I always order # 32 Rice Noodle Pho with beef broth. Wide selection, great appetizers, and authentic customer service. This place is busy during lunch on a regular basis, but that's a great sign of a great place. The seating is a bit older and could use an upgrade, aside from that item everything else just perfect.

Continuing on my quest to find a good pho place in San Antonio, but this was not it. The menu was all in English, so that made it suspect right off. The pho here, as at Pho An, was more expensive than a typical pho place but the portion was fairly large. They had a wider selection of pho too,... More

I went here with two others for lunch. They have an extensive menu, but none of us ordered the Pho, so this revue is "incomplete". The Hot & Sour soup and Egg Drop soup were average (at best), and I would not reorder. The Spring Rolls were very good. The Pad Thai, Orange Chicken and Shrimp Fried Rice were just... More

The menu is large enough to test your will power to makeup your mind on what to eat. Being there after normal lunch time get the best service. Food came out quick and was what was ordered. Portions are enough to share ortakehome to eat later.

I really enjoyed the food here, awesome Thai for what it is worth, but there are consistency issues. Been here 2 separate times, the first was average service, and very fast paced, like they were pushing you out in less than 30 minutes, The second time we got sat a table that looked like it was not wiped properly, and...

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
