This fine Vietnamese restaurant is located in a shopping center that is filled with Vietnamese businesses, including several other restaurants. This restaurant stands out from all of the others due to the fact that in the window were "Best Bargain Restaurant" awards from the local area Washingtonian magazine - 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. With that in mind, we decided to go in and try it for lunch - it turned out o be a great decision! The portions were large, well prepared, and very authentic. The food is clearly prepared for native Vietnames tastes, and not not specially designed for "American" likes. The result is that not only is the price and service good, but the food is exactly what it should be! Without hesitation I will go back, and will reccomend Huong Viet to any one who enjoys authentic Asian foods.
