very fine Vietnamese restaurant

This was a dining pleasure. First of all, I really, really like pho and Vietnamese style chicken noodle bowls. And theirs is really, really good - fresh and tasty, with pleasant presentation. Second, it's a very pleasant restaurant - quiet and classy - not the kind of place you take noisy kids... read more

Ask anyone and they'll tell you this place is great, and it isn't awful by any means. There are simply better vietnamese options in the Springs than this restaurant

Whet into Saigon cafe and ordered Bun... The Vietnamese type salad dish with grilled shrimp and rice noodles excetra. Although the order was very large it wasn't quite what I know it to be. I live in Florida and in my area there's a big Vietnamese community and they have so many of these wonderful restaurants around so it'll be... More

The restaurant was a nice experience and the food was good. I ordered the beef noodle soup and it came in a serving size that could feed 3-4 people, but it was good. The atmosphere was fine and the location is nice in downtown. Definitely a unique experience from chain restaurants.

Think very fresh, light cooking at reasonable prices. This restaurant was so well received that they expanded into the adjacent space. In the early days, you always had to wait to get a table! Well, the restaurant is now much bigger. It is a bright contemporary style. I highly recommend this restaurant as a place to meet folks over lunch... More

Ate dinner here recently. This restaurant is downtown, and convenient for folks staying in the Hilton Antlers. Be aware, though, that at night, the downtown area is a bit sketchy. Many panhandlers, folks just standing around and smoking, asking for change. Seen this many times. Keep your eyes open and don't go alone. That being said, this place is clean... More

Located in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs. Service is excellent. Food is Great, I have been to Vietnam many times and this is as close as you can get without going to the District 2 area of Saigon that I go to. The menu has something for everyone. Try the Pho special my favorite.The staff has many smiling faces... More

Service was excellent, food was unique and great tasting, the prices aren't bad either. I can always count on being taken care of when I first walk in the door, to paying the bill. Wonderful place for dinner.

This is truly a delightful restaurant run by a fabulous team of devoted people. The food is fabulous. The prices are just right, and the service is outstanding. Situated right in the heart of Colorado Springs for more than a decade now, this is an institution!!

Excellent food, cooked just right. No over- or under-cooking. Seasoned so well, I did not have to look for salt/pepper or whatever else. And of course the egg rolls that we ordered as appetizer. Oh, the egg rolls! Served with sour/salty dip, crunchy on the outside and very yummy on the inside. Normally I don't finish the meal at a... More
