Asian food is not Santa Barbara's strong suit, so Saigon Vietnamese is an easy top choice for Vietnamese. The restaurant is clean, well lit, and well organized. They have a solid menu even if it has to cater to Western tastes. Lunch and dinner are...More

The food was very "fresh" tasting. We had Pho and the mango salad. The restaurant ambiance is charming, in my favorite color, green.

I ordered egg rolls for the appetizer, it comes with peanut sauce and it was so tasty. Shrimp fried rice was my main dish, it was very good. The restaurant is unique but the service is really bad

I've been here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The lunch specials are a good deal (especially for Santa Barbara). The pho was decent, but not the best I've had. However, the lunch price was decent. My Thai Ice Tea was yummy. The...More
