As everyone has mentioned, this is a no frills restaurant. But a family run business with consistent taste and quality or they cld'nt attract the number of regular clients as was visible when we had our lunch there yesterday! Very delicious food! The appetizer, summer rolls with shrimp had a unique taste & the fried chicken wings were superb! The... More

My husband, two teen daughters, and I just had dinner here and had a wonderful meal. I agree with other reviewers about the no frills, but the food was delicious. My husband had beef pho with steak & flank, my daughters had chicken pho, and I had the vermicelli bowl with lime chicken. We all enjoyed our meals! I was... More

As other reviews have noted, this is a no frills restaurant but clean, comfortable and located in a shopping center that offers necessary retailing and services. It's a convenient place to stop in for lunch while doing errands in the Fairfax Circle area. We had pho as well as what the restaurant calls Vietnamese stew. The pho is excellent, with... More

I thought I found a hidden gem the other day when I stopped in and had their bun bo hue. It was spicy, aromatic and has lots of meaty flavor. I brought my friends in yesterday to get them to try this alternative to the typical pho. Imagine my dismay when the noodles that came out lacked the red sate... More

No frills restaurant with fast, friendly service. We were seated quickly, brought ice water and menus and had just enough time to peruse the choices. I had two experienced diners with me, so I didn't need any help from our waiter. Food came quickly, it was FRESH, and HOT! A plate of bean sprouts, jalapeno pepper slices, mint leaves and... More

No frills here but the pho is good and it's quick. Great broth, tender meat and good noodles. Service is efficient and the value is great, there aren't many places my family can get a healthy, hearty meal for less than 40. Best pho around

In the past 30 years I've eaten at cheap and expensive Vietnamese restaurants in places from Paris to British Columbia. If it's Pho you want, Pho Thang Long is the Best of Breed in Fairfax. The ambiance will be familiar to anyone who has eaten at the Pho 75 chain. Pho Thang Long's signature dish is as tasty as that... More

I got hungry after spending close to two hours at a nearby Microcenter, so I looked up nearby restaurants' ratings here and on Yelp and this place came out ahead of two or three others. Naturally, I gave it a chance. I ordered spring rolls, No. 1 Pho, and an iced coffee. Spring rolls with shrimp I enjoyed very much,... More

The beef stew with egg noodles is my favorite dish in that place. Unfortunately it only comes in a big size. Their Phos are also very good, and they come in different sizes.
