“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Saigon Cafe has excellent food and service, and the prices are very reasonable. It's a bit hard to find but well worth the trouble. It does not have a liquor license, but customers may bring their own beer or wine.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Perfect Pho. Not a fancy place, but comfortable and decently priced. I've enjoyed it every single time I've been there.

“Do not miss this treasure. Extraordinary !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Absolutely superb food and service at a great price. Distinct and extraordinary flavors in each dish, from the exquisite fresh spring roll to start, the amazing wonton & pork noodle soup ( an entire meal) to the vegetable fried rice and delicious spicy lemongrass seafood plate.
Many visits are in order to explore the ample menu, and you will not be disappointed.
We're taking friends there whenever we have the chance. Five Stars!

“Saigon Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

When we are looking for lunch we often head to the Saigon Cafe. The food is fresh and delicious. Service is friendly and knowledgable. Heng, the owner, will help you with the menu if needed. We love the shrimp or pork bun. The pho (soup) is very good. Also try the fresh rolls, Vietnamese pancake and rocket shrimp.

“Best Vietnamese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We discovered this restaurant on a recent trip to Hilton Head Island. I had the ginger chicken and it was delicious as was the hot and sour soup. The flavors of Vietnamese food are distinctly different from the typical "Chinese" food that we find in this country. We enjoyed it so much that we returned for a second meal a few days later even though it was some distance from our hotel. We will not visit Hilton Head again without eating at this restaurant.
