My son was craving southeast Asian & my sister checked some online reviews and found one of the best rated restaurants was right across the street from our hotel. It was a busy place, with other large family parties, but the friendly manager seated our group of 7 right away. One staff member wasn't comfortable with English but immediately called... More

The second nite had the Ginger Chicken and it was totally unacceptable. Recommended by the hotel Concierge Bell Boy! Over rated and inconsistent quality, but popular for reasonable prices.

After some shopping in Rue St-Catherine we were dying for some good Asian food. You can bring your own wine in Cafe Saigon. Don't we love this? The atmosphere was quite busy and noisy, but that didn't bother us. I think some people had a bit too much of the wine they brought ;-) The place itself hasn't got a... More

Two of my friends have been robbed while in this restaurant. Both swear they locked their cars and there was no signs of breaking anything to get in...So if you go to this restaurant please bring your valuables inside.

Excellent customer service! Very attentive waitstaff (well the one and his busser)-had to a wait a bit-but understood on a busy Friday night. The Satay spicy soup with "3 red chill" peppers I ordered, was great-I had hiccups which means it was just spicy enough. Saddle, the combo noodle/roll bowl was unimpressive. I've eaten at a good number of other... More

I dine here ounce in March 2013. I ordered a Viet dish and nems. I asked for Vietnamese nems, i.e. fried Viet rolls, but was served Chinese ones. I used to work and live in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. So I can distinguish between the Vietnamese nems and the Chinese rolls. But the main dish was very good and... More

I've been going to Cafe Saigon for about 12 years now and never thought about writing a review. So here's one that I hope will help my favorite restaurant of all time. I've toured the menu so many times that it's hard to say what is my favorite dish but here's one thing I can tell, each dish feels homemade.... More

Although it is in a basement location, the atmosphere is very pleasant. When other places in the area are empty, this place is often crowded.

A real gem, a cash only resteraunt with a constant flow of people. Fantastic food, the Pad Thi to DIE for such amazing depths of flavour and so cheap. Hubby had chow mien which was also sub stantiel. Nice entrees and BYO everything. Walked passed the place as its tucked away, please do yourself a flavour ! I mean favour... More

The great food, attentive staff, reasonable prices and BYOB policy make the restaurant a winner. Good choice for a restaurant near the Olympia theatre for dinner before the show. From the exterior it may not seem like much and the interior is a bit somber, but do not let that deter you. I was a little concerned as I had... More
