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

The stunning array of choices works up an appetite all by itself. If you're not used to the names of the dishes, their menu is genius for providing photos of every dish, plus little descriptions underneath. I'd have to return multiple times to see if the dishes differ from each other more than by the mere combination of ingredients. What... More

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
