You must be kidding. The restaurant was CLOSED. A sign in their window said they will open July 8th. So much for accuracy between business & internet. Needless to say we were very disappointed & inconvenienced.

My daughter and I both had the Pho and it was outstanding! The shrimp were good size and the broth was excellent! It was a perfect dish for a cold winter’s night. Service was excellent and we will definitely be back to sample the many dishes on the menu!

Top notch food. The menu has all the usual Viet fare but also a lot of unusual. Prices are fair service is efficient and food is great. Only a short ride from to Wolf Trap and Tyson’s. Tried the eggplant tilapia. Was wonderful.

What a pleasant surprise to find this little gem tucked away in the corner of a strip mall in Vienna. The pho was delicious. We’ll definitely drop by here again.

Really good food, really fast. Authentic pho cooked to your specifications. Allergies? No problem. My server was attentive and thoughtful in her recommendations.
So many choices, but try the spring rolls: jullienned veg rolled in a rice wrapper was light and a great treat for two.

The food and service were top notch! Warm towels delivered to the table to wash my hands? Wow! It's a fairly small place, so it can easily be noisy. We'll be back for the great food and service for sure.

Thanks to Open Table, we found this great new (for us) restaurant! We live in MD and my husband was flying into Dulles Airport. So we decided to eat in VA for a change. Viet Aroma lived up to the reviews on Open Table! We were greeted by a nice woman who knew who we were when we walked in. She asked if we were coming in from the airport. I had put a note on my reservation saying that we may be delayed because of the flight and that we would be there for sure unless we called so could they please hold our reservation. We ended up being early. She had a table reserved for us and we sat down. We started with the Rock n Roll Sampler. Delicious! Everything was fresh and hot. It is served with 3 dipping sauces that let you enhance the taste of each item. But I probably would have been fine if there was no sauce at all! I ordered the Bird Nest Stir Fry over crispy noodles and my husband ordered a Prawn dish. Both we excellent and again, everything seemed very fresh. Mine was mild (you could pick your spice level) and it was just right. I could taste the meat and vegetables and still enjoy the sauce. My husband enjoyed his very much as well. We would definitely eat there again. It is in the same shopping center as Jammin' Java where we have been many times, although never knew about Viet Aroma. The only minus about the place is that it isn't in Maryland!

We truly enjoyed our first visit to the Viet Aroma. Many interesting dishes on the menu. Spring rolls were light and crispy. My tilapia with eggplant in honey garlic sauce was delicious. Will go again.

This is a great find in Vienna. Viet Aroma offers quality food, great atmosphere and good prices. Would recommend their crispy spring rolls, Drunken Noodles, and Shaky Beef. All excellent dishes.

This was recommended by some friends as it is one of their favorite places to eat. We took a group of 8 and it was great. The service was fantastic and you felt like they wanted you there and appreciated you as a customer. I like spicy but since I wasn't familiar with the restaurant I went conservative. The food was very flavorful, but next time I will be trying something with more bite. Two others in the group ordered spicy dishes and they indicated they were excellent. We will be back.

We wanted to try neighborhood restaurants so went to this one to check it out. Food was good and plenty. We had shaky beef and quail dishes. Presentation of the food was great and food was tasty too. Service was adequate but nothing outstanding. Will return to try other dishes and also noodle soup. I wouldn't necessary go there for special occasion or anything like that but i would definitely return to try other dishes on the menu.

My wife and I discovered Viet Aroma last fall and have been back once and twice more with different friends. The food and service have consistently been very good. Our friends dining with us the last time there are native Vietnamese. They were very happy with their meals. My favorite has been the Red Snapper special. We hope others find Viet Aroma and will enjoy dining there, too.

We had a delicious Vietnamese lunch. Flavorful, well-seasoned dishes with the freshest ingredients. We will return. The only negative was they had the heat down prior to opening and it was so cold that we needed to keep our winter jackets on throughout most of meal.

We chose to eat here because it is in the same shopping center as Jammin Java. The menu selection is quite good and the food is interesting and very good. Our waitress was a little pushy about the menu. We just wanted a light dinner and she kept insisting we get the special. We split a lemon grass chicken and an order of summer rolls. It was plenty of food for 2 women and only cost $20.

It's a cute little place, but the music in the background did not match the cuisine. Not sure why they were playing Spanish music. A little authentic music could add to the atmosphere.

I had the spicy noodle soup. Can't remember the name but the broth was perfect. Vegetables Sooo fresh and shrimp delicious. We started with crispy spring rolls. They were not your avg spring rolls. Very crispy costing and not greasy at all. My husband had the rice paper rolls. You make them yourself with choice ingredients. He loved them. We will go bavk again, that's for sure!

Besides the "Aroma" everything tastes good too. We tried several specials of seafood and enjoyed them.
We had comfortable seating for our party of 7. Our server was super attentive and we enjoyed the meal which ended with some nice warm towels to clean our hands. We ordered way too much food because everything looked so good so we brought home the leftovers and were able to enjoy our dinner the next day too.

This was my first time at Viet Aroma. I was immediately put off by the "over zealous" exhibited by the waitress. She couldn't stop pestering me about ordering when I was not ready and was waiting for my friend and told her so. When we were ready to order wine, she brought a bottle of Malbec that was not the vintage indicated on the menu. I pointed it out to her.... I may have been over critical but I felt that she had no respect for personal space as she was getting too close for comfort although I am sure it was out of good intention. She interrupted us non stop with her comments etc..... I appreciate the attention but too much of a good thing can be too much! I did enjoy the food and so did my friend.

Excellent Vietnamese dining, offering a wide variety of dishes and preparations (i.e. not your typical Pho shop). We ordered 4 different styles of main dishes, and each was well presented and tasted great. The service was friendly and attentive. We look forward to visiting again.
