I love their delicious banh mi sandwiches. It's quality and quantity for a great price. I often buy 5 and get 1 free. I live in Bethesda and would often go to Silver Spring for Saigonese banh mi.

Dropped in for a super late lunch and wanted just enough to tide me over for a dinner with my wife. The friendly gent at the counter suggested a chicken sandwich. Though skeptical, I agreed and got a 33 Vietnamese beer to wash things down. Both were excellent! The sandwich was filled with crunchy fresh vegetables and nicely SPICED chicken... More

I live in Wheaton and it boasts of a number of great dining spots. The Saigonese is a welcome change from the places that specialize in the Vietnamese soups. They do have their Pho noodle and vegetable soups which are great but the menu is much more varied. They also have a wide variety of Banh sandwiches, the classic Vietnamese... More

My husband and I were visiting family in Silver Springs and they told us we had to get some Banh Mi sandwiches from Saigonese. My sister-in-law and I called ahead (this is a must since they will sometimes run out of the fresh baked rolls for the sandwiches) and ordered several varieties. I have to say, these were some of...

This understated Vietnamese restaurant in Wheaton has a traditional Vietnamese and American Asian cuisine. While displaying old musical instruments and Asian artwork on the walls with faint soothing music in the background, this restaurant provides delightful ambience. With beer and wine by the glass one can enjoy a couples evening out. Please make no mistake this is a family-friendly restaurant.... More

This is a small family owned Vietnamese restaurant in the Wheaton (Silver Spring), Md area just a block and a half from the Westfield Shopping Mall in Wheaton. The food is excellent and authentic. My husband and I love to get the rice vermicelli with charcoal grilled pork and imperial roll. The imperial rolls here are the real thing, not... More

I come here all the time for Banh Mi, which are Vietnamese sandwiches. The ones I order are all the grilled meat sandwiches, chicken, pork, beef. They are spectacular! The crunchy bread, the marinated meat and the veggies. I've tried them elsewhere, but think these are the best I've had. They also have a full service menu which includes Pho... More

I think (?) this restaurant has gone through multiple ownership changes. A few years ago when we first discovered it, the menu was extensive and the food quite good. Then it steadily declined and barely had anything more than sandwiches. Now it seems to be on the upswing again with a full menu. We've been twice recently and were happy... More

We were in the neighborhood and just walked around until we found something that looked good. Saigonese more than delivered. In addition to an entire section of $3 bahn mi, they had a full menu of all your Vietnamese favorites. For $14, the sampler appetizer was a bargain: shrimp toast, curry fried chicken, goi cuon, fresh spring rolls, and slices... More

6 banh mi for $15 on fresh bread- need I say more? Really excellent. Well worth a stop. No atmosphere. Service is fine, but value is tremendous.
