Don't let the service keep you away - you specifically are not being the target of perceived rudeness

Saion Le is a really good Vietnamese restaurant. Their pho (beef - chicken soup does not evoke a pho experience) is one of the best pho anywhere. The broth is packed with savory flavors from beef, anise, basil, and other herbs and spices. Other dishes are great too - catfish in a clay pot, spring... read more

The plaques on the wall said it all. Saigon Le had been chosen as the Best Vietnamese Restaurant in Memphis not only once, but a few times. I looked for my favorite dish Beef Stew Wonton Noodle Soup. They didn't have it in the menu, even though the menu had a bunch of stuff I never hear of before. I... More

Sesame fish, Ginger tofu, beef pho, Saigon egg rolls. .... the list goes on! We used to eat at Pho Vietnam on Poplar, but was disappointed when they shut down without warning! Please, EAT HERE!

Read other reviews and still tried this place. Went at lunch and it was very good. service was a little slow but was adequate. Had the egg rolls and tried one of their soups. I will be back and hope I get the same quality.

Maybe because we went there late at night, the waitress was in a bad mood. She was not very friendly at all, and on top of that, I didn't like the food I ordered: the chicken was rubbery and tough.

As I was excited to try vietnamese food, I wont choose this place again because the waitress is very rude. And the food was...BLAND. I had the spring rolls, they were TERRIBLE. The shrimp should have given the roll taste, but the shrimp had obviously been boiled to death because they had absolutely no taste. The Pho soup (i had... More

Went back for another taste after being out of area for over a year - so looking forward to returning. Well, I do not know what happened to the once friendly, caring, delightful place I looked forward to revisiting. The service was abrupt, the food flavor just so-so. I had the best experience paying my bill (did I really say... More

Pho is great here, with herbs fresh from the garden in the back.

if you are a fan of lettuce wraps or using greens to wrap your eggrolls, this is the place. pineapple lemongrass tofu also fantastic. don't expect cheerful service and you'll be pleased ;)
