Best Vietnamese Food Ever

I had the number 3 The flaming Beef, it was the best food I have tasted in a long time. Will definitely be coming back when I am in town again

Simple restaurant in the heart of Bethesda. One orders upon entry and then takes a seat/table. We have tried some noodle dishes. They were good but not extraordinary. However some of the appetizers were well prepared, not greasy, and particularly tasty. The rare beef pho is to die for. I compare pho by the broth. This is pleasant to the... More

I had lunch there on 23 September. The food was well prepared and quite delicious. It was grilled shrimp and scallops, The bowl itself was appealing and the price was quite good. That said, the rest of the experience was less than posh. To place an order one stands in line and pays in advance. Thereafter one is awarded a... More

Perfect for a quick lunch outside of the office. You come in, you order and pay, and then you pick up your food, bus it yourself and get on your merry way. It's never too busy, and it's not going to have a million menu items. But if you're looking for the only decent bowl of pho (maybe only?) in... More

Reading other reviews I agree this place is a dive, but with great food. Recommend eating out on patio or go as take out. We were in town 3 nights and ate there twice. The PHO and Fried Rice were excellent. The fried rice is different then Chinese fried rice and better. Employees are very friendly.

We live right around the corner and, frankly, this is our goto place for a quick, inexpensive, comfort meal. As vegans we're happy too because they make a 100% vegan pho. Not fancy, not service oriented, but nice for a quick meal. I would recommend it for all in our neighborhood. BTW, most importantly, the food is very tasty and... More

Very small and not much atmosphere but the food is terrific and very reasonably priced. I've eaten here several times and have been very happy with what I've ordered.

This has become one of my favorite inexpensive places to get a quick lunch or dinner. Nothing fancy on the décor but there is indoor seating, about 8 tables, and the food tastes great. It's not table service - you order at the register and pay, then pick up when your order is ready. Delicious Pho soup and fried rice... More

There are a great many choices for lunch in Dethesda, MD, most within walking distance of one another. With so many choices, it should not be difficult to find a really good cheap lunch. Walk no further than Rice Paddies Grill. Its small, funky and no where as flashy as the national chains that are close by. The rice platters... More

Fast cheap Vietnamese dinner or take-out. There were locals eating there which tells me something. Giant bowl of soup and rice-paper shrimp rolls were ~$12. No atmosphere but great food dirt cheap and fast.
