I really enjoy the Viet House-I am somewhat of a regular and enjoy the service, the food and the diverse clientele that frequents this place. I almost always order the Pho with the thin sliced beef-the beef is served raw and then dunked in the hot Pho, which cooks it in about 30 seconds. Delicious, inexpensive, and always a great... More

Back at my favorite neighborhood Pho restaurant. I had the beef brisket, soft tendon and skirt steak Pho. Was delicious as usual! I can't say enough for the Pho here. The staff is polite and quick. I will be back again and again! Cheers!

A simple and straight to the point pho house. A must visit and you won't be disappointed. I always order the vegetarian pho which includes tofu and TVP-(texturized vegetable protein) I could actually sip on the broth all day without anything else added. It a diviNE combustion of flavor that deserves praise. The service is quick and in expensive.

I live around the corner from this location and I eat here once or twice a week! Literally the best, they are so nice, and it is so tasty. I bring friends here pretty often and everyone is always pleased with the food and service. It is a casual little place to eat, fast service, and reasonable prices.

Ambiance for a restaurant has never been a top priority for PHO restaurants and this is no exception. Very plain decor in a small strip mall off Rt1 in south Alexandria but... great soup and noodles. Very clean very fast and cheap for the amount of food you receive. PHO, Summer rolls, bun all great tasting. A couple can leave... More

A favorite spot of relatives living in the area, we went to this place for dinner. The pho soup was piping hot and tasted delicious. The service was quick and friendly. We enjoyed our dinner outing.

Wow! I was surprised that their service was so fast during the busy lunch hour. My friend and I loved the food and service! We recommend it for an authentic Vietnamese meal!

Great authentic Vietnamese noodle dishes. They were also good at accommodating our needs as our son is a picky eater. This restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel which was convenient. Prices were reasonable.

There is a dripping condenser (noticed by the stain in the ceiling) that should be avoided when seating. If there are empty seats (there were plenty) then there is no excuse to seat a customer at that location and they could easily move the table anyway. It's a health violation. When somebody gets Legionnaire's Disease, then maybe they will care.... More

Although some Pho connoisseurs claim Pho 75 is the best around I think Viet House's pho is every bit as good, plus it's much closer to home. So far I've only had their Pho so I can't comment on the rest of their menu but considering that I've never seen the place empty of customers they must be doing something... More
