Stayed at the nearby Radisson. Went to this place one night. Ordered 1. Spring rolls and 2. large bowl of pho. 1. Spring rolls were old and tasteless. They used old, browning lettuce and bean sprouts. Cost was $4 for two. no good value. 2. Pho was actually pretty good. However, portion was small compared to other Pho places I... More

Had lunch here this past week. I'm not real big on Asian food, but enjoyed my chicken with noodles and egg rolls. There were many Vietnamese people/families which leads me to believe it is authentic. I would recommend this restaurant for food and service.

First visit for us. Loved it. Fresh veggies in the noodle dishes & flavors very satisfying. Weekend specials. Vegetarian options. MUST try the avocado smoothie with tapioca pearls. (large brown) though the mango is good too. Sleek warm comfortable atmosphere a surprise given this location in a strip mall. Interior bigger & nicer than it appears from the outside and... More

Very good vermicelli bowls and pho here. And the prices are at least 20% lower than I expected after entering and seeing the sleek, modern interior and the attentive service. We've eaten at more than 20 restaurants in Madison and I can't think of a better value than Saigon Noodles.

I've been visiting Saigon Noodles pretty regularly for a couple of years. The food always made the rest of the "average" experience worth it. The service is hit-or-miss. Several people serve your table. No one checks in during your meal and when the place is busy, employees bus carts of dirty dishes around the restaurant. On my last visit, the... More

My lady and I drove to Madison to do some business last week. Asked my banker (an Asian) where he goes in Madison when he wants good Asian food and Saigon-Noodles was the answer. We went and were delighted. Got there just after their opening time on a Saturday, 11AM. Already several tables filled. We ordered Pho, a beef noodle... More

I saw good reviews on tripadvisor for this restaurant and I was staying in a nearby hotel. Let me start by saying I love Asian food and I am a vegetarian. I eat a lot of Asian food in the Southern California. I wasn't disappointed. They have a vegetarian section on their menu with 8-10 choices, great! The atmosphere is... More

We've said the same thing in Vietnames restaurants on recent travels to Seattle and San Francisco: none compared to Saigon Noodle back home in Madison. I discovered this restaurant on my first visit here years ago -- then the only place where you could get a Bahn Mi sandwich (only available for take-out) -- and since then they have doubled... More

Saigon probably offers the best bang for your buck in terms of affordable and great-tasting Asian food in Madison. It is THE best Vietnamese restaurant (okay, I've only seen two...) in the area. The standard pho noodles and vermicelli bowls are great. The spring rolls and egg rolls are equally delicious. The service is also impeccable. Saigon is a pretty... More

My family and I used to frequent the old Saigon restaurant, years ago. Loved the delicate, subtle flavors and the vermicelli noodles and had a favorite friendly waitress. Yesterday when I was in Madison, I decided to pay a visit to my old haunt. The restaurant has moved a few doors down. It's now a lot lighter and more open.... More
