Been coming for years and has always been a great spot for lunch on the way past. Crispy chicken with noodle soup is my favourite

One of my favourite local eateries. Warm and inviting atmosphere. Friendly service. Fresh produce. Beautiful food. So cheap for the great quality food provided. Once you try this restaurant you will keep coming back.

Saigon Express is my preferred local eatery. A modest restaurant with great prices, delicious food and amazing service. The guys here know me by name and order and remember my allergies so take extra care not to cross contaminate. I always leave a big tip because their prices are so reasonable I feel I am almost stealing! Particularly given their... More

We had a lovely meal here, crispy chicken with soup, chicken pho, beef pho and crispy chicken with rice. We also tried 3 layer drink, which was really nice.

Great place for a quick and healthy meal . Rice paper rolls and vermicelli noodle are fantastic . Go here at least once a week. Not a big menu but everything is great must try

Menu is mainly Vietnamese but noticed a few other Asian dishes. Hence ordering a laksa, along with rice paper rolls and chicken pho. All were good and could not fault anything. Was a shame they were out of the 3 colour drink. Nothing flash but just got Asian food.

Rice Paper Rolls or the Wonton Soup are my favourite for a quick lunch and good $$value. Freshly made while you wait. Good eat in if you are looking for a budget meal with a small group of friends or family to share different meals off the menu

Eat here almost weekly, very reasonably priced food, menu perhaps a little limited but seem to do it well. They were closed for a few weeks over Xmas and tried some others in the local area, more expensive and not as good

Great food, great pho, quick service. Not fantastic decor but good simple and honest. Low prices and the good honest food ensure repeat business. We keep going back.
