Reviews for Saigon City Restaurant

I had a craving for a Vietnamese sandwich, saw this place and went in. I ordered right away then stood there waited 35 minutes for one, yes that's right, ONE Vietnamese sandwich. It wasn't even busy, there were one other customer who came in after me. The older guy who work there was chatting with this customer about a home he bought in San Jose and going on and on and on. I have a feeling my sandwich was sitting there ready the whole time but the old guy was so busy full review
Quick weeknight service, even around "prime" dinnertime. We got two orders of rare steak beef noodle soup (pho). Delivered hot via DoorDash; everything was separated so it was easy to assemble and the meat didn't overcook and the toppings (sprouts, cilantro, basil, jalapeno, onion) stayed fresh. I don't eat pho too often (Thai is usually my go-to takeout choice) so am not much of an expert but this was delicious, flavorful, a good filling portion and will definitely order again.
Saigon City has to be my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in San Mateo (maybe even the peninsula). I've been coming here since I was a kid so coming here is really nostalgic for me. They're super quick and the food is delicious so please support them! I normally opt for either the imperial rolls or some kind of soup (rare beef pho or bun bo hue). Today, I had the imperial rolls (appetizer), which comes with vermicelli, pickled carrots and daikon, and HUGE lettuce leaves; wrap full review
