The Best Vietnamese Restaurants in Toronto

The best Vietnamese restaurants have pho, spring rolls, and bún cha down to a science. There's plenty of things to enjoy about Vietnamese cuisine, from the clean, complex flavours of a rare pho broth to the savoury fish sauce. At the end of the day, though, cheap prices top it all.

Here are the best Vietnamese restaurants in Toronto. 


Golden Turtle

Golden Turtle

Also known as Pho Rua Vang, this old Ossington classic has been a favourite for years in large part to its fast service, great prices and side patio. It's cash-only here so come prepared to fork out the dollar bills their famous beef phos.

Pho Tien Thanh

Sitting on Ossington just south of Golden Turtle is its biggest competitor, Pho Tien Thanh. There's no patio here, but a meal in this small pink-walled establishment is guaranteed to be generously portioned and super well-priced.


Pinky's Ca Phe

Pinky's Ca Phe

This intimate snack bar on Little Italy is definitely not an old school joint, but it has all the vibes of a 70's era hole-in-the-wall. By the same people behind Hanmoto and OddSeoul, you won't find regular items like plain ol' pho but you'll get something far fancier than that.

If you're a self-proclaimed pho enthusiast, a visit to this Brockton Village Vietnamese spot is a must. You'll find fresh ingredients in their bowls of satisfying soup noodles and crave-worthy fried spring rolls.


Pho Metro

A Scarborough fave, this humble plaza shop on Lawrence East has some of the best pho broth around. I recommend taking a sip before dousing your noodles with hoisin and hot sauce. Expect a lineup on weekends: their vermicelli is also worth a try.


Saigon Star

These guys are known for one thing: curry crab. Nestled in a Highway 7 plaza, Saigon is definitely more of a dinner spot than a quick place to drop by for lunch. Everything here is good for sharing. Highly recommended: roti, to go with all that curry.

Pho Hung

Pho Hung

Follow the laughing cow marquee into this Chinatown institution for hearty bowls of broth filled with rice noodles. The cash-only Pho Hung has been around for years. Step into this corner establishment for a sunny meal in a well-lit restaurant.


Hanoi 3 Seasons

Hanoi 3 Seasons

People tend to forget about the east side as a destination for good Vietnamese food. This restaurant specializes in North Vietnamese with good quality ingredients in a low key setting. They also have a cute backyard patio.

Vit Beo

It seems all the hip Vietnamese spots are snack bars these days. Open into the late morning most days, this Bloorcourt eatery has decked-out (and pricier) takes on standard items like congee and fried shrimp, served alongside cocktails.
