Shocked at how high the ratings are for this place. Small town with no better comparisons I guess. Poor service. Poor food. I ordered pho because I figured it was the safe choice. Not so. Pretty terrible. Save your money.

Pho, salad rolls, make that everything is served by a waitress you will not see..so get what you want NOW. TIPS will get you remembered and service will be adjusted accordingly (forewarned don't be a stiff re tips). You WILL be back.

This is our hidden gem. A small unassuming little family restaurant with great Vietnamese food. We have traveled extensively in Vietnam and this is the closest you'll get without actually going there. Don't expect fancy but do expect good food. It has been our secret place for a great taste of Vietnam. I'm letting you in on our secret but... More

If you like Vietnamese food look no further than Saigon Garden. Great pho, salad rolls, shrimp rolls and try the chicken hot pot. Everything is good.

Been here a few times, tasty food but the building is old and so is the decor and everything needs a good scrub down. Waitress Ive had each time kinda throws us our food and we never see her again.....but food comes quick.

The food is consistently good. The Salad rolls with peanut sauce are what I keep going back for. The place needs new furnishings and I've gone to find it closed. So call ahead. But food is always hot and good! And quick.

Went here for a quick lunch, had a dish with noodles, lemongrass chicken, egg rolls and a salad roll. It was average and not much actual substance to the food, mostly vermicelli, lettuce and shaved off cut up pieces of shrimp. The redeeming flavor was in the lemongrass chicken which was very tasty. It is a typical Asian style hole... More

Went out for lunch and was satisfied, just nothing special. Nothing makes it stand out, which may not be a totally bad thing but nothing enticed to make a return visit. Mediocre food at a decent price. Would suggest for someone wanting something different.

Very busy at lunch but well worth the wait, great pricing. The décor is something to be desired but your there for the food not the décor:)
