Doesn't disappoint

Second visit in two month's time, and again 4 folks enjoyed their meals. Sandwiches, spring rolls, pho, rice dish--all delicious. Interesting Vietnamese flavors are great! Service was attentive in this casual place.

My wife was born in Saigon, this passed her test. Pho was very good, Banh Mi was as well. Very small and crowded for lunch so get there early. Just 1 block off of King St.

My wife loves this place and would come here every week. She made me put in this review. Food is very fresh. Good for lunch.

The food here is great. I always order the vegan noodle salad. It is resonable and cute inside. My only complaint is that there are desserts on the menu and they NEVER have them. Last spring I called to complain and they said they would bring them back in the summer. This has not been the case.

We ordered the Classic and Pork Banh Mi's to go. If we had known it was a full service restaurant and not just a sandwich shop, we would have planned our day differently and tried their pho. We normally don't get sandwiches from restaurants because based on past experiences, they're very good at one or the other, not both. The... More

Very small place, but perfect for small groups (4 and under) or couples. Huge portions and the "imperial roll" is incredible Fresh ingredients and helpful staff. Casual dress.

Very cozy (perhaps too small as some others have commented) Vietnamese restaurant in the Old Alexandria (off one street from King on Cameron). Very good food and service. My wife said it was the best grilled chicken bun she ever had. My house pho was very good, but not the best. Nonetheless, very generous serving of meat--round steak and brisket.... More

It was my first time here and I am so happy I've found it! I had grilled catfish with vermicelli...it was amazing! Just the right sauce, fresh ingredients, delicious fish. This is a real deal.

I've been here numerous times because they NEVER disappoint. This is my family's favorite spot for pho and veggie egg rolls. One caveat though...they charge you for to-go bins for your leftover pho. They're service is pretty good but could be better. Sometimes they get pretty busy since it's a very small restaurant with limited seating.

This place needs to expand - they are always packed and you are packed in like sardines. Everything I've tried on the menu is good. The clientele is a tad rude though. It is Old Town, Alexandria so you get some people that need to check their attitude at the door. Great for takeout too. Reasonable prices. The wait staff... More
