Little Saigon has been in business since July 2014. It is a family owned and run restaurant, and most times, the owner is there to greet the customers and serve the tea. The restaurant itself is small and usually crowded as this is a very popular restaurant during the lunch and dinner rush.

The décor is very, very simple, with wooden booths seating four people on one side, and a long wall-mounted bench with tables and chairs on the other side. The walls are clean white, with Vietnamese-inspired framed art on them and a simple bar. There is nothing in terms of décor, as this is still as simple eatery where people come to have a healthy, tasty Vietnamese dish.

Recently the place has undergone staff reduction, and at times you may find yourself served in a takeout container in the restaurant. This is not something many people find an issue with, as the many positive reviews online actually testify, the Little Saigon menu is of very high quality and so amazingly tasty that people overlook the crowd, lack of décor and dishes just to enjoy a good meal.
