Good choice for Vietnamese food

This is a pretty small place but it serves very good Vietnamese cuisine. The menu is surprisingly varied for such a small establishment.

Food was so good we went two nights in a row! The vegetable spring rolls with vermicelli were excellent as was the chicken in spicy yellow cream sauce - not sure of the 'official, name. Service was friendly, professional and efficient. Decor was comfortable, clean and attractive. The restaurant was not busy but nor was anywhere around. Looking forward to... More

Husband and I visited this restaurant for first time last week. It was worth the trip. The wait staff is really helpful and answered our questions. We had parked in the lot behind the restaurant and one of the waiters even went out to check that we had the proper time on the meter (How is that for service????) The... More

I work near Saigon Saigon, and it is one of my favorite places to have lunch. For $11, one can get a Bento Lunch Box with a selection of either chicken, shrimp, or salmon prepared in a variety of different ways. I always get the Ginger Lemongrass Chicken. I find it consistently delicious. It's served with a generous portion of... More

A really disappointing experience... First, we Waited 20 minutes for the waiter to take our order ( on a Wednesday night with maybe 3 other tables occupied). The food was ok but what ruined the experience for me was the fact that I found a sticker ( the kind you see in the produce section in the grocery store) still... More

One of the nicer Vietnamese places I've been to. Like the fact this is close to the Pentagon City Metro station. Ordered the Pho, which came out quickly (should expect that), and was able to get out in about 30 minutes, Very, very convenient.

This was our first visit to this place. We arrived about 7:15 pm on a Tue in early Aug. There were 3-4 parties inside and 2 parties sitting outside. The dining area is small but decorated nicely. A cozy local place. There were about 6-8 tables on the right side as you enter and 4-5 tables in the center. There... More

Service: We have eaten here regularly for a few years. The service is always polite and attentive. Food: Pad Thai and Pho tastes great, portions are just right, and food gets to you fairly quickly. Seating: Both inside and outside is available during the summer. Dog friendly.

I really enjoy the food and the service here. Have tried their appetizers, rice dishes-all good. My favorite is their lunch boxes: a variety of protein dishes to choose from: eg lemongrass salmon, Penang chicken/prawn..comes with spring roll, salad and rice-good value. The Vietnamese coffee quality if more consistent even better..different people do differently.. Love also their dessert, smoothies and... More
