I've eaten here several times and always enjoy the food. It's best to know what you want going in the door because you're not going to get much of an explanation from the waitress and what you do hear will be very hard to understand...More

It has been many years since I ate at Saigon Cafe. We happened to be in this part of Lancaster during the lunch time, so we decided to eat good Vietnamese food. We ordered Chả Giò (Egg Rolls), Bánh Xèo (Halfmoon Crepe), Mì Xào Dòn...More
