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

We dine at Little Saigon at least once a week. They have a weeknight special that includes an appetizer, and two entrees for $16.99, which is usually enough for lunch the next day. Everything is fresh and always served hot, and full of flavor. Our favorite appetizers are the summer rolls, shrimp tempura, and crab rangoon. For entrees the Panang... More

After a day of Lincoln sight seeing, I was hungry for Vietnamese summer rolls. Saw this restaurant listed in the Springfield brochure. A little drive west and we were there. Wonderful summer rolls with sesame sauce. I had pad Thai and husband had chicken fried rice (his usual oriental dish). Both were outstanding. Really wish we could come back many... More

I lived in Springfield for two years while in grad school - Little Saigon was one of the few bright spots during my time there. I ate here almost once a week, sometimes twice a week. I loved the sweet & sour tofu and the pineapple dish tofu the best. The spring rolls are great also. Whenever I am back... More

I travel to Springfield regularly and have some good asian food, but this place is great. The rangoon is so light and crisp, made with crab, cream cheese and cilantro. I also had a green curry which was very good. I didn't eat at the restaurant, I took it back to the hotel, but the staff was very nice to... More
