Springfield Favorite - A Must!

Try the Panang Curry or Green Pad Curry. The smoothies are excellent - strawberry cheesecake!...strawberry kiwi and coconut are great if you want something less like a dessert. The Tomato Pepper Beef is very good as well. Lunch specials 12-2:30.

Several people recommended me to Little Saigon, so my husband and I decided to go there for lunch.We ordered Singapore Vermicelli and Beef Fried Rice. The Vermicelli was O.K., but the Fried Rice was very bland. The vegetables soup that came with it was pretty bland, the veggies were overcooked. I also ordered Lyches Freeze, it was very good, I...

If you like Thai food you won't be disappointed. Large variety of dishes, good spices and you can dial the heat up as much as you like. Good, attentive service.

Little Saigon is the best Asian restaurant in the Springfield area. They have a large selection of selections of Thai and other Asian dish. The fried rice is very good

This is my favorite restaurant in Springfield. I ALWAYS get the tofu pad Thai because it's amazing. I've tried their General Tso's chicken too and it's way better than your average take out. Definitely a must try if you're in the mood for that kind of food. It's almost never busy, but getting in and out can be a pain... More

The food here is consistently good, well-prepared, with good service in a pleasant atmosphere. We always drop in whenever we're in Springfield.

We eat out Vietnamese food a bit in Chicago and this would be considered average to just below average in Chicago. However, the dishes that we had here were not that bad if our expectations had not been set so high by the reviews. The peanut sauce for the spring rolls was good, but the rolls were less tightly wrapped... More

We were traveling and Springfield was our central meeting place for several carloads of hungry derby girls. Though this place is very small, they were able to seat all 24 of us together and everyone loved the food that they got. I've eaten here before and will again!

Our favorite place to eat. Hot and sour soup is amazing. The service and the food are worth the trip. Very friendly staff. Portions are very nice sized. Enough to share

We atopped in for lunch on a Saturday. It was not busy at 11:30, but by 12:15 it was packed. And for good reason! This place offers excellent food, and everyone we interacted with was friendly and courteous. I got Thai Red Curry, and my wife got Sesame Chicken, fried rice, and an eggroll. I sampled hers, and everything was... More
