I took out a shrimp summer roll and a chicken fried rice today and the taste was not so bad. But when I found a long hair in the summer roll, I spitted it out and felt extremely uncomfortable. I hope I won't get food poisoning tomorrow . Please take care everybody. The kitchen hygene might be not good.

For those who called Saigon Grill is not authentic, they don't know what authentic Vietnamese food really is. I'm Vietnamese and have been eating Vietnamese food all my life and so are my friends and family. I can tell you that this restaurant has capture the right ingredients for authenticity with the right taste for non-Vietnamese to enjoy. I also grew up in San Jose and Orange County in California, you can't get any more Vietnamese than that. And I can tell you that Saigon Grill will do very well in the two biggest Vietnamese town in America.

Food is not authentic and the staff is rude beyond belief. Save yourself the grief and skip this restaurant.

Normally, I am not one to be mean-spirited, but this pathetic so-called "Vietnamese" restaurant has gotta rate at the very bottom of my gastronomic experiences. The food, if you can call it that, was a sad attempt at distinction using a bland Cantonese fast food formula. As one who has traveled extensively throughout South-East Asia, I found NOTHING at the Saigon Grill to remind me of anything Vietnamese. Their copious use of peanut sauce and coconut meat makes a mockery of true SEA Cuisine. BTW, I'm not posting the above as a way of hurting the owners for their treatment of their employees; the fact is...this place is a fraud, as are most so-called Vietnamese restaurants in the USA. ItÃ‚Â’s just that I expected better from the UWS!

Still closed and has been closed for awhile (about 3 years or so). This was my favorite Saigon Grill. Oh well.

in '05... when i lived on 88th & 3rd, i frequented the 88th & 2nd locale... but since that's been under construction for a while now, i've had to trek it to 90th & amsterdam to get my fix... all the way from my new place on 50th & 1st, no less... their lunch special is wonderfully priced, and the food is mighty plentiful... i usually end up eating left-overs the next day... i always order the chicken bun xao... aka, stir-fried noodles with steamed chicken... i also get the beef com chien... aka, beef fried-rice... and a side of their wonderful cha gio... aka, spring rolls... i wash it all down with ginger iced tea, which has a great kick to it... that's four items for less than $20!... what a deal, and well worth the cross-town travel.
