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.

Good was excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient. Restaurant is popular but you never feel rushed even with the table time limit. Dining room nicely spaced with out door dining in front during the warmer months

I’ve been to Saigon Saigon on a number of occasions and wanted to take some friends that hadn’t been there before, I was very disappointed with the experience.
Service was very slow and non attentive, we had to ask for water several times and even a jug to be left but they didn’t listen and took considerable amount of time to bring water.
The food didn’t taste fresh, I ordered a prawn on baguette that was so tough to eat that had a skin on it that you could tear off as it was so dry and probably premade.
My friends chicken skewers were also tough.
The mains were also a disappointment, I ordered a braised chicken and the quality of meat was not great had a lot of skin on the meat that was just put me off eating it and my friends meal was no better. We ended up leaving most of the food.
I previously have enjoyed the food immensely at this restaurant but was very disappointed by both service and quality of food. Only saving grace was the company I was with and we didn’t want to spoil our night by making a seen. Paid over £100 for a very mediocre meal and service.
Will think twice about going again.

Delicious beef pho with plenty of subtle flavour and aromas. Spring rolls were good too (great rice latticed pastry) as was the beef in betal leaf. Some of the portion sizes were a bit small for the amount charged, but not outrageously so. I would recommend Saigon Saigon for authentic Vietnamese flavours (having travelled the length of Vietnam myself) and plenty of choice on the menu

It wasn't my first time to the restaurant and I have to say every time I find myself there I enjoy the food and the nice environment very much.The menu has a long list of choices to satisfy all taste and have never been disappointed :) The staff is friendly and welcoming. It was another excellent night and I am looking forward to visiting again soon!

I’m a big fan of Vietnamese food and have eaten lots of it, I’d say the food is great here. Authentic and good quality ingredients used. I have been for dinner and most recently for lunch, the lunch set menu is good value however I ordered from the normal menu as I’m a bit fussy. Decor is a little dated and it can be a loud environment when it gets busy as tables are pretty close to each other. All in all if you’re a Vietnamese food fan I’d recommend this place but not the best place for an intimate meal due to proximity to other diners. I’ve had both fantastic and passable service spread over various visits but no cause for complaint on any occasion.

Me and my partner were very excited for a Vietnamese cuisine for a day. The starters we had were very good, great suggestions from the server. Service was flawless as well and will definitely go back to eat with the whole family.

Regular patron to this local gem.
Can always expect a good night out as the management and staff make you feel special. always welcoming
and professional in approach.
Delicious authentic Vietnam dishes , a favourite of mine is the quail starter with spicy aubergine together as a main dish.
Vegan and veggie friendly and those dishes are prepared appropriately. Personal requests present no problem.

Good selection on menu. Starters were good. The mains were a let down. The Cari-ga was too watery and the pork ribs were salty and dry. The mochi dessert was completely frozen and took a lot of effort to break apart. The bill was cash only because the card machine was down and the change never came back to me. If we weren’t too tired, we would have taken an issue with it. Overall a dissatisfying experience.

Love this place. Starters fantastic especially the pork steamed spring rolls. Had a curry for mains which was lovely but the seafood and vegetable main didn't have enough seafood and was a little bland. Maybe we didn't pick will this time, but we shall return

We were given warnings by email the time limits of how long one could be there before we went there. It appeared less welcoming but we weren't rushed in any way. It was appreciated.

We are regulars at Saigon Saigon but on the last couple of visits the service has been very poor. The food is excellent but we had to ask repeatedly for our drinks, the food arrived before the drinks, our previous visit we waited over 30 mins for the desert menu then we were told we had to leave because our time slot was up. Not sure what's happened as the service used to be great. Now the service charge is added automatically, which is another thing I can't stand! It's such a shame as their fresh summer rolls are the best I've tasted outside of Vietnam.

This is a difficult one as the food was good but I have to point out the following as it really spoilt our enjoyment.
Our starters did not come out together.
My main I had duck (nice but only warm) with stir fry vegetables (also nice) but the 2 dishes did not come at the same time so I was picking at the duck till veg came out and then the duck was cold.
One of the windows was open so the restaurant was cold until a waitress stood on someone’s chair (with shoes on!) and closed it.
Overall there was no atmosphere and the restaurant dining experience was not worth it, so unfortunately I would not return.

First time here and would recommend this lovely restaurant. The food is wonderful. We found the starters unique and delicious flavours to share among friends. The Vietnamese beer is really great and goes so well with the meal. The portions don't look massive but we were all full at the end. The service is attentive and not intrusive. The restaurant is popular and bustling and we liked the atmosphere. It is a bit more pricey than other nearby restaurants but worth the extra for the feeling of quality and luxury.
