​Saigon Surface is an esteemed Downtown Omaha Vietnamese restaurant and lounge. The atmosphere is hip with every table equipped with iPads for your pleasure. It’s a great location for a meeting or work celebration. The menu is quite plentiful, but here in the office we are all fans of PHO and recommend starting with the fresh spring rolls. Choose between Oxtail, Chicken, Beef, Pork, Duck, Prawns and Tofu for our vegetarian friends. Saigon has certainly turned into a QAT go-to spot.
