“This is probably one of the BEST places in the NoVa region for Banh Cuon (Vietnamese rice crepes). I’m a transplant from the Bay Area, and this place is comparable to some of the best Viet restaurants out in San Jose, CA.” -Sharon L.
“I love their banh cuon, which is Vietnamese steamed rice crepe stuffed w/ stuffing of your choice such as minced pork, shrimp, onion. The Bun Rieu is pretty tasty but usually, I go w/ the shrimp version. It’s tomato-based broth with rice noodles, paired w/ a bunch of fresh beansprouts, mint/basil leaves, and finely chopped cabbage.” -Jeannie L.
“After wandering around for 20min looking for an atm (located in the supermarket), I trekked all the way back here to try their Bun Rieu, crab meat, shrimp & conch noodle soup. It came out piping hot and looked oishisoooo! Just like back in Vietnam. The shrimps were so tender and cooked just right.” -Nam H.
