This is a great little pho restaurant with very good food and great service. On the positive side, it is clean, quick, friendly, and the pho is quite good. On the downside, the menu is limited to pho and a few appetizers and the setting is a bit sparse. Better Vietnamese food can be had in places like Rockville and... More

We have been coming here for pho for about a year. Each visit has been consistently excellent. The staff are friendly; it appears to be a family-run business. The location and decor are nothing special, but the restaurant is always clean and comfortable. The pho is great, with plenty of available additions to make it your own (sprouts, Thai basil,...

This little restaurant, in a very nondescript plaza actually has some decent Pho, which the name implies. There are a number of variations on this item, and the beef broth was very good. The usual sides that come with (bean sprouts, mint and limes), were all very fresh and enjoyable. I gave this a 4 star review as they were... More

Amazing. Authentic. Friendly staff. Quick service. You can't get better pho in this area. This place gives dc a run for its money. So much flavor in the pho. Delicious. I was a happy camper.

The pho here is really good, and the summer rolls seem to have very fresh ingredients, and they put basil in them which I ususally don't see. Small restaurant with carry out, very pleasant help. I get pho a lot, and there are closer places but this is worth the extra drive.

Not a fancy place. But staff are friendly and service is prompt. I had the Pho Tai Chin, which was nothing short of fantastic. If you like Pho - I highly recommend this place.

We live in the neighborhood and have been ordering food from Pho Real since it opened. We usually order the same items and they are always consistently excellent! Chicken Pho, summer and spring rolls. The only glitch is to remind them to put extra hoi sin sauce in our bag since we don't like our soup too spicey. The herbs... More

The meat, vegetables and noodles are average but the broth is very bland. The counter people were okay but got our order totally confused. I would not say this was a good place for Pho, at best okay.

Decent cheap pho, though the cash only thing is obnoxious since I'm card-addicted..
