So Good We Came Back 2 More Times

We spent a long weekend in Ithaca over the fourth of July weekend. This was really the best food that we had in the area. We ate dinner at the restaurant once. We loved it so much that we went back for take out two more times. Great value and very fresh ingredients. I can see why this place is... read more

I had never been to the restaurant before, but loved the food. The golden crunchy noodles with chicken was great. My only complaint was that the restaurant was very noisy.

I had heard good things about the Saigon Kitchen and finally ate there this week. It's not in the most beautiful part of town but I had no trouble finding a place to park because I arrived at 11:45. By noon the restaurant was packed. My friend and I shared a delicious shrimp dumpling appetizer. She had the hot and... More

Small place with big food!! Love to the food here! Third time was the charm. It is crowd, so if crowds bother you, this is not the place but for us the food is always worth it!

Best Vietnamese food you will find in Ithaca and best fried squid ever! Coming from NYC, can't say this place has the best pho (since there's thousands of viet places in the city) but it is still very good. The fried squid is the best I've ever had, and I still have yet to find another restaurant that makes it... More

We've eaten several times here over the past year. We really enjoy all the pho varieties. The few times we've ordered other entrees we weren't all that impressed. Except for the wonderful crispy squid appetizer. Always busy but you get seated quickly. Service is what you might expect in a busy restaurant. We've always been treated well.

It got good reviews, so we popped in for lunch. Very crowded. The food was just okay (in fact, my friend asked for no peppers, but her meal arrived with them). Service was poor. Took forever to get the check...or even catch someone's attention. And we didn't even send the food back with the peppers.

The food was so good we ate here twice during my short stay. Service is fast and professional and there is a vast choice of options. We enjoyed the vegetarian pho and vermicelli and shared a vetetarian rice and lemon grass dish on our next visit.
