Their veggie pho comes with tofu, mushrooms and a couple of types of onions. The chicken pho is the same without the tofu and mushrooms. The broths are either beef or veggie bro...

Than Brothers-West Seattle 3/28/2006

Simple, satisfying and always delicious. This place is faster than fast food, cheap and always hits the spot. The service is non existent and I have to say I like it that way. Never before (or since for that matter) have I seen a waiter stay on his cell phone even while taking a table's order...I salute you captain of customer service! I have had the veggie, chicken and meatball pho and each one was delicious. more

Than Brothers is the home base for Pho 3/28/2006

Here ye, here ye: Pho is cheap, easy, and should be relatively predictable. While I'm finally trying to branch out and experience all that the Vietnamese restaurant world has to offer, I still need a safe haven home base to come back to. For me (and probably most of Seattle), that's Than Brothers. It doesn't help that there seems to be a location in virtually every neighborhood in the greater Seattle area, including some of the suburbs. It's quick and probably your cheapest option for a filling meal. Of course, there's the cream puff conflict. I just don't want to eat the cream puff, ok? My gag reflex puts in an appearance the moment I get the first 'more cream than puff' bite (if you can call chugging cream a “bite”) so I avoid the dessert all together. And yes, I believe it's a dessert. Despite being served before your meal, their website directly states that it is for dessert! Well, actually they say it is for desert but I think you get the point. Enjoy the cheap pho! Enjoy the cream puff as well, if you're so inclined. more

Eat Than Brothers' pho when you're chilled, sick, or hung over 2/21/2006

I always say that if I was ever homeless, I'd eat here exclusively because the bowls are huge, cheap, and nutritious. I used to pooh-pooh this place because I grew up right by Little Saigon, where some of the world's best pho restaurants compete side-by-side. I haven't eaten pho anywhere else in Seattle in years, but I think the pho here is really good! I will confess that I can't really speak for the plain beef broth, the true measure by which a pho restaurant is judged, because I invariably adulterate my soup with hoisin sauce, Sriracha, lime, basil, and bean sprouts before I ever taste a drop. I will say that the clarity of the broth is good, it's not too fatty, and smells just right when they deliver it to the table. The cream puffs here are great, especially if you add an iced espresso with milk (cafe sua da) to your order. It's up to you whether you eat the cream puff before or after your meal. Vietnamese limeade is also not to be missed. Order it if you aren't big into super strong, lip-smackingly sweet coffee. Pho is lovely for breakfast (particularly after a late, boozy night), but I usually end up here for dinner. Just make sure to get here well before 9 because they usually stop accepting eat-in customers about fifteen minutes before closing and they close early! Service is not great, but then again, that's not typically a hallmark of the dining experience at most Vietnamese restaurants. Everything you order comes at once, and then you never see your server again because you pay at the cash register. Anything you might need is on the table anyway, though you'll have to flag down a server if you drink up your huge glass of ice water and want more. more

Tasty Warm Soup for under $5 11/27/2005

One of the greatest things about the Than Brothers is that if you want a good meal, you can get a large bowl of Pho for under $5. I often don't spend much more than that there unless I want some tea. Also, they are typically very quick, which has its ups and downs. I don't really ever feel hurried particularly, buts its definitely a fast-paced environment. Don't come here expecting super friendly service and attention. Come for the taste and the price. more

Get soup! 10/24/2005

Pho has got to be the king of cheap food in Seattle. 4 bucks for a steaming bowl of soup. Nothing coud be better on a rainy Seattle day. And the cream puffs are amazing! more

The King of Soups 9/7/2005

Pho is undoubtedly the king of soups--comforting, filling, calming and warming, it kicks all the hot & spicy or egg drop ass in the world. All flavors are available in four sizes, with the small ($3.85) providing leftovers for most of us and the extra large ($5.95) capable of feeding four people. The list of drinks includes fresh lemonade ($1.35) and soothingly sweet hot cane tea ($1.75), as well as an assortment of excellent French and Vietnamese coffees. more

Vegetarian Pho served here 8/16/2005

Than Brothers specialises in Pho, and they have a simple but long menu of all the different (and allegeidly delicious) meat options available. What brings me to Than Brothers is their vegetarian pho, which is sort of difficult to find and definatly difficult to find a satisfying versian of. The soup comes in inexpensive and large portions... a bowl of steaming vegetarian broth with lightly friend tofu strips, thin rice noodles, and mushrooms, onions and cilantro. Accompanying this bowl is a large plate of fresh basil, sprouts, lime wedges and jalipenos, meant to be added to the soup at the table. In addition, there is also the requisit Seracha pepper sauce, hoisen sauce, and pepper oil. The end result is a really tasty body warming experience of a soup. The kicker is that a delicious homemade creampuff comes with each bowl of pho. the ambiance is clean and relativly simple, with lots of mirrors and light, and a few plants and alters and a fish tank. more
