Their banh mi here is cheap ($4) and delicious. I walk over here for lunch. It seems like they make it for you when you order and not always pre-made which I like and appreciate.
I ordered their pho to go. And while it was good, they didn't include any Sriracha or hosin sauce to go, and places typically have it in small containers. There was a lime. Though Sriracha and hosin are usually a given when eating pho. I'm sure if I asked they would have given me it, but they should have already been in there.
The service is awesome. The young lady that's always at the front is engaging and makes you feel comfortable.
We were looking around the area for a quick lunch and saw this place, we opted to try it out. It was spacious inside and can accommodate large group. Service was quick and friendly. We ordered fresh shrimp and pork spring rolls, beef vermicelli bowl for my husband and my usual beef and meatball pho. The serving portions for a large bowl is exactly what I expect, a large bowl. Segue, I've noticed that some Vietnamese pho places now serve the "large" portions in a medium bowl and their small portions, in a well, small bowl.
So the first thing I noticed, their spring roll is not tightly packed. I'm no stranger to nice and tightly packed spring rolls and their peanut sauce is watery. Next is the pho, the meat is dry like it has been frozen for a long time. I don't know, but I was wondering where they buy their meat while having the pho.

Ordered the steak pho and some spring rolls. Spring rolls were just okay, I've definitely had better. The sauce was also really runny and lacking flavor. My table also ordered a salad and 2 vermicelli bowls (1 shrimp and the other pork w/ egg roll). My pho was mediocre, I was so excited because I was so hungry but was sadly unimpressed. The soup wasn't very beefy either, tasted a bit watered down. The pieces of steak were also not very appetizing, I didn't eat much of the meat.
My table enjoyed their food, their dishes looked a lot better than mine. Maybe next time I'll try a noodle dish instead. Gave 3 stars since my group enjoyed their food.
Lately I've been sticking to my go-to's and haven't had the time to try something new... but last Thursday we decided to stop at Thien Phat for a quick dinner. It was super hot outside (like 95 degrees!), so naturally it was SUPER HOT inside -- I mean, not many small restaurants have AC in Seattle, ya know? The server sat us down by a fan and after about five minutes we got used to the heat.
I decided to get the bun vermicelli bowl with eggrolls and grilled pork, and my bf got some sort of curry rice? I gotta say that the portion sizes here are enormous! My bun bowl was way bigger than I was expecting, and the food was pretty yummy too. The fish sauce had the perfect amount of sweetness.
I was tempted to try one of their avocado smoothies (they advertise that almost all of their smoothies are made with fresh fruit!) but I decided to pass this time since I was already full from my food. I'll be back to try the pho -- and probably the smoothie -- but it'll most likely be on a cooler day... lol.
Good value for your money. Food was OK, not screaming amazing. Place was cleaner than the typical Asian restaurant with a big screen TV.
Had Hu Tieu and it was OK. Meat was tender but something was amiss to not making it great
