Inexpensive and easy on the pocketbook

We are regulars at Saigon. it is small and casual. The Pho is absolutely the best and it is healthy. The service is always EXCELLENT.

I ordered a grilled platter and asked about how it was prepared. When the meal arrived it was very greasy and not grilled. When I sent it back without eating it and ordered a different meal they charged me for both meals. When I,spoke to the owner and explained I can't eat oily food and I explained that when I... More

I had Basel Shrimp & my friends had Shrimp & vegetables, at a cost of about $10 - $12 each, we all really enjoyed them The lunch menu includes soup, egg roll and the entree. The servers really work fast and are very professional.... More

Several Asian families there when we were there, and from their familarity with the owner, they were regulars. Returning customers are always a good sign. Real Vietnamese food, with some other Asian standards available. Fresh, hot (temp), and... More

OK, I'll try it. This great little restaurant is homey and welcoming. The menu is right up my alley...and...they have great craft beer menu, too! So I... More

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.
