Super chill spot with a creative and delicious cocktail menu. Pork belly bao buns and chicken wings were standouts. Fantastic... service and well-executed dishes. Read more

Pretty decent but don't expect much flavour. We showed up and were sat at the bar to have drinks while we waited for a table. We... kind of ended up being "forgotten about" but the bar staff was kind to remind one of the wait staff that we needed a table andwere promptly seated. Understandable with the current industry wide short staffing issues. I had the Chicken Pho and wasn't tooimpressed as it basically just tasted like beef broth with noodles. From my understanding the owners are going for "viet-modern"but it does feel like a bit of a slap in the face to pay so much for basically just beef broth. I would like to return againbut generally you are gonna get much better value at one of the Indian restaurants in terms of flavour for cost. Overall, goodstaff, good atmosphere, good beers but I wish there was at least one option of pho for people who want genuine pho flavour. Read more

The Pho was delicious, probably the best broth I?ve had! The outdoor seating was cozy and our server was timely and very... pleasant. The food came up quickly and the portions were generous. The meatballs in the Pho Shizzle are homemade and they arehuge! Highly recommend! Will definitely come back next time I?m in Nelson! Read more

This review is purely regarding the food as the restaurant itself is nice and the service was good. The dishes are so expensive... , based on the price you would think it would be good or half decent at least. The food was awful , the worst pho I've everhad. It tasted so bland - just like boiling water and starch from the noodle. I put so much Sriracha and hoisin sauce to makeit better but that didn't help. The yum son bowl was no better, it didn't taste good at all , was hard to eat. I usually don'tleave negative reviews of restaurants, but I feel the need to warn others so they save their money.

I love the regular menu but tonight's feature completely blew me away. The roasted chicken with noodle & vegetable stir fry... might be the best thing I?ve eaten here to date. It was incredible! Please consider adding this to the menu! ???????????????? Read more

Nice space with friendly staff but food was not impressive. If you are familiar with Vietnamese cuisine and been to many... Vietnamese restaurants, you will be disappointed. Foods are presented in similar way but flavour is not there. Curry was not toobad but peaceful noodle bowl was awful. Also everything seems over priced in my opinion especially spring roll and the saladroll. They were $14 and $15 for 2 rolls each. Read more
