“Very good Pho!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Tonight has been my second time in Little Saigon. Their Pho is really good and with 10€ for a bowl with two topping definitely very well priced for the centre of Amsterdam. Only point of criticism: I would have liked some free tap water, especially after ordering two regular (and delicious!) home-made drinks from the menu.
I'll be back!

“Excellent streetfood”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

For those who have been to Asia, this place works like a hawker stall: only a few dishes, with some variations, but definitely excellent and very affordable prices. The satays are superb, the best we've had outside of Singapore/Malaysia: marinated, grilled meat, and not fried & drowned in peanut sauce like most places across Europe. The spring rolls and Pho are also very good, and don't miss the coffee with condensed milk!

“Awesome food at a reasonable price!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

My boyfriend and I had a Holland Pass and by dining at Little Saigon, they will give a complementary vegetable rice rolls which was savory. We ordered the specialty Vietnamese rice noodle soup called "Pho". The portion was generous. As they have many different meat in the soup, we would expect the soup to be pungent with the meaty smell. To our surprise, the meaty smell was masked by the very distinctive herbs smell and a hint of lemon but still retaining the chewy and juicy texture of the meat. The waitress who served us was very friendly and it didn't take them a long time to serve the food. So in conclusion, if you're looking for great food with reasonable price and portion yet looking for good service and ambient atmosphere but don't mind the limited choices then this would be the perfect place for you.

“Great value lunch”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

A nice little place that is very clean and a pleasant environment. The food prices are considerably lower than any of the other Asian restaurants in the vicinity. I've never eaten Vietnamese food before so was a bit surprised by the cold noodle dish but I'm sure this is the way it's meant to be. The dish itself was very plain with no sauce or seasoning - just noodles, plain grated veg, spring rolls and your meat/prawn/tofu selection - so you spice it up with the bottled sauces on your table. So whilst it was cheap, I'm not sure they could get away with charging any more. Nice service, pleasant waitress. Not hurried out of the door after our meal. Restricted choice of meals but not a problem if you're only visiting once.
