Lovely fresh food, as authentic as can be expected for central illinois. The pho is absolutely spot on; better than alot of places in London, Chicago or New York. Very friendly and efficient staff who are happy to bring out extra chillies, cilantro and basil as required. The shrimp I had in my pho were plump and juicy. My only... More

Went here for lunch. We ordered an appetizer of Crab Rangoon, and both had a lunch combo. The Crab rangoon seemed home made and was VERY good. It was the best Rangoon I'd ever had. The combos were reasonably-priced and you get a lot of food. It came with a veggie soup (Asian) which was tasty.. I had the General... More

This place has awesome thai food. Being vegeterian, i tried panag curry, singapore vermicelli & it was delicious. Not to mention that their dis presentation was also great & so their interior. And quite affordable too, about $8 each for both the dishes i tried.

Every time I come to Springfield, my friends and I immediately go to Little Saigon. It's that good. Don't be deceived by the less than stellar appearance of the building from the outside. Once you get inside and taste the food, you won't regret your choice. I especially suggest the Singapore Vermecelli, or, if you like spicy food, the red... More

I have stopped in here for lunch on several occasions and have yet to be disappointed. The menu has a little something for everyone. I've been stuck on the koo see me the last few times as it is delicious. It is quite clean and the staff is very friendly.

I went here with my mom, sister, and the kids. We each ordered either an entre or a couple of sides and shared everything. It's one of those places where you want to try everything or have multiple favorites, so it's great to do your own family style eating buffet.You also get a lot of bang for your buck. Everything...

Love Little Saigon! Good food, great service, large seating area so very little wait time. Very nice wait staff and one of the cleanest restaurants I have ever been in.

I come to Little Saigon at least 1-2 times a month for 12 years now and I have always had great food, great service, and overall great satisfaction. The food tastes and looks delicious, the restaurant is always clean and well lit for a laid back atmosphere. I highly recommend this place if you desire Thai/Vietnamese cravings!
