A group of friends had lunch there recently where we were taken care of by very friendly and knowledgeable wait staff who enjoyed telling us about the dishes we were ordering! The food was excellent, as was the atmosphere.

The atmosphere at Present was very welcoming and we were greeted by a friendly staff. The lunch menu started with soup and a nice salad with egg roll following a choice of several entrees. The food was nicely flavored and very tasty.

Description
Present Restaurant is home to a melting pot of tasty regional authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Most of the best Vietnamese food can be found at a humble-looking street stall and from the inside of a home kitchen. Present Restaurant is your guide to favorite Vietnamese foods in the Fairfax Co area. Enjoy a quiet dinner with friends with a glass of wine. Present restaurant offer an ambiance of tranquility with our indoor cascading pond that allows our guest to enjoy a quiet dinner with friends with a glass of wine. We also cater to special events and occasions. Surprise your quest with a catered and elaborate Vietnamese buffet.. Thank you to Mr. Tom Sietsema of the Washington Post for the kind review: Editorial Review 2009 Fall Dining Guide By Tom Sietsema Washington Post Staff Writer Plenty of Vietnamese restaurants serve green papaya salad. None that I've sampled makes a better impression than Present's. Freshly roasted nuts give the dish an edge, and so does a "bowl" of purple cabbage, although the crowning touch is lavished on the surface: matchsticks of rich liver instead of the usual beef jerky. Other Vietnamese restaurants are welcoming, but few more so than this place. Need a recommendation? Want to know more about an ingredient? The servers respond with enthusiasm and intelligence, and they make top-notch guides for novices in particular. I've eaten in this serene dining room at least half a dozen times now, yet I always find something new to appreciate.
