Good Vietnamese food noodle (Pho, Pat Thai) and Fried rice

Most of time we visited this place either for late lunch or early dinner. The place usually packed/crowed, I think because of they have good food.

We had an appetizer (soup) and two mains (noodle dish and stir fry). The portions were more than enough for my boyfriend and myself but when we saw the meals come out for the communal meal for employees (we ate there near close) we wanted to switch tables ;) my only complaint so they rushed out our order and we...

We stopped at Saigon Kitchen for Lunch on first day of our visit to Ithaca and came back for Dinner on last day of our visit! We had one of their Lunch specials! It was a good meal and pretty cheap. For dinner there was a queue as they don't take reservations but it was 2 of us so we... More

Again made a stop of the top rated eateries while visiting Cornell, Saigon Kitchen is a must see for anyone considering going to school in town who cares at all about dining. Our visit was quite satisfactory and I found myself ordering several entrees to get a better sampling of the cuisine. I was impressed with the food quality and... More

We picked up some take out and enjoyed it on the deck of our vacation rental. Food was very well-prepared and menu was extensive.

Yes, Saigon Kitchen has delicious food! But don't expect anything special in the way of atmosphere or service. The restaurant is small and does not take reservations. We did not have to wait long at all for our table which was a wobbly one and could not be fixed. We were able to move to a different table after a... More

This is a no-frills, family-owned and operated restaurant with pleasant staff, great food, and, if you go at peak times, a line of people waiting to be seated. That last point tells you a lot because this town has LOTS of restaurants and people only bother to wait in line for very good food. The main challenge when visiting Saigon... More

The reasonably priced menu offers a variety of Asian cuisines - from traditional Vietnamese to Thai to Chinese. The lemon basil sauce to which one can add chicken, beef, shrimp or tofu is a particular favorite. The hot and sour soup is also delicious and filled with vegetables as are all dishes. A minor negative is lunchtime plating (sloppy) and... More

A good range of typical Vietnamese restaurant items and some leaning to the Chinese. Good service and a pleasant dining room.
