We looked up this one on TA as we were in the area, glad we did. Our youngest had a pork Banh Mi and ate every bit without sharing so he loved it. The rest us had the house Pho, probably the best broth I've ever had, really outstanding! I would give a five star if it had better facilities,... More

We just returned from a trip to Vietnam where we fell in love with the food. We came upon this place when we wanted to re-capture our experience. We couldn't have made a better choice! We both had beef pho dishes (me with vermicelli & Tom with rice noodles), & they were terrific--hearty & bursting with flavor. We loved the... More

After returning from Vietnam I was having serious Bahn Mi withdrawal when found this spot, and it did not disappoint! The baguettes are that perfect level of crisp and soft and the fillings are on point. To top it off, they even serve Beer Lao! I haven't found anywhere else that serves quite possibly my favorite beer. The staff is... More

A really good shop specialized in Vietnamese cuisine on Cameron street. Nice pho, good baguette (or banh mi in Vietnamese). But trust me, if you have a chance to try this in Vietnam, you'll find that it could be even more delicious!

They have really hit their stride. Great Pho and sandwiches, reasonably priced. I only wish they delivered in Old Town! Small, but charming space with good service.

after movie dinner around 8:30 when the crowd has dies down is the perfect time to get a choice table. Started with the tamarind roll which is a summer roll stuffed with tofu basil in a peanut sauce which was perfect. The filet mignonette pho was perfect. A savory broth not too salty with thin strips of filet and all... More

Been here twice in the last week. Both times had two different vermicelli dishes- wonderful. The lemongrass chicken was my favorite. Took my 1.5 year old here and she enjoyed the imperial rolls and some of my noodles. They have children's menu items as well but the pork in the dish I had ordered for her was too tough. Summer...

This was my first time experiencing PHO. It was quite delicious and surprisingly hearty. I was full after my boyfriend and I shared an appetizer of the steamed spring rolls and the house pho. It was served with sprouts and mint. It was DELICIOUS. I want to eat here every week. The pho had lots of noodles and meat so... More

Best PHO? Why you ask. Great beef broth 5 out of 5. Lots of noodles 5 out of 5. Lots of meat in "The Works" version, just like they promised.... Meat, gristle, fat and yes..... Tripe. 6 out of 5. All the usual sprouts and fresh flavorful basil. Easy to see why high rated. Small and unassuming dining area. I... More

My wife and I have been eating at Vietnamese restaurants since 1973 when I was assigned to the US Embassy in Saigon. Since then we have eaten at Vietnamese restaurants all over the world and mostly here in Northern Virginia. Banh Mi was a real surprise! Wish we would have found it sooner. We went on a Sunday afternoon, and... More
