I moved a year ago to San Antonio and I LOVE Pho Soup. Since then I've been trying to find a great place with a great Pho soup, Tapioca Tea and a good Chinese menu for the husband. Everything was very fresh and smelled so good. We started with some Cheese Ragoons which were perfect, just what my husband wanted.... More

Not bad, pretty good. Spring rolls were fresh and tasty. Bun is served cold, which is okay, but I prefer it hot. We shared the vegetarian (tofu) dish and the flavors were nice, noodles were cooked well. Tofu was on the mild side. Service was prompt and friendly. Overall an "okay" dining experience, just no "wow" factor. We are new... More

This is not a chain and they do not go the buffet route, but you know you will get very fresh ingredients at a fair price. The menu is in Thai and English with photos and good descriptions. And it is located right across the street (Rector) from North Star Mall - a good location with lots of free easy... More

I love Pho I might have been abel to give it a better review but I have had GREAT Pho so I spoiled in other post from me you'll see those places(Fl). Anyway, Pho was good though. Very large bowl so order the regular size. Meat was good with clean taste of broth, people can ruin Pho with broth so... More

Stuck at a hotel for the weekend with nothing to do, I ordered up some food from Pho Thien An and was pleasantly surprised. It was pretty good, not the best but very satisfying. The soup was large and tasty. But the spring rolls were in egg roll wrappers which makes them way larger than they’re supposed to be. Not... More

I was sequestered at the North Star Mall by LensCrafters who couldn't get my one hour glasses done in an hour, so I walked to Pho Thien An for lunch. Now, I am a newbie to Vietnamese cuisine but I have fallen in love! I got the chicken pho and it was huge and delicious! It was so filling with... More

After traveling to Hanoi a few years back, the need for a great Pho (pronounced: Phaw, if you say: fo, it means "street"...something I quickly learned in Hanoi), the typical Vietnamese breakfast broth, was a necessity. I never thought that living in South Texas I would be able to enjoy anything close to the real deal. However, to my great... More

Ok. I've been lucky enough to have been around the world and been eating pho for half my life. I have been to pho all over the west coast from Vancouver to LA/Hollywood and, of course, all over TX. Pho Thien An is the best pho I've had in this city (San Antonio) by a good nautical mile. Its worth... More
