Every year friends and I schedule a shopping day in the village and we stop at Miss Saigon for lunch. It's always consistently good vietnamese food in a quiet atmosphere where we can relax for a bit before heading back out to the shops. The spring rolls are my favorite with the vermicelli bowls a close second. The wait staff... More

My wife and I and the couple with whom we dined at Miss Saigon really enjoyed the restaurant. The proprietress took us to our table upon arrival and chatted for several minutes before passing out the menus with recommendations. Meanwhile, two young women bent over backwards to service the table. Food came quickly and was quite good. Prices were a... More

Stopped in on a hot day in July. We had a seaweed salad that was a wonderful surprise. The wait staff was very kind and the food arrived quickly. My dining companion had banana pudding cake and said it was wonderful.

Same excellent quality since first opened. Never made ahead of time. Flavorful, fat and fresh. Service is always attentive.

We routinely eat here for lunch and often times call in for take-out. Most times we always order the grilled pork rolls - tasty and filling.

The cabbage salad is fantastic, crunchy, tasty and really good. I got it with smoked tofu instead of chicken and it was amazing. The spring rolls I also got the tofu and they were really lovely and a great meal to eat on the plane. Really nice staff, lovely restaurant.

This evening I took my son who is a freshman at Rice and two of his buddies to Miss Saigon Café in Rice Village. It's just a hop skip and a jump (well five minutes by car) and there was ample parking at Rice Village. The restaurant's décor is simple but attractive upscale for many Asian restaurants but not Houston... More

Great location. First time there. Lived here forever. Food was good. Atmosphere needs a makeover. Do it. This will bring in more folks and make it more pleasant.

Nice unassuming atmosphere. I had beef in garlic sauce with rice. Very good though I prefer a spicier dish. Wife had a noodle beef and shrimp salad - also very good. We had Banana Flambe for desert - ice cream, bananas, and orange liqueur. It was really fine.
