Saigon Grill - is the coast clear?

I don't know if this belongs here, but it is a Manhattan question. I don't cross picket lines but I'd love to go back to Saigon Grill. There are no people outside these days but I don't know if anything was settled. Does anybody know what's going on there? (sorry if this question isn't allowed)

  1. i hope the coast isn't clear because Saigon Grill serves awful food...the picket lines were doing everyone's stomachs a favor...

    1. According to this website (as of two days ago), nothing's been settled and pickets continue Wednesdays through Sundays:

      Hope you see this post before it's removed.

      And I agree with Simon about the restaurant's food quality....

      1. Yeah, I ate there once and that was one time too many.

        1. We go mostly to the one downtown which is now Saigon Market.
          My daughter is vegan and she loves the simple steamed veggies over brown rice, they do use good quality veggies and their sauces are not too heavy. Have been to both locations many times and find the food decent and mostly good. Very reasonable. I do think there has been a change of ownership downtown and I think the food is not as good anymore.

          1. I agree with the above posters - food is not worth your stomach space. Maybe if it were in Ohio (I knew a girl from there who thought Saigon Grill was the pinnacle of Vietnamese cuisine and went there every time she was in NYC - no offense to Ohioans in general.)
