Crispy noodle with beef and stir fry veg. Noodles were crunchy rather than light, meat sauteed rather than grilled, veggies steam cooked and the stir fry in oyster sauce didn't happen. Oily medium brown watery dish liquid was the sauce sitting at the bottom of the oval plate with no flavour or deliciousness. Something wrong here. Not supposed to be... More

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.

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
