Today, I purchased #14 Xtra Large to go because I was hungry and late lunch. I took me awhile to reheat the booth in a small microwave at work. When I started putting stuff into the bowl, I saw a slice of limes that was already used. See the picture. I was very disappointed. They must have been collecting scraps from other customers' plates. I've been suspecting this for a very long time until today it became a reality. I felt no use to complain to them. So, I ended up eating the pho since I was too hungry.

Bad. Having had many a good pho, we went here because they do vegetarian. Hey, it's by Green Lake, cool! I left with a imild headache coming on, I think from MSG, not sure. My wife and I vowed to never return. Only highly rated because ""Hey, it's by Green Lake, cool!""
Try Viet Ahn by the space needle, really good.

Hard not to love this place!

I was surprised to find that I didn't already have a review for this place as I thought I'd reviewed everywhere I typically go. This is a standard place that I'll go at least once a week! I don't always go to this one on Aurora, up by Seattle Kung Fu Club and Stupid Prices, but I was actually there on Monday. It's not my fave, out of all of the Than Brothers, but it's still good! I typically go to either the Redmond location, the Edmonds one (I live right next to it!), or the one on the Ave. in the U-Dist., but this place is fantastic! Huge portions of delicious Pho at amazing prices, all served with a cream puff that is such a delicate tasty treat! It's not my most favorite Pho ever, but it's def the place I frequent the most and I love it! Service is what it is and it's not horrible. I can't believe people have to wait when they order, but I don't need to look at the menu so I order when they bring out the cream puffs, water, sprouts, and such.

This is def a Seattle staple and deserves to be on the top of the Cheap Eats category!

Creams Puffs Are a Plus

My husband and I both love Pho - minus the onions and cilantro. Although we ordered our to-go orders that way, both came with both of these items. (There's an extra charge for to-go orders.) Someone demanded our order the minute we walked in (before even viewing the menu). Once we had had a chance to look the menu over it took several minutes before someone returned to take our order. The pho was ok - generous in size, but I've had better and the onions and cilantro were a disappointed. The cream puffs were delicious and helped to sooth the bad taste the aforementioned items left.

Average Pho

The pho here is ok, but really potent and a bit on the salty side. I go to pho places all around the city, but don't go here because although the food is ok, the service is especially not friendly, and the restaurant is dirty, humid and -- DIRTY.

Red Lights = Don't go

This is a poorly ventilated space lit with dim red lanterns all-in-all, quite seedy-looking. In addition, service here was much slower than at the other locations: nearly 5 minutes before I got a table, then 5 minutes more before anyone came to take my order. The place wasnt even half full! The pho seemed fine, though, but I couldnt actually see it very well in the low, red (eew) light. Paying my bill was yet another hassle; I waited at the counter for 10 minutes before I could get someone who knew how to work the cash register.
Every order of pho comes with complementary bean sprouts, basil, jalape?o, lime, and cream puff. Expect to pay $5-8/person, with tax, but I suggest you save yourself the time and money by going to a different TBP location instead, preferably the one in Edmonds.

Bargin Food!

For under $5.00 you get a HUGE bowl of very yummy Pho, a plate of sprouts, cilantro, sliced hot pepper, limes, and a cream puff that melts in your mouth. Service is amazingly fast, fast, fast!
Best bargin in seattle, and they have another store on Broadway on Capitol Hill.

Best Pho in Seattle

I am writing a review for this location and the Capitol hill location. I must note that the Than Brothers in the University District DOESN'T have veggie Pho. The price here is so great! You get a bowl of soup that would feed an army for $4.50. I'm an average sized girl and can barely take down a small!

If you've never had Pho you don't know what you missing! They bring you a bowl with broth, mushrooms, tofu, onions, and noodles. Then on the side they bring you a plate with veggies which you add to your liking. The cream puffs are NOT vegan. Overall this is such a fun dinner experience, this would be a great place to bring your date before heading to the bars on capitol hill. Try the lemonade!
