If you are a Cornell student, you definitely need to try this restaurant cause this is one of the best restaurants in Ithaca and you know you don't have many options, haha! I always order house special and crispy squid ! Try it

With a wide & plentiful variety of East Asian restaurants in Ithaca, Saigon Kitchen stands out among the crowd. Its Vietnamese cuisine is mouth watering and the genuine article. The staff is friendly & the place is always packed. The prices are reasonable, but its the delicious food that truly stands out.

Even though the restaurant was understandably very busy and quite noisy, it didn't detract from the excellent service & delicious food. All of the amazing flavors! Very reasonable prices. Can't wait to go there again!

My wife and 3 young kids and I wanted to dine in after driving for several hours visiting from Toronto. The place was packed! 5 servers and an order taker. Take out order took 20 minutes which is a little longer than expected but the food was fresh and even for takeout was presented nicely in the containers. Authentic taste.... More

We were on the waiting list for a table but were overlooked while waiting outside. Service continued to be a struggle while we were brought what was one of the most delicious Vietnamese meals I've ever had. I am often wary of southeast Asian cuisine because of the abundance of fish sauce, not because I don't like it, but because... More

A very nice menu of Vietnamese, Chinese and Thai specialties. The pho is the main attraction but the luncheon specials, not as generous are quite good as well.

Although not the quality you would find in a restaurant of its kind in a major american city, the food is credible enough to satisfy a basic hunger lunch. The prices are reasonable and the staff very welcoming.

We enjoyed dinner there last night. It's walk ins only. No reservations and BYO. The only disappointment was that although we ordered starters, appetizers and entrees all arrived at once. Some of the dishes seemed more Chinese than Vietnamese but the food was fresh and very tasty The Vietnamese salad and was nice and crisp and the seafood "Pho" was... More

Have people not had authentic Vietnamese food? We stopped in for lunch, based on the reviews. While they were able to bring out our shrimp dumpling appetizer quickly to sate my son, our dishes were atrocious! No flavor...very Americanized. We won't be back.
