Nicely fried food nuoc mam was good, but the filling was just odd and spongy. That's all we went in for, left disappointed.

I've had lots of pho in many different restaurants all over the world (including Vietnam), and Bun Saigon rates as one of the best. The portions were generous, with lots of tender meat, fresh bean sprouts and basil leaves. The broth, piping hot and with just the right balance of the delicate, subtle flavors that make pho so unique and... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the sampling of pho, beef with lemongrass and rice, and spring rolls. Probably one of the best I have had. Friendly service and fast. I highly recommend. The restaurant decor itself is basic but the food is awesome!

Delicious food. Staff was extremely friendly. Prices were low, portions were big. Lots of fresh ingredients and herbs. I had the beef noodle bowl (#219) and my partner had a soup (#110). Both were world class. I had a papaya milkshake with tapioca and it was amazing.

I loved their vermicelli duck soup and fried spring rolls. The menu is ample, so it takes a while to navigate. However, it's all explained well and the pictures help :). The service was good and very quick.

Although the decor is unpretentious and simple, service on a Saturday evening was brisk. Offerings are plentiful and portions are large. This is genuine Vietnamese with fresh ingredients. This place really hit the spot and we will be back if we're in the area.

The place is clean and you get the best bun (Viet rice-based vermicelli) within a 20 miles radius. I had Bun Oc (Bun in clam based soup) for dinner and Bun Rieu (Bun in a crab based soup) for lunch the next day. I was super pleased both times. Didn't try other stuff on the menu, but others at the... More
