    Default Amongst the shittiest and most deceiving Vietnamese Restaurant!

    Okay, I just got back from that Vietnamese restaurant, Oriental Phoenix out on barlow trail! Okay, that is like the whitest washed asian place I've been to! The food was mediocre and virtually everyone that works there was white!! haah, not that there's anything wrong with that but it was like a scene from an old movie where they got white people to play asian characters! Okay, not that bad, but you get the point. The servings were tiny and the price was more than what you'd expect to pay at any Vietnamese rest.

    Anyway, the rest. itself was very nice, very clean (especially the bathrooms) unlike most vietnamese restaurants, but then again, I don't eat in the bathroom...unless I'm really really drunk! haha, and the only Vietnamese rest. that parallels this one for cleanliness is Bagolac. Only difference is bagolac is WAY better food, WAY bigger portions, and WAY hotter staff!! Especially the owner! Yah, and the cook aint bad too, aye del lude? hahahaha

    Anyway, just wanted to share my experience there. Food was decent, service was okay (old white lady), layout and appearance of restaurant was excellent (it didn't look like they got the meat from out in the alley)


    Food: 6/10
    Portions: 3/10
    Ambiance: 5/10
    Authenticity: 2/10
    Restaurant Presentation: 9/10

    I don't know, but maybe a good authentic vietnamese outing has to parallel eating in a crowded, small room with no elbow room and the yelling of "PHO DAC BIET, UH HUH, ANYTHING ELSE?" tied in with....I don't know....oh let's say.....ASIANS!!!! can make me feel like I'm actually eating vietnamese food!! hahaha

    Oriental Phoenix has been white washed ever since they opened by Macleod. Went there a couple years ago, and haven't gone back since. It use to be good when it was in the ghetto(17th Ave SE) back in the day.

    Oriental Phoenix sucks...the one downtown sucks ass too. $7-$8 for a tiny bowl of Pho...suprising how many caucasians are willing to pay so much for noodles, raw beef, and water.

    Yah man, it’s like the whities go for the atmosphere or something hahaha, but really, it was totally a nice place. The cleanliness, the décor and things like the seats, tables etc. were really on par with bagolac. It was a hell of a lot bigger too, but yah, the only reason you don’t see many whities at those little Vietnamese restaurants is cause they’re too busy getting fucked over by paying upwards of 10 bux for such a small bowl of pho! And I was actually debating about getting it but then I thought to myself….really, do I want to try that shit? Hahaha. Also, the only time you see a white person in a Vietnamese restaurant is if A. He thought it was the door to the tim Horton’s or B. he’s with a shit load of Asians and some bad shit is about to go down….like base ball bats and machetes are gonna start swinging!! hahaha

    But really, some times you wanna impress a girl and take her out, that’s cool cuz if you’re trying to impress her and you take her to a place like Pho Rang Dong in the heart of Forest Lawn…..you may as well take her to Macdonalds! hahahaha

    Did you eat the Pho there? The soup was nasty!
    It was like water and the only thing that gave it taste was the "IMITATION CRAB" that they put in it.
    I didnt know PHO had BBQ pork in it either.

    I believe it was 7 bucks for a large, which would be a small at bagolac or Pho Xuan.

    Yeah, Bagolac is a buck or 2 more for a bowl of Pho, but at least the place is nice and clean, and have great staff. I've had pho at some pretty shady establishments...Mind you one of them was open all the time and when you're craving Pho at 2:30 in the morning, you look past the cosmetic appeal, haha
