We came couple times for lunch, can't beat it, $7 for a bowl of pho, or fried rice or vermicille, or couple other choices. For another $3 will give you an appetizer and a drink. Drink is in a can, not fountain soda, extra point here. Plenty public parking around the place, very convenience. Sincere service and all, will definitely... More

Had the chance to eat here with several friends. All of us had really fine meals. Everything was beautifully prepared, tasty, and very fairly priced. I will certainly return the next time I am in the area.

This Vietnamese Restaurant in the City of Fairfax offers tasty, reasonably priced food in a comfortable setting. We visited on a Friday evening for the first time and ordered spring rolls to share (you get three with two dipping sauces: hot and hotter), lemon grass chicken, and seafood stir-fried with vegetables. A pleasant surprise was a complimentary order of shrimp... More

I went here last friday evening with some girlfriends because it smells so good everytime I drive by. I definitely was not disappointed! We started off with the Spring Rolls which were very tasty. I had the mango bubble tea, delicious! My friend and I had the chicken and pork vermicelli dishes, a big portion for a decent price. The... More

Yes, Virginia! It is possible to have a delicious lunch in downtown Fairfax, VA for under $5! Though it’s noted for Pho, East Wind also has a fantastic Bánh mì (Vietnamese sandwich) special for under $5. East Wind is a diamond in the rough. The ambiance is comfortable, a little on the shabby side. There’s a tiny outdoor dining area... More

We have dined at East Wind several times in the past few months. The superb service, beautiful decor and excellent food never vary. The attentive friendly servers provide A+++ service without hovering. The hot, fresh, tasty food is beautifully presented and never disappoints. This is our "go to" restaurant. We chose dining here in honor of our 40th anniversary because... More

The owner is really nice and very involved in the business. He is willing to accommodate whatever you may need or want. Food is excellent, especially shaky beef.

The food is good and the prices reasonable, but what i tend to really be drawn to is a restaurant that treats you right. These folks are wonderful, friendly, accommodating, etc. It makes you feel good to support a local restaurant like this.

My only regret is that I did not know that East Wind existed until two months ago. The food is very good and the service is commendable. The owner is very accommodating to menu suggestions and will help those who are undecided as to select from the large choices.

We ate at the East Wind Vietnamese Restaurant in Fairfax last year and have tried several other Vietnamese restaurants since. The problem was that they were not as satisfying. At East Wind my husband tried the Beef Pho soup and I tried the Seafood Stir-Fry after a plate fresh noodle garden rolls. The soup was loaded with rice noodles, garnishes... More
