Saigon Kitchen was a visit on a whim the first time we visited. The food was outstanding, the service was friendly and on point. Needless to say, our first visit was not our last!

Decent Vietnamese place--I've def had better but that was in SF. Hard to come by good viet place that isn't just Pho. Bring your own beer--there's a place on the corner you can go and they let you bring it in.
