I have been to Saigon mostly for Pho many times. I really enjoy it. It is a friendly staff, great for take out or eat in. The owner often greets with a big smile and makes one feel like a true friend. I love that when I come in to pay for take out they give me tea as I... More

I met some clients here at their request. The outside of the building and area would not lend itself to a visit unless you were referred to this place. Look 👀 past the appearance and go in for the food. The service is excellent and the dishes all looked fantastic and my clients enjoyed theirs. They frequent Saigon and say... More

My mom (who is an avid fan of pho) took me here for dinner. They have great selections on their menu. We had the seafood pho and their beef vermicelli bowl, and I was in awe. The broth of the pho is flavorful with generous amount of seafood. Their portion is big, but I can finish the large because it... More

The food here is very fresh and delicious. The ambience is very nice as well. I think this is a great Vietnamese restaurant where the food is not too spicy or over the top. I would highly recommend Saigon Restaurant.

We decided to have dinner in Portland on our way back to NY and found ourselves on Fore st. Using the trusty tripadvisor and yelp app we started to find a place to eat...and after an hour we were still looking. It was a Monday night and everywhere we asked the wait times were 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours.... More

I had the pho. It was tasty and a tad too sweet. But I just hated the after effect of msg. I was thirsty for hours after that. The summer rolls were good, but very small. Another thing that I deplore is sticky table. I had to clean the table with the complimentary jasmine tea that was given. The mini... More

I eat regularly at Saigon and it is time I wrote a review. I have enjoyed Vietnamese soups for many years and when I returned to the Portland area I began looking for a place to get good Pho; found Saigon. The folks at Saigon are friendly, welcome their guest with a smile, provide exceptional service, great food, good value... More

Medium sized restaurant with ample off street parking. The menu is just the right size. Delicious complimentary cup of soup! Try the pork chop with plain rice. Reasonable pricing. Go early for diner. Restaurant fills quickly. Good food and good service.

When my favorite pho house closed in South Portland I was in down in the dumps. I'm a huge fan of this traditional Vietnamese soup, and while there are places around Portland that serve it, there is a certain level of quality and authenticity that I was searching for- and after bouncing around to a few places and feeling fairly...
