My only experience with Vietnamese food is the vendor at the farmers market in Ithaca, NY. so I am only somewhat familiar with the style of cooking and the flavors. I would expect that anyone who enjoys Asian style foods, whether Chinese or Thai will also like Vietnamese. The Saigon has a nice dining room and it was fairly busy for lunch on a Friday. I found the service was good (prompt and attentive). My lunch was served quickly, as in 5 minutes. I had the Sai Gon Pho - Pho Dac Biet which is a classic Vietnamese noodle bowl with rice noodles and a combination of rare beef, flank and meat balls. It is served with bean sprouts and cilantro. I really liked the broth and you get to use an Asian soup spoon which can be fun. They also give you chop sticks for the noodles. I also had a Vietnamese coffee which can be served hot or cold, I had it cold. It was very much like a mocha: rich and sweet.
