My kids love it here. The staff is friendly and the food is consistently good. One of my kids always gets the egg roll appetizer and a side of rice. My favorite thing to order is the bun thit nuong cha gio. The pho here is also mouth watering. Parking is limited, but don't let that deter you. Stop by and enjoy!

This restaurant is in a strip mall along San Pablo Avenue, Richmond, totally non descript, you'd never know it existed except by word of mouth (or TripAdvisor). The food here is very good for the price, which is why it never lacks for customers. Come here if you are cold and want a steaming hot bowl of Pho! Ahh, the broth is always tasty and authentic (unlike other "budget" Vietnamese, where the broth can taste like dishwater). Try the Shrimp & Papaya appetizer salad with minced peanuts. The sweet-sour-salty balance is always right and there is an interesting crisp vegetable that looks like a "penne" pasta that I don't know the name of. There is another ingredient, also of unknown origin due to my ignorance, that is crunchy and gives great texture to the salad, like a crouton. Yummy! Another good dish is the catfish claypot. The (bony) fish is in a caramelized sweet-salty sauce and is good for spooning over white rice. My favorite go-to when I'm in the East Bay and want something easy, cheap and non pizza.

after shopping for 2 hours, we are starving. new to the area, we were skeptical.

went in and the place was huge. furthermore, it was packed so that is a good sign.

we had combo plus spring rolls.

tasty soup....good portion.

I went to Huong Tra Restaurant with folks who are not very adventuresome eaters and all had a great meal at a great price. The shrimp dishes, especially, were notably good, and the spicy beef was appropriately spicy. It appeared that pho and Bahn mi are the most popular items on the menu. The service is great, the food came quickly and piping hot, which is important to one of our group. Plus, the restaurant is notably clean. We will definitely return when we find ourselves in the area again.

We have been to Huong Tra 30-40 times. The food is great, the selection is awesome, and the value is unbeatable. Whether you want Pho, a vermicelli dish, a rice dish, a salad, or a clay pot dish, you just can't go wrong. The Chicken with Chinese Mushrooms, Cubed Beef, Papaya Salad, Beef Chow Fun, Chicken Chow Fun, Pho (any one of them), Combination Rice Clay Pot Seafood & Chicken, Crispy Prawns with Ginger and Onion, Prawns with Coconut Curry are all incredibly tasty.
