While there aren't many Vietnamese restaurants in Vancouver, A Taste of Vietnam stands out as a truly authentic restaurant focused on good food and filling portions. The casual décor invites couples and single diners to take a seat at one of the small tables topped with a token flower vase, and dimmed lights invite you to enjoy the dishes and sip drinks at leisure. If you'd like to take a few friends along, be sure to make reservations ahead of time so that this modest-sized restaurant can best accommodate you. Vegetarians can enjoy a large and satisfying menu of dishes like the mango basil salad roll and tasty vegetable curry.
Before & after dinner
If it's lunch you're after, A Taste of Vietnam offers a wide range of affordable specials and combos, including hearty Vietnamese sub sandwiches and combination dishes for under $7, and soup add-ons for under a toonie. If you're looking for a new dessert place, the restaurant's late hours and array of authentic sweets such as sticky rice with coconut cream, deep fried bananas and ice cream, and rainbow beans with coconut milk are sure to please tired taste buds.
A taste at home
Don't have the time or energy to dine out? A Taste of Vietnam offers take-out and free delivery for orders over $25, and even these qualify for the complimentary serving of fresh seasonal fruit that comes with every meal. No matter where you take your meal, you're sure to experience the exotic with dishes such as lemon grass chicken, spicy tamarind prawns and butterfly frog's legs.
