The neighborhood of Little Saigon is consisted of the area east of Chinatown, west of Rainier and south of First Hill to S. Weller St. The heart of Little Saigon, 12th and Jackson was a prominent jazz spot in Seattle during the 40’s and 50’s. The neighborhood gained its Vietnamese identity in the early 1980’s. The fall of Saigon in 1975 caused many Vietnamese people to flee the country. These refugees made this neighborhood their new home, opening small businesses and family restaurants. The Vietnamese culture has remained a strong identity in the community. Little Saigon is the ideal place to experience authentic Southeast Asian food and culture.
