Very good value, Great Pho

I stopped in here after looking at a couple houses in the area. Not gonna lie, having a reasonably-priced pho joint nearby affected my eventual choice to move to Columbia. Restaurant serves a wide variety of asian fare, I was focused on the pho, but I saw little bits of Korean, Thai, Chinese, etc... read more

This has been a favorite of ours for years - The pho is fantastic, they offer a vegetarian version, the summer rolls delish with a peanut dipping sauce, the portions huge, the accoutrements for making pho to your own specifications (lime, basil, bean sprouts, plum sauce, hot sauce) are generous. Stop by! Or do take out! There's nothing like pho... More

Average strip mall, average service, average dining room, but good food. As an appetizer, I ordered the Beef Summer Rolls ($3.95). The two spring rolls were wrapped in rice paper and served with a small dish of peanut sauce. Yes, the rice paper is edible. The sauce was what made them especially good. I held the rolls upright and poured... More

This place is really good. We have been searching for a great Pho place in Baltimore area and was not pleased with any so far. There food tastes very authentic and fresh. The prices are very reasonable. Its not fancy dining, more of a casual bite to eat but we will definitely be dining there again.

We ate here for the first time the other day because we saw the good reviews on Google. Have to say, we were happy with our meal and would return. While we haven't tried other Vietnamese places in the area before (recently moved here), the amount and quantity of the food for the price is hard to beat. Like others... More

Good stand by menu items and tasty Pho means this is a regular haunt for me during the fall and winter months when I long for spicy and hearty broths. No frills dining area but who cares? The food is good and you can always do take out.

We were in the area for some shopping, and my pregnant wife suddenly had a craving for pho. We saw a sign for this place outside a grocery store in Ellicott City, so off we went. Although it looks like a little hole-in-the-wall in a strip mall, the inside seemed clean and the staff was very courteous. When we visited... More

Much better than Pho Dat Thanh (near by) for several reasons: The Decor is warmer though simple, the food more generous with the protein servings- more meat, more sauces to chose from on your table: home made chili sauce, korean bbq, Sirashira of course and soy to mention a few. Our family loves Vietnamese food, this will be a regular... More
