Saigon Kitchen Curry: Heaven on a plate!

After chocolate, a curry dish is my favorite food, so I try curries at every restaurant I go to that offers them. The Saigon Kitchen Curry was truly heaven on a plate. FABULOUS! We were there on a week night, but the place was packed. I could definitely see why. The food is wonderful, the... read more

I had a vegetable curry stir fry that was to die for. The place is clean, small, and has a varied clientele. The waiter was quick. We both had a bubble tea with tapioca. Coconut was very tasty. The two women at the table next to ours, asked what we were eating and when we told them, they ordered the... More

I love ordering from here and dining in. The food is always delicious. Spacing is an issue so expect to possibly wait. If not for the wait or lack of delivery, I would give this a 5 star.

Now this restaurant is styling. First, this place is jam packed all day every day. But not all is lost, from a line 10 patrons deep to seating is less than 5-7 minutes! Ordering to serving is even less! I mean this place is beyond organized and expeditious! As for the food... Wow! This place is yummy! We had 2... More

The restaurant was busy, but the wait wasn't very long. The food was great. We tried a variety of food - pho, noodles, appetizers, etc.. and it was all well presented, tasty and reasonably sized portions. The service was friendly and efficient. Will certainly try to return on our next visit to Ithaca.

Best tasting food in Ithaca. Try the Singapore noodles in a curry sauce or the basil and lemon grass stir fried vegetables.

It's fantastic! We had the pho and the crispy squid. Amazing! The building is small but the service is fast and friendly. It's always packed when ever I've been there which is a testament to the quality of the food.

Just had dinner tonight there and it was over expectation! Service was super fast, food was fresh and delicious and a lot to eat!! The price is more than reasonable and the place was very crowded for a Wednesday! Next time I'll stop by Ithaca, I will definitely come back here!!

The menu is filled with wonderful, typical Vietnamese offerings. All of the food we had was delicious (crispy squid, beef stew pho and pork rice platter). All of the servers were efficient and very friendly. My only complaint is the open kitchen concept, so I smell like grease and now have to go home to change all my clothes.
