Authentic: Vietnamese soup

Pleased to see items that aren't on every pho menu: Bun Bo Hue (spicy delicious) and Bun Rieu (tasty, delicious, made with crab paste). All other diners were Vietnamese when we had lunch here. This Vietnamese neighborhood has a SE Asian small-town feel. Family-run restaurants serving simple fare... read more

The place had a good vibe , BUT the food isn't all that authentic. The food looked good just by sight , but it didn't really taste as good as it looks !

Lots of food. Pretty good! The staff were really helpful. My friend had been feeling ill and they made ginger tea for her to settle her stomach.

Decided to visit after reading the reviews. I ordered the spicy pork bahn mi. Excelkent. Meat was just right and French bread was very nice. This place is NOT like the usual dingy greasy pho pkaces in Tacoma.

I've been traveling to the Pacific Northwest for several years, and am a big fan of Pho and Vietnamese restaurants in general. I've eaten at a lot of them, but I've finally found my favorite- Pho Dragon on 38th in the Lincoln District of Tacoma. It was recently reviewed as part of a general article about restaurants in the area... More

A very friendly place with good service and reasonably priced wonderful food. The fresh spring rolls are a must and then just ask your server what' good. S/he will figure out how familiar you are with Vietnamese cuisine and suggest something appropriate. And delicious.

This place is great! This is a family-owned restaurant, and you really feel welcomed by this group! At least one member of the family will come to your table and chat, give you a recommendation, and just make you (and your kids) feel at home. AND, the food is great, too!
