Re: “Saigon 39

If you are being treated like a second-class citizen, feel uncomfortable during the meal you paid for, and find yourself dealing with unpleasant management, then you must have found yourself in Saigon 39. The owner seems to have a giant problem with humankind in general, and it makes for a very inhospitable atmosphere. Wish I could say the food somehow made up for all that, but no. Vietnam Cafe is equally as good, if not better- and hey- they don't treat you like scum! Guess I know where my next Vietnam-fix will be.

Re: “Sung Son

Awful...not bad...not REALLY bad.....AWFUL!! My wife and I arrived around 7 pm on a Monday night to find a completely empty restaurant ( we should have followed our instincts and fled ). The only human to be found was the host who looked irritated that we had interrupted his phone conversation. We asked for a booth and he took us to a booth that, on my side, had about a foot square hole in the seat patched with black duct tape (again, we should have followed our instincts and fled ).
After waiting and waiting for the host to get off the phone and take our order ( no waiters on duty) we ordered three appetizers, shrimp and sweet potato with lettuce wrap, crab Rangoon, Vietnamese spring rolls and hot tea…what could go wrong? When we finally got our order the shrimp and sweet potato sticks looked like small, overcooked fish sticks that had been sitting on a counter under a heat lamp. We had to look closely to find the four pieces of shrimp that had the same French fry shape and consistency of the totally tasteless sweet potato fries. Sadly I have just described the best parts of this appetizer. The lettuce used to wrap the shrimp and sweet potato sticks was warm and so limp you could literally wrap it around and around your finger without causing it to crack! The only positive about the lettuce was that there wasn’t much of it. When we were able to flag down the host who was between phone calls, we asked for fresh lettuce and were greeted by a quizzical look followed by “Really?”.
We finally did get fresh lettuce (there actually was some on the premises) but it could not hide the texture, taste or looks of the sweet potato / shrimp sticks. Moving on to the Crab Rangoon, my wife thought it was OK, I thought it looked and tasted like it might have been on the lunch buffet and saved for lucky dinner diners. The spring rolls were average (high praise for this evening) but, at least, the peanut sauce was rich, thick and tasty. The tea was excellent even if we were never asked if we needed more.
We finished quickly and left a goodly amount of food, but, getting out was no easy matter as we had to wait and wait and wait for our check while our” host / wait staff” finished his never ending phone conversation. We usually leave a 20% tip as we appreciate the job most restaurant employees do, even if the food is just average. Tonight, we left zero which was both a well-deserved tip and a generous score for the food, the ambiance and the service we received at Sung Son.

Re: “Saigon 39

HOMOPHOBE WARNING! The owner of this restaurant is a raging homophobe. I wouldn't have known, except when he dumped a cigarette (half-smoked, still lit) on the sidewalk in front of me as I was walking by, I told him not to litter my neighborhood and to pick up his trash. He became belligerent, and told me to go home and get a man to control me. I told him I was quite happy with my wife. At that point, he blew a fuse. I was succinctly called a "tomboy," told that I was "sick," that I "needed a man," and was informed to "go away or [he'd] call the police." Not even kidding. Right there in front of everyone. BOYCOTT THIS RESTAURANT. We don't need homophobic, hateful bigots like this on 39th Street. We don't need litterbugs either. Oh, the food is mediocre, for what it's worth. You're far better off going a couple of blocks west along 39th street to Vietnam Cafe.

Re: “Mr. Le's Sushi

The food was phenomenal! I tried several different rolls and liked everything I ordered. Each order of sushi rolls was 6-8 pieces and between $4.50 and $11.00. We went here because of the recommendation of others, and I too would recommend it to others!

Re: “Sung Son

The Pho was delicious as well as the Bun. I was thoroughly satisfied by my trip here. The Pho was so comforting to eat even on hot night. I can only imagine how good it will be during the winter

Re: “Saigon 39

I have been by this place many times. My wife,daughter and I were in the area so we decided to try this place many because it has been around for a long time. Bad choice. The (new owners?) now have the place next door too but instead of a bistro they treat like a fast food asian place. The Vietnamese special soup was terrible. The soup itself was nothing special, had few vegetables or meat. Very disappointing. My wife and daughter both orderd the mixed vegetables and they came out with no sauce, condiments or nothing. The other entrees basicly have meat, seafood or chicken and have their special sauces thrown in. Nothing special, nothing unique. Avoid this place at all costs. Don't waste your money like I did. The Vietnamese ones elsewhere (Westport is so good).

Re: “Sung Son

I had heard about this place. But when I heard that the place had a new opened a new buffet and noddle bar for lumch, I had to go and check it out. I had heard that the Vietnamese food was bland. It was especially at recent place I tried in Kansas City but to my delight, not at this place. I had tried Vietnamese food in other parts of the country and I knew Vietnamese food was better then this bland restuarant before. But here at this new buffet and noodle bar, you can see immediately the character and what Vietnamese food really tastes like. When I entered, I chose 1 of 11 different noodle type soups, made to order by one of the cooks ( noodles with either tofu, beef and others). While that was being prepared fresh, I sampled the buffet area. The dishes were not really spicy but well seasoned. The best was the slightly spicy sweet tomato tofu. The spicy yellow curry chicken was excellent and was thick and spicy sweet not spicy hot and was very good. The beef stew in a nice brown broth and vegetables was excellent too and had a lot of flavor. The non fried spring rolls had a lot of vegetables and was very good in the hot sour sauce or the peanut like sauce. The crab rangoon was okay and the Goi Ga chicken salad was bland. The chinese General t'sao was surprisingly good , not too sweet, moist and not burnt to a crisp. Hunan chicken and the Moo Go Gai Pan chicken were better then I had expected. One of the premier ones I heard of the tempura like sweet potatoes were mushy and not very good.But it was the noodle soup I wanted to find out about. I ordered the meatball version s I heard about it. It came with vermicelli, vegetables and jalapeno strips in a clear tasty broth. The beef ball was actually cut into little strips. It was little chewy and did not have much flavor. The owner and staff were very cordial. I definitely will come back with my wife and my son is interested too.
