Any news?? We're getting desperate.

    Folks - pardon the interruption. We've removed a lot of non-chow discussion about labor relation issues. Feel free to post any concrete information you may have about when this Saigon Grill location may reopen.

      Saigon Grill 88 is open for walk in business. The problem is that they are not doing delivery orders because of labor problems.

          There may be some confusion between east & west side Saigon Grill here.

              East is definetely not open. I went there based on RichardW's comment about Saigon 88 and found the same situation I've seen for the past 6 months. Instead went to the new Wondee Siam3 on 3rd and 81 and it was delicous. Had the calamari, summer roll, Green curry w/chicken and pad see ew w/beef. All was wonderful, very grateful to have a thai close by, even if their takeout menu says they only deliver as far north as one block below where I live...

                I made a mistake when I wrote that note. I was at the West Side Saigon Grill which is around 90th & Amsterdam.

      I called a few months ago, this place has been closed for renovations for what feels like two years....no reasonable answer whatsoever. I miss my Green Papaya Salad !!

        I asked the owner at the West Side location the other day and he said it's never reopening. I was crushed.

            I'm surprised you were still holding out hope.

            I now use Spice Noodle 1744 first Ave.
            There is a mix of foods including a few indonesian and chinese dishes, but good sub for Siagon delivery.
