I was in Decatur GA to begin a road trip to Long Island NY and noticed this restaurant in a strip mall. Having spent many months in Vietnam over the last 6 years and being a devotee of Vietnamese cuisine I had to give the Saigon Café a visit and I was not disappointed. Of course it is not the same as I eat in Hue, Saigon, Danang or any of the other places I have visited in Vietnam but it was some of the best that I have had in the USA. Several Viet Kieu men were cooking in the kitchen and a cute Viet Kieu girl was a hostess. My companion and I both enjoyed the Bun Tom Thit Nuong Cha Gio, thin slices of pork caramelized to perfection served with grilled shrimp, and a spring roll, over rice noodles, lettuce, peanuts and a tasty house sauce. I saw several other diners enjoying Pho, another of my Vietnamese favorites, and it was my second choice. I enjoyed every bite and if there was a Saigon Café that served food like this on Long Island NY it would be one of my favorite spots. I did not try the Thai so I can make no comparison to other Thai that I have eaten both in the USA and Thailand. I can only say that if you are in Decatur and have a desire for good Vietnamese food give this restaurant a visit, I think you will be satisfied.
