a real mom and pop place - very warm and welcoming vibe. Even the busboys smile. The veggie spring rolls are fresh and really satisfying and the Pho is top notch. Always a good meal.

Hands down one of my favorite viet restaurants in Montgomery County, if not my favorite. They really can do nothing wrong. I've never had a single bad dish here and the prices are right. They even make the best thai iced bubble tea in the area and they're not a bubble tea place. The pho has ample amounts of meat and they put your raw eye of rounds on top, not mixed in like other gringo spots. The delicate broth is perfectly seasoned and clear, a sign of a good pho. The tomato rice is also very excellent and pairs well with their "maryland chicken" dish which I'm always ordering. And for about 9 dollars, you can get a bigggg bowl of egg noodle soup in a chicken broth with pickled veggies, sprouts, cilantro, ground pork, jalapenos, and maryland chicken with a dipping sauce- what's not to like? I can never finish the whole thing in one sitting!

This restaurant was new to me, although apparently it has been around for some time in different locations. Located in the Wheaton Triangle area, it looks like nothing special--clean with informal decor. The food, however, is quite varied, from phos and noodle dishes to grilled ones, all seemingly fresh and of very good quality. I also noted that many dishes can be made vegetarian upon request. I went with friends who have been there before and they said the food is consistently good. My spring rolls were among the best I've had, and the stir fried rice noodles with chicken, shrimp, fish cakes, bean sprouts and onions was excellent. The service was very attentive and accommodating. Carry-out an option.

This is an informal and comfortable restaurant on University Blvd., just off Georgia Avenue. There is free parking in front and in back. It's where Lucia's Italian Deli was for decades.

The food here is Vietnamese. They have excellent spring rolls, various meals with rice and noodles and the prices are very inexpensive. They have the friendliest staff and they make an effort to provide excellent service and great hospitality. It's a great neighborhood place but you can see how this restaurant will become more popular over time.
