Real deal and really good

Authentic Vietnamese and Thai food, but I highly recommend the former. The pho was terrific and made to order. Pro-tips - ask for the peanut sauce to dip the beautiful, delicate spring rolls in and you can ask for little fat in the pho if you so desire. Incredibly reasonable prices for fresh and... read more

We found the food disappointing, not as good as several Vietnamese restaurants we regularly eat at. The peanut sauce for the spring rolls is a strange combination of peanut sauce and sugar syrup. The vermicelli in the vermicelli bowls has a strange flavor.

I had the Vietnamese Spring Rolls and Pho with Rare Beef W/Shrimp. All was very good and well worth the price. Food and Service are both excellent, building itself needs some work but hopefully if they keep getting these reviews they will make plenty enough money to remodel. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place....

This is the real deal for authentic Vietnamese food. We started with the egg rolls, which were delicious. After that, my husband ordered Pho with brisket, which was outstanding. I opted for the grilled chicken, which was equally good. We will definitely return!

Decided to finally come try Saigon Restaurant on the East Bound I40 frontage road off Paramount. Has the gyoza, summer roll with BBQ pork, basil fried rice and vermicelli bowl with grilled pork. Everything was awesome. Come and try it!!

This is a very aromatic soup, very good in size, although ligth to the stomach. It has 6 delicious dumplings plus the rice noodles are very good. The combination of all ingredients is balanced and awesome to taste

This is the place for a great authentic experience... Very well presented plates with flavors that are carefully balanced. This vietnamese family are really sharing their culture on the table and through their very friendly staff. Definitely a must when you are in Amarillo!!

The pho was simply fantastic. Great flavor, superb presentation, and politely served. Vietnamese egg rolls and salted lemonade (like a margharitta without alcohol) were also great. The staff was attentive and the food came out quickly. Can't really say anything bad, except that the Coors sign is a bit tacky amongst the other nice decor.

Pho as quite good and at under $9 a good value. Staff were pleasant, not much atmosphere, looks like they're operating on a shoe string.
