The Saigon noodle house has a great selection of Pho and other Asian dishes. The prices are reasonable and the food was good. The ambiance is lacking and the service is a little slow and possible less attentive than they should be, but it's not a bad place to grab a bite. I recommend it for lunch.

This restaurant is THE WORST restaurant that anyone could imagine! The food is not fresh. It is over cooked and inedible. The place is dangerous. They use the cheapest products imagable. The management are completely incompetent.

I ordered the beef ball pho to go and the service was pretty fast. The meat was with the broth in a large bowl. The bean sprouts, basil leaves and jalapenos were fresh in a bag along with a lime and noodles came cooked in a separate box. Also they packed the sauces which I didnt expect but added for... More

I've been coming here for over 3 years now and I just want to say that this place is awesome because it's the only pho place near UCSB that is decently great. The pho place in Isla Vista is a place I'd never visit again, so that's out of the equation. The pho tastes great, only because there isn't anything... More

We go to the noodle house when we are doing errands nearby. The food is okay. I get the tofu pho because the chicken and beef are dry, overcooked --poor quality-- in the other phos. What REALLY bothers me is that the restaurant is dirty, run down. It does not have to be fancy, but it should be clean. The... More

The biggest mistake in preparing Pho is to serve it warm and not hot. They prepare all the noodles ahead of time, which is not the problem. The noodle get cold pretty fast. If the soap is not hot enough, you get warm Pho, which is terrible. One way to fix it is to put the noodle in the boiling... More

Stopped at Saigon Noodle House for lunch. I ordered well done beef pho and was so glad I did. The broth was tasty and the beef was very good. The fresh jalapeño, basil and bean sprouts made the dish almost complete. A spoonful of hot sauce and Sriaracha was perfect. The price was good. I would recommend this place.

I'm always excited to go to Saigon Noodle House. Generous portions, friendly service, decent prices. A popular place for lots of UCSB students to eat as well.
