“Pretty ordinary”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

Nice decor, extremely kind staff and great service -- the food however just wasn't very good. Not Vietnamese food, but nothing really to call fusion either. Rather greasy/bland and really salty. Not a terrible experience, but with so much else to do on Glebe, I would give this one a miss.

“Saigon Saigon in Glebe, Sydney, Australia. Give it a miss !!”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

Take my word for it as a SydneySider ... there are plenty of great Vietnamese restaurants to choose from, This however is not one of them. Chicken Skewers that had obviously been deep fried rather than grilled, chewey salt and pepper squid, pork that was greasy and flavourless, and not a Pho option in sight. not good at all. Think I'll stick to eating Viet in Marrickville !!

“Keep walking .....”
Reviewed 1 September 2011

A disappointing food experience, in a street packed with great restaurants! The atmosphere, staff and decor are a saving grace. The lemon and mint soda is the only recommendation! Dont let the red lanterns draw you in, Keep walking to the Bajas cantina!

“Superb Food...great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 28 April 2009

We visited Saigon Saigon twice whilst staying in the Glebe area of Sydney. Both times we were really impressed with everything. You dont need to order alot of food as the portions are so big, for example 2 main dishes could be shared between 3 people. Also it is BYO(Bring your own) so we did both times. The food is excellent and all the staff really friendly. Reasonably priced for the quality of food and alot cheaper than other local places.
Cannot praise this place highly enough, you won't be dissapointed!
