I ordered chicken noodle soup because I was feeling ill and wanted something hot to eat. I also ordered extra japalenos for the soup. I ordered a large portion. The soup was very flavorful and piping hot when it arrived at the table. the chicken was not over cooked, but tasted like it has been steamed and not cooked in... More

Pho is my soul food! I stopped in twice this week for carryout. The broth was packed separately in the traditional container as I would expect. The sides for the vegetable pho were in a separate container and included broccoli, cabbage, carrots, bean sprouts, mushrooms, lime wedges, and of course rice noodles. (I think I recounted all ingredients!) When I... More

We had lunch here during our vacation in Va Beach. The pho was great although I wish it had more veggies. All they put in it are bean sprouts. However the appetizer wasn't the best. It was a sampler platter of an spring roll and a couple different kinds of shrimp rolls. The rice paper was very sticky and slimy... More

The wife and I visited here for our forth time since my first review. We have only been for lunches, never dinners yet. We think it is good that we see folks of Vietnamese decent come in to eat here which tells us it must be good. We still like this place for the Pho' when we're in the mood... More

Here in VA beach for short visit. Not too impressed with the food here, they are quite busy with customers, but the food is not very authentic or good. The guy doesn't know how to make crepe (banh xeo), he made the crepe and then dumped the cooked meat (made for hot noodle soup) and cooked shrimp in with the... More

Ready to enjoy an exceptional Vietnamese tasting adventure? Saigon #1 is the destination that should be in your GPS! The building is nondescript, but, inside, the food definitely is not! The atmosphere is low-key, subdued, with some visual cultural highlights. My husband couldn't wait to order the pho dac biet (sorry-my old keyboard won't type the circumflex over the o)... More

This is my favorite place for pho. I think they have the best, most flavorful broth here. I usually get a beef soup and am always happy with the flavor.

Good service, absolutely delicious food. Had the lunch special with pork roll, beef soup, fried rice, and ginger chicken. The lemongrass chicken was also amazing. Very well priced.

We have traveled around many places and we miss finding authentic food, this place is a jewel. Good food and fair price, they are super nice people (even changed the chicken for scallop on my dish at no extra cost). We are definitely coming back!! Super recommended.

3 friends and i met at Saigon 1 for dinner. We all had variations of the combination dinner. The value is great. For $10.09 i got a bowl of beef noodle soup, crispy roll, and lemongrass shrimp with rice noodles. My friends had the lemongrass beef with fried rice and spring roll. It's not an fancy place to eat but... More
