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

Our family group was scoping out potential wedding rehearsal dinner locations. My partner had found Little Saigon in a web search, and since we both enjoy various Asian cuisines, we decided to check it out. The building is unprepossessing from the outside, but the delicious odors hit you as soon as you open the door. On the inside, the restaurant... More

My son and I ate off the lunch menu. The food was very good. Service was quick and efficient and I could not believe the price. The restaurant was very clean and nicely decorated. We will definitely eat here again.

When I'm in Springfield, I stop here. It looks like a hole in the wall, but once inside, very charming. The staff is great and the food better! The crab rangoon is so light and crispy that I could make a meal just out of them, but then, I'd miss the wonton soup and main dishes. I like spicy and... More

You can't go wrong here. There's definitely a wide variety of food on the menu and we've tried many of them. We are never sorry. Plus we love that they happily accommodate our gluten and msg free diet restrictions. I also love that the servers all seem quite familiar with the ingredients of the dishes. One of our favorite restaurants!

My girlfriends and I were visiting Springfield this weekend and they had never tried Thai food. Our hotel, Staybridge Suites, recommended this restaurant. This was the best food. So delicious and reasonably priced. We all ordered a separate dish with the spring rolls and peanut sauce and shared. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy Thai food.

The drab exterior has kept me from going to this place but a Vietnamese friend spoke highly of it. It was delusions. We ordered three appetizers, had the veggie soup and two noodle dishes. It was the best Thai I have had in central Illinois. We have gone back twice now. The lunch special was $6.95 and included an egg... More
