Renton >Pho Sai Gon
Best Bun Ga Xao in the Seattle area!.
I have a favorite Vietnamese dish, and that is bun ga xao. (Stir-fried chicken on rice noodles with assorted vegetables). I have tried this dish at a number of Seattle area restaurants, and not one prepares it nearly as well as Renton's Pho Saigon. The chicken is always moist, tender, and flavorful, and they do not scrimp on quantity. Basil is used (whereas some restaurants use mint; I prefer the basil). All of the ingredients are as fresh as can be, and the combination of flavors (cucumber, carrots, peanuts, basil, chicken, rice noodles, fish sauce) is complex. This dish is available with or without fresh ginger. A generous serving of fish sauce is provided.
Don't come to Pho Saigon looking for atmosphere. Do come looking for attentive, friendly service, for that is what you will get at this family-owned restaurant.
Other dishes I have tried at this restaurant include the beef brisket pho, the Thai soup Tom Yum Gai (wonderfully seasoned with lemon grass), and the Panang curry. All are first-rate. This unassuming restaurant is a jewel in downtown Renton.
The BEST!!!. Finding this place may be a little bit hard since it's located on a one way street but when you do, you'll have no regrets. The food here is amazing. Their pho is to DIE for and the small bowl seemed like a large to me. The food is nicely prepared and quite flavorful. If there nothing on the menu that you like, they also customize a meal for you to your likely. I just love it here.
