Very tastefully decorated and friendly staff. Veggie and gluten-free dishes are available. Our server was not as aware of them as was another worker (who took our call). She was able to show us things on the menu and talk with the kitchen to ensure my friend, who is gluten intolerant, was taken care of. Food was well seasoned and... More

Because its local and so reasonably priced, we don't think of this little gem often enough. Our meals out are usually family gathering s in SF,but every time we visit Chez Saigon, we have great Thai food served by a very friendly staff.

Even though it is located on El Camino Real, it's easy to miss, but worth the visit. Very friendly, with tasty variety.

Great vermiccili and Pad Thai. They had a lunch menu with huge portions. (I think ours was $7.95) Tried Thai iced tea for the first time and that was good too. Nice ambiance inside- white tablecloths, but not stuffy... Wish this was closer to where we live- affordable and delicious. Would take my family here- will be back when we... More

I actaully gave this place a few tries, thinking okay maybe it was jsut an off day or a busy day. Well I'm done making excuses, they are just rude and the food really isn't that great. On this particualr visit I placed my order over the phone and hour before pick up time. So I arrive about 5 minutes... More

Both food and staff were mediocre. Restaurant was warm...it was over 90 degrees and they didn't have A/C on- just front doors open. Don't even think about asking for substitutions on the menu!

Love the food which was outstanding. My only complaint is the noise level. It was hard to hear what people at your own table were saying.
