Love the quaint setting of this restaurant that immediately sets your expectations up for a great experience. Housed in an rustic building, it certainly did not disappoint. Ordered almost everything on the menu as we were a big group. Egg plant was exceptional as was the sky flowers. Nice service- always a plus in KL. Definitely a must try!

Came here on recommendation of a friend and it did not disappoint a bit! Amazing real Vietnamese cuisine. We had several dishes but for me the Duck in Tamarind really stood out! What an explosion of flavors! Nice place to sit outside, friendly and efficient service. They also carry a nice winelist that is very reasonably priced!!!!

The ambience and service are tip top, the food unfortunately is very average, and tasteless. Maybe we got an off night, my wife raves about this place and it certainly is very popular. Give it a go, it won't break the bank.

Had a foot massage at Tropical Spa and then we went next door to Sao Nam…this amazing Vietnamese restaurant. We had reservations so we were seated outside, right under a cooling fan. We looked at the wine list and saw a bottle of BOGLE Petite Syrah…the same BOGLE we used to find at Safeway back home. We ordered it immediately.... More

My partner loves this place more than me. The visitors that I bring here also love the different flavours. For me, there are some good dishes and some are average. Love the pancake and the spring rolls. My friends love the shrimp on sugarcane stick. Mangosteen salad which is seasonal, is very good. Fresh vegetarian spring rolls were so so.... More

After reading really great reviews, we decided to give Sao Nam a try. Not many Vietnam restaurants around, so we were very excited. We went on a Saturday, with reservation at 830pm, arrived at 815pm and the place was almost full. Got a cute table next to a Vietnamese manifesto poster. The decor is shabby chic, mellow yellow walls and... More

This restaurant serves authentic and tasty Vietnamese food. It is not a Pho shop, however, and only has 3 kinds of soup. Their selection of sides and mains is wide and we enjoyed most of it very much. The fresh spring rolls with shrimp (not fried) were really good as was the Duck Tamarind. The fried veggie rolls, however, were... More

Hidden away from the famous jalan alor food street. Sao Nam has gained reputation for its good taste, by looking at the walk in customers referring trip advisor reviews! The mixed vegetable with steam rice clay pot is ideal for a single person, full taste of sauces and generous servings of mushroom too! Steam eggplants with Vietnamese sauce of strong... More
