“Hole in the wall with great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a locals place, well frequented at lunch. Value is good, food is plentiful and mom and pop work quickly in a busy visible kitchen.
So not a fancy place, but it gets the job done, with extensive menu and large service for a reasonable price. On street parking. Take out.

“Hot, flavourful, delicious meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

I hadn't been to Saigon Garden for several years and today my bf and I decided to go out for lunch. So glad we did! The place has been updated, new flooring and decor. But most importantly, the food is as great as ever and so reasonably priced!

We both ordered the Spicy Tofu Stir Fry and it arrived, piping hot with lots of tender-crisp veggies, rice and the savoury sauce which results from the cooking process. Along with a pot of green tea, it was a filling meal.

“Fantasic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This place has great food, i love the hot and sour soup as well as the chicken hotpot, salad rolls are also very good. The waitress speaks limited english but is always very helpful. The food is served very quickly. They are almost always very busy and only have one waitress, Im always amazed at how she is able to do it all. If your looking for fancy then dont bother, but if your looking for great food then come here, just dont have the crispy chow mein cause its just uncooked chow mein noodles, unless you like that sort of thing.

“My go to place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

The Saigon Garden is so quick at making meals that are delicious. You can eat in or take out. The restaurant is a very popular place for locals and visitors. Because they serve the food quickly they can feed many people in a short time period. If you want to eat in for lunch or dinner though, be sure to get there early enough to get a seat. The prices are great and the selection of dishes is quite extensive. I have tried many of their selections and have never been disappointed.
