Very Good Pho

The two of us had lunch here and shared a Vietnamese Spring Roll (crispy with pork and comes with a sweet pepper vinegar dipping sauce) and Pho. There is a multitude of types of meat you can add and they are very generous with the accompaniments (bean sprouts, cilantro, jalapeños and basil). The... read more

I am usually here once a week, generally after a work out. The Pho is delicious and Pork Summer Rolls are also amazing. The restaurant seats you right away, and immediately you are greeted with water cups. It is never more than a 2 to 3 minute wait before the waitress/waiter comes over. The staff is friendly and attentive even... More

We had a big group so we ordered many different dishes. The only dish that looked decent was the pork chop and rice. The pho was very bland. The kids wanted chowfoon so we order 5 chowfoon dishes but they were only able to make 2. The spring rolls were chewy because there was too much wrap. The pad thai... More

Going away luncheon had plenty of room. Roughly half ordered appetizers, about half ordered pho, and several of us had the pork pot - all thirteen of us seemed satisfied.

This is our favorite restaurant for Vietnamese cuisine for over 10 years. The favorites here compare well to those I experienced in Saigon. Speciality soups such as asparagus and crab or Vietnamese hot and sour chicken besides the Pho are outstanding. Summer rolls and Lemongrass chicken are regular favorites and consistently good. 4 stars instead of 5 because service and... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant one night when we didn't have the kids. We ordered the soup bowls. They had a variety of bowls to choose from and the portions were huge. They have Sirachi and duck sauce on the table so you can add slice or sweet to your soup. We also ordered the spring rolls, they... More

I enjoy Vietnamese food and consequently like to expose my friends to new flavors. While ambiance may not be romantic or upscale, the food is good and I have never had a friend leave disappointed.Most ask to return.

Awesome variety of offerings, and everything really great & generous portions. Also very reasonable in price. Although the wait staff may not linger much for pleasantries, I've always found them very helpful & efficient. I love the way this restaurant doesn't mess around. They get people served, fed & out the door. I love that! It is my first local... More

Why I am writing this review? I had to search for stories of this place being so entirely rude & racist! In Columbia MD, I have not found another Pho restaurant, so I have been tolerant of their poor service and unprofessional actions. I will no longer eat there. Also, I do not lobby the claim of racism lightly. On... More

It has an enormous menu. I give it three and not four stars only because, while some dishes are outstanding, others are disappointing because they are so bland. You have to eat here a few times to get a sense of what to order. It's always crowded for lunch, but the wait for a table is not long. You can... More
