The only entrée that is worth trying is the chả giò. The rest was very mediocre and tasteless. I visited the Division St store which is loacated inside a house. The restaurant is clean but I don’t like how the washroom door and the kitchen door were both wide open.

A traditional beef noodle soup. Vietnamese rice noodles layered with medium-well beff in our homemade broth. Garnished with white onions, green onions and cilantro, garlic oil, lemon and served with hoisin sauce and Sriracha.
One of the most disgusting phố I’ve had. The soup was flavourless and the beef cuts were very tough.
Bún chả giò thịt nướng, with shrimp
This dish is a signature dish of Vietnamese cooking and the handsdown favourite at Saigon Delights. Vietnamese rice noodles, spring rolls and your choice of grilled meat, topped with fresh greens and roasted peanuts. Served with nuoc mam to flavour.
Chả giò was freshly made. It had a nice crunch and the fillings were moist and flavourful. There’s also quite a bit of filling in it. Noodle was not overcooked, it was not dry or too soggy. I know a lot of people recommend this dish, and I can see why. Definitely not overrated.
Vietnamese-style crêpes made from a blend of rice flour, coconut milk and yellow curry, filled with minced chicken, shrimp and sprouts, topped with fresh greens and served with nuoc mam to flavour.
It’s a very nice bánh xèo. It’s crispy on the outside but soft in the inside. Filling was also very moist and tasty. It’s also not too greasy.
It’s a pleasant discovery that they serve it the coffee in the traditional drip style. A long time ago I ordered iced coffee and Mekong (which I expected to be served in a drip style) but it just came out as a plain cup of coffee with condensed milk already stirred in.
