After reading the great reviews, I decided to drive from Columbia to Silver Spring. The 15 min trip was well worth it! I ordered a large bowl of well-done beef and brisket Pho for $8.99 and an Avocado smoothie for $4.49. The broth was delicious and the meat was tasty! The service was great too!! I will be back with... More

This was by far one of the best Pho (pronounced fuh) meals my dining partner and I have ever eaten. The noodles were delicious, the meat was tender, Thai ice tea was refreshing, and the service was great.

This family owned Vietnamese Pho restaurant is really good. The soup broth is rich and tasty, the service is courteous and prompt. I always order #15, with raw meat, that gently cooks in the hot broth, making it even richer.

Keeping it simple this place does soup and rolls; that is about it. The usual alternatives in Pho are all good based on a solid broth that is great for a rainy day. I've always got the large bowl and my wife has gone small; I like the leftovers as I can almost never finish a whole large order. Orders... More

My daughter seems to like this place, personally I think is just hit water with ton of bean sprouts and noodles, not my idea of healthy or tasty, but once again if you like pho this is a friendly clean place

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
