We stopped in for a drink and a quick snack, my son wanted to try boba tea. Were we so disappointed. We ordered to go, were to 5 to 10 minutes; 28 minutes later....finally the last item came out. Waitress, who took our order, explained only one person knew how to make the drinks....really, only one person. Spring rolls were... More

We ordered some food for take and loved it. We have always loved the food. They did tell me that it would take 20 min for my pick up, but I ordered it on my way there. It was ready in 10 min.

I have eaten at Saigon Bistro since it opened and love the light and healthy foods. Many Americans are hooked on sugar sauces to smother their food and supply the "taste"..but Vietnamese cooking is amazing for allowing the food to speak for itself.

Family insisted that I had to try it, I did ONCE. NEVER again. I got the Teriyaki chicken, I'm pretty sure it was NOT chicken, and NO everything DOES NOT taste like chicken.

I have visited Saigon Bistro on a number of occasions over the last few years and have always had good quality flavorful food. On my most recent visit I tried the Pork Dumplings and the Yellow Curry Chicken. The dumplings were soft and filled with flavorful pork. The sauce on the side added a nice sweet garlic flavor. The chicken... More

I love spicy food even though my stomach hates it. I went for a late lunch today, and tried the yellow curry. It was really good!!! I can't wait to come back. I have always had the red curry and beef here, but the yellow is just as good!!! The mild isn't spicy at all, but the spicy sometimes is... More

So, I am a gluten free, try to be vegan. I am more of a pescatarian that doesn't eat dairy. I saw reviews on Trip Advisor for this place and it said that GF and plant free dining wasn't an issue. Well, true story. I asked when I sat down what they had for gluten free. The waitress was awesome.... More

This is an excellent restaurant for anyone that likes fresh cooked Asian food. You can get the dish prepared mild or spicy to suit your tastes. While they did not provide a gluten-free menu, the waitress knew the items on the menu to avoid. We enjoyed the summer rolls with tofu and vegetables over rice. This is our second visit... More

The food was authentically Vietnamese enough to please my Vietnamese wife but Americanized enough that I liked it better than most places I ate during my recent 5 years of residence in Vietnam. Our server was a very pleasant Viet kieu college student who was quite friendly and attentive and the place has a pleasant contemporary ambiance which unfortunately might... More

We love this place but can only visit once every two to three months as it is an hour & half drive away from Sarasota. Would be over the moon if a second location would open in Sarasota - I think we'd be there every week!
