This is my favourite place for Authentic Vietnamese & Thai food (St. John, Quispamsis, Rothesay, Hampton) Excellent food! I wish more people would try it out, it has been empty each time we've been in. Rivals my favourite place in Toronto - great food. Atmosphere...More

The menu similar, if not identical, unless they have changed it since I was there. The meal was awful. The food at Saigon Noodle was ok, this is not, although it is the same people who work there and same menu.
