2nd visit to this quaint authentic Vietnamese restaurant. First visit was with friends for appetizers The Grilled Lemongrass Beef Skewers were the best-very tasty. Today's meal was lackluster and overpriced for its lack of meat. I ordered one of the chef's specialties, the Saigon Steak in Sizzling Pot. It looked and tasted good, but most of the bowl was rice...

Great place to meet for lunch if you or your companion works in or near the Pentagon. The restaurant has good food and a nice decor. The service is a bit slow and confused, which can be a problem for a time-constrained lunch, but other than that, no complaints. I had some stomach upset after each of my two lunches... More

I went to Saigon Saigon for lunch with my family. The service was very slow, and they got the order wrong (forgetting one of the dishes we ordered). I ordered a grilled beef papaya salad. It was too sweet, and the beef were little chips of beef instead of slices of grilled beef. My wife ordered pho, which was fine.... More

Had the pho. It hit the spot, but was a little short on the meat. It was tasty however, and I would return. They also had a lot of other selections (not simply a pho place).

Was interested in trying a new cuisine while traveling to Arlington recently. Service was prompt (restaurant was not busy early on a Saturday evening) and waiter recommended Pho as a traditional representative dishof Vietnam. The Pho was quite tasty and the portion quite large (I ordered a small portion) and reasonably priced. However, the service was just very basic, waiter... More

Went back for dinner one night with some friends. Next to having Pho, I also ordered the fried calamari and summer roll. While I thought the calamari's portion was small, the calamari tasted fresh and crispy. I like the summer roll and everything was on par of what I would expect. Again, the bonus of this place is that it's... More

Menu provides a good selection of well prepared and tasty meals. Service is excellent. Indoor ambiance is pleasant; there is outdoor dining in warmer weather.

This is a tiny new restaurant on the edges of a major shopping area that serves dishes from Vietnam. The cook is an artist and platters of nicely seasoned, spicy food arrive on beautiful serving dishes that look like pictures from a travel magazine. Diner or lunch becomes special. Enjoy eye-candy, tasty and satisfying dishes at a moderate price.

Food was so good we went two nights in a row! The vegetable spring rolls with vermicelli were excellent as was the chicken in spicy yellow cream sauce - not sure of the 'official, name. Service was friendly, professional and efficient. Decor was comfortable, clean and attractive. The restaurant was not busy but nor was anywhere around. Looking forward to... More
