This restaurant is fantastic!! I am Vietnamese and Lao and I know good pho. We try pho in every city we go to when were on vacation and this was one of the best vietnamese-type pho I've ever had. Delicious. It was a little pricy for pho ($7 for a small, $8 for a medium and $9.50 for a large) but it came with a separate bowl of soup for an appetizer and watermelon for dessert on the house.  We ordered 6 dishes and the bill only came out to $55. It was such a great deal and, again, one of the best bowls that I've ever had. 5 stars! Eat here and you'll leave very happy and full!!!

OK, I would not try Saigon for a year as their sign advertised that they served breakfast. SOmething about a Chinese restaurant serving all three meals just weirded me out. Add to that the curb appeal, and I stubbornly refused to even try it.

One night a friend and I landed up there quite by chance. Another Portland find! Walk through the doors and you'll find a clean, simple yet smart restaurant. The complimentary soup is delicious, the food always solid with crisp veggies, and the staff is very friendly. This is a great place for a quick meal. Service is fast and food seems to appear even faster.
But I'm still not going there for breakfast! :)

First time patrron at this small restaurant on Forest Avenue in Portland, Maine. Typical polite service with food to die for. Excellent flavors, crispy vegetables and very well prepared food.
I will return often. Donato
