“Didn't expect that in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Excellent Vietnamese soup with all the ingredients to make it special. Not much space to sit in "Saiguette" so the best bet is take-out or delivery!

“Fast delivery, good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We have had Vietnamese food delivered three times already, and it always came in less than 15 minutes! And it was good. Good beef pho. Good seafood soup. Good salmon with crispy skin.

“Tasty Vietnamese Dishes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Try the pork shoulder and grilled chicken thighs! Delish! The Bun dishes are tasty and the summer rolls are fresh! The curry dishes are too spicy for me. Loved the short ribs too! Sticky rice is good, but brown rice is better or you.

“UWS Neigborhood Vietnamese Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

For a hole in the wall with no tables only eight stools this places rocks. The food id the thing here. It is exquisite and scrumptious. The Bahn Mi (vietnames style sandwich) comes on a crusty French bread and the classic has pate and other pork cold cuts with cucumber radish and jalapeno garnish with an addictive hot sauce. The Pho is delicious and filling. The Chicken curry is rich and pairs perfectly with the stick rice. A very pleasant staff/owners? greets you and will gladly explain the food. Adjustments will be made for food allegories. The Village Voice has reviewed this place twice so it is no longer a secret. A TV food personality was taping a segment there recently. So run before it becomes impossible to get in.
