The owners and their staff are very attentive and the food was good. Not a lot of vegetarian noodle dishes, but they have curries and mixed vegetables that looked pretty good.

A fantastic place to have fresh fish, fast and efficient service and "good food". If you come to Torremolinos, that's the roght place to have excent lunch at 20m from the sea. From outside the place look very modest, and it is, that's the whole point, it is friendly and make you feel home, the food is like the one... More

Could not believe they had really good Vietnamese food in Amarillo. I had ba luc lac. Fast cooked beef with veggies. Very good. I had wanted pho but they were already sold out

We stopped in on 7/12 with 11 people (3 adults, 8 teenagers) around 1PM. Many of the teens had never had Vietnamese food before and this was a great "starter" restaurant. They had a range of authentic food and food that was easy for Americans to eat (IE: grilled chicken with rice). I had the pho and was pleased with... More

After a long drive we arrived in Amarillo anticipating a disappointing meal at a burger chain. Instead, we happily stumbled upon Saigon Restaurant. While the location along US 40 and outward appearance of the restaurant are not terribly attractive, the food served within is excellent. The menu features an extensive selection of traditional Vietnamese cuisine along with a few other... More

Stuck in the middle of a 1,500 mile move with an overnight in Amarillo we had resigned ourselves to what we thought would be a night of American chain restaurants. Craving some noodles we decided to do a quick TripAdvisor search, just in case Amarillo had a hidden gem... and boy does it ever! Saigon Restaurant has an authentic menu... More

You would never think that Amarillo, Texas might be the best Asian food you've ever eaten, but that is exactly what we found on a trip that was fraught with bad food experiences in the culinary wasteland of West Texas. Saigon is just off I-40 (easy to get off and on) and it was the best surprise of our trip.... More

The vietnamese fresh rolls are delicious. SG6 with egg noodles is awesome it has lots of fresh veggies and comes with shrimp, chicken and beef in a really flavorful sauce and is a large portion for around $11. Watch the jalepenos though as they use fresh ones and leave the seeds in so they can take you for a ride... More

I always start with the menu...is it the same old, same old...or are there things to explore? Then the Pho, it has to be outstanding to make the grade. Thankfully, Saigon Restaurant passes the mark on both!! The Vietnamese Sausage appetizer is made fresh in the restaurant (so they say), and is just delicious. 5 or 6 different varieties of... More
