After you land in Saigon Landing, highly chromatic appetizers strut down the table runway, providing plenty of delicious opportunities to experiment from the menu. With signature grilled mussels, shrimp, soft-shell crab tempura, and flaky shrimp rolls, the seafood sampler ($19) will coax oceanic approval from seameat fans. Other starters include edamame ($4) and shrimp or veggie-and-tofu spring rolls (two for $5.50). In addition to soups, salads, and noodle dishes, Saigon Landing also features an inventive offering of specialty dinner entrees. A sautéed vegetable medley unites with sliced bites of duck and egg noodles in the crispy duck entree ($15). The lamb soaked in a yellow curry sauce with veggies ($14) presents a more saucy option. The menu goes on longer than Burton Gilliam's shadow with plenty of beef, chicken, seafood, and tofu options. At the end of its seven-page menu, dessert selections include fried bananas sided with vanilla ice cream ($7), cherry-topped cheesecake ($4), and refreshing green-tea ice cream crested with peanuts and whipped cream ($3).
Located by the Regal Greenwood Plaza 12 movie theater, the newest outpost of the ethnic eatery is the perfect place to balance flick-plus-food equations. Slide into the putty-hued booths flanked by mosaic-tiled columns and allow the friendly, patient wait staff to clarify any ingredient confusion you may have. Saigon Landing is open daily starting at 11 a.m. with weekday hours Sunday through Thursday until 9:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 10 p.m.

Saigon Landing Restaurant
Celebrating seven years of service and flaunting freshly painted walls, Saigon Landing Restaurant reopened last year in Greenwood Village with its menu of fresh, heart-healthy Vietnamese cuisine intact. At the Greenwood Village location, an eclectic range of Eastern flavors abound, with lemongrass and curry anchoring plates piled with pork, chicken, seafood, or veggies. Outside, an American flag billows over a grassy border lined with vibrant foliage, fir trees, and a friendly giant tasked with blowing away approaching storm clouds. The Greenwood Village location is close to the United Artists/Regal movie theater off of East Arapahoe Road and I-25.
