Pho Ho Ho! Great Pho!

Sunday, almost noon and I'm headed to Bluffton to pick up stuff at Lowe's and Petsmart when my tummy alert goes off. I don't want fast food and I want something different...Saigon Cafe? OK, I'll try it. This great little restaurant is homey and welcoming. The menu is right up my alley...and...they... read more

I have been looking for good Japanese food and I love Pho. It was outstanding and I also ordered Spring rolls because I love them too!

My friend and I come here when ever we can get together. We always get spring rolls and pho. Top that with a bottle of wine and we are in heaven! The service is great. Everyone is always smiling! Thank you!

This is the only authentic Vietnamese food near Hilton Head - however, that's not saying much. The Pho was really bland; the broth just seemed "off." Compared to Vietnamese restaurants around where I live, this was not that good. My Vietnamese-American girlfriend, who had dinner with me, liked it even less than I did. It's certainly better than the cruddy... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always so fresh. They have an incredible selection of beer. The staff is always friendly. I bring all of my out of town guest. The calamari here is the best!

My family enjoys every visit to Saigon Cafe. The wait staff are cordial and prompt and the food is usually served very quickly and is SO tasty. Lately with the hot summer, I've been getting the cold noodle salad (both in chicken & tofu) and have enjoyed them both. The beer selection is crazy for such an unlikely place (they... More

My husband and I were here this week. The wait staff is always prompt and courteous. Food is fresh and flavorful. My husband has tried the Pho and some other things on the menu, and he is always pleased. I love #34...vermicelli noodles with cilantro and barbecue pork. This is a great alternative to your favorite Chinese restaurant.

This little place has the best Pho soup! I frequent a Vietmanese Restaurant in Boston and this Bluffton gem is as good or better! Always fresh, never salty! The stir frys are also good as well as the curried dishes. The service is great, I especially like the little Vietmanese man that greets and seats you. He is always happy... More
