Have eaten here twice now, the first time was really very good but the second visit was just OK nothing special and found the food lacked a lot of flavour, not sure why it was so different second time round, but it made enough impact not to be in a hurry to return.

I adore good Vietnamese food and so does my family.

The food was consistently good - the service is slow-ish but I still had to give it 5 stars coz' it's great value!

The Pho Bo is excellent (although I could do with some fresh herbs on the side), vegetables in garlic and the pork dishes are brilliant.

Little Saigon is a casual dining restaurant, nothing fancy. You can byo .

All the food is cooked to order and comes out hot and fast
We have never had a bad meal here and the prices are reasonable too

Walked in off the street to have lunch and weren't disappointed.
The service was prompt and the food great, honest Vietnamese fare (recommend the salt and pepper squid, bbq pork) that hasn't been compromised for the local market.
My only disappointment was that there was no Vietnamese beer available, the answer to my query was that they couldn't get it down from Auckland! The venue is a little dated and could really do with an uplift, however these aren't barriers to repeat visits!
So don't waste your time on generic coffee shops, this is a great place to eat!
