“A very good choice in all respects.”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The pho here is quite good: broth, meats, noodles and toppings are all done well. The restaurant is clean and somewhat comfortable and the service beats almost every other pho place. Fried egg rolls are hot and tasty, too. Pho 495 is easily better than Pho Xe Lua and Pho 75 -- yes, it's true!

I'll reserve 5 stars for that undiscovered place that has a richer broth and even higher quality meats, but until then, I'll keep coming here or to Pho VN One, a close second.

“Great Pho! Convenient Location”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is probably one of the better Pho places in the Northern Virginia area, and I've pretty much eaten at all of them. Since they are right around the corner from where I live, I come here and eat every week. They provide plenty of meat (unlike other places) and it doesn't get packed like other places (Pho 75 in Arlington).

“Finally, I don't have to drive to Eden Center to get good Vietnamese food”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Great food right around the corner. I went into nearby places that claim to be Pho restaurants but...not really. Yuk! This place is great and family owned.

“Good pho, spartan atmosphere”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The food is excellent and a great value. Furnishings are basic, and the restaurant is usually too hot or too cold (depending on the outside temp). No separate kid menu, though the regular menu is kid friendly.

“And again, not disappointed!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Had my favourite again, the seafood pho, but this time the shredded pork rolls as starter. And also this time, I was really not disappointed! Fresh veggies, good broth and full of flavour. All at great prices. The staff at the front desk could be a little friendlier however.
