Yelper Sarah G., who reviewed A Bit of Saigon on March 11, wrote, "I have tried pho all over Jacksonville, and nothing compares to the pho I've had here at A Bit of Saigon. I will make the drive all the way to the beaches for this pho!"
Yelper Julia N. noted, "We started with the Bahn Xao appetizer, which is a rice flour crepe that you wrap in lettuce and dip. It was our first time trying it after watching a cooking show that featured it. 10/10 recommend. Crispy, flavorful and exciting to the palate."
2. Q-Cup Boba Tea
Next up is Q-Cup Boba Tea, situated at 11380 Beach Blvd., Suite #20. With 4.5 stars out of 169 reviews on Yelp, the Vietnamese spot, which offers sandwiches and bubble tea, has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for an inexpensive option.
Yelper Sharon X. wrote, "The food and service are great! This is one of the best restaurants for egg rolls, Bahn Mi and pho."
Yelper Loan N. shared, " The sandwiches are delicious. I really recommend the grilled pork sandwich. My one bite was full of flavors, from the grilled pork to the jalapeno and cucumbers/carrots, it was great! The sandwich is the perfect size and the right amount of food. After you're done eating it, you will be satisfied!"
3. Viet Subs Cafe
Viet Subs Cafe, located at 1531 Monument Road, Suite #6, is another top choice, with Yelpers giving the inexpensive Vietnamese spot 4.5 stars out of 64 reviews.
Yelper Naw-am D. wrote, "Have you ever craved Asian food and Subway at the same time but you couldn't decide what to eat? Then you realize... Banh Mi! Expect grilled meats in a toasted french baguette with lots of veggies."
Yelper Rich H. noted, "This wonton noodle soup is my new comfort food. The broth is beautiful, bright and clean. Percolating just beneath the surface are a plethora of perfect pork purses. Rounding out the soup are green onions, bean sprouts and slivers of red onions."
4. Little Saigon Cafe
Little Saigon Cafe, a Vietnamese spot that offers soups, bubble tea and more, is another low-priced go-to, with four stars out of 142 Yelp reviews. Head over to 1975 Wells Road to see for yourself.
Yelper Dana M., who reviewed Little Saigon Cafe on April 21, wrote, "Little Saigon has knocked it out of the park on flavors again. I usually order the pho, but I tried the short ribs, and they were amazing."
Yelper Kristal L. shared, "PRICE: great value especially if you get the LARGE bowl when ordering pho. I love that they are generous with their basil and bean sprouts. DIM SUM: Great taste and good quality, big pieces of shrimp, good tasting pork that is fresh. The owners here also own a dim sum restaurant in Jacksonville, so they know what they're doing."
