“Try the bakery also.”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We've been going to the New Saigon Restaurant almost since it was first opened. It has consistently been a delight. The food is delicious and led to our being hooked on Vietnamese eggrolls. Now, they have their wonderful bakery and deli next door and we're hooked on the Banh Mi sandwiches. Stop in for a full lunch or go next door for a Banh Mi and you'll be as hooked as we are.

“It's Alright”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Visited New Saigon for lunch upon hearing the high reviews and remarks from several friends and family members. The menu had a nice variety and the staff was friendly and good. I've eaten at many Vietnamese restaurants in the Denver area and I feel that the taste of the food was only average. However I have 2 complaints. The pork eggrolls were not cooked long enough and still uncooked in the middle. And the lettuce on the plate of sprouts, cucumbers and lettuce that they brought as a side to the eggrolls was unwashed. The backs of 3 of the large leaves of lettuce were clearly dirty and not washed off. These two things turned me and my wife off of the food there and we won't eat there again because if they can miss two little details like that, then who knows what else they arent doing correctly back there in the kitchen.

“the best”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

After a two year hiatus, we revisited New Saigon last evening. We visited these wonderful folks frequently when we lived in Denver, but now, don't get here often. We always look forward to our visits, and last evening was no different.

Our server, who has probably been here for most of the 25 years the restaurant has been open, greeted us, and said 'I haven't seen you for a long time'.

The noodle bowl is our favorite. If you have not visited this great place, order #11N, and you will not be disappointed. Of course, we have never had anything here that was even neutral, let alone a disappointment.

The service is outstanding. They had just seated a group of nearly 50, and still, our meals were served within 10 minutes of when we were seated! Can't find that kind of service most places.

All I can say, visit New Saigon for the best Vietnamese tastes you can find anywhere.

“Huge menu -- so far it's all good”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

The neighborhood seems a little iffy but step inside to find a very pleasant restaurant with top quality food and service on Denver's near west side.

“You can't go wrong”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

I was fortunate to eat here with a group of high-level foodies who just start ordering the instant they sit down. We tried at least seven dishes as well as appetizers and everything is piping hot, all the freshest ingredients and interesting combinations. The shrimp actually taste like shrimp instead of something that simply feels like shrimp. The food is bursting with flavor. The staff "gets it" and obviously gets along with many regulars dining at other tables. This is my favorite place to eat in Denver - bar none.
