Excellent food

We love Little Saigon and have gone here for many years. The Pho is excellent, as are the soft rolls and the fried rolls. My favorite is the hot and sour chicken soup -- quite different from the Chinese version. Nice casual atmosphere and family service.

We've been going here for years (see prior excellent reviews), but the last few times the food was not good. I don't mean in the preparation, I mean in the freshness. You could literally smell the shrimp (stinky) when the delivered soft rolls to the table. The beef strips were looking green and tasted old. Pick up orders were left... More

The food is not as good as I hoped but the environment is nice. It's not what you think from looking at the outside of the building. The menu is more extensive than other Vietnamese restaurants in the area and much more quaint if you want to go there on a dinner date.

This is the best Vietnamese place ever. We ordered takeout for the family and the owner was very helpful recommending dishes for us, and she even explained how we should eat it before wrapping it up. The food was amazing, it is the most authentic place I've ever been in the states. Definitely my favorite restaurant in Dayton area!

Been going to Little Saigon for years. It is not close to our house, but we go out of our way 4 or 5 times each month to eat there. Great tasting food an service. Reasonable prices. As far as not taking credit cards anyone who finds fault has never had a business which used credit cards. They drive up... More

this place has always had great food and still does. they have decided to not take credit cards because it costs them too much. I think taking only cash will slow down the business and may cost them more then taking credit cards.

It's hard to find decent veggie Vietnamese food, at least where I live, so my husband and I were happy to find this place while visiting the Dayton area. They offer several pages of vegetarian options including meal sized soups, salads and many dishes made with veggie chicken and veggie beef (seitan). We love the marinated mushrooms and tofu in...

Have been here for dinner many times but didn't bother to write a review until today because they really went out of their way last night to make sure my friend was happy with her soup. We all ordered soup but my friend asked for hers with no spice. The waitress assured her that if it was too spicey she... More

This place is busy, busy. The food is fresh and the soup is slurpy good. Don't order the super hot soup unless you tell the wait staff to bring a pitcher of water. Prices are low and the staff really aims to please.

My brother (who lives locally) recommended this and we loved it! Small place and very no frills, but food and service was outstanding! I understand why my family eats here once a month!
