“Best Vietnamese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We discovered this restaurant on a recent trip to Hilton Head Island. I had the ginger chicken and it was delicious as was the hot and sour soup. The flavors of Vietnamese food are distinctly different from the typical "Chinese" food that we find in this country. We enjoyed it so much that we returned for a second meal a few days later even though it was some distance from our hotel. We will not visit Hilton Head again without eating at this restaurant.

“what a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

if you're on Rt 278 heading toward Hilton Head you need to visit Saigon Cafe. 1. we don't have many Vietnamese restaurants in this area, 2. but even if we did, this would be the go to place. their soups are heavenly, the dumplings have the most delicate wraps. i go out of my way to eat at Saigon Cafe. it's quite nice and big enough for fairly large parties.

“Best-kept secret.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

I am so enamored with this place that I eat there at least three times a week. The food, service and hospitality are top-notch. The prices are so reasonable that you can afford to eat there regularly. The ingredients here are fresh and the cooking techniques they use are generally low-fat and healthy, in contrast to most other Thai or Vietnamese restaurants I used to frequent. Overall, this place can't be beat on value, taste and service. Try it.
