Reviews for Pho Saigon

When we visited this place a while back we were the first two customers of the night, so it wasn't as noisy/crowded/smelly as the other asian restaurants that you might have experienced before, and the tables were not greasy. They sell Vietnamese and Malaysian dishes and there are plenty of pictures on the menu, which is an aid for non-asian eaters.
We ordered the Diced Cut Beef with tomato rice (pretty much because of the interesting appearance of the red rice in the photo), and the Stewed beef with rice.
The diced cut beef on rice came first – we were both amazed by its size, quantity and how appetizing it looked. The beef was stir-fried with sliced up capsicum and onion, whereas the slightly tanned-looking rice is covered with the nom om tomato sauce and on the side are some steamed veges. The meal was flavorsome and filling.
The stewed beef with rice was a way more healthy choice than the Diced cut stir-fired beef. The portion was smaller compared to the other dish, but it was still quite filling. The beef was not tender enough, but the soup was flavorsome. It would be even better if there were more vegetables in it.
Customer service was good, cautious and polite. Food quality was not bad, but don’t expect any surprises from it.

Very nice little vietnamese/malaysian restaurant on Lorne street in the Auckland CBD. The food here is pretty good, wish heaps of dishes to choose, from classic pho dishes to the Malay laksa dishes. The staff are really friendly, our waitress was very kind and served us with a bright smile. The place is nothing fancy, but that's what I kinda like about it. Really traditional. Woof.

Slightly above average in terms of taste, but could do better with quantity for the price that you pay.
Good service though.

Love the food, especially or the price. Super filling and lovely service. Only issue I have is that they aren't open when they "supposed" to be open according to their opening times. So you have to be careful and always have a back up just in case they're closed on the day you feel like some good pho.
