    House pho and crispy rolls are sublime. Oh, and a 33 beer when they have them. It's the perfect meal

    This might be the best Vietnamese place I have ever eaten. They even have kid's portions off the menu. They do charge extra for to-go containers.

    Vegan sandwich is very good but may not be filling on its own. It doesn't come with rice...just the sandwich.

    Can't go wrong with any of the Pho varieties! The Shrimp lotus salad is the bomb too! They have a large beverage selection from bubble teas to iced Vietnamese coffees to ice cold brewskies. Love.

    That's the longest I've waited for a sandwich, although talking to others, it's normally zippy. [shrug]

    Great pho! Great location! Terrible for groups of 4+... They will not reserve tables. Small group dine-in and take-out are great!

    $5.50 bahn mi is great, but $10 minimum for credit card. Just FYI.

    The only Vietnamese restaurant worth going to (if not the only one in the area) in Old Town Alexandria. They have solid classic banh mi sandwiches that run out usually by dinner time!

    I don't live in Old Town, but I've certainly gone out of my way to get their banh mi. Seriously, some of the best in the DC-area (yes - even better than from the Falls Church / Seven Corners area).

    We lived adjacent to a Vietnamese neighborhood in Cali and became spoiled with good food. Couldn't find comparable quality until now. The pho is legit.

    Really cute and trendy place in Old Town! I'm pretty picky when it comes to pho, but the pho tai here is delicious. The broth is savory, but doesn't leave me with that bad MSG feeling.

    Imperial Spring Roll was delicious. Crispy outer! Pho was up to par, broth was flavorful and meats were tender. Waiter sucked and messed up my order and couldn't even pronounce pho properly.

    Good food but do NOT expect timely service at all!!!! Seems like they can only handle one table at a time. Seems like the owner doesn't even know how to work the cash register.
