Reviews for Saigon Express

Saigon Express is one of those hole-in-the-wall family owned businesses in the heart of Downtown Berkeley. Whenever I was in need of a hearty good soup, Pho Ga and Rare Beef Pho always fulfilled that desire. The shrimp spring rolls are also very scrumptious and filling because the peanut sauce is full of flavor and perfect consistency. A lot of student like myself come here for lunch during the break of classes, and I am always welcomed by the Vietnamese hospitality. The full review

Amazing prices for big dishes. After coming from school I would either get a banh mi or pho and just devour the whole thing... Twas the best comfort food. The dishes come out fast and hot. It might not be the most flavor intense food ever but I am still satisfied every time I leave.

The Bahn Mi sandwiches are what makes me keep coming back. While the bahn mi are tasty (they have vegetarian option) the price is what gets me, $4.50 each! Can’t find that cheap anywhere else in Berkeley (I’ve looked). Even when they’re busy the line goes quick. Just make sure to bring cash for orders under $8
