The Best Vietnamese Restaurants in Toronto

The best Vietnamese restaurants in Toronto excel in the clean, fresh flavours of all the most popular dishes from piping bowls of phở to herby bún cha. Do yourself a favour and eat through the menu so you don’t miss out on other dishes like bò lá lot and sizzling bánh xèo. 

Here are the best Vietnamese restaurants in Toronto. 


Golden Turtle

Golden Turtle

Pho Rua Vang, more commonly known by its English name Golden Turtle, has been a favourite for years since 1987 thanks to fast service and a rare side patio off the Ossington strip. Phò and grilled pork vermicelli with crispy spring rolls are the highlights here. Bring cash.

Pho Tien Thanh

Sitting on Ossington just south of Golden Turtle is its longtime competitor. Pho Tien Thanh’s pink walls and famous “I love phò forever” sign is a beloved staple for inexpensive bowls of noodles—so much so that someone even made a short film about it.


Pho 90

Weston Road’s Vietnamese restaurant has a massive dining room with portions to match. The stylish ambiance is a plus, as is their extensive menu of cơm tấm dishes and vegan options like turmeric stir-fry noodles and fresh tofu rolls. 

Pho Metro

Scarborough’s reliable fan favourite has some of the best broth around. Well-frequented by the neighbourhood, the family-run restaurant serves bowls that are perfect for those cold winter days. Daily lunch specials with cash discounts are always a plus. 


Pho Linh

Soup noodle enthusiasts flock to this Brockton Village spot, not just for phò but for bò kho. If you’ve yet to try this spicy beef stew, this should be your place to do it. Don't forget their tasty bánh cuon. 


Pinky's Ca Phe

This intimate snack bar in 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 phò but a menu far more modern. 

Hanoi 3 Seasons

There are two locations of this restaurant to eat northern Vietnamese cuisine with good quality ingredients. The Leslieville location has a super cute back patio while the one in East Chinatown is a little simpler. 


Pho Vietnam

Head to Kennedy Road to experience the bustling lunch vibes at this spacious restaurant. You’ll need some Vietnamese drip coffee after a portion of their dry rice noodles or phò. Pho Vietnam also serves some hearty cháo, or rice porridge.

Mi Mi Restaurant

Mi Mi Restaurant

It's nothing but applause for this Gerrard Street gem, operating off the main drag of East Chinatown since 1994. Their assorted grilled meats platters are always a highlight but it’s the amazing service from the family that owns it that ties it all together.
