I go here fairly often because of the reasonable prices combined with the delicious food. But only go there if you like your food on the spicy side. Although there are some dishes that aren't too hot, and the menu marks spiciness well. I'm pretty sure you can ask for them to tone it down if you're sensitive about heat.... More

The sauce is great, summer roll is fantastic, the broth for the pho on the top of my list. The spicy beef salad, beware of the heat but it is very good.

Their Pho, appetizers, soups and entree's are great. Family run and very nice people. Great for takeout. This place needs a good cleaning and some paint inside but food is excellent.

I love pho noodles and this one is my favorite. The owner of this restaurant they are really nice and makes the best broth. I also recommend fresh spring rolls!

Horrible experience. They give preference to Vietnamese people. 3 tables before me got their order while we are waiting for water and these tables filled before my eyes. After 45 minutes of wait, both of us got different dishes than what we've ordered. Finally we left without eating anything. The guy is arguing that I lied about my order. He... More

Ok, I was so happy to find this place, but I have to admit, I'm never terribly impressed with any Vietnamese restaurants after working in the Richmond to Northern Virginia area where there are many fantastic Vietnamese restaurants. With that said, this was not what I would say was disappointing, but lacking in several areas. I asked if they served... More

I've never visited South East Asia, but... Minh Hai serves an awesome Pho, with meltingly tender tendons if you care. I don't think it's on the menu, but they will prepare a killer platter of thinly sliced raw beef and lemons. Your food will not arrive at your table quickly, but it is worth the wait.

I used to go to this location when it was Haruki's Japanese restaurant. That was a long time ago and Haruki now has at least two fine restaurants at other locations. After enjoying Japanese cuisine for a long time, I am now learning to enjoy Vietnamese food at Minh Hai. I try a different dish each time and have enjoyed... More

I came here with a buddy of mine for lunch one day. I like that its b.y.o.b. There around enough places like that around. It seemed very traditional which I liked very much. The waitress did mess up both my bubble tea order and my friends pho noodle soup order. The soup was delicious though. As for the ambience, it... More

We were looking for something different to try, and definitely not disappointed in this! The decor is simple (but remember it being redone at some point). As said in a previous post, it is family run, and you can see the pride they take in their food. It is made fresh, so expect a bit of a wait from the... More
