    I realize there may be some differences between the 2 locations, but we regularly go to the Sherwood Park Saigon Cuisine for lunch at work and the food is delish.

      is this the one in Riverbend Square, betwwn Papa Georges pizza and the pasta restaurant? If so, had lunch there once and thought it was OK. Not a huge fan of vietnamese food in general but I'l go back.

        DG - yes its the one in Riverbend Square. Ordered take-away pho and spring rolls the other night. We needed to find a pho place closer to home rather than making the trek West to La Pagode. The pho was OK. A little pricey for the amount of meat and noodles we got. The soup needed a boost in flavor. Good thing was it wasn't laced with tons MSG. The spring rolls were NOT OK. For $7.25 we got 6 very small rolls with lots of wrapper tightly around barely noticable filling. Never ordreing those again.

        Would give this place a go again, since its close to home and establishment was clean. NOTE - website with menu prices is OLD, add minimum of 10% to posted pricing.

          too hungry:

          Is La Pagode still in operation?

          I have never been but do recollect seeing the sign when I was NB on 170th but thought they had been replaced by a Starbucks or something else.

            La Pagode is still there in the same little strip mall (across the street from WEM) but it has moved a little further deeper west into the interior of the mall. It seems a little bit bigger now too.
