The Golden Turtle, reborn: a quick tour of the renovated Ossington Vietnamese staple

The Golden Turtle, reborn: a quick tour of the renovated Ossington Vietnamese staple

Before and after 

Faithful west-side devotees of the Golden Turtle, Ossington’s beloved pho institution, were distraught last month when they discovered it papered up. After soldiering through a post–New Year’s recovery period without the usual salty-spicy fortification, they can now breathe easy: it’s back, it’s a little shinier and the prices are unchanged. We dropped by to check out the new art, chandeliers, windows and kitchen.
