Great food (menu similar to thai), nice people, can eat in or take out. We bring the 6yo, and play a game while eating (monopoly jr, uno ...), and nobody minds. 5 tables not being used, so plenty of room for a few more families....(Directions NOTE: access from the FRONT parking -- they are deep in corner between the 2 buildings, behind T-Mobile.)More

I was traveling and stayed overnight near this restaurant and decided I need some "home cooking" so went here one evening. This place is the real thing. The wait staff person was the owner. He was very cordial and professional. Once the food came I...was so happily surprised. This was terrific food; tremendous flavors. Mine was the chicken and rice plate which was really a soup-like bowl of vegetables and very savory lemon grass based soup and a chicken leg/thigh in the middle with white rice on the side. Amazingly delicious and settled my stomach. I wish I lived closer. If other things on the menu are anything like I had, then you can't go wrong. It is a little place with not much atmosphere tucked behind/on the side of the Subway sandwich place on the 127 S service drive.More

Now located at 1100 U.S. 127 S (behind Subway Subs). Service and food was phenomenal. Unknowingly, arrived at closing. They not only unlocked the door- welcomed us in, but explained the Vietnamese menu (first time) with a smile. Very friendly! The food was fresh, affordable,...and the hidden gem of Frankfort dining! Looking forward to next visit already!More

We're fortunate to have such expertly prepared Vietnamese cuisine in Frankfort! This is a locally owned place with a super-talented chef.

Authentic, flavorful, well prepared Vietnamese! Support this restaurant! We had the grilled lemongrass and egg roll noodle bowl and the special pork and shrimp with egg roll noodle bowl. Both were absolutely fantastic and we will come back for these two items and many more...that we want to try on this menu. It doesn't get any more authentic in Frankfort Kentucky than this Vietnamese restaurant! Keep up the good work!More

Our first experience with Vietnamese food was a good one. We were served promptly on a very busy night. Out waitress was friendly and helpful in explaining the menu and we were very pleased with the freshness and taste of our food. We had a...noodle bowl with shrimp, chicken, beef, vegetables and tiny egg rolls with a light fish sauce. We were a bit leery of “fish sauce” but thought it was delicious and asked for more. Our waitress was really happy that we did and was gracious in inviting us back. We’ll come again.More

My wife and I have eaten here probably 6 times in the last year and it's always good. It's now right in the heart of downtown so the atmosphere is much better than in a run down strip mall kind of situation. The pho is...very tasty, as are the spring rolls. I've been a bit underwhelmed by the chicken wings. Not that they are "bad", just not as good as the other offerings. Service is always prompt and friendly, but that brings me to my major concern with this establishment: There never seem to be many people eating here when we visit! I don't understand this. Good food. Good service. One of the few authentic ethnic cuisine places in town. Come on, people! We need to make sure this place survives!More

The atmosphere is ehhhh. And that's the only con. Ask the waitress, who will likely be the owner, what off the menu items they have. And trust them. You might be disappointed if you think Chuck e Cheese makes great pizza. But if you like...Vietnamese food or food that has flavor, you like Mai Saigon.More

The atmosphere isn't anything special and the location has limited parking but the food is awesome and the prices are fair. The chicken wings are amazingly juicy with great flavor and the fried rice won't disappoint. The service is fast and attentive and there are...some real gems on the menu.More

I would call but I don’t know... they are just a small family run place. But I am sure they would love the business.
