The Vietnamese restaurant chain has been cooking their books for some time now. Owners, Simon and Michelle Nget have been accused of failing to pay legal wages to dozens of employees then fabricating their records to conceal it.
The restaurant went to such lengths to support their fraud they would even pay workers normal paychecks, make them cash them, only to give the money back.
The couple was arraigned on charges of falsifying business records, tampering with physical evidence and offering a false instrument, each charge carrying a four year max prison term.
That's dirty business in full swing if I may say so myself. They're obviously not the first ones in this city to do this. No one could even begin to understand the underground world of dirty business dealings that this city enlists in it's thousands of hospitality businesses.
Truth be told, Saigon Grill really does put out some of the best Vietnamese cuisine this city has to offer at very reasonable prices. We've eaten at all of their locations numerous times and would still go back regardless of criminal activity.
Signature dishes include Bo Luc Lac (stir fried teriyaki, beef cubes), Xuong Nuong (grilled marinated pork chops with lemon grass) and Cha Gio Chay (crispy fried vegetarian spring rolls filled with vegetable and peanuts).
