Freshest Shrimp Springrolls as well as a delicate and crispy crab ragoon. All the meals are lightly seasoned and contain an abundance of fresh vegetables. A must try are the freshly made fruit smoothies . With or without the tapioca . I had mine without. The have value meals at lunch and supper for under $20 for two people!

I went here quite often when I still lived in Springfield. Their soups get five stars - they're very tasty. The rest of the food varies from sub-par to very good depending on what you get. Besides the soups my favorites were Spicy Glass Noodle and the Crazy Noodles. There are better places in Springfield, but you won't be disappointed... More

Ever since it opened, Little Saigon has been one of those "default favorite" type restaurants, on the occasions when we want to go out to eat, but can't settle on exactly where to go. As soon as that suggestion pops up, it's immediately "Yes! Let's go." The menu is so extensive, it's almost a little intimidating at first (if I... More

I am allergic to onions, and they prepare my food without onions, which means it is freshly prepared. The food is delicious. They also have a watermelon freeze that is incredible.

Although we reached for a late lunch, they welcomed us,and served us with good Thai food, the culture appeared to be Vietnamese, but the quality of English was very much Amecan. vegetarian noodles were awesome.

My wife, son and I drive through Springfield fairly often while visiting family, and have made Little Saigon a regular stop. My wife gets the Pad see Iew and I've had their curry noodle and a "crazy noodle" dish. All have been quite tasty and their crab Rangoon is excellent. The service is very fast and friendly. Overall a fantastic... More

Great pad thai! They have a nice selection of Asian dishes from Thailand, China and Japan. The service was fast and friendly. Recommend giving it a try if you're in the area.

I gave this place a chance, and I'm glad I did. To be fair, I've only eaten the Mongolian beef and chicken, and chicken satay. Those two items are definitely delicious. It's helpful that they have a picture menu so you know what to expect. The portions are generous, and the cost is quite reasonable. I always aim to try... More
