Wor Wonton Soup

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

Good ,cheap, fast. Can be crowded at lunch but the table turnover is fast like the service. Combo 29 and the seafood chowmein stand out.

This is a low key Vietnamese lunch establishment. Lunches are consistently the same. I like the lemongrass chicken. You get good value here if your looking for a bite under $15 bucks.

I like the food here, but it's a pretty dingy place. The prices are good though. Personally, I far prefer Mekong River, down towards the orange bridge and across from the Chrysler dealer. Their food is fantastic, but you will pay more. You actually do get what you pay for in this instance.

Saigon Garden is one of those places where you just have to go to - to experience the food for yourself! It is very good - my favourite is the Wor Wonton Soup - enjoyable anytime! Super busy during the lunch rush however take out is available. Food is served very quickly here as well so if you are in... More

Very modest décor, very quick lunch for an excellent price. Large menu of common Vietnamese food. Service is good, but not well staffed. If you are looking for a quick cheap healthy lunch this restaurant is a must.
