“Great Vietnamese Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

This is by far the best Vietnamese place in Corpus Christi.
The owner takes great pride in her food and making it authentic, but also affordable. Everything here is prepared with attention-to-detail and care, without corners being cut. The beef in the pho is sliced thin, the pork seared just right, the pho made from scratch and so much more.
It's not fancy or anything, but when you're looking for good Vietnamese food, you don't want the fancy place.
I can't recommend Cafe Saigon more if you're looking for good Vietnamese food.

“Quick Vietnamese fare!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

We happened upon this little cafe tucked away in a shopping center because other larger restaurants were too packed. We went for lunch, so I'm not sure if the dinner procedure differs, but you just order at the cashier, pay, and they quickly bring your lunch out. I've eaten a lot of bun bowls in various restaurants, but this was the best one by far! I highly recommend you visit this little gem!

I just prefer the brand I use . Love it here!

My husband and I go to Cafe Saigon at least 3 times a month for pho and Vietnamese sandwiches. It is a VERY CASUAL setting, but the food has been pretty consisitent.

“Great taste!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

I ordered Pho and my kids had a sandwich. Both were really good. I liked the soup that they use for Pho a lot. The price is really reasonable too. Also, they checked several times if we are doing ok. Great service for the order at the counter type restaurant, I think. Will definately go back!
