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: “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: “Sushi Gin

Food is acceptable, but service is terrible. Our waiter brought a noodle dish, but I ordered shrimp tempura. When I explained very nicely that this not want I ordered, he went to speak with the manager/owner. She refused to give me the meal I ordered, saying insulting comments like, "You have no proof that you ordered tempura." Such stupid drama. We ultimately left without me eating, and when I mentioned this to friends, they've had terrible customer service there as well. I won't go back. I asked around, and lots of people prefer Jun's on State Line near 75th, where "the food is good, and the owners are happy to provide good customer service!"

Re: “China Star

I have gone to this restaurant since it opened. I had a somewhat identical experience as the 1st review. The food used to always be fresh and plentiful. The time before last, they were low on a lot of stuff, when I asked if more was coming out, they brought more food out in a timely manner. When I went last night at 8:15, they close at 9:30, everything on the entree side of the buffet was old, crusty and half empty with no meat, just veggies that were wilted and disgusting looking. When I asked if more stuff was coming out the server told me that it was too close to closing time and that they might be out of shrimp but she would check and see if they would make more. I sat and waited for about 20 minutes, snacking on appetizers (since that was the only thing on the buffet that looked edible) for the server to let me know if more food was coming out. She came back and told me that when she asked, they just said "ok" and she did not know if they were making more or not so I waited about another 10 minutes and when no food came out I went to talk to the person I was told was manager. When I spoke with him at not even 9PM he told me it was too close to closing time to make any more food. When I told him we arrived an hour and a half before they closed and asked for food refills he just started talking to the server in chinese and she told me that they would not charge me. That did not solve the probem. They still charged my mother and my friend $10 a piece for crusty, dried up, old, nasty food that was not worth 50 cents. They probably had a major case of the mud butts from eating it anyway after sitting under food lamps for so long. I will never eat at this place again even though it used to be my favorite chinese restaurant in town, my business is now going to Dragon Inn in Corinth Square which actually has excellent food. I don't know if they are under new ownership/management, but this place really stinks now. DONT GO TO THIS PLACE UNLESS YOU HAVE NO TASTEBUDS AND WANT DIAREAHA AND STOMACH PAINS!!

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).
