Siagon Grill is one of my favorite restaurants in the city, but ever since this whole 'delivery boy on strike thing' the place is going down hill. I ate there last night and as always the food is consistently good. But the last few times I have ordered from them, the portion size keeps getting smaller and smaller. My theory is that because they aren't doing delivery they are skimping on their portion sizes to maintain profit. They obviously aren't in a rush to settle with employees given its already been several months and still no delivery. I think they are doing their customers a disjustice by not offering delivery and ultimately forcing us to pay for their employment issues by the serving size of our food. Why don't they just settle their issues and bring back the old Saigon?

I finally find a restaurant I love and the employees are striking making me feel guilty about going there. I want the employees treated fairly so I go the days they don't strike but I don't know how much more sneaking around I can take!

everything is of good or very good quality, and the portions are enormous. regarding delivery: they do deliver -- but just not now -- the regular employees are on strike. they may occasionally deliver if they can get enough people to cross picket lines, but it seems they aren't delivering now about 95% of the time. so don't get upset with them -- get upset with the owners for treating the employees poorly.

I used to order from this place all the time. But I get the same "no delivery" nonsense when I call now. However, I was passing the place recently, and it looked like there were a few delivery guys, even one on a bicycle. So I don't know what's up...if some people get deliveries and others don't. How can they operate in the city and make any money without doing deliveries? Can't they settle?

Yeah, they showcased this on NPR not too long ago. The workers are on strike stating that the owners only paid them like 1.60 an hour and still didn't pay then what they promised. But then the owner, when interviewed by NPR, said that he couldn't really say anything due to legal reasons, but said that what the employees were saying weren't true. In his tone it sounded like he was being sincere and really bothered by the way the employees were acting..i personally ended up feeling bad for the owner even though I always end up fighting for the underdog.... so, in any case, hopefully they'll figure things out soon, but it's been like this for quite a while now...

I have tried to get delivery for over 6 weeks now and they are def not delivering anymore. She told me it was a strike but they will not ever deliver again. Their business must be in trouble!

i was told the same thing about delivery. it was very strange, i asked if that was just for lunch but the lady was evasive and just said, "no delivery". very disappointing!
