We wanted to try their pho so we took a long walk. It was not worth our efforts. Pho was no good. Vietnamese iced coffee was bad too. Sorry guys, but this place does not serve authentic Vietnamese food.

We came here after a show so it was relatively late, around 10:30pm. I imagine this place is usually pretty busy earlier in the night, especially catering for the show crowd. They quickly found us a seat and our drinks and dinners arrived in good time. The service was okay, very "matter of fact". Food was good I have to... More

My wife and I were staying at the hotel next door, we thought might as well give it a try, we were not disappointed, the staff were helpful and explained the menu to us, the meal was very good, quick service, no complaints.

This restaurant was very close to our hotel and we actually got there by mistake. The meals are of good size and they moderately priced. We especially enjoyed the Saigon soup so on our last day we returned to the restaurant for this soup again and it was not disappointing. We needed the service to be quick and it sure... More

Absolutely great fish and shrimp soup. Take the spicy one, which in fact is not spicy, but adds great flavor to the meal.

I've lived across the street for over 18 years and have been to Saigon 48 many, many times. The kitchen is obviously connected when they serve a Vietnamese 33 beer in a Thai Singha glass. Big mistake! The food is tasty, and the lemongrass chicken was acceptable, as was the Saigon Style Noodles Soup. I agree with other reviewer's that... More

Delicious asian dishes in a very colorful and warm atmosphere. Good service and I enjoy the large plates with good size food. Nice decor.

We were staying at the hotel the restaurant is attached to, so we just picked it by default for its convenience. The service was prompt and attentive. The menu selection was good and the food was very good.

The restaurant is owned by Chinese, not Vietnamese. The food tastes not Vietnamese as their pho is very untraditional flare. Food so so, very pricy. Definitely not coming back. They hold name them Hong Kong 48 instead.
