Saigon Y2K Vietnamese Restaurant
It is easy to forget you are in the middle of Calgary's bustling Chinatown while dining in this Vietnamese eatery. The subdued colours and lighting make for a quiet and enjoyable meal. Y2K offers up traditional Vietnamese dishes such as deep fried quails and spring rolls, egg noodle soups, rice bowls, stir fried noodles and vermicelli selections. Their is a wide selection of vegetarian, prawn, beef and chicken dishes. The beef noodle soup is especially fantastic. Drop by for authentic Vietnamese cuisine at reasonable Chinatown prices.
With Vietnamese restaurants seemingly springing up in every strip mall in town, there's a lot of choice. But you know that when a place fills up to Standing Room Only, with a long lineup of people waiting for lunch on any given weekday, it's gotta be either really cheap, or really good. Saigon Y2K on Crowchild Trail is actually both - the food is great, and about mid-range in price. I still think spring rolls are an acid test for a good Vietnamese place - and these are consistently piping hot, crispy, and most importantly, full of flavor - not like the insipid, soggy beansrpout-laden undercooked junk that shows up too often as your appetizer, especially during a rush. This was the place that turned the rest of my family from meat-and-potatoes people into pho-eaters. We keep going back - and have always had both great service and great food.
The overall impression was v. poor. I went there a few years ago and remembered it being quite good, now days, not good. The food was tasteless, the salad was soggy, the soup smelled of a wet dog and required a lot of sause just to make something out of it. We left the restaurant hungry since we ate little of the food we ordered. What a disappointment.
Used to really love Saigon Y2K and go 4-5 times a month minimum. Since new ownership a few months ago have only gone twice and have been disappointed both times. I'm not sure if they changed cooks or skimping on something but the food just hasn't been the same. In addition, they took my favorite dish, #54 off the menu!
With the food quality down and the perennial crappy service Saigon Y2k no longer worth a visit.
food is good
Vietnamese coffee was a hit!
close to work, central location
crowded at lunch, noisy
door doesnt quite close, cold air draft
wait staff poor communication, cant speak english
Very poor service and meal was cold.
Extremely busy environment as it is all open with many tables crammed into area.
Unhealthy environment, washrooms dingy and unclean.
Would not go again.
The customer service I received here was terrible. We ordered two of the same dishes and a pot of tea. The waitress repeated back the order so I was pretty sure she got it right... however I was very wrong.
One of our dishes came out by itself, but since we got two things of sauce and the dishes were exactly the same I assumed the second dish and the tea would arrive very shortly.
After waiting for around 20 minutes while my gf felt bad about eating while I didn't have my food yet and the waitress making no effort to check on us or explain why the second dish and a pot of tea were taking so long I was finally able to flag her down. She didn't really seem to care that we had been waiting forever and when she finally did bring us tea she didn't even bother to bring cups so we had to ask someone else for them :S
Needless to say I am not impressed and likely will not come back here especially since the manager made no effort to rectify the situation when I spoke to him about it before I paid. In a business dependent on repeat customers I was surprised that nobody there seemed to care about customer service.
My family loves this place. The service is quick, the food is very well priced and you get lots of it. It is cheaper to feed my family (4 with 2 teenage boys)here than it is to go to a fast food resturant, even with their 'value deals'. The pork rolls and salad rolls are a family favorite as well as #45 & #46. We have dinner here at least once a week. I recommened this place to everyone!
My family has been going to the NW location for several years. Everyone loves it. The amount of food you get is amazing (two meals worth for sure), and it's always delicious. The atmosphere is kinda grungy and cheap, but every time I'm there the place is full, the food is excellent and is served very quickly.
I'm a fan of #72 (I think that's the number), the heaping platter of rice with chicken and shrimp and pork and whatever else is in there. Also good is the curry chicken or beef with a ton of onions, served with a big bucket of rice. Oh yeah, baby, that's dinner and tomorrow's lunch right there.
Don't let the cheap looking atmosphere stop you from enjoying the excellent food at the Burger Inn. Located on fashionable
