“Consistent excellence!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

You cannot go wrong with Saigon Bistro! We always start with BOTH the spring AND the summer rolls (we get the shrimp version). Both appetizers are perfectly prepared and absolutely fresh and delicious. I am very partial to the lettuce wraps for dinner, and I also love the noodle salad with grilled pork. Tonight I tried the chicken with broccoli over rice and, like everything else, it was perfect. Hahn is our favorite server - she is particularly sweet and has an incredible memory for what we had the last time we were there. However all the servers are very kind and extremely attentive - we have never had anything but the very best service. The owner is often present, I always think that's a good sign, and she can be observed chatting with customers, coaching and encouraging the staff, and helping out here and there - a real focus on customer service! Do not hesitate to go there for a quick, freshly prepared and delicious meal!

“Tasty and authentic!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Well prepared dishes, served timely. Clean and modern restaurant. Love it and am returning quite often now. Excellent place to have a very decent meal before going to the movies or the Brass Tap!

“Better than ever!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Saigon Bistro may be my home away from home! The food is delicious and fresh while the staff was friendly and sweet! Their "pad Thai" style rice noodles are delicious and If you haven't had their chicken lettuce wraps, you're missing out! Their boba teas are delightful! It's a sweet dessert drink but if you don't like too sweet (like myself) you can always ask for less sugar and make it over ice (which has green tea) as a healthier alternative! This is the go to place for a mouth watering meal and a different experience than just your average burger or fast food joint! Quick service makes it easier for customers who are on a work break as well. Their t-shirt describes it best: fine dining, fast!

“Great choice for Asian food lovers”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Very good food. The selection is very good, from pho to curry. I ate the vegetable spring rolls and the red curry with chicken. Both tasted fresh and were well spiced. The dipping with the spring rolls was excellent and the sauce with the entree was excellent. This is more of a casual restaurant and would be a great take-out spot.

“Best Pho soup and rolls!!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

The quality of food at this place is fantastic! The service is always great and the owners show a great deal of care in their customers' experience. I'm a big fan of Pho soup and have ordered it at various restaurants from Orlando to Tampa and this place by far has the best!
