“If only for the soup”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

If you want the soup ONLY, but the rest of the dishes are not worth it. I had a chicken salad that was made with packed tyson chicken and the cook skimped on the meat. Not enough for the price. The lettuce was soggy and wilted. The sup smelled amazing but not my flavor, ONLY BEEF WAS AVAILABLE. It does have that "whole in the wall" charm and there was plenty of great reviews but not enough for me to return. The spring rolls were the best for me…….

“Grandma's sunday dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I was very pleased to choose this place to eat, on the outside it looked like if it was closed, on the inside it was like going to visit grandma, ms. Mai (the owner) is a very sweet lady and her food taste delicious, I had brisket and flank Pho, if you are looking for a super fancy place to eat this is not the place, but if you miss your grandma's food, you must come to thia place!!!!

“Amazing food in a cozy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The Little Saigon Vietnamese Restaurant in Fairbanks is a must-visit place, if you enjoy excellent food that is well-prepared and tasty. The owner and cook is an elderly lady who does everything, and she create fabulous dishes one at a time. The fresh rolls (with yummy fillings), the BBQ pork (slightly sweet and really tasty), the noodle and rice dishes -- we devoured and enjoyed it all. We were even treated to a free dessert of sweet watermelon (!). Portions were very large, and the prices were very reasonable -- far more so than most of the other Asian restaurants in town. The setting is quite homey and un-fancy, and because the owner prepares every dish by herself, being unhurried and relaxed will help you to have a great dining experience here. Little Saigon is now our #1 favorite eatery in Fairbanks!

“What a surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

It was just like other reviews had said, it appeared to be this Vietnamese woman cooking in this small shop which almost in a way seemed like her home. When she finished cooking she went back to her laptop and continued playing solitaire. We had the Chicken vermicelli, shrimp egg noodles, and spring rolls – all of which were really good. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food and we were very happy campers. Would definitely return. Recommended if you like reasonably priced Vietnamese food.
