Pooh and I have been going to Saigon on Fifth a lot lately. I actually think their food is pretty good. The Pho portions are a lot smaller than the usual “Pho” stops, but the quality and taste definitely makes it worth the higher prices. I understand that some people that don’t believe in “high end” or “fancy” Pho may disagree, but I prefer quality over quantity. Don’t get me wrong, every now and then I do get in the mood for a big giant bowl of really bad for you pho, especially at a low price!

I also like that the wait staff is very friendly and would check on us every now and then, which you hardly ever get at a normal Pho place…and you don’t have the waiter talking on his bluetooth headset while he’s serving you either. If you’ve been following my Twitter then you know what I mean. :)

    Run dont walk from that place. Over the past 2 years 4 of my friends worked there and they talk like the kitchen is a disaster. The cooks smoke while cooking, and they hold paychecks sometimes up to two weeks. Plus the family that owns it are bad people
