The pho tasted quite good overall. The water tastes old though and the chopsticks are plastic and too thick to easily use.

Not too bad and the space is nice. The broth was a little too thin and the tendon needed to be cooked longer.

We have been eating here for about 5 years. The food, service and prices are outstanding! Try the Vietnamese hot and sour soup or the Trasi dish -- if you like things spicy.

On the upper level of the new Silver Spring Center, Pho-Hiep Hoa has a diverse menu and reasonable food quality, but on this Tuesday midday it was a bit sleepy. Don't expect much in the way of genuinely special spice or real taste. On the other hand, my waiter was very friendly.

Too be fair, I haven't had a lot of pho in Maryland. But I had high hopes for this place and wasn't thrilled. We almost left when we sat down because the menu wasn't vegetarian friendly, but the people are really, really nice and it had great reviews so we took a gamble. The "spring rolls" are actually egg rolls,... More

We started going here after our health club workouts twice per week. The service is always excellent; the food is excellent.

Have only been for lunch, several times and each time, the pho did not disappoint. Quite authentic. I like that there are two size offerings, with the smaller bowl just the right size for lunch (or a mid-afternoon craving). The lunch deals are crazy - reasonably priced would be a grave understatement. The curries are almost as good as the... More

I was record hunting with my good friend in Silver Spring and he took me to this Vietnamese restaurant. It's one of about half a dozen restaurants in the little square next to the parking garage in SS. You find it on the 2nd floor. We decided to share a pair of roasted quails and I had Nam and Ve...

Although I can not report on the restaurant it self I can tell you about the pho!! It's close to work and we ordered take out and a buddy picked it up. He was impressed with the place, but I didn't personally see it? The pho came with all the veggies and meat all I had to was assemble it!!... More

Pho Hiep Hoa has several very good things going for it. It is located in the newly renovated Downtown Silver Springs. Even if you went to the restaurant sat down & did not like absolutely anything on their robust menu- still the trip would not be lost. Downtown Silver Springs is lined with a vast array of eateries from which... More
