Came back this summer to try again. Still good. Perfect later at night. Not busy and comfortable eating solo. Had the yellow curry - good though a bit salty for my tastes. But food was fast, and affordable. Will keep coming back so I can try more dishes.

We stopped here on a whim while walking down 4th street in Cleveland. Our server was excellent and extremely helpful. We were unsure of what to order since this was one of our first trips to a Vietnamese restaurant. She asked what we liked and said that she would bring us some plates and if we didn't like them, she would bring out something else. The Mango Margarita was amazing! Our food included a cole slaw type salad and a salt and pepper chicken that was fried, but not greasy at all. She also gave us a take out menu and starred some other items that we may like to try in the future. This was one of the best meals that I have ever had!

A great little restaurant, serving traditional Vietnamese cuisine.

I enjoyed the bun (charcoal grilled) meat over a bed of vegetables. It was excellently prepared.

Service was pretty good, but a bit jammed due to the large numbers of guests. The servers handled it pretty well, however.

Décor was quite creative, and as expected, very Southeast Asian oriented. It was creatively unique.

Definitely recommended! Try one of the Bun array of dishes.

My husband and I went to Saigon with a fish-eating-vegetarian friend and shared three entrees. We had a stir-fry with tofu, a noodle dish with yellow curry, and a fried snapper dish with a tomato sauce. All were delicious -- especially the fish -- and we had no trouble devouring all of them (we were traveling, so leftovers weren't going home with us anyway, right?). Eating outside on busy pedestrian 4th Street was actually very nice, and put us in close proximity to the arcades (which, being architecture geeks, we wanted to see) as well as to the Cleveland Clothing Company, which is a great place to get a quirky Cleveland souvenir (Burning River Surf Club t-shirt, anyone?). Supporting downtown restaurants and retail will help the city attract more good stuff -- and Saigon is a great place to start.

We went to Saigon at the recommendation of the Marriott Concierge, and had a positive experience. Our party of five split the crispy shrimp rolls, pork and shrimp spring rolls, lettuce wraps, and the crepe for appetizers. All were delicious, with nice contrast in texture. The accompanying vegetables and sauce were especially good. The entrees were almost as good, with disproportionate amounts of noodles to pork and vegetables in a rice vermicelli dish. Our nine-year old was concerned with the lack of kid-friendly options. Usually an adventurous eater, she was turned off by the spicy sauces. Service was good, and the prices were reasonable.
