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

Overpriced for what you get. The food is just ok. One of the dishes supposedly would come with rice paper... No rice paper. The waitress told us that the description, on the menu, it was wrong... The service was fast and efficient.

A great find in Pentagon City. The pho alone is worth the visit but now I find the lettuce wraps to be my go to item.

This restaurant is great. It's well decorated without being pretentious, incredibly affordable, excellent service, and often very nice calming music! I go there often with my husband - I get the yellow vegetable curry, which has a really nice spicy flavor. It's a treat. The only negative thing I would say is to watch out with the lunch time bento... More

This was my first visit here. My boyfriend, who is a picky eater, and are both LOVED the food! We have already talked about traveling back to Arlington just for the food :)

Huge fan of Vietnamese food. I have been to Vietnam many times and have had the privilege of taking my family as well. When traveling stateside, we always try and seek out a decent Vietnamese restaurant to enjoy. Based on our location (Sheraton Pentagon City), this was close by and had a good reviews. Of course, I wasn't disappointed by... More

We've eaten dinner here a lot over the past few years. We can't find good and convenient Vietnamese food (our favorite places closed) so we keep coming back here. Like other Vietnamese places, Saigon Saigon grills up a storm. Grilled meats and shrimp are excellent. But not better than most others, so the rating is not high. We tried the... More

The title says it all. The waiters were very nice, but the food was extremely bland. I got a bistro box to sample different items
