Went with two friends for the 1st time to try this out. The manager was a great host very attentive when needed & friendly as well. Food was delicious, I’m also Indian so when i asked for spicy i thought it would be “American spicy”but it was the right spicy to enjoy all the flavors with a good heat Definitely telling my mom and others about this spot

Service was terrific… first time there and asked the server to select 2 lamb dishes…both were delicious. We started with the scallops app and those were perfectly cooked and tasty…will definitely come back.

About the restaurant
Open Mon/Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun, closed Tues/Wed. Muoi Tieu is a cozy family-run Vietnamese restaurant and market in the heart of Takoma Park, Maryland, with a small but carefully curated menu that offers a combination of popular Vietnamese dishes (e.g., pho, spring rolls) and less common home-style dishes (e.g., braised pork belly, pan-fried fish with ginger nuoc cham) with plenty of gluten-free and vegan options. Our small market also offers a variety of common Vietnamese condiments, pantry items, and Asian snacks. Like our name, which means "salt and pepper" in Vietnamese, our concept is simple: we want to bring classic, savory Vietnamese food to our community.

Another great dinner at PLANTA! July specials were fun and tasty: peachy Palmer could be a bit sweeter or have more lemonade though & s’more pie was the perfect size and flavorful. Happy hour fire cracker wings and Nashville hot bao buns were also a great treat, might be worth adding to the main menu! Mushroom bao were fantastic as always. Vodka pizza is good, but missing something, maybe a texture or something because it is really all sauce. Flavors are great, but it’s very soft. Carbonara yummy as ever 10/10. Biggest positive of the night? Our server Miles. He was kind, informative and showed he really cared about making our experience enjoyable. Kuddos to you Miles, we will of course be back thanks to you!

My first time. Service was excellent starting with the greeting at the door. Food was very good and had nutrition/calories info on menu to help make healthy choices. The noise was average, not because the restaurant was full, it wasn't, but due to industrial design with high ceilings...but my friend and I were able to hear one another and we enjoyed our experience. We'll be going back.

About the restaurant
"I am proud to present our rendition of authentic dishes from India to the National Harbor. Here you will find many classics and fusions all presented in a modern fashion. My goal is to bring traditional Indian meals that were a large part of my childhood and share them with the world.

I spent my life perfecting my technique at the Taj Coromandel in Chennai where I served countless guests day in and day out. The dishes I present to you today are my proudest creations, in which I hope you will enjoy every bite.


From street food to delicacies reserved only for royals, I am overjoyed to present my recipes to you at this humble restaurant. I strive to offer only the finest presentation with the finest ingredients."
