Other NEIGHBORHOODS, San Francisco: 21 reviews and 47 photos
Little Saigon is a tiny two-block by two-block neighborhood in the heart of San Francisco's often-rough Tenderloin district. Larkin Street between Eddy and O'Farrell streets was officially designated Little Saigon in 2004, and it is home to some 2,000 of the city's 13,000 Vietnamese people. 80 percent of the businesses in Little Saigon, including restaurants, tailors, barbers, laundries, markets, and more are owned by local Vietnamese people. The neighborhood is marked with yellow banners welcoming visitors to the community.
We spent just a few hours in Little Saigon, shopping at a few of the markets and having lunch at one of the restaurants, called the Turtle Tower Restaurant.
Nearby San Jose has a much larger Vietnamese population estimated at around 90,000 people, making it the largest Vietnamese population outside of Vietnam, but San Jose does not have a designated Vietnamese neighborhood like Little Saigon.
