A bit away from the major tourist scenery sites and touted restaurants we found Saigon café to be an authentic Vietnamese restaurant with authentic food and very entertaining service. Having lived in Southern California for many years I would rate the pho as average but the shrimp cane sugar paste lollipops (chao tom) was a very good dish as well... More

Have been here before, the older waiter is very funny and talks up a good show. Had the fried spring rolls (cha gio) and the sliced New York steak with veges and rice. Another person ordered the won ton chow fun soup, seemed to enjoy it. Food was well prepared, but average. Best part was the funny wait staff.

Wow what a great experience. Tried this on a recommendation in a book and they were right. Best Vietnamese food I've ever had. We had the Fresh Summer Rolls for an appetizer and they were so fresh. My husband had the Crispy Noodles with Beef. The beef was very tender and high quality. I had the Fried Spring Rools and... More

Went for lunch today. Had the spring rolls and summer rolls as an appetizer. Both were great, the dipping sauces too. For main my boyfriend got the beef with garlic and eggs (#66) and I got a Pad Thai-style noodle dish. Both were amazing. Ordered a coke and an iced tea, both didn't come to the table but were on...

Wait staff was rude. Slow service and the food was very bland. Worst pho I have ever had. Will not be coming back.

Our first time eating Vietnamese food. The food was great...we got what is called "Vietnamese burritos"... the Vietnamese do-it-yourself version of the fajita. The shrimp popsicle is a must. When we were ordering, I tried to add two summer-rolls to our order, but the waiter told us that we already had enough food...and he was right. Very reasonably priced for... More

Off of the beaten path is the greatest Vietnamese restaurant around. The staff is super high energy. The food is amazing, spectacular, worth the drive and many other words I can think of. If you're on the island of Maui make sure you visit this place. My recommendation is tell the server whom I think owns the place what types... More

This place has passion.! This is some of the best food I've eaten on the island. It's worth the drive and you won't regret it. My wife and I will probably go back for dinner the very next day since we will be leaving the island and I want to try something else the offer. People the food, the staff,... More

My wife and I had the beef vermicelli with spring rolls, chicken wings and chicken fried rice. Everything was awesome. Even the veggies were crisp and fresh. The owner seemed to be a big fan of 90's West Coast rap music and made a lot of jokes, so it added some fun to the dining experience. I highly recommend this... More
