One of my favorites!

I've been coming to Thai Son for years and still love it! The lemongrass chicken or pork chops on rice are to die for. If you feel like something besides Pho, try the beef short ribs or the crepe it's served with a lettuce and herbs and is suppose to be eaten like a lettuce wrap. But there's only one catch with these two dishes they only serve it after five, but if it's not to busy they sometimes make a special request. You won't be disappointed!

If there's better pho elsewhere, i'd like to know where.

Thai Son is my new favorite place to get Pho. I too was a fan of Thang Long on Main before it closed down. Pho Hoa on Kingsway has always been an old standby, but in my humble opinion Thai Son has the edge. Very fresh sprouts and basil (the mark of a good pho place in my opinion), very nice lightly flavored broth, and decent serving sizes. The service is wonderfully efficient and genuinely friendly. This place is always busy but I've never waited for a seat. I should also mention that this place seems very popular with actual Vietnamese patrons, always a good sign. I've had the lemongrass chicken which was also good. I believe the food here is Vietnamese with a Thai angle on it. Plus they play Canucks games and are in the hood (Mount Pleasant). What's not to like?

delicious noodles
By cook_n_eat of Vancouver (19 Reviews)

I ordered their special menu, which was spicy beef noodles or something. I can't deny that the noodle soup is indeed delicious and generous. However, I think their food is just too fatty. I can see too much oil floating on my soup. I thought it was jsut because they put a lot of chili oil, but then it was the same case on somebody's clear beef noodle soup without chili oil. They also use low quality beef that is full of fat. I struggled when eating my meal because I was trying to trim the fat inside every slice of beef I was about to eat. I might be coming back to try another kind of food, but not sure of that.

Used to be better

I have eaten this restaurant several times, the first time wasn't long after it opened several years ago. It was slightly above average then, but both quality and quantity have declined over the years. There isn't as much meat, even for large bowls, and the soup is not as flavouful as before. They blanch the bean sprouts, a practice I don't like, but perhaps done to appease common taste. Service has always been bare bones. You are lucky if you get a smile, but you probably won't be mistreated either. On a wall they have newspaper clippings of some Asian celebrities that I don't recognize patronizing the restaurant. For me, this is an average Vietnamese restaurant. The best pho I've had is unfortunately still from a little family establishment in Toronto.

good spring rolls
By lamned of Vancouver (13 Reviews)

EXTREMELY generous portions of pho -- delicious too! not too soft, the chewiness is just right. The prawn spring rolls were tasty too. Service is fast and servers are polite. Definitely recommend this place.
