A pleasant small restaurant with good service and excellent food. The sauces were great, the veggies very fresh and if I lived closer I'd definitely eat there more often.

Friends had been there before and so we went again. I had the recommended barbecue pork bowl specialty. Ate it all and could have had more! Tasty! They enjoyed their more traditional pho soup somethings. And we shared a nice dry red. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. We walked there from our hotels over on Jeff Davis' hotel row near...

The pho here is excellent and fast. We stop by once or twice a month to grab some pho and sometimes a vegetable springroll. During the better weather, it is nice to sit out and have a beer and try the imperial rice also.

Great service, food, and prices. Easy to get in and out while dining with a baby. This place has traditional Vietnamese PHO which is a favorite of mine. We had lots of visitors this past winter and this was the place to introduce our friends to PHO. I have no dislikes about this restaurants The wait staff is friendly and... More

Very good food and the Pho portions are HUGE. All fresh ingredients, lots of great noodles. The service was good but the atmosphere was not well lit. Also it was hot and a/c was probably off

Another hidden gem on Joyce, good luck with street parking in the Pentagon Row area. Once inside life slows down, the staff and kitchen carry you away to a marvelous dining experience. The Pho Pad Thai with generous servings of beef, noodles and especially fresh basil is the best anywhere this side of the Pacific. We have returned dozens of... More

4 of us ate here while on a family holiday. We all really enjoyed our meal. My 9 year old loved the noodle soup. 2 in the party had chicken dishes which they enjoyed and I had a seafood red curry which was really really good. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

My favorites here are the beef and chicken skewer appetizer. The yellow noodles with shrimp and pork is also good. My daughter absolutely loves the spicy yellow curry chicken.

Met some friends for dinner here and enjoyed it. Judging from some of the other reviews, the pho is pretty good, but it was a warm day, so I didn't have it. We had some appetizers and I had the curry, which was good. Only complaint is that they had run out of all of the vietnamese beers on the... More

I often have lunch on Pentagon Row, either meeting friends at lunch or when I'm shopping. The selection is fairly middle of the road. This Vietnamese place is in the top quarter of that group. I've had the bento box lunch special several times and find the portions quite sufficient and the ginger lemongrass and curry preps quite decent. Should... More
