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!

From the time we walked in the door til we left we felt like family. The BEST restaurant we have been to in a long time. Can't wait to go back and experience it again.

Had dinner here with my daughter who loves Pho-she gives it rave reviews. I had spicy chicken with lemongrass-just the right amount of spice -not overpowering and every bit as good as Vietnamese restaurants in a big city. The restaurant is clean, the staff is friendly, the food outstanding. They do carry out too-we will be back!

I have eaten here several times. Every time has been a wonderful experience. As a vegetarian I can find many options which is often difficult in the south. Everything is freshly prepared and they also have a large selection of beer from around the world. Saigon Cafe is s a low key place in a small strip mall. The restaurant... More

Family owned, owner greets you at the door. Genuinely a nice man who wants to please his customers. And he does whatever it takes. The whole family works there,.and they work hard! A smaller size ( which I like) contributes to the family atmosphere. I was genuinely excited to be there ( my first trip and certainly not the last)... More

The food here is quite good. We typically order a curry. We also, get a large pho to go, since it is so good. The male Asian staff is very friendly all the time!

This place is amazing! We have yet to order something we haven't enjoyed. The pho is amazing, as is the hit and sour soup. The spring rolls are light and delicious and the basil chicken is my personal favorite. If you're not sure, go for lunch. You cannot beat their lunch specials.
