Well the food was quick
we had the set menu which is very good value at £15 per head as each dish was coming out at £5.

You can eat as many dishes as you like of their extensive set menu.

We had starters - crispy seaweed - salty king prawns etc .
Mains we were stuffed so I ended up ordering only
prawns with hot garlic sauce - special fried rice.

We enjoyed the food - it came out quick.

But
Something we shared in the dishes meant trying to get to bed that night was impossible
As were both tossing and turning all night with restlessness

I was joking about them using msg as everything they put out tasted nice
even the chicken satay sticks which is basically just grilled chicken ..

Needless to say I think my suspicions and then the realisation the day after that we both had a poor nights sleep [ i was up watching tv at 3 am] means not going back here ever.

If you visit Greenwich and is in need of some lunch, I really recommend this place. It also seem popular by the locals which is a plus. Nice, tasty and food came quickly to the table, even though it was during busy lunch hour.

I remember visiting Saigon in Greenwich in 2006. Back then it was for an "all you can eat" buffet. I remember leaving the place contented.

Fast forward to September 2011, the buffet service is non-existence from what I understand (though I cannot confirm this).
They have an excellent a la carte menu. The food is simple, clean and amazingly flavoursome. My wife and I really enjoyed this initial experience.

I then made another visit October 2011. We were pleased with the service as well as the consistency of the food.
This establishment is one of my favourite places to visit in Greenwich and I recommend it highly to the locals as well as the visiting tourists.
