Really a special place. Very courteous greeting and super clean appearance. These folks take pride in carefully preparing every meal. Beautifully presented and excellent service from start to finish. Great touches including a scented hot wet towel to freshen your hands and face after eating. Wish I lived nearby😢

We ordered seafood Pho and the grilled lemongrass chicken with appetizers. It was very tasty, fresh and truly qualifies as Vietnamese comfort food. One of the best Vietnamese places around.

Family dinner on a chilly Friday night. Great appetizers to start - crispy rolls, beef spring rolls, scallops/squid superb with three sauces on the side. Main dishes outstanding - lemon grass beef with rice noodles (would have liked MORE beef). Great beef pho - omg - big bowl $9 (wow) a little salty but great Thai basil on side -... More

Nam-Vietnam Pho 79 is an excellent family owned restaurant with exceptional food and courteous and personable waitstaff. It has been a bastion of authentic Vietnamese cuisine for decades. I very highly recommend their Pho (soups) and their crispy spring rolls. Their marinated pork, rice noodles and salad combines into a wonderful lunch or dinner. Over the years I have dined... More

Good food and good service. Next to Clarendon metro. I was very happy with my meal. I do like A Vietnamese Sampler consisting of one crispy roll, one shrimp garden roll, one shrimp toast, one crispy vegetarian roll and lemongrass beef. An ideal combination of appetizers for those that can’t decide or just want a little bit of everything.

I had the grilled salmon after an appetizer of two delicious summer rolls with peanut sauce and some fried squid and scallops. Very good meal, with deliciously crispy, caramelized grilled fish and reasonable prices. The service was also very good, with servers maintaining very good attention to all diners.

We had called around to a number of Vietnamese restaurants in Arlington to see if they had Vegetarian Broth, with no luck. I walked by with a friend of mine and we popped in and low and behold, Nam-Viet Pho 79 did! Not only did they have the Vegetarian Broth Pho, it was delicious. I am excited to come back... More

We all ordered the same thing....Buddha's Delight....one was ordered spicy....mine. The dishes came out at the same time, and although the food looked good, it was kind of okay...not a lot of flavor and the "spicy" part of my food was some sliced jalapeno peppers stir fried into my dish. Not exactly the best food I've had and for the... More
