“Excellent”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food is great and the variety is awesome. I love the waitstaff is very nice and very helpful. The serving size is very big for the amount you spend. I would recommend this to any one who likes the Asian flare

“We never miss it....”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

When visiting Duluth, we always make an appoint to have a meal at Taste of Saigon. Located in the Dewitt Seitz building, don't be turned off by the unassuming storefront style of this place. It is just great. We dined in much fancier places while in Duluth this time, but didn't have a better or tastier meal. Not fancy, but delicious. Very reasonable, as well.

“Really love the egg rolls!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Great egg rolls and great service! This is a neat and authentic little vietnamese restaurant. I love supporting local business and this family is always very kind every time we visit. Attentive service. I have been pleased with everything I have ordered here.

“Normally love this place but avoid the Pho”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

This place is usually a place we love. When we saw a sign that they now offer "Pho" we had to see their version of this Vietnamese noodle soup. The Pho was bland, the portion was small and they did not offer any vegetables. I had the vegetarian pho with Tofu. (It really is not vegetarian because the broth is beef based, which I did know) The Pho then only had tofu, noodles and onions, normally you have a couple of vegetables in the mix. I have had the opportunity to try many Pho restaurants in the Twin Cities area and I am now a little spoiled but I was really disappointed.

“Viet Namese place? Not!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Stopped in on a recent one night visit to Duluth. We love Viet Namese food, so this came up on our radar. Located in a busy and fun part of Duluth in a re-purposed older building that housed a number of businesses. After being seated and given menus, we almost decided to get up and leave, thinking we would try the Thai place down the street. It was clear that the menu was primarily oriented toward Chines cuisine, with an extremely limited number of Viet Namese options. However, we reasoned that perhaps this was a compromise of the local market, and that the Chinese food was there for those unfamiliar with southeast Asian food. Turns out we were wrong. We ordered several Viet Namese staples, the spicy lemongrass chicken, a bowl of Bun (dry noodles topped with grilled meat, herbs, and Nuoc Cham sauce) and an ice coffee. Only the ice coffee was authentic. The spicy lemongrass chicken resembled nothing more than a bland Chines curry, and the bun was merely noodles with a couple of egg rolls cut up on top. Very disappointing. Otoh, service was courteous and pleasant. Skip this place if it's true Viet Namese cuisine you seek.
