Its not a fancy place, but the food was really good. We were a group of 18 people and they accommodated all of us and got us food in a very reasonable time. The food was very tasty and very reasonable.

Bit of a sketchy building, but don't let that deter you. Flavorful food, friendly owner and dirt cheap prices. I'd highly recommend this place for a tasty Vietnamese meal that won't cost much.

I hate to beat up anybody who's down on there luck but I can only advise anyone to skip this PHO restaurant. Not sure what is going on but obviously the Health Department has not been to this location in years.

I'm born and raised In Fairbanks yet hadn't tried Little Saigon. Had passed by it for many years and finally decided to try it for lunch, the exterior doesn't have the dazzle of today's restaurants. We sat down and first impression it was dingy, less polished, and were going to leave but decided to be polite and give it a... More

The PHO amazing and we ordered 3 more entrees to go. You may find the place not quite up to what you would expect in America for looks... More

If you want the soup ONLY, but the rest of the dishes are not worth it. I had a chicken salad that was made with packed tyson chicken and the cook skimped on the meat. Not enough for the price. The lettuce was soggy and wilted. The sup smelled amazing but not my flavor, ONLY BEEF WAS AVAILABLE. It does... More

The Little Saigon Vietnamese Restaurant in Fairbanks is a must-visit place, if you enjoy excellent food that is well-prepared and tasty. The owner and cook is an elderly lady who does everything, and she create fabulous dishes one at a time. The fresh rolls (with yummy fillings), the BBQ pork (slightly sweet and really tasty), the noodle and rice dishes... More

It was just like other reviews had said, it appeared to be this Vietnamese woman cooking in this small shop which almost in a way seemed like her home. When she finished cooking she went back to her laptop and continued playing solitaire. We had the Chicken vermicelli, shrimp egg noodles, and spring rolls – all of which were really... More
