Saigon Garden

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.

A restaurant that closes at 7pm during the summer season is not very helpful. It is easily accessibly by car, enough parking spots are available. Could have been a delicious dinner, unfortunately it wasn't.

First visit, Wonton Soup good! Stir fry of Tofu bland and chewy with a lack of good flavour! Looked at other tables dishes, many served a tough piece of meat along with noodles and deep fried egg rolls, need to really examine how to compete with fine Vancouver Viet restaurants as in Patksville if you do it right you have...

The hot and sour soup is a must! This place is where all the locals eat so it is packed from about 11:45 to about 1:30, so plan accordingly!

Great food. Fresh hot and huge portions. Flavorful yummy. No wait time less than 10 minutes. Service is great. Girls are very pleasant. Prices are average 6.50 fir a huge dish. Laid back not a fussy upscale joint just a simple yummy little diner. Don't judge a book by its cover. Sooo worth trying. It's a weekly stop for us.... More
