We visited on a weekday around lunchtime. The parking for the small strip of businesses was surrounded by a small but crowded parking lot was small. The interior of the T. Ho appeared bright and clean, although the mix of Buddhists statues and Parisian paintings seemed eclectic. There was not wait and the sole waiter was friendly. The lighting in the restaurant was uneven, ranging from a bright overhead bulb to tables wrapped in corner shadows. The menu was relatively simple and biased toward more 'Oriental' fare, such as chicken or pork stir fry. There were a few Pho dishes, and egg rolls came in the pork and vegetable variety. We ordered stir fry. The wait for food was on the order of 10-15 minutes. Again, the waiter was courteous. The pork stir fry was mediocre, coated with a gravy and not the drier stir fry I prefer. Payment from the table was prompt and without hassle. We left, however, feeling hungry, and we went somewhere else for dessert.
In short, T. Ho has some commendable elements, but the overall experience of the restaurant will prevent my return.
THo is one of my fav restaurant is Knoxville. I'm from Vietnam, so i was really happy to find THo in the area. Not many Vietnamese entree in the menu (there are Chinese and some other kind), but they are really good. The sauce is not as sweet as other vietnamese restaurants in DC and I really like that.
A Pleasant Knoxville Surprise.
I am originally from Hawaii, relocating to Knoxville because of my career. I was pleasantly surprised when a co-worker told me about this restaurant! The cuisine is authentic, the fare is delicious, and the repast is filling! Kudos to the restaurants staff and management for an enjoyable experience!
