The food is consistently good. The Salad rolls with peanut sauce are what I keep going back for. The place needs new furnishings and I've gone to find it closed. So call ahead. But food is always hot and good! And quick.

Went here for a quick lunch, had a dish with noodles, lemongrass chicken, egg rolls and a salad roll. It was average and not much actual substance to the food, mostly vermicelli, lettuce and shaved off cut up pieces of shrimp. The redeeming flavor was in the lemongrass chicken which was very tasty. It is a typical Asian style hole... More

Went out for lunch and was satisfied, just nothing special. Nothing makes it stand out, which may not be a totally bad thing but nothing enticed to make a return visit. Mediocre food at a decent price. Would suggest for someone wanting something different.

Very busy at lunch but well worth the wait, great pricing. The décor is something to be desired but your there for the food not the décor:)

We go here for a reasonably priced meal, that comes quickly. The food is quite good. The decor in the place needs a makeover. Very dated and can feel unclean at times.

We go here for Wor Wonton Soup - it's delicious. It's a very busy little restaurant and if you're wanting to go for lunch on Friday go early cause it's always super busy. Very good value for the money. Food is hot and tasty.

Inexpensive, quick and tasty. I don't go for the atmosphere but it's the only pho in town so this is my go-to restaurant. The servers are efficient and friendly and the food is always delicious. I tried Mekong River a few years ago and never went back. I'll stick to Saigon Garden. Don't try and get a table at noon,... More

I give Saigon 5 stars because this is the best food you will find for this price. You simply can't beat it and it stands out on it's own. quick, cheap, and tasty, if that's what you're looking for, it's an easy choice.

Pretty good Vietnamese food considering it's in Parksville! Always had the same problem of having only one server running off her feet waiting tables, bussing tables, preparing take out and being the cashier.... The server does great for one person but frankly there should be at least 2 if not more. Also closing, the owners have a jewel and they... More
