By all means if you love Asian food, Saigonese is a must-go! We have been eating there for twenty-some years, and have never been disappointed. The service is outstanding, and the food is authentic at a very reasonable price. Our picky four year old and six year old boys love it there, as well! A favourite is the coconut chicken... More

I had late lunch with a friend. The restaurant was not busy, but the service was really slow and the waitress was aloof. The food was ok.

Spring Rolls were burnt and hard on the ends. My husband and I both ordered Sate Beef Soup. It was so oily they we couldn't eat it. The noodles they used looked like ichiban noodles. We ended up sending it back and leaving. Very disappointed.

This resturant is very nice. The staff is very pleasent. We went at 3:30 pm so there was not many people in the place. The food took a little while to come but it was due to everything being made fresh. The wait was worth it. The food was cooked perfectly and was very fresh. We ordered two main dishes... More

Try the spring rolls! They are great! The soups are pretty large portions so be prepared to eat! There is a lot to choose from, so I try to try something new every time!

The last time I visited the Saigonese, I was with family and it took us well over an hour to be seated. It was busy but many people who came in after me were seated ahead of me, which didn't impress me at all. This was once one of the best restaurants in Lethbridge. The food is good but the... More

The food is ok compared to other restaurants that serve the same food. I have been there 3 times different times of the day and the service is terrible. It takes them 10- 15 minutes to come get your order. I was there today arond 2pm and hardly anyone there and it took them 10 minutes to get us menus.... More

We eat regularly at this restaurant. My wife likes the Bar-b-Que pork and Spring rolls over rice noodles as she does not like spices. ask the vietnamese waitresses and they will give you an honest opinion of their dishes. Very popular with the locals

Having travelled throughout Asia and lived in Vancouver I love REAL Asian food. Not the deep fried soggy tasteless fare found all too often. The flavours of Vietnam to me are of cilantro, birds eye chili, the tang of a sweetened rice vinegar dip, pho, and of course Vietnamese sandwiches- you will not find any of these items at this...

Nothing special. Just a pleasant family-run restaurant, serving a variety of Canadianized Vietnamese food. A little grubby, but not disgustingly dirty. Before you complete your order, pay a visit to the bathroom. If it is not up to your standards, leave.
