BEST Eggrolls I've EVER Had! – This restauarant has been around for a long time; I've personally been going there since I was 5 years old! In fact, if I could only eat one food for the rest of my life...it would be the eggrolls from Saigon Uptown - they are perfectly crispy and flaky, fried to golden perfection every time and served with the world's most perfect dipping sauce :-) .
When you go, be sure to order the Vietmamese eggrolls and wonton soup.
The service can be slow, and the decor isn't the greatest - but who cares! The food makes it all worthwhile. I would even go so far to say that this is my all-time favorite restaurant, because the eggrolls are that great!!!
Some of the best spring rolls and Pho you'll have. – Let me first say that I agree with the reviewer below: Go here only if you have some time to wait. But it'll be worth it. I've had a LOT of Vietnamese food growing up, and I can tell you with 100% certainty that the spring rolls here and the Pho are some of the best you'll get this side of the Pacific. The prices are great for the quality of food (you'll pay much more at Mai Village for comparable food. Then again, you're paying for the fish tank and solid oak ceilings there, too.) The owner/server is an older Vietnamese woman who clearly takes pride in her work; other family members are in the kitchen cooking your food made-to-order, which is why it tends to take awhile. Parking is convenient and within walking distance to other Lyndale/Lake Street eateries. Definitely recommended!
Sketchy Outside, Great Food Inside – If you're looking for a lot of good food for relatively low prices, this is your place. I have tried several dishes but keep going back to the Garlic Mock Duck - definitely the best. The service is slow, so don't go if you are in a hurry. Not much ambiance, either, but the food makes up for it. Great place for take-out.
