I've eaten here a few times and the beef pho is really excellent - generous portions, and good quality ingredients. The spicy soups are also very good and the Buddha bowls look great. It gets very busy though (and hence quite noisy) and service is a bit lack lustre. It's also a shame they don't take bookings in advance -... More

They have an extensive eat in or take out menu. Food is pricey but good and they have a very good vegetarian selection

On a Sunday drive through the Finger Lakes, I had an urge for pho, and all internet signs pointed me towards Saigon Kitchen. Luckily, those reviews were right and I had a great meal. Fresh, flavorful pho (at only $10/bowl), all the necessary condiments/add-ons, a warm & friendly atmosphere, and good, quick service. I look forward to stopping in again... More

Saigon Kitchen was a visit on a whim the first time we visited. The food was outstanding, the service was friendly and on point. Needless to say, our first visit was not our last!

Saigon Kitchen is a fantastic Vietnamese restaurant located just west of Reems on Bell Road. The staff is exceptionally attentive and the food quality is superb. Andy, Josh, and Ignacio are wonderful servers and keep your glasses filled, as well as check in with you while you're dining to see that everything is going well without being obtrusive. Danny is...

The menu had something for everybody and so reasonably priced! All in the party were delighted with the freshness and flavors except that they got one guest's order wrong. When they fixed it, it was different from what was expected. Aside from that glitch it was a great dining experience that we would repeat. I always enjoy their Phos but... More

We had a fantastic meal at Saigon Kitchen. I recommend it highly - everything was delicious! We arrived just before 6pm and could sit right down. By 6:30 there was growing crowd of people waiting for tables.

Not an expert with Vietnamese food but we enjoyed our meal immensely. Service was fast - maybe a touch too fast but it was pretty busy - and the serving size was just right for us. A "big eater" might want to supplement with appetizers etc. They've installed acoustic baffling in the ceiling which helped cut down on the noise... More
