This is now our favorite restaurant! The food is fresh, flavorful, creative and delicious. The service is terrific as well and you are treated like family.

My wife has a low fat meal restriction and Pho soup with chicken and vegetables is perfect for her. I have no diet restrictions but love this soup. The Veranda was listed in TA with a good review so we tried it. The restaurant wasn't much to look as from the outside but inside it was cozy and clean. The... More

Portland Maine has a lot of great food and restaurants.You would be thrilled if you took a trip and dined at the famous places. When we want an inexpressive meal that's delicious we go to the Veranda noodle bar. The vermicelli dishes (V1-V15) and the pho (traditional Vietnamese soup) are our staples. The fresh spring rolls are as good as... More

Fans of the good old Chinese staple, lo mein, are in for a treat...The variety of noodles, the flavorful beef, pork, and shrimp, and the perfect use of garlic make for the best noodle dishes in Portland...Cooked to perfection, served promptly, and followed by large fresh orange sections, this restaurant provides a light and delicious dining experience that you`re likely...

The pho is fresh and plentiful, with plenty of spice for those who choose but available in a tame version too - comfort food that you dream about. On top of that, the service is great - no waiting and yet no pressure to finish up - and the complimentary oranges at the end are a delight for children and... More

I had a friend visiting over the weekend who is a vegetarian, and we wanted a decent place to go for lunch. He was treating me for my birthday, and I remembered this place, which I've been to twice before. We went on a Saturday afternoon, and the dining room was moderately busy. There is essentially nothing extraordinary about the... More

This is about our 10th-12th visit here. The pho (hot rice noodle soup, with options for vegetarian, chicken, or beef add-ins) is delicious; the fried spring rolls are amazing; the vermicelli dishes are super. Basically, we've never had anything disappointing. But the service can be very unpredictable--the waitress takes forever to come over for drinks orders, and then doesn't refill... More

Our go-to never fail and once again a total yum on the 31st. We all went with 3 different Vermicelli Bowl combinations and so-so good!! Appetizers were those addictive fresh vegetable spring rolls and an order of Crab Rangoon. Attentive service, Fantastic Food, and yes we will continue to come back again and again.

Fresh veggies and lots of them, along with hot broth, tender noodles, yummy grilled shrimp. The service was fast and pleasant. The bill was under $40 for the... More

Just a great spot for noodles and stir fry. Wife had curry that was top notch and I had Basel stir fry.. Both with chicken. Generous portions and great jasmine iced tea.
