“The only veggie Pho in Seattle that hits the spot! A weekly favorite.”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

I love Than Brothers pho – not only do they have a veggie option (including veggie broth) that’s just fantastic, but there are 16 carnivorous choices for the brave. The small is enough for most hungry adults and beware the extra large – I had a friend order it once out of curiosity and the bowl was literally large enough to bathe a puppy in.

Each order comes with mung bean sprouts, jalapeno slices, limes, basil and a cream puff (which is AWESOME drenched in the chili oil). It’s possible to order the cream puffs en masse a few days ahead of an event if you want to be really nice to your friends. Sauces on each table include chili in oil, plum sauce and sriracha.

Service is super fast and the orders arrive within minutes (occasionally even in seconds), so this is a great choice if you’re starving and need food immediately. I wouldn’t ask for any special orders – they tend not to understand if you ask for a meal “without” onions for instance (it came with noodles and ONLY onions). Asking for “extra” of anything hasn’t ever been a problem though.

Finally – the price is astounding! Starting at $4.95 and ending at $6.95 – this is a great place to eat a warm, hearty meal when you’re starving… without breaking the bank.

“Quick service & great pho”
Reviewed March 20, 2011

If you're looking for a fancy atmosphere then this is the wrong place for you. But if you're wanting quick & fast service and low prices still.. this is the right place.

I've eaten Pho since I was a kid (used to get it home-made from scratch) but have been known to pop in to a pho shop nearby and warm up during cold Seattle winters.

They also provide some custard desserts before your meal which I like to nibble on. My fiance loves them and often eats mine as well.

Value is there and beware of the large bowls. I always order a small and am stuffed when I finish it. Great value for your money!
