On the door is a Best of Olympia 2015 sticker but I find that hard to believe. The first table I selected had smears of sauce on corners of the glass top. It looked like someone had wiped down the table but the bar towel wasn't up to the job. As I walked to another table, my shoes scritched over... More

Great location. Extensive menu meant to please the palates of all. However, the plates my friend and I received were flavorless and lacking any imagination or eye appeal. The rice noodles in the spring rolls were old and dry, the entrees were spicy hot but lacking flavors. The sweetest owner you'd ever hope to meet having retired from state government.... More

on a weekday afternoon I was the only person in the restaurant. The owner/waiter was watching something on his laptop at the back of the restaurant. Eventually he waited on me. I knew what I wanted to order: Pho and a spring roll. I was disappointed in the rather tasteless chicken pho. The serving was large, as was the single... More

I fell in love with Olympia during this trip and the restaurants proved my love was just and right and good - especially Saigon Rendez-Vous. Excellent service, easy to park, lovely vibe, and generous portions. My companion and I both tried combos - one with the almond chicken (a new spin on an old fave - loved that crisp shell)... More

So we went here because we really wanted Chinese food, but we had to walk out. The first thing it was empty. That was clue number one. It was freezing in there. They have not turned on their heater. We ordered hot water and hot tea and both tea kettles were very dirty. There was no support on the bench... More

I'm new in town and my kids wanted to take me to a good Asian restaurant with vegan options. I loved the vegan pepper steak, as well as the vegan fried rice. The Kung Pao vegan dish was tasty as well. I'll definitely be back!

This was one of the better Vietnamese meals I've had in a long while. Great Banh Mi and Pho for my son. Really nice owners also. Have a nice chat with Mike. A must visit if you are in Olympia!

This place may appear a little seedy but don't let appearances fool you, this is a don't miss in Olympia. I was so greatful as someone without any ethnic food near my home to visit a place that had fresh delicious stir fried veggies and the most incredibly delicious Vietnamese noodle soup. Thank you Saigon rendez vous!

Last weekend I arrived in Olympia with a case of the flu. I slept in my hotel room room a few blocks away from Saigon Rendezvous for most of the afternoon. I finally dragged myself to SR to get a bowl (a BUCKET!) of hot and sour soup to go. The lovely proprietor (obviously) could tell I was sick and... More

No Taste at all... Too junk food.. Greasy food.. Ambience is 1 out of 10. Food has no taste. Total disappointment and waste of time.
