About Saigon Alley

     Saigon Alley started as a food truck  by Rachel Conn in the summer of 2017.  Rachel decided to create a menu based on Southeast Asian cuisine because she loves the flavors and combinations of  fresh ingredients and aromatics.  It is our belief that even though we are in Montana, we have access to many of the fresh, local ingredients  that make these recipes beautiful.  We have tried to stay true to traditional recipes, while still using local ingredients and having a little of our own fun along the way.  

      In Late 2020 we moved to our current location at 139 Reeder's Alley.  For the rest of the year we will be taking time off from the food truck to focus on the new restaurant space.  However, we hope to still take the truck our for events starting in the spring of 2021 .

"I am still thinking about the vegetarian red curry and veggie roll.  I encountered the truck after a tour of the state capital this summer.  I can't wait to have more of this great food.

Yelp Review by Brigitte W. in Great Falls

I live over an hour away, and I am happy to make the drive-pretty regularly- to Saigon Alley!  The food is unique and has incredible flavorful.  Having eaten damn near everything on the menu, my favorites are the beef satay, pho, and banh mi.  So happy to have a really delicious and reasonably priced place to eat & bring out of town guests!
