Have had many lunches and dinners here; the food is consistently good served in a fun, college town atmosphere. Luncheon specials are a very good deal with many choices.

Such a joy to be able to eat authentic Vietnamese food in this little New England town. We eat there every chance we get, at least monthly. The barbeque pork bun is delilcious. Noodles with veges and oyster sauce are yummy. Fresh rolls with shrimp and peanut sauce are the best of anywhere we have tried them! Not thrilled with... More

I love Vietnamese food and seek out restaurants when I travel. My bun tom nuang was just ok. Seems like "fast food" version rather than authentic homemade. It was ok. I'd try somewhere else before I went back.

There were a lot of college student customers and not enough waitresses, thus resulting in a longer wait for food. We ordered the "supposedly popular" curry phô and it turned out to be not so good... Though the regular phô was alright. No special recollection though. :/ All in all, solid phô restaurant with nice ambiance.

Setting is casual with formica tables and booths. Miss Saigon is well known by the locals. Lines form during the weekend , however, service is fast and efficient once seated. Definitely try the pho soup. The pho (popular Vietnamese noodle and broth dish) is fragrant with fresh cilantro and basil. The beef pho , not the beef tripe, is a... More

I would concur with the positive reviews and can see why this restaurant is ranked so highly among Amherst's offerings. I can't speak to whether or not the food is authentically Vietnamese or not, but the dishes are very fresh, flavorful and reasonable priced. The waitstaff are friendly and hardworking. The decor is pleasant. I would definitely go back.

We have been here in this restaurant before, a few years ago, and the Vietnamese menu seem endlessly vast in the variety and flavor. This restaurant have excellent soups, traditional Vietnamese and that the vegetable dishes are also excellent, delicious! We feel that this "type" of food needs some getting used to,that the taste is very different and very light... More

So wonderful to have a delicious, fresh, and flavorful Vietnamese restaurant, open relatively late night and for delivery! Some of the most delicious spicy crab rangoons I've ever had! Definitely real value for the money. Tons of variety. Also, many desert flavor and options. Good-sized portions.

I am a vegan and I LOVE their options here. I love to get their vegetable spring rolls. They have great noodle entree options, but my absolute hands down favorite is #33 the vegetable pho. Ask for it with curry broth! To die for!
