Are you kidding?. After having been told by multiple people that Pho Grand was the best Vietnamese food in town, we tried it -- and were we ever disappointed! The spring rolls were bland -- these are amazing if you've ever had good ones. For the main course, I ordered Pho (their namesake dish, it would seem); the broth was flavorless, the beef was overly done, and the noodles were soggy from overcooking. And, to top it all off, our service was brusque and bordering on rude. This was an extremely disappointing dining experience. The only thing positive was that it was inexpensive, as Vietnamese food usually is.
Flavorful, traditional Vietnamese fare reflects a range of cultures without sacrificing its distinctive identity..
Pho Grand is often crowded but never feels rushed, thanks to an agreeable decor accented by Vietnamese antiques. The restaurant prepares five silky variations of soup, all made with beef: Order the pho dac biet. Dishes, influenced by Thai, Chinese, French and Cambodian flavors, are seasoned with fish sauce (nuac mom), shrimp paste, lemon grass, mint, basil and curry. Try ga xao xa ot, sauteed chicken with chili peppers and lemon grass.
Irreplaceable and unbeatable.
I discovered Pho Grand about 6 months ago (thanks to citysearch) and have since been back a couple time each month. The atmosphere is wonderful, the food is excellent, and the servers are friendly and attentive. The value is second to none, as well. There is no better place to bring a date to on a limited budget.
Order the egg rolls and make sure to dip them in the sauce provided, you won't be dissapointed.
Valentine???. I was waiting for my friend on Valentine's day, for about 25 minutes, ordered appetizer and a glass of wine. After 20 minutes the hostess came to my table and asked me if I could wait in the waiting area as a favor for them. I thought it was the rudest behavior imaginable to ask a woman apparently waiting for a date on Valentine's day to leave. I will never go back, although the food was great.
Yummy and Funky!. The atmosphere is nice and the food is VERY affordable!
Great Place.... This place got high reviews from Zagat's and I have enjoyed it for years. The recently updated menu includes many new and fresh choices... and it is so CHEAP to eat here... I recommend it highly... but it is usually crowded... so come at an off time or call ahead... or wait.
Wonderful. Fantastic food at an ubelievable price. Never had a bad experience
PHO GRAND is the BEST. Personally, Pho Grand has been my favorite restaurant since i moved here to Saint Louis, and that is out of all the restauirants ive been to in the east coast and the other midwestern sates. If you think you don't like asian food as a rule, you might be suprised, this is AUTHENTIC vietnamese cuisine, not your chinese delivery, it is excellent food, at a fantastic price. The service is good, the atmosphere is beautiful and theres always somethingnew to try, and I'm never dissappointed. I highly recommend that you start with the spring rolls, dip them in the porange sauce, and then some plum (which will be in the caddy on the table). oh and though the restaurant itself is very small, it adds to the charm, just make sure you get there before the crowds on friday and saturday evenings.
Outstanding Food. Think Thai, but not as rich and sweet. Start out with the spring rolls and you can't go wrong, but make sure you try the wonton soup and the lotus root salad. The tofu is surprisingly good (and I'm NOT a vegetarian!).
EXCELLENT!. PHO Grand is the best Asian resturant I have found in St. Louis. Try the Pho Tai for a great beef and rice noodle soup and the garlic shrimp. The prices are amazingly cheap. The resturant is small but very cute with great service. Even the restrooms are spotless.
