5136 Park Avenue, Montreal, QC
Well, in the age of Twitter I don't see why I should bother to dignify this place with more than a passing review.
: Not a hole in the wall, please, some atmosphere at least for an out-of-towner guest
Verdict: horrible. Clientèle alone point to its failures; bleached or noired 50-something Québecoises are the main occupants.
Service: Atrocious. And I NEVER whine about service, but this was exceptionally bad.
Food: Mediocre, bland, too sweet
Spectacular failure: "Lemongrass Shrimp": FIVE smallish shrimp in a sea of vegetables in a sickly-sweet sauce.
Coup de grâce: bowl of steamed rice equivalent to a pool ball and a half.
Price: Fucking expensive for BYOB Vietnamese. $70+ for three and no frills.
Review: Anyone who has ever recommended this place needs to be replaced with a zombie.
