Vietnamese
Vietnam, a land of vibrant cultures, vivid contrasts, and an intricate history gives way to some of the most delicious and intriguing food in the world. A colonial background of China and then France, food of Vietnam was the first true fusion cuisine, blending the techniques and ingredients of France and Chinese culinary traditions allowing Vietnam to create a cuisine with a spirit and a flavour all in its own.


Our chefs refer to their cooking as “the nouvelle cuisine of Asia.” Our dishes rely on an abundance of fresh herbs and vegetables, the use of contrasting flavours, varied textures, exotic ingredients and by using methods such as grilling, braising and steaming, Vietnamese food is among the healthiest in the world.


Saigon Saigon aim to provide you with all the pleasures of the Vietnamese table, a captivating taste of an irresistible cuisine and look forward to welcoming you.

The lovely neighborhood restaurant has unfortunately been a victim of the pandemic. We loved this place and last night was a very different experience. We arrived at 8 for our booking (just 2 of us). We had asked for a table outside and although it had just started raining the showed us to a table without an umbrella when other covered tables were available. Until 8:45 no one has come to take our order and it was only at about 9:15 we got some drinks and crackers after we had to ask couple of times. The food finally arrived and it was very very average. Duck satay very dry and cold and definitely our meal was not what it was like all the times we have been there pre-pandemic. All the time we were there there were dirty tables which were not cleaned after the previous diners left. We did ask what was the problem and one member of staff said it has been a weird day but no apologies, no discounts no drink on the house... nothing.

Beautiful restaurant and extremely friendly staff
Menu has slightly changed and in my view is more Asiatic food than Vietnamese now.
Prices good.
Worth going there !

We had lunch after shopping with 4 people. I asked one extra chair for our bags but the waiter refused. There were so many empty seats and using one more chair was nothing!!

Booked a table for 8pm. Turned up on time to be told our table was being cleared and we were asked to wait outside for a few minutes. We said that was fine, even though it was freezing outside. We stood outside for 25 minutes, along with other diners awaiting their tables, and when we went back in to ask how much longer it would be, the lady at the front desk asked us if we had a reservation. Once we pointed out that we’d already checked in with her and were waiting outside, she told us our table was just being cleared. We pointed out that she’s informed us of that almost 30 minutes ago at this point, about which she apologised but explained that she hadn’t wanted to be impolite to the previous diners at our table by asking them to leave at the end of their time slot! We pointed out it was just as impolite to lie to customers and leave them outside in the cold like they were doing. A few minutes later we were eventually seated. The food and service was good after that, but the lady who’d spoken to us at the front asked us later if it had ‘all been ok in the end’ which we didn’t appreciate much. Be warned if you book a later time slot because they aren’t good at keeping to time for previous diners!

The staff were lovely and friendly from the minute we walked in. The restaurant was taking lots of covid precautions and the heaters outside meant we didn’t get too cold for our 8pm meal. The starters weren’t to our fancy but the mains were delicious. Overall a lovely experience!

@Saigon Saigon...
Fresh food and excellent service as always.
We were under a cover and outdoor heaters were on full blast on a chilly night.
A complementary delicious BD cake took my husband by surprise.
Thank you for making his day.
We'll be back.

Wonderful food and great serice as alwasy.

They are always wonderful here - and were even very nice to the rather rude gentleman in the next (socially distanced) table - who was complaining that there were too many vegetables in his vegetable curry....

We were met by a very friendly lady who undertook the usual temperature test etc. The waiter explained that the menu had to be selected by ticking boxes on the menu itself . When we had completed our choices, the waiter took it away and promptly brought our drinks. We waited for at least 45 mins before someone brought us some prawn crackers and apologised for the wait. A bit later our food arrived. It was delicious and almost worth the lengthy wait. I’m sure the kitchen staff had problems that night so I shall Be returning for another sumptuous feast soon.

The table was very sticky so not nice as one didn’t want to touch it. The starters were good but the chicken in my main course was uneatable so couldn’t eat the stir fry noodles. I felt the staff was more busy taking care of take away than looking after us

My mouth is watering writing this review and reflecting on what was a fantastic dining experience at Saigon Saigon. If you are looking for delicious authentic Vietnamese cuisine then please look no further! Not to mention the staff were polite and very professional and kept the premises clean 24/7. My friends and I will definitely be returning! :)

We were excited about eating here but were extremely disappointed when we found out they have taken all fish out of their menu so had to settled for other stuff. Although it was all tasty the menu on open table is not updated and misleading.

The restaurant takes your temp before you come in and have a sanitisation station. Feels like they are putting appropriate protection (where possible) in place.
Service was good, food served quickly and was tasty. Good experience overall.

Missed the Steam Boat which is our favourite. Can see no reason why not available as the Steam Boat restaurants in China Town are open.

Do not now who resurfaced you tables but they put varnish over stain before it dried properly so the tops of the tables are all sticky & soft with things sticking to them !

They need doing again, properly ....

( Use a water based stain, LET IT DRY, & then coat with polyurethane or marine varnish which goes off rock hard. )

The food and service was amazing. The safety measures were good especially taking our temperature. The only disappointment was we booked a table for 6 but we could not sit together. This was helped by the free glasses of Proseco. Would highly recommend this place

Really awful now. Used to love this place. Didn't feel covid safe either.
Starters came but waited ages and ages for main meal to arrive. The hostess at reception was abrupt as she couldn't find our booking from Opentable. Then told us we had to sit oustide as we had not booked. Slow service too and waiters leaning over us and our food. Not good :(
