“Better Than the Usual Pho House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

We eat here frequently and get takeout too. Pho here is above average, always very fresh tasting. They also have a wide variety of other noodle and rice dishes, all of which are very good. They have one specialty item they excel at that I haven't seen in the other local Vietnamese places: Saigon Pancakes. These are a cross between a crepe and an omelette (they use rice flour only, for those who are concerned about glutens), the crepe itself is embedded with shrimp and pork (they will sub ingredients for you if you can't eat those, btw), and served with fresh pickles and veggies to stuff them with. They also make good satay here, and excellent fresh garden rolls. It's very clean and bright inside. They don't have a big staff, so if it's busy, sometimes the waitresses end up in the weeds, but it's manageable if you're polite about redirecting them. Excellent food, excellent value.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

Very average Vietnamese. If you want really great Pho, go to Pho Royal, less than a mile away.

“Best Pho in Leesburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

We eat here about 2 times a month and always get the Garden Rolls to start and the Pho for the meal. I make sure that I always have enough to bring home with me.

“sooo Tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2011

BEST pho hands down in town! everything we have eaten here (and we lived right down the street for almost a year) has been so good! The saigon pancakes, the Grilled Pork over vermicelli, and of course the Pho! We eat here at least once a week!
Don't judge by the outside, the food will blow you away!

“Yummy Vietnamese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

I visited here a couple times during my stay. During the week, there are some nice choices on the special lunch menu. I especially liked the garden roll, Vietnamese salad and pork served with steamed rice. My son's Vietnamese pancakes - excellent, too. They serve Pho, like most other Vietnamese restaurants, but it's nice to have a decent selection of other items.

The service was excellent and we will visit again. It has easy parking and a pleasant mirrored interior.
