We took a friend to Vietnam 1 at his suggestion -- some friend. The appetizers arrived to the table and were barely warmed through. It didn't matter much because the food was uninspired. Same could be said for the entrees. It didn't make sense that the service was slow -- there was only one other family in the restaurant at... More

I have been to Vietnam One at least 20 times over the past 5 years. The food is always fresh and prepared just right. The Garden Rolls are wonderful and the Pho is excellent. The rice noodle bowls topped with grilled meats are all very good too. My favorite dish is the grilled catfish served with rice noodles, vegetables and... More

We have been eating here for several years...mostly take out. The food is wonderful! The beef pho is so rich and comforting. Spring rolls and fried rice make a full meal. Wonderful food at a great price!

This place is my go to Vietnamese place ever since Mekong got crazy busy and their food started suffering a bit. The pho is MUCH better than Mekong. This place is good for a quick meal.

A friend and I have lunch here at least once a month and sometimes twice a month. We are seated quickly, our orders are taken quickly. The food is good and fresh. I get the Lemon Grass Stir Fry with Shrimp every time, with the steamed spring rolls. The Stir fry comes hot and crisp. We have never had a... More

I had the lemongrass chicken with rice paper; my wife had the asparagus with chicken and shrimp. Both had superb flavor, texture, and they were large portions. We were the only couple speaking English (hmmmm...this must be a local hangout, which is always a good sign...), but we had no problem ordering, and the staff is very nice. Two full... More

Excellent noodles, first time here but won't be my last. I love soup and noodles so I could come here every day. To bad it's on the other side of Richmond.

Stopped by for lunch....lots of regulars. Delicious spring rolls and crispy rolls. I had the vermicelli with chicken, pork, and shrimp. Served with lettuce, bean sprouts and other fresh vegetables and herbs. I would certainly come back here.

I love Vietnamese food and have eaten at most in Richmond and keep coming back here. It's cheaper than most others and much better flavors than others. Inside is crowded and has more of a lunch time scene but don't let that stop you. Go and enjoy! I do all the time.
