Included in a family gathering to a restaurant I had never been. Interior of the restaurant was rather sparse, just the normal things with nothing outstanding. The service was very fast and courteous. The menu really reminded me of a Chinese restaurant. Food arrived quickly with large portions. The food was cooked excellent. I was very happy with my visit.... More

I eat here frequently and it remains one of my favorite restaurants in the area. It's always consistent. The service is great and so is the food! The servers remember my favorite dishes and have recommended new ones that I have loved as well. I really can't say enough good things about Little Saigon! It's not fancy but I would... More

The place is not very fancy but it's clean and attractive. We stopped for lunch while driving through Springfield. The Pho Saigon was excellent with a good amount of meat. Summer Rolls a little disappointing; not much flavor. My husband had a pork dish (#503) that he enjoyed very much. We would definitely go back.

It is possible to give up in the search for a good restaurant in Springfield. Don't. Instead, go to Little Saigon and order practically anything. Food is excellent, as is the service. Prices are extremely reasonable.

We first went downtown but due to the parade there was a 1 hour wait which didn't seem worth it, then next place same story so we decided to head back towards the hotel and stop here. Decoration is uninviting and could use a major overhaul. It's fairly clean. Staff is friendly and on task. Food is all over the... More

This was my second visit and I was not disappointed. I had the seafood bake with crab, shrimp, scallops and squid with rice. The food was tasty. The seafood was a little greasy and salty but overall a nice evening out.

We have been loyal customers of this place for 9 years (and two different owners) and it's always been consistently good and inexpensive. They accommodate vegetarians and vegans well. We love the curries, the clear noodles, and spring rolls. Their Juices and freezes are excellent (ask for the avocado freeze if the avisados are ripe) This is the best Thai... More

We were tired and hungry after a day on the road. The Little Saigon was only a couple of miles from our hotel so we gave it a try. We started with the Saigon Siumais which are chopped shrimp in thin wrappers then deep fried. They were tasty and light. Then we had the Edamame. It was fresh and tasty.... More

Freshest Shrimp Springrolls as well as a delicate and crispy crab ragoon. All the meals are lightly seasoned and contain an abundance of fresh vegetables. A must try are the freshly made fruit smoothies . With or without the tapioca . I had mine without. The have value meals at lunch and supper for under $20 for two people!
