“Vietnam Mall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is an oasis for the Vietnamese business community: groceries, restaurants, jewelry stores, hair salon, etc. Do not limit your visit to the exterior stores that you see from the parking lot, go inside the mall and you will find a lot of interesting stores and restaurants. My favorite is the Than Soh, this place sells a lot of soy products: soft tofu, fried tofu and even BBQ tofu (that has the texture of chicken, this is the only way I can get my son to eat tofu). Eden Center is a good place to spend an afternoon to browse around while enjoying a bubble tea and then have an early dinner in one of the restaurants.

“Little Vietnam in DC area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is a big complex of restaurants, shops, delis and grocery store in Falls Church. It's not far from DC by car but it's a bit difficult to reach through public transportation.
It's really authentic Vietnamese in every sense. The small grocery store (a bigger one is coming towards the end of 2013), for example is full of vegetables you'll have difficulty recognizing.
It's a very interesting, authentic experience. Come with an open mind to sample the real experience of Vietnam. Who knew you could find a piece of Vietnam so close to DC, the only thing missing are the motorbikes!

“One of my favorite places in N VA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Eden is a great place to experience Vietnamese culture. From Pho, Pandan Rice, and Bubble Tea to 22kt gold. There's always something new to discover and take home. Try Rice Paper restaurant for good Pho. Try the green and orange sweet sticky rice and a Taro smoothie.

We stopped in to look around. Lots of bakeries and lots of restaurants! Competition makes it that you can get a good deal...

“a must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

If you are at all curious about Vietnamese culture, this is a must see destination. The shops/restaurants are all Vietnamese. The food is great, and the groceries sell all the Asian food you might find in Vietnam. The Pho (soup) is very good. The jewelry stores sell 18k gold. Parking is a challenge at times. The whole center was converted from an existing shopping center. Although most of the shoppers are Vietnamese, the locals also find this place as a good place for a meal and a change from the ordinary.
