I've eaten there once a week for the past year and the Spicy beef in Lemon grass sauce (#68 on the menu) is the best dish I've ever eaten. The service displayed by a courteous staff allows for a great dining experience. Highly recommended!

We go there at least once a week and the food never disappoints. We have actually never had a dish that we did not like. We go there for lunch and take out for dinner. The ambiance is nothing to speak of, the chairs are uncomfortable and the wine list is very subpar. But, the food is delicious!!

I came for lunch one weekday, and had to wait by the door 4 or 5 minutes before anyone came to seat me. I was brought water a few minutes after I was seated, but wasn't asked if I wanted anything else to drink. Finally after about 10 minutes someone came to take my order. Food was served quickly, and... More

I'm having a hard time rating Saigon Cafe. On one hand, the food is excellent. The Pho is delicious, the appetizers are amazing and I have never had an entree I didn't love. On the other hand, the service leaves a great deal to be desired. On a recent visit, there were 45 people inside the restaurant. At the same... More

We love this place. Good Pho. Excellent egg rolls. Sweet and sour chicken is my wife's favorite. You can order the strength of spice you like

Great food! Service staff may need a little help, they need more charisma (except for the owner who is always there, he's wonderful). Definitely recommend this place!'

Sweet and sour soup was amazing. I ordered seafood pho and spicy seafood with lemon grass was good. Shrimp taste fresh. But service should be improved.

Good Pho there folks. I am sure I'll be coming back again. The service was nice except for the young waitress (blondie) who almost ruined my mood. My asian family went there and every one of us ordered Pho. In the menu, they offer "you can make your own summer roll but there's a warning is the menu that YOU... More

The ingredients are fresh and tasty, the staff is friendly, and the prices are reasonable. Try the fresh spring rolls, and pho!
