First the good news: this little pho place manages to serve a host of people quickly, cordially and efficiently. I think there were a total of three personnel present, two in the kitchen and one server, and within minutes of our arrival (at about 5:30 PM, because we'd heard it got crowded fast) it had every table full. Nevertheless, out... More

I have been going to this place for years and the food is always amazing! If you go, try the salad rolls, the peanut sauce is incredible :)

Crispy noodle with beef and stir fry veg. Noodles were crunchy rather than light, meat sauteed rather than grilled, veggies steam cooked and the stir fry in oyster sauce didn't happen. Oily medium brown watery dish liquid was the sauce sitting at the bottom of the oval plate with no flavour or deliciousness. Something wrong here. Not supposed to be... More

Greeted with Welcome, serviced beyond belief, wine was great, food delivered fast and was outstanding. Recommend this great restaurant to everyone. Owner even comes around and talks with patrons.

Shocked at how high the ratings are for this place. Small town with no better comparisons I guess. Poor service. Poor food. I ordered pho because I figured it was the safe choice. Not so. Pretty terrible. Save your money.

Pho, salad rolls, make that everything is served by a waitress you will not see..so get what you want NOW. TIPS will get you remembered and service will be adjusted accordingly (forewarned don't be a stiff re tips). You WILL be back.

This is our hidden gem. A small unassuming little family restaurant with great Vietnamese food. We have traveled extensively in Vietnam and this is the closest you'll get without actually going there. Don't expect fancy but do expect good food. It has been our secret place for a great taste of Vietnam. I'm letting you in on our secret but... More

If you like Vietnamese food look no further than Saigon Garden. Great pho, salad rolls, shrimp rolls and try the chicken hot pot. Everything is good.
