Lovely little Vietnamese restaurant

Just walking down the street in Grove Street, we walked in to this yummy little place. Small restaurant but big on food! I tried a homemade tamarind soda that was delish.. and shared an entree with my hubby - the randang chicken. and curry puffs. Everything was so good! Surely will go there again... read more

Fantastic Food. Really surprised as this was our first Vietnamese restaurant in NJ. We have been travelling all around NYC and were overall disappointed with the food offered there. Try this Restaurant, great service but more importantly Great Food.

we went there spontaneously for some dinner. We had excellent curries, very nicely prepared and full in flavour. Service was very friendly. We will certainly come back.

We've come here many times as it's very close to our house and have never been disappointed! The food is very tasty and the ingredients are fresh. No matter what we order it's always delicious. Last month I took several of my Italian friends who are used to travel all over Asia and they loved the dishes we got. Service... More

Saigon is one of the best places to eat in Jersey City. Food is excellent and the service impeccable. You can sometimes spot famous chefs having a meal here too. The grilled pork chop and rice is to die for!

My favorite spot in Jersey City. The Chicken and Mint Salad is delish, as well as the Summer Rolls and Rive Vermicelli !

Went here while on a trip to Jersey City. Found it scientifically.. ;o) ( I saw a pretty woman coming out the door and asked her if it was good. She said, "Best Thai in Jersey City") Very nice staff (seem to be family) and decently busy on a Sunday night. I had ordered the moon cake but they were... More

If you got to this place, I would recommend ordering GRILLED SHARK FILLET. Demand for shark meat and fins is growing now, and I would not be surprised, if trade for them were ended for a reason to protect sharks.. Do not miss your chance. I have had this shark fillet with yellow ginger sauce. The taste was great and... More
