Authentic Vietnamese food at great prices!

This place is always busy because of the food. It's also a good sign when you see local Vietnamese also eat here. Although the rice dishes are popular, the pho is why I come here regularly. The soup broth is hot and savory with generous portions of brisket, tendon, tripe, basil, lime, and bean... read more

I will admit the food is alright but unfortunately cleanliness and personality play a big part in a dining our experience. More food on the walls then on my dish

A little difficult to find because it is so inconspicious with small signage. However it was worth the effort. We visited over noon hour and it was busy but no waiting. The service was fast, the food was fast.

I have been going to this restaurant since it opened and I LOVE it! The food is fresh and delicious. The servers quiet and efficient. The decor's a bit tacky but that's part of the experience. The spring rolls are the best (they sell out quickly) and all the 14's I have enjoyed. Try a Vietnamese coffee...it's an unusual treat!

A great place to have Pho, THE soup of Vietnam, with an authentic taste at affordable prices. My fav. Is Pho Ga under $8 for a big bowl of noodles, chicken and lots of fresb basil and lime to squeeze into the soup. The noodle house tends to be busy and closes early at 7 pm). No credit cards accepted.

The Saigon Noodle House has been a quiet little fixture in Courtenay for nearly 20 years and the menu hasn't varied greatly in all that time. You go in and order your #14a for the twentieth time because that is the one you tried first and you go back to have it again. Very rarely do you try another dish,... More

We returned to Saigon Noodle House for dinner after being only here previously for lunch. The place was hopping and is obviously very popular with locals. We were seated quickly, tea was promptly served and the service was attentive. We thought we might be waiting awhile for our order as the place was very full but our orders were served... More
