Pho was tasteless. There was no choice of cuts, and the broth was bland. There wasn't any Thai basil, lime, jalapeno, or Sriracha sauce available. Also, the waiter argued with another customer over the soup she wanted to order. He spent over 5 minutes trying tell her she could only get a certain soup if she ordered online and carried out. It was utterly ridiculous to watch, I feel angry and embarrassed for her.

I really wanted to try a Vietnamese restaurant while in San Antonio and this one was the closest to my hotel that had at least a partial menu online. Needless to say, they ended up having more Chinese food options than Vietnamese. I went with the beef vermacelli and was rather disappointed. It tasted okay, but it was really nothing more than a beef pancit bijon from the Philippines with some curry added to it when they stir fried it.

The wife and I enjoy this restaurant on a regular basis. I stick with the Vietnam menu when I go, I have tried dishes from the Chinese side of things but prefer the Vietnam food. Best items, small soup supreme is excellent rice noodles with pcs. of chicken and broth to start your meal. The Spring Rolls are the best in the city, one other place on Broadway is close to the quality, I have looked elsewhere, but to me it is the best. As a dish I recommend the Chicken Lemon Grass, it comes with white rice and the Triple Delight. If you want something other than the white rice the Combination Fried Rice is also good. The restaurant is family owned from the kitchen to wait staff, sometimes they get over run with business, but they are nice good people.

I heard about 'em. Read about 'em and it's all true. The spring rolls are the best I've ever had! Not those dinky things on a buffet stuffed with cabbage. Kim Tran's are filled with more meat than vegetables and taste great!My combo (beef, chicken and shrimp) with noodles was huge for lunch, but I ate every bit of it. Only down side was the service was a little (just a little) slow. Probably because it was Friday at lunch time. Also, the restaurant is not huge. Nice place for a party of up to six for lunch, but any larger would be a challenge to sit them all comfortably.

Food is very bland. I ordered extra spicy Mongolian Beef. Was just a little spicy but no flavor to the entree. My boyfriend had the Lemongrass Chicken and same, no flavor!! Fish sauce for spring rolls was almost like it was watered down. No fish danky sauce smell. Only thing good was spring roll.Sorry, we won't try this place again.

We ate from here yesterday and we will not be returning! The food was very bland. Idk what kind of "fried rice" they gave us, it was juet yellow and had some hard parts in it. So I'm sure some of the rice was old. I had generals chicken and I honestly did not eat it. Waste of money waste of time. I did read the reviews before going to this place but I figured I won't really know until I try myself. Definitely do not recommend!

Very good food for the price. The menu has mostly traditional Chinese food. There were some Vietnamese dishes, and I tried a bowl of pho, a Vietnamese traditional soup. It was very good! The broth was flavorful. The service was fast and the server was attentive. Give it a try!

Came for lunch the other day expecting Vietnamese food, it definitely was not. While they had ONE kind of Pho, the rest is basically "Chinese" cuisine. The server was rather odd. Couldn't remember who ordered what. Asked us to hand him our drinks to be refilled. And never seemed very interested in us after we got our food (one order of which was wrong). Overall, not impressed. Won't go back again thats for sure.

It's has its unique flavor that is a little different in other Chinese food that I've taste in America, probably because I usually ate at Chinese buffet. I just rate this 3 stars because serving was not big enough for the pricing.

Decided to check the place out since it had decent reviews. At first sight, it looks like cliche, old and dingy. The service was okay, the servers were prompt but not the most welcoming. I honestly don't know what people see in this place. It's terrible, the fried rice was bland and the lemon chicken tasted like a mystery meat. I'm of Chinese descent and have had my fair share of Asian foods but this was not it. Definitely don't recommend this place.

Tucked away just off Ft. Sam, this place can get busy at lunch. Good food, pleasant service. Nice place to go in between rush hours to sit by the window with a good book.

I tried the limon grass chicken from the vietnamese side of the lunch menu because it had good reviews. The vietnamese egg rolls are excellent but the chicken was very dry and not what I was expecting. I prefer a meal with vegetables and it's just chicken and rice. I was disappointed.But... came back a week later and had the chicken with vegetables and vietnamese spring roles and was very satisfied. Very reasonably priced menu and not a very busy lunch rush and the service is quick.

The lemongrass chicken with rice noodles here is the best I have ever had! The entire family could not get enough of it. You should definitely add this dish from this place to your bucket list.
