Very busy, seat yourself style. Service is quick but not full restaurant (they'll take your order and deliver the food but are not going to wait on you hand and foot). For the price you get a lot of food. Go up to the counter when you are ready to pay.

Consistently excellent Vietnamese cuisine! Bahn Mi, pho, smoothie, and done. You can't beat the price and quick service. It's always busy and for good reason. We (my husband and I) call it the hidden jem. Love it!

This place has everything I want in a Vietnamese restaurant: Pho, spring rolls, eggrolls, bun bo hue, banh mi, coffee, three bean dessert, and a whole lot of other interesting steamed edibles. It is the closest thing to what I am used to in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area (has a huge selection of Southeast Asian restaurants). If you are... More

I frequent this place, so I am not sure why it took me so long to put my review up! Vietnamese cuisine is one of my favorites, and for all the pho-serving joints I have been to in all my years, Saigon Deli is the standard...and has yet to be beaten. It is ALWAYS busy here, and the hours are... More

The most authentic in the area. The soups are rich and fresh. Bun Bo Hue is an amazing spicy soup. The regular Pho is excellent with rare meat on the side. A side of pork is great to share. All herbs and veges were very fresh. Highly recommended! This is a weekly spot for many. They close at 5 but... More

If you are in Tampa, and want Pho, go here with comfy clothes and get the Pho and Banh mi. The broth is perfect, and the meat is perfectly cooked. The banh mi is terrific. The iced coffee is a fantastic drink to go along with this hot steamy soup. Keep it simple and have fun quickly and leave.

Pho was ok, nothing special and the soup was a bit oily. Our waiter try his best to give us good service when it was really busy in the restaurant. Three of us ordered Pho and we didn't like it that much. Another two ordered rice with grilled pork, they seemed to enjoy it. I also got fresh spring rolls... More

I've been coming here for about 8 years now and it is outstanding. I travel quite a bit and have tried a lot of vietnamese restaurants around the country and this place is in the top few, definitely number one for Tampa. Their grilled pork Bahn-mi's and chicken Pho are the top stars of the show there. The prices are... More

There are many tasty vietnamese restaurants in Tampa but this one really is the best. Both taste and price wise!
