“Get your Pho on”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We frequent this place fairly often and have never been disappointed. You really can't go wrong with anything you might order here. The soups are delicious, the noodles, rice and hot-pots are all very good. Service is excellent and the waitstaff is quite friendly and helpful. If you are on a salt-restricted diet, they can also help you out there by fixing things with no sodium and no MSG. If you need a little afternoon pick-me-up, try the Vietnamese coffee.

“Good Vietnamese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

The Saigon Cafe is a good selection for Vietnamese food. The service is quick and the dishes are well-presented. I had the pork chops which were cooked more fully than one would expect in European cuisine, but to good effect given the difference in technique. They were very good. Generally, Vietnamese cuisine seems to have a finesse that gives some of the dishes an alluring subtlety.

“Our very favorite Vietnamese place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We love the noodles. We love the spring rolls. We love the fried tofu and the salads and meats. We consider this place a comfort food and go here 1 to 2 times a month. If you go there when it is really busy you will have a long wait... and its worth it... just try to go there when its not a lunch or dinner rush. The owner is a really nice person, and the wait staff is knowledgeable. We love this place and definitely recommend it!

“Pho”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

My daughter loves Pho unfortunately there aren't too many restaurants in NM to satisfy her cravings but we stumbled onto Saigon the other day when we were shopping at CVS. It was packed so we got some pho to go. My daughter loved it so we're going to be regular customers.

“delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I have been visiting Saigon Cafe for approx 8 years now. Every time I order the food is fast hot and delicious, the portions are generous and I always leave satisfied. If you like consistency, I highly recommend Saigon.
