Large portions and speedy service!

After a case of our eyes being too big for our bellies we were pleased that our waitress offered to box up the leftovers. Delicious freshly cooked food and will definately be returning.

If you can't decide between Chinese or Vietnamese cuisine, you can get both here. The food is excellent, the prices are good, with an extensive lunch menu. The service is good and fast. Great place to eat in the downtown university area. If you don't want to pay for parking, there is free parking in the residential area nearby, if... More

Their Cilantro Chicken is good and overall their Vietnamese food will meet your fix for Pho. But it's not necessarily my first choice. I never order Chinese food from here.

My first visit to Ann Arbor USA. Pleasant, fast service, food is ok by my standards. Not expensive. Would recommend if in Ann Arbor and looking for Asian food that is not expensive. Do note menu is limited and serve Vietnamese/Chinese style?

We were staying in Ann Arbor for several weeks and had take out from here a couple of times, based on the choice of our daughter and son-in-law who live there. The food was very good; I especially loved the Cold Noodles with Sesame. The portions were generous and the leftovers never lasted very long.

Saigon garden started life as a Chinese restaurant under a different name, then morphed into one serving both Chinese and Vietnamese food, but has retained its Chinese menu, from which I always order. I have been here for both lunch and dinner, and woud have to say that the dinner experience is fairly average, but the Chinese lunch specials are... More

We have found this to be a solid neighborhood restaurant with fresh ingredients and good service. We usually order the Chinese items; we like the summer rolls and hot and sour soup too.

Having been in Ann Arbor a little while, I know the choices for pho are limited here. Told of Saigon Garden recently, I was keen to try it. While they have a good selection of items, the pho was what I was craving so ordering was quick. Pho and an order of Summer rolls to start. The Summer rolls were... More

This restaurant has some of the best Vietnamese noodle soups going around. I haven't tried much more than that off the menu, but why bother trying something else when you found something so hot, filling and slurpy? Their broth has been consistent every time I've gone there and the bowls are as big as your head. Each time it is... More
