Good place to eat when wondering downtown. Nice friendly atmosphere, staff was very helpful on recommendations, and the food was good. Recommend having the spring rolls, they are excellent.

We just moved into the area and someone said their are no Chinese Food restaurants, lots of Thai and Japanese. Anyway, had seen this place a couple of times and it was Easter Sunday, so we opted for something different. This is a family owned place, which is a plus, as it is important to support, but also they put... More

Highly recommend the spring rolls and they serve the best peanut sauce I have ever had. The Mango salad is also excellent. My kids also love the flaming beef teriyaki appetizer. Nice family and good food but service can be slow. Spring rolls are worth the wait!!

The pork fried rice was OK, but nothing special. The Szechuan pork wasn't very good and there wasn't very much pork in it. Staff was very friendly and funny.

The food was pretty good. The service was as bad as it could get. First we are a party of five and was given four glasses of water. Second it took twenty minutes for our waiter to take our order. 30 minutes later my sons meal came out, my meal following it by 5 minutes. My wife and girls received... More

This is a main staple for when my family dines out. The spring rolls are fresh, large and the peanut sauce is the best in town! The menu serves several favorites, but the top 3 are the phad thai, sweet and sour chicken (veg option), and the curries. I think I have tried just about everything on the menu, and... More

Had the Spring rolls with shrimp and pork -- perfectly adequate. You won't be wowed or disappointed. I had the Vietnamese Crepe, which was fine. Partner had the grilled pork on vermicelli (called noodle salad here). Service was fine. All in all, a solid three star performance.

I have always hear great things about mini Saigon, however it didn't live up to the hype. The food was overly oily and had relatively no flavor. How unfortunate because I love Asian food. The waiter seemed to be too young to even be working, maybe 13-15yrs old?

Olympia is my hometown and whenever I'm back to visit, usually two or three times a year, I always make time to visit Mini Saigon for some of their fresh, amazing spring rolls....better than any I've had in Asia or NYC! Try their pork buns too....you won't be disappointed. The Thai food is always fresh and delicious as well. The... More
