Came here for the first time in June with my boyfriend, we had terrific service even though it was busy and my pad Thai was great and his duck entree was yummy. We recommended family members to go, however they returned with different impressions. They said the service was awful and food was just ok. Our first time was so... More

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The food was very good, the service was friendly and there were lots of great choices. I had the hot and sour soup to start, which was delicious. I got the "small cup" and it was twice as much as I could eat. I ordered the vegetarian pad Thai and... More

We hadn't been to Saigon City in at least 4 years as we had a few disappointing meals. Well that has certainly changed. Our waitress was wonderful, along with the other staff members. Our appetizers came out in a timely manner, as well as our entrees. Everything was perfectly cooked, even the squid, which most kitchens overcooked. I was pretty... More

Even if it's not absolutely authentic, I like the food at Saigon City. Pad Thai is one of my favorites, though the ingredients often seem pretty Americanized. The service is good, the ambiance is comfortable (if a little odd: it is set in a 1710 Colonial house) and the food is satisfying.

First visit to this restaurant, delightful resorted historic home. Warm and inviting atmosphere, attentive, friendly staff, very good food at reasonable prices. Not gourmet but much better than take out and strip mall places. Summer tools and miso soup for starters were excellent. Duck special and chicken with cashew nuts were tasty, cooked to perfection and good sized. Will definitely... More

Saigon City is still serving tasty, satisfying pan Asian food, The pad thai is very good, even if it might not be absolutely authentic. Drinks are good, service is pleasant, the dining room is cozy and warm.

Just ate here today and I gotta say remarkably impressive. We first noticed the atmosphere and decor, just top notch. Lots of really interesting art, colors, flowers, etc and set in an old house type of feel. Awesome hardwood floors. The server was excellent. Very attentive. The food. Oh man. The food was just great. Party of 7 and we... More

Expensive for mediocre food. Service was good but food did not meet expectations. Wish it was more authentic, and it used to be much better. Not sure if the chef changed, also do not expect to see a Gelato place outside.

We have had dinner several times, once last week. The food is delicious, the menu offers a wide range of choices. We always leave happy. Its not fancy, its not pretentious, its just genuine and good. It fill up quickly after 7:30. We look forward to going back.

Thank Umele
