We enjoy Vietnamese food and have been to several places and unfortunately this place is past its prime. We were clearly overcharged and the quality of the food was substandard as well as the service being extremely slow.

We were in town over Memorial Day weekend for my son's college graduation. There were five of us in which we sat at a very small table. This restaurant is run by a husband and wife who do all of the cooking and serving. Service was slow because of this. The food was very good but when it came time... More

A cute, authentic family run Vietnamese place. Very affordable, very friendly staff, and an interesting interior. Definitely a place to go to.

I've been to the Saigon Cafe several times over the past few years and have always had a good experience. It is run by a Vietnamese couple on their own and the food is excellent and always tastes fresh. The owner is always very friendly and talkative and now recognizes me when I come in which is nice. He is... More

I've been going to Saigon Cafe for over 20 years and have introduced scores of friends to this "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant. The owners are the nicest people and the food is very good. Have never had a bad dish here. It's not gourmet but yummy nonetheless. I love their Happy Pancake. If you're looking for fancy or great atmosphere this is... More

I feel bad leaving this review as my husband and I have been loyal customers for many years. The owners must be struggling because not only has the food quality deteriorated significantly, but the owner has now taken to adding extra food to your order and charging for it. I know I am not the only one this has happened... More

Was an authentic, reliable Viet cafe - with great Vienamese pancakes. An old stand-by that's gone the way of so many marginal (economically) places.

We eat at this restaurant several times a year. My teenage son loves the Steamed Imperial Rolls (served with a peanut dipping sauce) and the Lime Chicken (served on wooden spears). I enjoy the Hanoi Soup (beef, over thin noodles), and my husband the Chicken Nest (chicken with noodles and mixed vegetables). If you are new to Vietnamese cuisine or... More

We were looking for lunch around Vassar College and happened upon this tiny little place that was jammed at 1:30 on a Saturday so we went in. Although I had some reservations about this place all the reviews hanging on the wall were amazing and the host was so eager to please. The food, however was just average Vietnamese food.... More
