I've only been here a few times, but I'm always struck by the total lack of people enjoying this place. The pho is consistently very good, the staff is friendly, the prices are great, and where else can you sit outside under a sunbrella and look out on Puget Sound, the Olympic mountain range, and watch ferries and sailboats go...

You wouldn't know it from the appearance of the building, which is obviously from another era and would benefit greatly from restoration, but the food is first-rate. We had fresh shrimp rolls and a beverage for lunch on the patio. The rolls took a long time to prepare but were quite delicious. If you don't mind the ambiance, it's a... More

Arrived in a wet and miserable Alki beach and ended up parking outside this cafe. After a quick search on TA we decided the least wet option was to go for lunch here. We were really pleased. The cafe building itself has seen better days, and you are best not to look too closely at some of the fittings, but... More

great family owned Pho and more cafe. Everything there is fresh, and great quality. Banh mi under $4! Large pho choices at reasonable prices. Crab, spring rolls and m ugh more. Not to mention beachside place to people watch and enjoy the view.

Really good bubble tea. Didn't get a chance to try the Pho, but I would come back again. The staff is very friendly as well.

It's not really my go to place for Pho. It is better than average but I haven't had anything that was EXCEPTIONAL. I like it better than THAN brothers. The outside seating is nice. You are right across from the beach.

We were enjoying a beautiful day on Alki and decided to stop at Saigon Boat for lunch. We didn't know what to expect but we were blown away by the great food, friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices! The Banh Mi was fresh and delicious and the Pho was terrific as well. Overall, we would definitely recommend Saigon Boat!!

I have ventured into their menu a few times but mainly this is our local go to place for pho. Comforting, fresh and surprisingly inexpensive, it comes with a great view too. I have ordered a sandwich for the beach and it was really good too.
