Saigon Kitchen was a visit on a whim the first time we visited. The food was outstanding, the service was friendly and on point. Needless to say, our first visit was not our last!

Saigon Kitchen is a fantastic Vietnamese restaurant located just west of Reems on Bell Road. The staff is exceptionally attentive and the food quality is superb. Andy, Josh, and Ignacio are wonderful servers and keep your glasses filled, as well as check in with you while you're dining to see that everything is going well without being obtrusive. Danny is...

The menu had something for everybody and so reasonably priced! All in the party were delighted with the freshness and flavors except that they got one guest's order wrong. When they fixed it, it was different from what was expected. Aside from that glitch it was a great dining experience that we would repeat. I always enjoy their Phos but... More

We had a fantastic meal at Saigon Kitchen. I recommend it highly - everything was delicious! We arrived just before 6pm and could sit right down. By 6:30 there was growing crowd of people waiting for tables.

Not an expert with Vietnamese food but we enjoyed our meal immensely. Service was fast - maybe a touch too fast but it was pretty busy - and the serving size was just right for us. A "big eater" might want to supplement with appetizers etc. They've installed acoustic baffling in the ceiling which helped cut down on the noise... More

Saigon Kitchen was recommended to me by a trusted relative. She loves it, I thought it was average. The Crispy Squid was the best thing we had - make sure you order it. I had the eggplant and it was average, as was the Pho. There were 8 of us in the group and it was surprisingly expensive considering we... More

Had the crispy squid and chicken pho with spicy sauce. It was so delicious that I have been having Pho for most of my lunches since last Sunday.

Decent Vietnamese place--I've def had better but that was in SF. Hard to come by good viet place that isn't just Pho. Bring your own beer--there's a place on the corner you can go and they let you bring it in.

Knowing nothing about Vietnamese food, I agreed to try it with a friend. It's a small and very casual cafe. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. I tried their signature Saigon Kitchen curry with chicken.. It was very good. I certainly would eat here again.

The menu was fairly extensive for a Vietnamese Restaurant and the food was great. The service was quick and the waitress pleasant. If you're in Ithaca looking for a good place for dinner I highly recommend this one.

Thank Rick E
