Great little small place for Pho in Alexandria's West End. Food is always quick, fresh, and consistently good. Price is average to other Pho restaurants. They also have Pho takeout, but you'll have to do some assembly and microwaving of the meat once you get home. It's fairly easy to do. I've been going to this place for several years... More

Pho (and to a lesser extent Vietnamese food) is one of the most polarizing topics amongst hipsters, recent immigrants, grandmothers, and magazines. Are you a Northern style person, favoring subtly sweet broth? Are you a Southern style favoring bold, savory broth? Or maybe a Hue style spicy broth is right for you. Whatever your predilection, it is widely agreed that... More

The chicken breat was cooked tender and delicious. The noodles were tender and the vegetables were fresh and tasty.

This little strip mall Pho restaurant is perfect on price and exceptional on flavor. I've eaten here at least 3 times during business trips and I've never been disappointed. The food is fresh and prepared to order, wait staff is attentive and is more than happy to help you make a decision from their menu of authentic food.

Ate here for dinner with my family. We all ordered the crispy shrimp rolls, and small pho with flank, brisket, and skirt beef (P6). Having been here before we knew what to expect. The appetizer and entree were solid as usual. The meal was topped off with an iced Vietnamese coffee (#2). The service was attentive and the pricing average... More

We were on a long trip, and were looking for a quick dinner, and found Pho Viet instead of the usual fast food. What a treat! Delicious Pho, unusual add-on options, and fast service. Fast and delicious!

Worked with our food allergies - put things on the side. We ordered several different dishes to share and try. They were all good. My only complaint was the portion size of some of them was smaller than we would have liked. Pho was above average. Gui Cuon was good but missing something. Vermicelli was good but a little small.

Been here based on the positive reviews I read, but quite disappointed. To my opinion, what really makes a pho stand out is the broth. And the one that is offered here is not as tasteful as I had elsewhere. The summer rolls were OK (although there was a small bone splint in it) but the pho I convinced me... More

This little strip shopping center is a cornucopia of ethnic restaurants serving great food at reasonable prices. Pho Viet Flare is one of them. The pho is extraordinary. In fact we find their broth to be even better than the often-praised Pho 75. Bowls of hot, fragrant soup comes to the table quickly. One of the things we love about... More
