Love this place!

Best spot in town for a cheap, quick, delicious lunch! I prefer to eat in as I find the take out can quite often get mixed up.. I always check my bags now before I leave..

Quick an easy food delivery to the table. Just pick a number and tell the waitress. My problem was that I wanted wor won ton, and when the prawns came, they had not been cleaned. The waitress said the prawns came to them that way. When I go there-once in a while, I order the wor won on, but ask... More

Hugely disappointing. Spent $9 for House Special Fried Rice and got about 1-1/2 Cups rice, 4 pcs of quartered shrimp, dried chips of Chinese pork sausage and no flavour overall. Ordered Curried Chicken with vermicelli for $10.50 thinking that these 2 plates would be enough for two for lunch. Anywheres else, this would be even less than a Combo plate... More

We like Saigon Garden. The whole family likes the food and we love the price. Servers are always friendly and fast. Do not go in expecting luxury... basic service and clean.

I enjoy eating here very much. I get take-out most of the time. I definitely love the lemongrass chicken. I think the prices are very reasonable. It's definitely not a fancy place in the least bit. But is a great place to have a quick, simple meal. Service can be a bit slow but it's understandable since the place is... More

We had read the reviews and anticipated a nice meal. We each had a combination plate of lemongrass chicken, vegetable rolls, shrimp and vermicelli. Unfortunately when it arrived the chicken was overdone and tasted slightly burnt. There was no lemongrass flavour at all. The rolls and shrimp were REALLY deep fried to the point of being extremely crunchy. Everything tasted... More

The best salad rolls in the area, lots of traditional dishes, we have eaten here many times. Service is great and fast, food is made fresh as in most Vietnamese restaurants.Some dishes are a little to sweet.

Arrived there at about 17:45 and were told that they were closing in 45 minuted. Waitress seemed rushed. Food was OK, but not of the quality we are used to in other small Vietnamese restaurants. Would not go back.
