Saigon Le Restaurant Review

: Long a standout among Memphis’ Little Vietnam area restaurants, Saigon Le is perhaps best known for its beloved bird’s nest egg rolls (a shrimp and pork egg roll served with vegetables and fish sauce). Soups feature all the traditional offerings, including several varieties of beef pho. There are plenty of meat-heavy dishes, such as sliced beef tenderloin with lemon grass and vermicelli. Vegetarians enjoy the vast list of meat-free options --- lemon grass tofu would impress even the most diehard meat eater, and the barbecue wheat gluten is hearty, savory and sweet. Dessert is not an option at Saigon Le, but if they have fresh fruit, they’ll offer it as a special. No wine is served, but there’s a decent selection of Asian beers, such as Japan’s Sapporo and Vietnam’s 333. If you want to bring a bottle of wine, Saigon Le does not charge a corkage fee.
