Good food

We ordered veggie spring rolls, pork spring rolls, the pho with flank steak and a combo dish with pork, bean sprouts and rice vermicelli. All food was very good the service was fast and the restaurant was clean. Note: they only accept cash.

I like Vietnamese and this food was decent but I couldn't get past the arrogance of the owner. Truly rude, I find it hard to believe this guy runs a business and people put up with him. Cash only, so that tells me something. You should think real hard if you support this establishment. Will not return.

I ordered the vegetarian spring rolls on vermicelli noodles. The lunch meal was okay and a decent price. The decor is beyond tacky and dated. Cleanliness (as mentioned by previous reviewers) is not a priority. When I went to the front counter to pay with my Visa, the owner VERY rudely informed me, "Cash only!" I had no cash, nor... More

If you want quick, simple and delicious, this is the place to go! My favourite is the curry. No skimping on vegetables or meat here! Two downsides one should be aware of; the parking situation is not the best, and they only accept cash. But the food is more than worth it.

We have been going to the Saigon Noodle House since it opened in the nineteen nineties. Whenever I walk past it, the amazing aromas draw me in. The food is fresh and absolutely awesome for flavour. . I have tried almost every dish on the menu and have never been disappointed. It is also hard to beat the prices.

We ordered both noodle and rice dishes for lunch. The food came out promptly and was delicious. Would have given a 5 - star rating, except the meat and noodle portions for my Bun Bo Hue noodle was pretty skimpy and not spicy as usual.
