Searching for pho

near my office at 183 and Oak Knoll. Since Tea House closed, not sure where to go that would be within a 10 minute drive.

  1. i think Tan My on Ohlen would be about 10 minutes [though at the limit]. one of my favorites. Really flavorful broth.


    Tan My Restaurant
    1601 Ohlen Rd, Austin, TX 78758

    1. There's a place in the Riata - Ming's Cafe, I think - that serves pho and other vietnamese basics. I don't recall it being memorably outstanding, but decent, and very near where you work.

      1. Have you tried Saigang? It's in the same strip center as BB Rovers and Dimassi's. Not outstanding, but very close to you.

          I do not recommend this place. Bad to surley service, mediocer food (quite stingy with the chicken in the Pho Ga)

        2. Can't remember the name of the place, but there is a place on Burnet just south of Braker, same strip center as Andiamo, pretty good.
          Also, its not pho, but just as good on a cold day, the beef noodle soup at Chen's noodle House, just up the road at 183 & spicewood

            I liked Sagiang when I went, but I didn't have pho.
            My favorite pho is Pho Cong Li, which is next to Din Ho.
            Pho Huang at Rutland and Burnet
            Kim Phung north, but that may be too far.

            1. re: rudeboy

              If I recall correctly, the pho joint next to Din Ho is Pho Van. Maybe it used to be Pho Cong Li? Regardless of the establishment's name, it's my favorite. It's also a jaunt down 183 from Oak Knoll, but doable for lunch.

              1. re: agoodbite

                Pho Van is my staple for pho, because although I prefer Sunflower's pho more, Sunflower's pho is too rich to eat frequently. Pho Van's is lighter, and so I save Sunflower for when I want a real treat.

                Tan My is also very good, although I prefer the mi (egg noodle in chicken broth) over the pho.

                1. re: agoodbite

                  Oh, you are right. Pho Van is correct......and since it is right on the freeway, I think that it would be an easy 10 min commute.

            2. Not sure if you can get there in 10 mins but, imo, Pho Hoang at Rutland/Burnet is hands down the best in Austin.
