This Pho restaurant and all the others on the U Ave cater to hungry, poor students. The broth is watered down and they put a ton of cheap rice noodle with little meat. Good if you...

Would give 5 stars if service was better 6/20/2010

The veggie pho was great - loaded with fried tofu and mushrooms, fragrant, and just slightly sweet. The beef pho was very good too, according to my husband. And, of course, the famous cream puffs did not disappoint - fresh and light, as always, and the perfect finish to the meal. However, the service could use some improvement. I'm not asking for smiles and friendliness - I understand that these things are not necessarily a part of restaurant culture in some parts of the world, and that's fine with me as long as the servers are not outright rude. I'm talking about things like not waiting for customers to ask for something twice before bringing it out, or figuring out a way to take credit/debit card payments when your card machine breaks down (couldn't they write down the card numbers and then charge the cards later?), or at least posting a sign on the door saying ""sorry, cash only - card reader is broken tonight."" Instead, we only discovered that the card reader wasn't working when we went to the register to pay the bill. Luckily, the ATM - our bank's ATM, which was a plus - was nearby, but an advance warning would have been appreciated. Note: this review is for the U-District location Pros: good food, good value Cons: service could use improvement more

wut a service 4/26/2008

We actually have been there several times, because of its cheap price. But the service was horrible. Also If u look into the water ""carefully"" u will find it more horrible!!. Pros: cheap Cons: poor service more

Affordable, fast, good quality 1/15/2007

The title sums it up. I eat here regularly, and like many restaurants in the U District the atmosphere isn't the main attraction. But who cares when a couple can dine here for around $10! Fast service, good cuts of meat (especially for the price), and free cream puffs of course :) Highly recommended. Pros: Fast, cheap, great value Cons: None really, though it's not great for dates or kids. more

Decent Pho 11/16/2006

I tried pho here for the first time with a friend who raved about it. The service was fast. I had beef pho..I thought that it was ok. I don't know if Im too much a pho person. However, I liked their cream puffs...they were really good. Pros: Good cream puffs more

Pretty Good 10/17/2006

Ive eatten here a couple times and it has been alright, nothing special. I do see crouds of people in here during busy hours on the weekends. service is quick, but the meat they use is not very good. I dont recommend the meatball pho, but it was good overall. It also in kind of inconvenient that they dont take credit cards. Pros: quick, service Cons: meat, no credit cards more

The best deal in town 9/17/2006

Ok, I LOVE Than Brothers. Sure, it's not the most authentic pho and you can get much better of the real stuff at 12th and Jackson, but this spot has four great things going for it: 1) Veggie pho, which I guess is a sacrilege to the real thing but it's oh-so-tasty and comes with tofu, good if you aren't feeling all meat-y, 2) in the neighborhoods, i.e. when I lived on Capitol Hill it was two blocks away, now it's on the Ave, on Aurora, in Ballard, everywhere! 3) You can get a complete meal for $4, and 4) FREE CREAM PUFFS with every order. Enough said. Pros: Very cheap, lightning-fast service, tasty meals Cons: Absolutely zero ambience, not "authentic" more

Student Pho 9/14/2006

This Pho restaurant and all the others on the U Ave cater to hungry, poor students. The broth is watered down and they put a ton of cheap rice noodle with little meat. Good if your looking for quantity NOT quality. I am Vietnamese and this is bad Pho, but good if your planning spending the change you dug up around the dorm to fill your stomach. more

Best Lunch in the U-District 9/1/2006

You go in, say the number and size of the pho you want, and in a minute you have a steaming delicious meal that makes you feel wonderful. I always get the number 9--3 kinds of ""normal"" meat without any of the native specialties. And to top it all off, a free delicious creampuff! more
