Did not realize when we walked in at 2:50 that the restaurant closed at 3 and reopened for dinner. We were treated so nice. Not rushed at all. The service was fabulous and the food as well. We'll defiantly go back.

Maybe we just dined here on an off day because the service was horrible, very slow and unfriendly staff. The food was okay, not as good as we have had elsewhere.

This is truly an excellent, outstanding Vietnamese restaurant in the area and that I've ever eaten at period. They make as good PHO as I have ever had!!!! I have been here many times, and will continue to patronize as long as they're open. I have eaten many of their dishes and everyone is always out standing. The owner is... More

Such a nice restaurant run by a young family. The pho Sate is the best I have ever had. Customer service is superb and staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Great menu and also offers takeout. Located between Bluffton and HHI so easy access From both locations

We absolutely love this place. The Pho, and other noodle soups are to die for. Huge portions, not salty, piping hot! The staff is always very welcoming. My wife and I eat here as much as 3 times a week. You can't go wrong at Saigon Cafe.

I reviewed this restaurant a couple years ago. Since then, business has really picked up but the quality of the food is still as wonderful as ever. They treat everyone as family and take extra time when they recognize their regular customers. When we first started going, there was hardly anyone at the restaurant. Last week, we had to wait...

Saigon Cafe is several notches above your typical Chinese/Asian restaurant. Our family appetizers and entrees were all superb. Fresh, tasty ingredients and complex flavors made for a wonderful dining experience. Visiting Hilton Head? Worth the very short drive off the island.

Big menu, big flavors with nice balance. Salads and soup along with entrees were less than $50, including tip. Definitely worth your visit. We'll be regulars soon!
