    I went with friends last night and really enjoyed it. We shared the fresh spring rolls and I had a dish with pork and cruchy noodles for my entree. Loved it. Everything was fresh and well prepared. I typically go right for the pho in a Vietnamese place, but for some reason was in the mood for something different. I look forward to going back to try their pho soon.

        Ate at Saigon this week, and was not disappointed. I expected the spring rolls to be fried, but they were what I've always called summer rolls. Either way, very fresh and tasty, with a lovely peanut sauce rather than nuoc cham.
        Had a rice noodle, fish & veggie dish. Nice char to the veggies which added to a tasty sauce with mostly shrimp, baby octopus and 1 scallop. Friends had the beef skewer (I didn't taste) and the Vietnamese pancake, which had a delicious filling but was a bit greasy. Both came with some of the best nuoc cham (dipping sauce) I've ever tried.
        Now if they'd only add banh mi, as they're open for lunch and dinner.
        Service was super fast and pleasant, and the price is, well, cheap. All in all, I recommend!

            Right on Spring St., same side as the Post Office. Let us know what you think of it if you go-- have only been there once.
