“Good food, small portion, strange service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

This place is the most decent Vietnamese restaurant in the Chantilly, VA area aside from the Eden Center in Falls Church, VA. The food is good, but the portion is small. I am barely satisfied after eating a meal here. Service is great if the twin sisters serve you. Beware of the young Vietnamese server guy, he is rude and has a very strange attitude. Other than that, I would have given this restaurant 5 stars if the portion is a wee-bit larger.

“Best Vietnamese food I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I've been to Hanoi and Saigon. I also have a favorite Vietnamese restaurant in my home area. But, while visiting the Washington, D.C. area I dined at Viet Crystal. This place is fantastic! The service was impeccable, the food fantastic, and the prices reasonable. I had the Shrimp Curry, and it was perfectly spiced -- delicious!

“Best Vietnamese food I've had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I have a favorite Vietnamese restaurant in my home area, but while visiting the Washington, D.C. area I gave Viet Crystal a try. In short, it was fantastic! I had Shrimp Curry, and it was hot, perfectly spiced, and quite enjoyable. The restaurant is quiet and comfortable. I highly recommend this one.

“Love their garlic chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2011

I can't really tell you about any other dish because I'm addicted to the chicken and garlic. I love eating it there or taking it home. Always excellent.
