I've been seeing the "Opening Soon" sign for months at Saigon Flavors, a new Vietnamese restaurant, located on Aloma Avenue, right near the 417. It finally opened last week! I am so happy to have a Vietnamese restaurant on my side of town. The REALLY great news is that Saigon Flavors is owned by Charlie, former owner of Viet Garden (which has always been my favorite!)
The food was great! The summer rolls with shrimp and pork seemed identical to Viet Garden's summer rolls. The summer rolls with chicken were AWESOME! I also ordered the rice vermicelli with grilled pork, and it was fresh and delicious! The decor is much more modern than the Viet Town restaurants, with a nice bar and good wine selection. Service was great! And I was happy to see that the place was packed. I've already been back for take-out.
So happy to not have to drive over to 50/Mills anymore for great Vietnamese food!
