Best Pho in Rockville?

Looking for what's best basically along 355 between Shady Gove Rd. and Edmonston. Pho 75, or is there another gem I should know about?

  1. Try Pho 75 on the "Hungerford Drive" stretch of Rt. 355.

    Best stuff going for many years.

    Oops... Recommended Pho 75 before really reading your request. Still, I think it's the best along Rt. 355. It's also next to China Bistro (aka"Mama's Dumplings" and a nice Asian bakery with an assortment of buns and cakes.

      I sometimes order dumplings at China Bistro and go next door to get pho and toss a few dumplings in the bowl. This is the perfect weather for just such a treat. Life is good in Rockville.

    2. Pho Nam is also good but not as good as Pho 75.

      1. Definitely Pho 75. Bring cash; no credit cards accepted.

        1. Thank you all - Pho 75 it is!!

          1. pho nam nam is very good and also has excellent banh mi.
            pho 75 is the original but imho, pho nam nam has better pho in a nicer cleaner environment

                Nevermind, found it. it's like 2 doors down from the old banh mi place used to be. I forget the name.

                  It is where Bali was but food is so much better and it is clean

                    Slight correction -- It's Pho Nom Nom, and it's in the same space where Ba Le used to be.

                    I went once shortly after the first opened and remembered their meat being higher quality than most other pho places, but their broth wasn't quite as good as 75's.

                      If you just want pho, Pho 75 is still the king in Rockville.

                      But if you want a more extensive menu, since 75 serves only pho, two appetizers, drinks and desserts, I think Pho & Rolls in the Rockville Town Center is better than Pho Nom Nom.
