St. Louis Pho - Closed

3863 S. Grand Blvd. St. Louis, MO 63116 | St. Louis - South City | 314-664-4041

Location Description:

An unassuming Vietnamese restaurant in an old Burger King, St. Louis Pho will impress you with its vibrantly flavored dishes. Its namesake dish, the traditional beef-noodle soup, is outstanding, the broth so richly flavored you might not even want to doctor it with fresh herbs or lime juice. Among the standout “House Special” dishes are lemongrass beef with fiery hot chiles and a chicken curry reminiscent of both Indian and Thai cuisine. Several pricey seafood dishes (a whole lobster and Dungeness crab) are also available.
