Took a chance and stopped here for lunch while we were out and about. We had a good lunch of noodle soup. The service was very friendly with the owner stopping to chat. Would recommend this for a change for lunch.

The inside was clean and the service was speedy. The food was good. I thought the apps were expensive for the small amount you get. The inside looks like a house that was converted. I asked for spicy and my food didn't come out that way. The flavoring was good but would have been better if it was spicier.

Was so disappointed in our family dinner there last night. Food was very average tasting, service slow, and bathrooms dirty! Can only imagine what the kitchen looked like! I am not sure if they have different owners but this was not the food we once savored at Saigon City!

In a charming old home on the Post Road in Old Saybrook, the Vietnamese food is delicious . Since Thai is available elsewhere I'd like to see more Vietnamese food on the menu although the Thai is very good. Try the Shaking Beef!

My parents had always loved it here and had not been in several years. We went recently and the food was heavily fried and all looked the same except for the shape. The overall quality of the food was just not good. The service was pleasant and we really wanted to like it, but the food was pretty bad.

The food here was just delicious! The taste was very fresh. The service was prompt and very friendly. We went for lunch and had Pad Thai and Stir Fry Wraps. They were some of the best we've had! We will definitely remember this stop next time we visit this town.

We ate dinner here one evening, a table for four. There were two other couples in the restaurant at the time so it wasn't packed nor too busy. Our boys were delighted with their Shirley Temple Cocktails! We'd high expectations, not sure why except that the restaurant had looked lovely from the outside. The food and service were okay -...

The visit started out good. We were seated at a table we requested and had 2 incredible servers making sure we had drinks and set ups. I can't say enough good about our server. She was amazing. The food was okay but not nearly as good as we had around 9 months ago. Chicken appetizers were dry and satay sauce... More

Came here for the first time in June with my boyfriend, we had terrific service even though it was busy and my pad Thai was great and his duck entree was yummy. We recommended family members to go, however they returned with different impressions. They said the service was awful and food was just ok. Our first time was so... More

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The food was very good, the service was friendly and there were lots of great choices. I had the hot and sour soup to start, which was delicious. I got the "small cup" and it was twice as much as I could eat. I ordered the vegetarian pad Thai and... More
