“Dave, the proprietor, is the main reason ...”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Dave, the proprietor, is the main reason I regularly visit Old Saigon. Of course the food is very good. What I really like about Dave is that he just about remembers all the names of his regular customers.

Anyway, there is nothing too fancy here; a good selection of typical vietnamese cuisine, including Pho. For the first timers that wants to try something other than Pho, give the "Everybody Loves It" a try ... chicken on rice with a peanut sauce. I happen to like the thin pork chops.

This is a business community restaurant; it's located in the middle an industrial park, but it is still close to the South Center Mall and the Tukwila Costco. The prices here are fair and the service is pretty quick and of course, there's Dave himself.

“Old Saigon?.....PHO SHO!!!”
Reviewed April 25, 2012 via mobile

I try the Pho everywhere I go and this is now in my top five! A bit off the beaten path and a bit hard to find but is well worth it. The staff is very friendly, the service is quick and the food is un-pho-gettable!!!......Lunch, including pho and 2 egg rolls was around $10.....well worth it.

“Cheaper than a plane ticket but THE best Pho and Noodle Bowls this side of the pond.”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

I have had Pho and Noodle Bowls all over, NY, DC, MN, SF, LA, and this was superior to them all. My love for Vietnamese started in the asian parts of DC and the goodness of it has haunted me ever since. Saigon Pho is again the real thing. The brisket pho is so good it is without words. Perfect in flavor, freshness, warmth, and serving. Portions are great for the price. And don't get the vermicelli pork bowl Unless you want to crave it forever! My mouth is watering just thinking about it all.
