I like Pho Bang, but that would be more a lunch place for me.
Favourites near my place: Nhu Y, Y Lan, Pho Tay Ho.
They are good in the traditional Vietnamese dishes like Bo luc lac (saute beef), Ca kho to (fish in clay pot), Goi (papaya salad with beef jerky or seafood), Canh chua (tamarind soup), Tom rang muoi tieu (salt and pepper shrimp with head).
I had some of the other stir fried but not the noodle soups (pho, bun).
It's all in the broth for me and unfortunately not everyone is consistent on their broth.
Tried a new place on St-Laurent called Saigon and their broth is different from other places. I liked it but still debating if I really like it.

Address: 1086 Saint Laurent Boulevard, Montreal, QC H2Z
Another good one is Pho Lien (do not confuse with chez lien restaurants)
Address: 5703 Côte-des-Neiges Road, Montreal, QC H3S 1Y7
Saigonaise in Côte-des-Neiges (great "volcano" and caramelized salmon, or just go with a group and let the owner bring you a variety)
Cafe Saigon in the village (sate or curry soups are really special, great banh mi & spring rolls, all else is good, too)
