We love going here for the #73, Lemon grass chicken, spring roll and a wonderful side salad. Been going here for over 10 years and great food!

The spring rolls are the best I've ever eaten..I get a craving for them..Salad with the vermicelli bowl is OUTSTANDING..chicken and beef are always overcooked..Very tough..Service is good.. Waiters are attentive and friendly..

Didn't know what to expect, but the food was pretty good! Friendly staff! We shared the #50 plate, and it was a very fair portion for two

I crave the Pho at this restaurant. The portions are so huge that I always have two meals. One for lunch the next day or dinner that night. It's never been too crowded at weekday lunches. The flavors are divine. We've had almost all of them. Also you must try the chicken lettuce wrap appetizer. It could be a meal... More

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...

Have been going to Pho Thien An for years, sometimes multiple times a week, and have never had a bad experience.
