Easy walk 5-minute from Grove St. Path station. Charming, intimate family run restaurant. The food is delicious and prices reasonable with great service. Would go back again.

“My all time fav restaurant”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

When my husband asks me where I want to go, be it for a special occasion or just because, I always choose Saigon Cafe - always! I love the small, intimate setting. The owners (a family) are wonderful. The food is consistent - always delicious. I have a few favorite dishes including the prawn chip pork, but everything I've tried is wonderful. We even brought the kids a few times as I have seen others do. This is really great food in a restaurant with a casual vibe. Perfect for a family meal or a nice date night.

The bar is great. I believe dad typically makes the drinks. If it's not on the menu, he can usually whip it up or you can tell him what you are craving and he'll come up with a perfect creation.

The best part though is the dessert. Always save room for the steamed banana cake. OMG, so delicious. Cannot wait to go back.

“Refreshing Spin on Vietnamese Food”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Walking in to Saigon Cafe you feel like your'e in a well-loved family-run neighborhood joint: dark brick walls, handsome little bar in the back, everyone - staff and dinners - is happy. You'll find many familiar flavors on the menu but I come here for all the great dishes you won't find at every other Vietnamese restaurant. Really flavorful, nicely presented dishes at reasonable prices. Nice date spot with a surprisingly good little wine list.
