I ordered two dished with beef and it tasted like it was really old meat, not fresh, and I was afraid to eat it. It did not taste right.

We've eaten here numerous times and loved the flavors, quality and value. It is cramped and very much a cafe but worth it. favorites have been the Vietnamese Crepe, Claypot Catfish, Claypot Eggplant and Tofu. We've had the Saigon noodles, pho ga and Buddah roll which are all very good. This is a weeknight place for us as its too... More

My family and I ordered carryout a couple of days later, and two of my family members ordered the same dish of Saigon noodles with chicken. I thought they received the wrong order. It looked and tasted NOTHING like my lunch! It was terrible......more like chicken lo mien with... More

The food here was good. I had the vermicelli bowl with shrimp. Tasty and well seasoned. The menu is rather limited but has plenty of variety. I'll surely go back to the other dishes. My main reservation will be cost. My lunch with tea was almost $20. Ouch! !

He adds a fried egg to the top! the shaking beef is my absolute favorite - delicious tender steak with two fantastic sauces. Yum, yum, yum! The atmosphere turns some people off - it's very small, even with the recent addition... More

First time at this restaurant and won't be last! Service was wonderful and waitress made fantastic recommendations. I had the chicken vermicelli, plenty of fresh, crispy vegetables. Sauce on side was delicious. Hubby had the carmalized claypot catfish and declared it nirvana! The building and interior is not much but the food is out of this world!

I can not describe how good the food is here. It is absolutely amazing and extremely flavorful. The shaking beef is so good and tender that I can eat it several times a week. It is my favorite dish from any restaurant and I eat out quite a bit. It has even inspired me to try to make this dish... More

Went for dinner with a friend on Friday night at 7 PM, no wait and got a table right away. We got the Nam Nam rolls for appetizer which were delicious. I got the Saigon shrimp and noodles which is also fantastic. It was big portions for the price, enough for lunch the next day. They had a nice bear... More
