Been a while since I've been here, maybe a year. In San Diego, going to a "nice" Vietnamese restaurant isn't so common. Why pay more for something that probably tastes better elsewhere right? But! Saigon on Fifth, though it costs more than the average San Diego Vietnamese restaurant, is quite delicious. You're paying for both the food and the ambiance. Is it worth it? I think so. The service was great and the my picky Vietnamese palate approves! If you never had Vietnamese food before, this would be a good place to start. Parking in this neighborhood of Hillcrest can be tough so save some extra time to find parking.
