  • Excellent food. . Always the delicate flavour that I want. I've enjoyed so many dishes here: pad thai, bun vermicelli, pho. Great cold rolls and spring rolls. And the drinks are always wonderful. Even my son enjoys eating here although he'll usually only eat the grilled meatballs and a fruit shake. They make an excellent coconut shake, also coconut juice, also avacado shake.

    Just a lovely place. A family atmosphere. Very clean.

  • Order: cold pork and shrimp rolls, seafood special pho, vermicelli with spring rolls, coconut juice, avacado shake, grilled meatballs

  • Only If I'm Desperate. I love pho and have tried a dozen places around Ottawa. Kanata doesn't have much selection and this place is walking distance from my home so maybe i'll end up there again. The broth is watery, only once was it average, but generally it doesn't taste much. Tried one of the curry dishes and was quite disappointed. Lots of one dimensional sauce, not much actual food. Wouldn't recommend eating here.

  • Order: Spring rolls, Rare beef pho, Seafood hu tieu, chicken curry

  • Great food. We each had an order of springrolls. Some of us ordered stir fried dishes, vermicelli, and noodle soup. The broth was really good. Friendly service. Back for sure.

  • I've heard from plenty about this restaurant and thought I'd drop by for once. What can I say? I absolutely love the food! I went with a couple of friends, both who have been to Pho Moonlight several times. I have to say, it was a great experience and the service we received was very friendly. We each ordered some appetizers: an order of springrolls, fresh shrimp and pork rolls, as well as an order of deep fried shrimp. All was delicious. As for our main courses, I ordered a spicy dish that was delectable. It had a bit of rice on the side alongside chicken and vegetables. You get a choice between red and green curry; green being the spiciest. I believe the order number was a 610. One friend of mine ordered Bun with chicken. I was told he often ordered that. It's his favourite dish, the 405. Lastly, my other friend ordered a 612. She said the taste was distinctive and very tasty. I'd like to try that dish sometime. I'm definitely coming back for more!

  • Order: spingrolls, fresh rolls (rice wraps), deep fried shrimp, bun, stir-fry dishes.

  • Great Vietnamese eat-in or take out in Kanata. Simple but clean atmosphere. Love the Buns and Soups.

    We eat here every few weeks. You can call ahead on the way home for quick take out service for family movie nights.

  • I love the soup here and the service. It doesn't matter if they gave me less or more meat in my soup, I am still happy with quality of the soup bowl. if you want something extra you just have to pay extra (common sense!) no need to hate. My family love to go there because is always clean.I love the washroom, smell good.

  • Order: chicken soup and pad thai

  • Service is dependable on who works there. I don't mind most of them except the one that's always on the phone(The owner). The soup is not as tasty as the ones in chinatown or most of downtown. There's less meat in the soup, it's really noticeable, again comparing to all the others in chinatown. The noodles are less too. Kinda feel like I'm doing a check list. The strange thing is that it cost me more to eat here then it does in Chinatown. Now that actually makes me mad. Less amount of meat for a higher price. For service like I said it depends on the days. I hear alot of rumors about them being bad, the truth is they are just stingy. And for those who complain about msg I don't know why you are having soup at a vietnamies place. It's kinda funny. Once in a couple months I can't help my craving for pho and will break for one in chinatown but I don't recommend this area to thoses for tastes or quantity.

    P.S remember though business is more limit for restuarant in Kanata then it is downtown.

  • well i haven't been there for a while but don't plan on going anytime soon so i don't know but from what i have heard the portions are still small but a dollar more compare to the portions and prices in chinatown or other pho places your getting riped off cause a large at moonlight is like a medium in chinatown if you don't believe me try it for yourself hope your not hungry cause you'll leave hungry plus in chinatown you could get at some places combos pho/springroll/drink all for under 10 dollars at moonlight if you order the large special its just a bigger bowl with the same amount of noodles as a medium same amount of condiments as a medium "we compared the bowls side by side with a medium" just more broth plus the broth is not that great either my buddy couldn't finish a large in chinatown but at moonlight it was easy and hes a big guy the rice dishes are small and the meat is dry and thin not filling at all i don't know how you could have a thai dish like pad thai in a vietnamese resturant just wrong well I would rather have Authentic Vietnamese food instead of Finest any day but thats just me !!!

  • Order: the large special and rice dish
