    I've been a frequent customer of Saiguette since they opened. Since January they have required a minimum order of $25 for delivery. Big mistake. They just lost me as a customer.

    Everything is delicious, but I'm fond of the roast pork shoulder (whether it's a sandwich or otherwise)

    I had the eggplants, which seems to be one of the few options they have on menu. I LOVED it.

    Pho! Absolutely amazing. I'm a vegetarian and replaced the beef with broccoli. The broth is some of the best I've ever had.

    Amazing fast fresh food. Pho is the best around and the tea is fab. I had to take some of the food home, which I normally don't do with pho. Pork ribs look amazing

    Lemongrass pork bahnmi and pho are go to staples. They were so flavorful!

    The flavors are decent but as a Viet I balk at the prices: min $10 for takeout banh mi or pho. My mom would be appalled if she knew. But there's no other option, and you're paying their $$$ UWS rent.

    Definitely the best banh mí on the upper west side! Fresh, quality ingredients, amazingly fun tasty! Go with a classic or pork-lemongrass banh mí and pair it with a ginger tea.

    Seating is extremely limited but the lady was nice enough to let us eat at the counter while waiting. Food was awesome. Try the spicy beef pho and get any of the grilled meat!

    The lady working the cash register was kind of militant but I guess that is what makes them so efficient. No seating but delicious, drink a sixpoint resin on the way there for optimal experience

    One of the better pho/banh mi places I've eaten at in NYC. Got classic pho/banh mi, and they taste and smell just right and are well-portioned - especially the banh mi. Some seats, maybe do takeout.

    The biggest and juiciest roast pork banh mi I've had since being in Vietnam. Authentic stuff - try it! Don't bother with the bubble tea though.

    Good, quick and clean. Big potrions. Not a lot of space to eat-in but a very solid takeout option. Everything is delish - try the pho, dumplings, spring rolls, beef bun and the banh mi are no joke!

    Of the few bahn mi I've had this was the best - perfectly roasted pork, mostly lean but charred fatty ends packed w flavor. The marinade, chili mayo, and sriracha coupled to make the perfect dressing.

    Saiguette’s might be the biggest bánh mì you’ve ever seen. It takes two wooden skewers to hold one together. Unlike most supersize sandwiches, these are well balanced and carefully constructed.

    Everything's great: crispy tofu skin cut & fried roll, yuca brownie (banh khoai mi), pho, lemongrass pork shoulder (I like it w/ banh hoi), banh mi. Flavors on point (I'm Viet and grew up in Houston).

    Great place, delicious food.... BUT they put waaaay too much broccoli in the veggie curry any hardly and tofu. And the menu doesn't even mention there's broccoli in it.

    None of the flaccid gray meat or stewed chunks you'll find at many other banh mi shops, this is meat grilled by somebody who clearly knows what they were doing. Gorgeous.

    The Banh Mi are to die for; juicy charred steak or pork, crusty baguette, jalapeños, fresh cucumber, carrot, a fistful of cilantro and hot chili on the side. Sandwich perfection.

    You won’t find more perfect Pho anywhere else in this hood. The broth is delicately scented with sweet spices and so good, you might end up forgetting about the actual noodles.
