“Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

We visited Saigon after tiring of our resort's dinner menu...what a hidden gem! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was just fantastic. The small size of the restaurant makes for a great atmosphere and prices were very reasonable. Consider eating here if you are staying at Serenity, only a short walk!

“Excellent Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

The drawback is that the restaurant is on a busy main road so unless you are specifically looking for it , is easy to miss. Once inside there are distinct dining areas, smoking and non smoking. The restaurant is well designed and has a beautiful ambience. The Swiss German host is very attentative and his Vietnamese wife backs up a superb meal. It was unfortunate we were the only diners which rather spoils the atmosphere. Speaking to locals that have tried the restaurant once, the response is always the same, too expensive for wine and food..So its a catch 22..if the prices were more locally competitive they would attact more customers considering it is not easy to stop at due to its location.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

If you're tired of Tom yam and spicy Thai food - welcome to Saigon! We've discovered the place and were amazed by beef soup with fresh mint, spices and rice noodles. We've tried as well the chicken and the fish - all is well cooked,fresh, tasty! The owners are welcoming and are attentive and friendly.

“Authentic taste of Vietnam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

Really don't know why it's taken me so long to go to this restaurant - I mean, I only live 200 yards away! Very friendly place, with stunning food. No, it's not the cheapest place, but then if you exclude the drinks, I don't think it's excessive either. Will quickly become a favourite!!

“Fabulous Hosts & Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

We sought out Saigon Restaurant after reading positive reviews on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. Lovers of Vietnamese food, we allowed the fabulous host Ms. Leatitia to chose our menu and it was all delicious. Her staff were also very friendly and we ended up staying well into the night having shots of snaps and cigars! Ms Leatitia, who decided it was too late for us to walk back to the resort, called her husband Peter (also very friendly) to bring the car down so she could take us home. We then returned to the Saigon on our final night and had a very similar experience. This time Peter was at the restaurant all night and joined us. Again the food and company was fantastic and they drove us back to the resort. Yes, it is a little more expensive than other restaurants in the area but to us it was an experience, not just food, and we were happy to pay.
