The menu contains an assortment of Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese dishes. My family tried the Pho, Tom Yum Seafood, Pad Thai, Fried Rice, Summer rolls, crab Rangoon, and the Saigon coffee. All dishes were very good. Three atmosphere was pleasant. Maybe a little upscale for the 8-10 year old girls with us, but the service was very friendly and helpful.... More

I am never disappointed! I love this place, the atmosphere is great and the food is always on point! The service is great and never lacking. I love everything on the menu, I am a sucker for their crab Rangoons. YUM! You will love it here!

When we walked in, no one greeted us or even said “Hello” even though several staff personnel were standing around talking. The sign in middle of the walkway indicated “Seat Yourself” so we did. Our service was quick, but our sever needs to learn how to be more attentive. We ask that our food be served “spicy hot” and it... More

After driving past this restaurant a couple times a week for the past 4 years, I finally decided to give it a try. They have a great dinner special (it might be limited to weeknights tough). We had an appetizer and 2 entrees for less than $20 if I recall correctly. Delicious food and very friendly staff! I think we... More

I love this place and stop there on almost every trip to Springfield. The crab ragoon are light, crispy and heaven in your mouth. It is Vietnamese cuisine, with other Asian influences. I've tried something different every time I've been there and everything is GREAT. The staff are courteous and helpful and the only thing that is maybe a down... More

Thai beef salad was delicious. Beef wasn't nice slices but were bits/pieces. Tom Yum soup w/shrimp & pineapple was very good, a bit too sweet for our tastes, still worthwhile & a huge portion, the large serving bowl had 8 bowls of soup in it. Mongolian Beef - very pedestrian dish but tasty. Catfish w/hot chilies & lemongrass was terrific,... More

First and foremost, I consider myself a real "foodie." (I have live in New York, LA and Las Vegas and have traveled all over the world.) I have been spending a few weeks in Springfield, where there is a scarcity of "good eats." Little Saigon is a delight. It is not the most authentic Thai and Vietnamese food I have... More

We were on our way to Chicago from St. Louis. Decided to try Little Saigon while passing through Spfd. The four of us ordered different items. All were very good. Service was fine and price was reasonable.

Always consistent with their food, rice is never under or overcooked and the lunch prices are phenomenal. You get quite a bit of food for a matter of a few dollars.

The food is tasty, if you are hungry for that asian flavor, but I am used to more authentic Thai and Vietnamese restaurants. I think it is fine for mainstream. I like my Pho, and tom yom, and it tends to go a bit more on the sweet, than spicy side, even tho I ordered spicy. I think the average... More
