Vietnamese and Chinese Cuisine Restaurants & Take-outs

Phu Yen - Vietnamese / Chinese

This little gem of a place is located at the intersection of March & Terry Fox Drive



This is a classic case of "Looks can be deceiving"! What looked like a small and beaten up place from the outside is compensated by some amazing food being served. They have over 200 dishes on the menu and their speed of service is very good. Relative to most other Chinese cuisine restaurants, this place has very good options for spice driven food. Our personal favourites are "Singapore Fried Vermicelli" and "House Curry Chicken" - both were having great taste and is much recommended by us.

And the absolute best was the "Deep Fried Vegetable Spring Rolls"!

Kanata Noodle House - Authentic Vietnamese

This is located on Terry Fox & Hazeldean



This has the classic Vietnamese dish Pho. Pho is a noodle soup consisting of broth, rice noodles called bánh phở, a few herbs, and meat, primarily made with either beef or chicken  (Source: If you do want to experiment Vietnamese cuisine, this dish is the simplest one to get started on according to us. And Kanata Noodle house is a great place to have this dish.
