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.

Tucked just off the main road in a corner spot this very basic eatery serves up flavorful Vietnamese dishes without much of a wait. Papa san may greet you, serve you or clean your table. Everyone smiles here, most especially the locals eating! The pho is terrific but really any of the dishes are tasty. The lunch menu has an... More

Just about everything we have eaten here has been very fresh and tasty. It's sort of like I remember eating when in Vietnam back in the late 60's but it sure does taste a lot fresher and more appealing. Service was good, very quick and the whole restaurant was very clean. We'll be back!
