Any Killer Vietnamese in Queens?

I'm in Flushing and wondering where the best Vietnamese restaurant is, Flushing or otherwise...

  1. There is no killer Vietnamese in queens. Bunker in ridgewood has some decent dishes. Pho Bang in Elmhurst is also ok.

    1. There are others: Pho, Pho Bang, and my favorite (because of parking availability). Mekong. Two others exist Pho 66 and another one , both on Bell Blvd. The better ones are in Flushing. Oh, yes, there was also a Pho Bac either in Elmhurst or Flushing.

      1. There is no killer vietnamese anywhere in the 5 boroughs unfortunately

            You are better off making a stop at the Eden Center in Falls Church next time you are in the DMV. In Flushing try the place at Main and Kissena Blvd

              The next time I renew my NY drivers license in Virginia I'll check that out.

                  OP inquired about killer vietnamese in queens. None to speak of, but 250 miles down Interstate 95 is a dream like vietnamese gastronomic paradise.

                    Also, for those thinking DMV = Department of Motor Vehicles, DMV also = District-Maryland-Virginia, as in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

                      For Queens I've only been to Pho Bang and its decent.

                      I've been to A few places in Northern VA but nothing was that much better than NYC fare. There's killer Vietnamese food that I've had in Southern California, New Orleans and Vietnam but its not really relevant.

                        Next time make a beeline to Eden Center

                          I'm in Northern Virginia and DC 4-5 times a year. Which restaurant do you recommend?

                          1. re: MVNYC

                            I like Huong Viet and Hai Duong. Nhu Lan Sandwich shop for a semi-hidden nostalgic banh mi

                Hi Budcar, if you have a car, try Bunker if you haven't already.

            2. I like Pho Bac in the Broadway Mall in Elmurst, better than Pho Bac. tried Bunker once. None are as good as the places on Mulberry St, Pho Viet huang and Xiao something or other....forget the name.
