Am I supposed to ask for a cup of tea or water here? I walked into One Saigon and it smelled like garbage. Jacky and I were just hungry and we wanted something quick so we decided to stop at the nearest affordable place that we could find. I will not come back to One Saigon again but for those who just want a fast lunch this place is for you.
The restaurant was completely empty and I can understand why. The service was horrible and the lady behind the counter who took my counter expected me to tip her. I did not tip her because she ignored us when we walked in and ignored me when I was the only person waiting to order at the counter.
Jacky’s red oil infested “Beef Stew (roughly CAD9)” which looked extremely unappetizing to me. The smell and colour was horrific that neither of us wanted to touch it. I could see the red layer of oil floating above the soup so that was just a straight “No” for me. Jacky did up end up finishing his beef stew but he downed a lot of water afterwards to wash the oily texture in his mouth.
I had the “Lemongrass Chicken with Spring Rolls and Rice (CAD7.9)” which was honestly filling but depressing to eat. The spring rolls weren’t crunchy but the chicken was pretty juicy with a good amount of lemongrass on it.
