Pho was good, fast food style, not for hang out

The food tastes quite good. It was served very quickly too. This appears to be quite a popular place during lunch time, lots of people waiting. The wait time isn't too bad, but there isn't really a good enough waiting area. People are asked to wait in front of the washroom as there is a bit more... read more

For pho lovers, this is a hidden gem! The broth is tasty. Been there a few times, never disappointed so far with the quality and quantity.

The service is pretty quick. Pho orders come out fast. The soup base is not overly heavy in seasoning like some other places. Their portions are also a good size, and it is one of the cheaper options in Calgary North. It's always busy, as it is a popular place, but turnover is pretty fast.

Not bad selections, and authentic taste. Crowded place, usually theres a queue but turnover is fast. Food gets serves fast too. Only downside is paying $2.75 for extra beef ball.. gets you only ONE ball after putting the pieces together.... maybe thats y its stated as BALL... lol...

At lunch time this place is full! If you order pho normally you will be served within 5 minutes! Taste is authentic Vietnamese. Price is well below their competitions.

After spending over a decade in Ontario I was fortunate enough to be exposed to Vietnamese food and let's just say they really set the bar high for quality and value in Toronto. Since coming to Calgary I searched high and low for truly good pho that reminded me of Ontario, but sadly, most are knock offs consisting of chicken... More

Our family of five lives in the NW and have pho 2-4 times each month. We've tried more than a dozen restaurants around Calgary and Pho Thanh is still the best; very tasty soup, generous portions of meat with their noodles and reasonable prices...what more can one ask for?

I've been Pho Thanh for years since recommended by my friend. It's one of my family's favorite. Clean and quick service, inexpensive and fresh made, the XL soup bowl is really huge, plus, free tea.

Great Pho place! Consistent quality and service. Fast service and fresh food. This place is open late, has a crazy Vietnamese drink assortment none of which I have had the guts to try yet.

I added this little restaurant because I think it has some of the best Pho in Calgary. Their House Special pho is huge, hot (in temperature), fragrant and delicious. It comes with basil, and two other herbs (which Very few other restaurants offer), as well as a little red pepper and a slice of lime. The broth darkens and becomes... More
