I enjoy the food every time I go. It's a small place and very quite service. If you like noodles and rice, you should try it out.

We discovered Saigon Kitchen in December 2011...when most places were closed and the weather cold. The hot and sour soup warms up the body and soul nicely. The house and chicken pho got us hooked and we're regulars ever since. Hubby and I used to share the avocado smoothie but these days we want our own cup of smooth green... More

We have many Asian restaurants in Ithaca, NY. This is one that I particularly enjoy. Food is very tasty and fresh. The staff is friendly and efficient. The only problem I have is that it can be quite noisy.

This is a busy restaurant and understandably so; the food was terrific, and the service was good too. I especially liked the crispy tofu with vegetables. The caramelized eggplant was good, although the sauce was a little too sweet for my taste.

I have eaten at Saigon Kitchen a number of times since i live near by. I like that you can order your food according to your desired heat. I order the same thing ever time i go because i MUST HAVE that curry chicken. It is very small, so try to avoid being there during peak dining times if at... More

Small and very busy restaurant west of the Commons. The night I visited the wait was twenty minutes or so. Good food, good service. I had the Singapore Mei Fun with chicken -- quite good -- and my companion had the Crispy Tofu which she said was very tasty.
