“Vietnamese food? Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

I passed this by whilst out for a stroll and dragged back our folks for Vietnamese to try it out.
Firstly the prices are criminal, how can you get this much quality food for so little? Secondly the food is amazing, very fresh, very healthy, everyone really enjoyed it and it was fun to try something completely new. Lots of meat and vegetable / salad dishes with rice or noodles many soup or salad bowl based and very generous portions, good selection of beers too.
Service was a bit odd to start until we realised that you have to do a bit of self help by ordering at the till and paying first but once the concept was grasped all was good and our host was very hospitable and friendly. A good evening out.

“Fresh and Creative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Our well-traveled group of four totally enjoyed Saiwalks. We could not get over how fresh all the food was, from the spring rolls to the outstanding Pho, the food was well presented and plentiful. We don't know what they do to the chicken in the Merchant Mai rice plate, but we would love the secret - fantastic. A delightful surprise was the Sizzling Crepe. Order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Gracious service.
