Since 1995, Mrs. Nguyen Thi Thanh, most famously known as the legendary lunch lady, has served rotating daily noodle soups to Saigon locals and world travelers. 

“It’s like discovering new neighborhoods every few mouthfuls.”
- Anthony Bourdain on Mrs. Thanh’s soups, No Reservations

It has always been a dream of hers to share her food with the world. The moment she met Victoria it was an instant connection—two “lunch ladies” with the same passion. Now, Victoria’s Five Elements restaurant turns a new leaf, becoming the home of Lunch Lady in Vancouver. The humble and inspiring story of Lunch Lady takes its next steps in a city that champions culinary diversity in hopes of introducing the true flavors of Vietnam.

    Went to the lunch lady for my birthday with some family and friends and we absolutely LOVED it! The service, the ambience and the food was perfect. The staff was so lovely and checked in the perfect amount, they also had some awesome recommendations. We got a couple appetizers that were all delicious but our favourite was the carpaccio, we also ordered taro chips and our waiter suggested that we place the carpaccio on top of the taro chips and wow what a beautiful combination. Cant say enough great things about the lunch lady, if you’ve never been please do yourself a favour and go check it out!

    Overall, a good dinner. The spring rolls were very standard so wouldn't recommend paying $11 for them. The Wagyu beef pho was unfortunately SO salty, which we did tell our server and she kindly apologized but didn't say if it was meant to be salty. It was the most disappointing and thought it was priced at $32 for a reason...sadly it was not worth it. The crab fried rice was the winner! Would definitely come back just to order that again. The tofu was also very delicious! The sauce on it was amazing and super crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside.

    Everything was great except the time limit. Seatings are only 90 minutes in duration so we were ushered out before having time for dessert and without really finishing our dinner conversation with our friends. I don’t think 90minutes is realistic for a Saturday night dinner timeframe. I think lunch lady should extend the allowable time in favour of letting guests have a good experience.

    Delicious food! Service was attentive, friendly and food came out in a reasonable amount of time. We really liked the steak luc lac with fries and pho bo. We also got a dish with chicken and slaw which was tasty but I'd pass on it next time. Restaurant was noisy due to acoustics. We're looking forward to coming back!

    Best Vietnamese-fusion in town if you don't mind some higher prices and 1.5 hour maximum stays which means no lingering for longer catch ups with friends.

    Overpriced food for the quality and amount. 34 dollars for a cold steak. There are many other amazing vietnamese restaurants in Vancouver; this restaurant was disappointing.

    The vibe is nice for a drink at the bar but the food definitely did not meet my expectations. Bone marrow was drenched in hoisin and over powered the dish, the clams were almost flavourless and under seasoned and the garlic in the noodles was burnt and bitter. I’m not usually interested to write this type of review but I was pretty disappointed in my experience. Initial service was also quite slow.

    I went with my gf on a Sunday evening, and was looking forward to trying the "world famous" lunch lady, but unfortunately came out disappointed. To start, the food quite honestly was overpriced for the portion. We got the beef noodle soup (pho-bo) and the taste nor the quantity was worth $18. The bone marrow with "secret sauce" which tasted like hoisin (personally love hoisin) was on the salty side and in my opinion not a good complement to the biscuits. The clams served with a rich lemongrass broth had great umami, so we enjoyed that. But again the dishes felt overpriced, although I guess it comes with the name and costs in Vancouver. Service was fine and we didn't experience anything that made us uncomfortable. We sat at the outdoor patio space. That being said, our experience at lunch lady was more mediocre than legendary.

    Food taste is ok, not bad just like other Pho places I’ve tried before but the price is not worth it. Too expensive for the quality. I’ve ordered wagyu Pho but the broth was just a bit warm, so the marrow and wagyu were still so raw after I engulfed in the broth, they put too much Pho noodle for one portion. Never come back again.

    Overhyped and overpriced. Too much dried shrimp in the XO Noodles for my taste. Shrimp perfectly fried but dipping sauce could have used more zip. Waitress was functional but added little to the experience.

    We shared four menu items. Two starters Rau Xao (stir fried vegetables with garlic. And the Truffle Chicken Salad, outstanding flavors and freshness. The mains were The GA Roll (chicken roulade) - unbelievable preparation, presentation and flavors. And the Pho Bo (House beef noodle soup) great flavor, fresh vegetables, noodles were perfect and the extra fresh herbs were delicious.

    We loved our dinner at The Lunch Lady. As travellers, we’re really happy to have stopped since this is exactly the type of place you want to try that’s unique to Vancouver. We took the carpaccio and the crispy prawns as appetizers, which were both awesome! We also took the pork spring roll, but they were quite average and looking back we wouldn’t order again. Our mains were the garlic sauté noodles and the steak, both were delicious! I definitely recommend this spot.

    Trendy but over priced. Cramped. Loud. Should have eaten outside on the street. Did not appreciate the tiny table in the middle of the room with servers darting front and back. An attempt at Fusion but much better value at any ma and pa Vietnamese restaurant not in this part of town.
