This is a great place for big groups. Food is inexpensive and service is quick. Vegetable dumplings are great. Highly recommend the soups, especially the lasaga. Easy place to eat for vegetarians.

the food in Saigon Grill is delicious. The prices as well. The service is quick, and there is a long wait for a reason. If you want a great meal for a low price go to Saigon grill

i loooove saigon grill. the food is delicious, there is a huge variety of dishes and the service is fast. saigon grill is a perfect restaurant to go to when your really hungry. you will get your food quickly and it will be good. this is not one of those restaurants where you order and you have to wait for an hour. although the food is really good, saigon grill is a very busy restaurant and you can't always gat a table right away. it is also kind of loud so i suggest ordering out instead of going there. but there is just one problem: recently, saigon grill hasn't been delivering. this upsets me but that has not stopped me from eating there. i suggest Bun Xoa (78) and vegetable crystal dumplings (15) i hope you will enjoy dining at saigon grill as much as i do.

Pick up only, no delivery. Food is good, service is too fast. You get your food served in 7 minutes, all of it...

Let's begin by saying the quality of Vietnamese cuisine in NYC pales in comparison to what can be found in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and D.C. Yet, among this constellation of mediocrity, Saigon Grill manages to stand out for its remarkably poor quality. Let's start with not-so-fresh ingredients. (It's not that they use rotten food, but moreso with Vietnamese food than other cuisines, the key is ingredients at the peak of freshness. It's a bit like sushi: there's fish that edible, and fish that's fresh enough to be eaten raw. In Vietnamese food, the ingredients have to be at their absolute freshest.) I understand that in NYC, you can't get some of the ingredients at that level of freshness, but other restaurants manage to do better, why can't they? Then let's take that not-fresh-enough food, and prepare it with poor technique and infinitely re-used oil. Also, let's either ridiculously overspice the food, or omit the flavorings altogether. The result is something insulting -- both to Vietnamese cooks everywhere and to the diner. Most Vietnamese food is prepared by Chinese cooks who don't truly understand it, but at least they make an effort. These guys don't even try.

First of all, they're open til very late. The service can be more hospitable, but it depends on who you get. The men tend to be alot more easy going and pleasant than the women. The food is awesome! Granted, its not true viet, but it still tastes good so its all good. The price is ridiculously cheap and the atmosphere looks very trendy and kinda elegant. Always buzzing in the night hours and quieter during lunch.

A few nights ago I went to Saigon grill with my bf and a friend, and the food was truly delicious. The portions were really good. The calamari was amazing, the best I have ever had. We also ordered drinks and those were pretty good as well, and if you are eating on a budget, this place is for you. I plan to go back again.
