instead of egg; these were salty and greasy, not very good.
The vegetarian stir fry was also made vegan for us; was a bit greasy but flavorful and very fresh broccoli, bok choi, carrots and cauliflower with fried tofu; it improved with sriracha sauce.
The vegetarian curry on rice was ok, lots of vegetables -same mix as the stir fry-.
The service was pretty slow, it took about 10 min for the server to take our order from the time we sat down and 10 more to get the tea. Shortly after they brought up the spring rolls and the main dishes at the same time. We arrived early for dinner so this might have been the reason why service was slow, other people after us got served a bit faster.
$35 for everything makes it a good value. Will come back and try different options

Pros: Food, Vegan Options

Cons: Slow, Need To Request Veganizing

Vegan Vietnamese Options - Edit

The staff was very knowledgeable about which items in the vegetarian section of the menu were vegan. We had spring rolls, salad rolls, curry, and tofu veggie noodle soup. They were all good. The spring rolls are normally made with an egg wrapper, but if you ask they will make vegan ones with rice wrappers instead.
