The Pho Ga (small) is usually more than enough for a meal. The broth, noodles and vegetables pair well with the chicken, although it is dry as other reviewers have called it out. This can be overlooked with the fresh vegetable condiments and various hot sauces to add to it. It still would be nice to get something a little... More

The Than Brothers Pho restaurant in West Seattle is deceivingly plan from the outside. The inside is unpretentious, but clean and the the service is friendly. Served with fresh condiments, bean sprouts and basil along with cream puffs for desert, the Pho is always fast, hot and made to order. It has been known to stop a cold right in... More

My family lives in Saigon most of the year and we all agree that Than Bros. Pho is the best in Seattle and better than most of the pho places in Vietnam. I miss the atmosphere of old location on Broadway, but the pho is still the same. When it is rainy and cold in Seattle, which is most of... More

Where else for under $10 can you get a hearty meal served hot and fresh. This is a regular weekend stop for me. The service is great and the location can't be beat.

I had not tried this location until today. The service was fast, and the prices are very reasonable. I had the Pho GA (with chicken) the chicken was plentiful but dry (over cooked). The broth was good.

I am a fan of the North Vietnamese Pho and this never disappoints. I'm fortunate to live in West Seattle, where there is a Than on California and work in Bellevue, where there is a Than by Crossroads mall. This winter I started coming down with the crud and ate here 11 days in a row. i never got sick... More

You can forgive a lot if the atmosphere has character. I understand why they left the funky old digs for the shiny new, but now it just feels like a fast-food place. Since they moved across the street, they've fallen off their stride. I hope they can recapture it.

The focus really is on slinging cheap and tasty bowls as quickly as possible and some things get left behind in that quest...namely cleaning and service. Cleaning: The bathroom tends to be frightening which is not acceptable in any restaurant. After all, if they are willing to have a filthy bathroom visible to customers can you imagine the parts of...

In the past I reviewed "cheap eats" ... a great quick inexpensive meal, as I learned that they use MSG, I no longer eat there.

Had lunch here and it hit the spot. Very good pho with basil, sprouts and jalapeño peppers to accompany the broth plus meat and reasonable prices. No complaints. The homemade cream puff was an unexpected addition. Good basic, street food.
