Great food. Definitely the best pho in Lawrence. The couple who owns and operates this are so sweet. They make you feel so welcome.

I read about Little Saigon Cafe in the KC Star and thought it would be a fun place to try with my family on Black Friday. It's about 40 minutes from KC to Lawrence and worth the drive. We had summer rolls, which were delicious. Two of us had chicken pho, one had beef pho, and one had a noodle... More

A group of us visited Little Saigon to sample Pho and Bún. The restaurant sits in a non-descript strip mall next door to a nail salon. The space is narrow, and about 4 small tables situated along the windows. There is counterbar where you can eat. The decoration is industrial light with the kitchen smack in one corner of the...

Four tables, two staff. Fresh food. Excellent presentation and taste. A literal mom-and-pop restaurant that will become one of your Lawrence favorites.

Super great tofu veggie pho! This place is great. There is a bar area to sit and watch the hustle a bustle in the kitchen, which is connected with the dining area. Feels and tastes like an authentic "hole in the wall".

This place is such a surprise. It is a little place, but they can turn out good Vietnamese food. Stick with it Viet stuff that is what they do best. Pho beats ramen every day The Bahn Mi dropped off the menu - hope it comes back.

If you have driven on 23rd multiple times and still don't know what this place is, don't feel bad! Little Saigon is hidden behind the nail salon attached to the front, so it can be easily missed. But if you like Pho and are nearby, this place shouldn't be overlooked. We came for lunch and it was reasonably busy, but... More
