Saigon Kitchen was recommended to me by a trusted relative. She loves it, I thought it was average. The Crispy Squid was the best thing we had - make sure you order it. I had the eggplant and it was average, as was the Pho....More

Had the crispy squid and chicken pho with spicy sauce. It was so delicious that I have been having Pho for most of my lunches since last Sunday.

Decent Vietnamese place--I've def had better but that was in SF. Hard to come by good viet place that isn't just Pho. Bring your own beer--there's a place on the corner you can go and they let you bring it in.

Knowing nothing about Vietnamese food, I agreed to try it with a friend. It's a small and very casual cafe. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. I tried their signature Saigon Kitchen curry with chicken.. It was very good. I certainly would eat...More

The menu was fairly extensive for a Vietnamese Restaurant and the food was great. The service was quick and the waitress pleasant. If you're in Ithaca looking for a good place for dinner I highly recommend this one.

We came here for lunch and I had the crispy tofu. This might well be the best tofu dish I have ever had.

The title should say it all. Plenty of parking on main road. Crowded, so had to wait 15 minutes. Quality food, good service, good price, great taste.

The food is amazing. The service is good. The place is small and the decor below average. We go there for the food, not the decor

Loved the fresh and delicious food at this great little spot! The summer rolls, pot stickers and pho were all delicious. Reasonably priced too. Friendly service. A must try!

The food is delicious, friendly service, very reasonably priced. The room is very loud when they're busy, other than that there aren't many cons. One of my favorite restaurants in Ithaca.

I don't recall seeing liquor on the menu. Call ahead- they may allow BYOB.
