Reader: Food is great at New Saigon, but the service doesn't come close to courteous

This week Mark Antonation's travels along Federal Boulevard finally reached New Saigon, one of the city's oldest Vietnamese restaurants, and definitely its most popular...despite some concerns regarding surly waiters. Although Antonation and his family encountered nothing but friendly faces when they stopped in, Laura Shunk had a different experience when she reviewed New Saigon eighteen months ago.

Says Denver Dave:

Well, I am a long time fan of New Saigon. I think the food is great but I have to say I have yet to have service that even resembled courteous. Usually I am happy to have someone acknowledge my existence and deliver a check. Not rude exactly, just no interest in serving you if you aren't Asian.

Have you eaten at New Saigon lately? How did you like the food? The service?
