Wonderful food every time. Delicious pho, fabulous chicken wings, the beef grill is the tastiest meat on a stick, and the pork bùn is always sweet and fresh!

Go for the Pho and beef skewers, you won't be disappointed. Great service and reasonable prices. The free tea and cup of soup before your meal is almost worth the trip itself.

Bright and fresh, or warm and saucy...they have a wide selection of good favorites. Vietnamese friend rice, rice noodle stir fry, fresh spring rolls and noodle soups are good.

The food is good and the workers are very nice. Don't let the looks fool you, when you drive by it looks a bit run-down, but the food is good, service is friendly and the Pho is great!

Probably one of my favorite restaurants of all time. Unfortunately the pork bun is so good I always get it and haven't tried much else. The pho is great (hubby usually gets it) and I love the beef grill. I love that the meals always begin with a pot of tea and egg drop soup.

Dodd was okay, however the Male server was not inviting, acted as if we were imposing upon him. I felt he was cold to the point of being very rude. There is another vietnamese restaurant Cross the street where the food is much better and very friendly employees. I won't go back to Saigon Restaurant.

Nice community restaurant. Nearly every (somewhat oddly-sized) table was taken when we arrived on a Tuesday evening. Wanted to like the food. But meat in pho tasted frozen and was too thickly cut. Wife and I both woke up with slight stomach upset.

I've been here quite a few times and I've always felt warmth and kindness from the place. The menu is easy to read and the service is just the right level of attentive for me. They respond to smiles with more care, which I think is nice and rare. I sat there with a friend once and an older guy came in, was greeted by a hug, told his friend had called ahead the order and they immediately brought his food out for him to enjoy on his own, but it honestly looked like he was eating with family after the interaction with the staff.The question you all came here to read about is the broth so let me get to it: superb. Super hot and flavorful, clear and aromatic. The jalapeno is always fresh and that's something I've struggled with other places; I'm from the midwest and I need jalapeno. Noodles and meats are good and you can't stop eating. So so so good. I've come here on good days, bad days, and everything in between and always felt very warm leaving.

My absolute favorite Vietnamese restaurant!!! The staff are always polite. They get your order in and it never takes more than 15 minutes from the time the order is placed until it's on your table. (Exclude VERY busy nights)

Quality of ingredients is okay but not impressed. Dinner chicken dish was $15 and it was very fatty n thigh meat. Noodles were low quality and seasonings lacked. I don't recommend.

Used to love Saigon but they've stopped using adequate sauce on their noodle dishes. After multiple trips to see if my flavorless noodles we're a fluke, I think we've finally given up on ordering here.

One of my wife's and my favorite restaurants in Portland! Hands down the best pan fried dumplings I've ever had and easily some of the best pho in town. Their house made chili sauce also sets them apart.

My entire family loves Saigon! The food is authentic, the customer service is great! They give you an appetizer soup as soon as you sit down. The experience they provide is comparable to when you were a kid and went to your grandmothers house- she would feed you, it didn't matter if you were hungry or just ate- she would give you something to eat before you had a chance to close the door behind you! The entire staff is as warm and inviting as their Pho. We go there so often they are like family at this point

I believe this is the all time best place for pho. I’ve lived near LosAngeles and Boston and Orlando and I’ve been to SE Asia and this is the place right here in Portland Maine that I have found so far to be the best! The other dishes are excellent too. The Jasmine hot tea is also the finest I’ve ever had except when I visited in Vietnam or Cambodia. They purchase it locally in Vietnam which is why it’s excellent. Also the oranges they serve at the end are also top quality, like none other. This family that runs the restaurant are very personable and they know how to cook genuine Vietnamese food. But its not too spice either because they understand American taste buds. Don’t miss out on this place!

There are a lot of restaurants in town but this is definitely one of my favorites. Affordable, friendly and very tasty across the board. My go to is the R5 though. If you haven’t given them a chance you’re missing out...
