Tampa >Saigon Bay Vietnamese
I plan to go again this week.
I had plans to go there for quite sometime and I finally made it last week. I LOVED IT. I plan to go this week again. The restaurant looks nice.
As for food I ordered the fresh rolls (steamed shrimp with mint leaves and Rice noddles) it was definitely not a good idea as I hate the strong taste of mint leaves. My mouth was burning.
The spring rolls are awesome. I order lemon charboiled chicken with fried rice. It was really good.
My brother ordered shrimp with vegetables. Though he loved the shrimp he was utterly dissapointed as they only gave him 3 shrimps.
My sister didn't like the wings much. I didn't like them either.
Best pho (beef noodle) and vietnamese food in town. State of art , good food, reason price .Transquil environment. Best Vietnamese restuarant in Tampa with authentic food and environment .
A modest little place near the University of South Florida, it provides an inexpensive and quick alternative to junky fast food..
Tucked away in one of the area's many shopping centers, the restaurant is easy to miss. Inside, it's quiet, clean and civil, with pretty, carefully set tables and real cloth napkins. Nice place for a quick meal before class, or, with its big tables, to take a crowd.
What to Order
The restaurant has an "all-day, everyday," combo menu that works well for those unfamiliar with Vietnamese cuisine. With each $4.95 combo meal, you get a soup, fried spring roll, white rice and a main dish, like charbroiled lemon chicken or an excellent fresh shrimp cooked with vegetables. Vegetarians would enjoy tofu with vegetables.
I don't know if this is Vietnamese or American Vietnamese, but I know it's good. I've eaten at several Vietnamese restaraunts and have also had meals at Vietnamese American friends houses and I put this on par with the best of them. Favorites: Pho Ga, Imperial Rice Crepe, Shrimp on Sugar Cane, Beef Wrapped in Onion and of course the Fresh and Spring Rolls.
The staff is always friendly, service is fast, and all is reasonably priced. Very cozy inside. They also seem to keep making it nicer and nicer over time.
