yummy food! – I recently went to miss saigon on campbell for the first time. I have been to the one on ina and the one on campbell is much better both in quality and timely service. The menu was large. I ordered charbroiled beef and jasmine rice. The beef was delicious and the rice was perfectly cooked. I also had a milk tea with coconut. Oh my gosh I had to order a second one. This place is very good and i will be going there again!
Good Food, Terrible Service – I ordered take out Pho and the spring rolls. The spring rolls had meat in them, which was very odd, but they were still good. The Pho was good with lots of chili sauce, lime, and cilantro. The only problem was that it took 45 minutes to get my food order and there were only 3 people getting take out ahead of me. I would call ahead if getting food from there.
I could eat here every day – Miss Saigon is probably my favorite restaurant in Tucson. We're in the desert, so I didn't really expect super Asian food when I moved here, but have been pleasantly surprised by Miss Saigon. Being a grad student, it suits me perfectly - it's close to the University, and not too expensive, so I can afford it every once in awhile (actually I go as often as I can persuade my boyfriend to go with me, regardless of money). I love the pho, and have found the portions to be quite large enough (the small is often too much). The vietnamese rolls as an appetizer are another favorite, as is the chicken curry dish (I think it's #47?).
Someone mentioned the service being poor, and I don't really agree. I've never had any real problems (actually the reverse- everyone is very friendly, even when they're running crazy). I do know that they'll bring whatever you need, but won't necessarily anticipate your needs.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. They recently redid the interior and expanded it (although it's still usually full). It looks classier, but the food is the same, as are the prices, thank goodness!
Unsatisfactory customer service – I think that the customer service, in addition to the food, is important to rate a restaurant. This restaurnat is the worst where I've ever been. There were more than four waiters and waitresses. It was quite late night, so not crowded. But my party had to wait forever to order. Even after the order, the waiter didn't care about our table at all until we got the bill.
Overrated – The person in the previous comment is obviously retarded when it comes to pho
At a pho resturant, they're suppose to bring fresh vegetables with the pho. It's like when you order spaghetti and they don't bring you the tomato sauce with the noodle.
Miss Saigon is a decent restaurant. Their pho is ok. there are many more pho places out there that are better quality and a lot bigger portion. Miss Saigon gives a small portion compare to other places.
Their strengths are their service and cleanliness. i would still recommend it, but a lot of the reviews are a bit exaggerating.
Miss Saigon is Vietnamese for yummy! – I had been in town barely a week and I was there three times! I still go in at least once a week. Their best dishes are the large pho with the RARE beef slices, the Curried Catfish and the Mango slush (gotta have those tapioca beads in it!). This place stays busy but the line moves quickly. Whatever wait (however short)you have would be worth it!
Great Pho, Great Prices, Great Location!!! – I don't know what the previous reviewer was thinking, the pho is great! The small is a very respectable meal for one (almost big enough for 2!), and I got fresh vegetables on the side with mine AND I didn't have to ask. The prices are very reasonable, and I was able to take my boyfriend there and get out of there with spending under $15 for the two of us. Despite the close proximity to the University, parking is accessible. The decor is dull (the place isn't that big) but the service is great and the meals come out fast and hot, even during busy times. Overall, if you have a hankering for Vietnamese in the Old Pueblo, give this place a try.
Curried Shrimp is a Must – I went here to get some Pho(hot noodle soup). i wound up ordering the "small" and it was loaded with meat. i was disappointed that they didn't give fresh vegetables on the side as other pho places have. I was really happy with my shrimp curry over rice. It had a nice smooth taste that had just the right amount of spice. The place was pretty lively and I sat facing the window. A pleasant experience overall.
Deliciuos!! – My first visit to Tucson I made a point to try this place and I must say that it's one of the best Vietnamese noodle soup places anywhere. I ended up going back every day of my 3 day stay in Tucson. The service is super friendly and prompt. Try it and you'll love it.
Noodles to die for – Absolutely the finest soups in town. Excellent service. Central location. Coffee that stands up and talks. What else do you need?
