    They couldn’t have squeezed anyone else in. Wait staff couldn’t even get around to serve food and drink. All meals were staggered so couldn’t all eat together.

    Found this restaurant by chance on the web. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the 5 dishes ordered, Will definitely return again and recommend it to others.

    We were a table of five and we were all very impressed with both the service and the food. The food was the freshest I’ve had the pleasure to enjoy - all crispy and deliciously tasty sauces. Highly recommend the soft crab and the tofu. Definitely try this place!

    My 11yo daughter and I came here for dinner in between shows of The Cursed Child. All the girls on staff were extremely welcoming, the food was absolutely delicious and the overall service was exceptional. I highly recommend dining at Straight Outta Saigon.

    Loved this place! Food was great and super cheap. Wine was a little more pricey, but still reasonable. Great service. Would definitely go back.

    We opted for the $59 for 2 deal, which included 2 small, 2 large, and 1 side meal - which was ample to satisfy. The vegan pho, prawn wraps, prawn stir fry were absolutely delicious. Service staff were very hospitable and accommodating. Perhaps the only downfall was the noisy atmosphere which left us struggling to hear each other, repeating our words, and trying to lip-read. Not an ideal setting for a deep conversation.

    Try to avoid lunch peak hour as it will be squeezy. Pho was light and nice.

    I had the pho and it's not too bad, the space is a little cramped though especially with the lunch crowd. Their pickled onions used to be free, but you have to order it as servings for a few dollars.

    Food was solid. We ordered the 2 small bowl portion of Pho and 2 appetisers. Appetisers were great. Pho lacked a little bit of substance- there weren't very many noodles at all and a whole lot of soup. Really cute place and great for after work dinner with a friend.

    Great friendly staff happy to help Main courses were flavourful and generous Entrees just needed more flavour but on requesting Vietnamese herbs the waitstaff were very obliging providing coriander so the fresh spring rolls tasted 100 0/0 better but still less noodles more crisp veg Love Vietnamese food for its fresh herbs and it is what makes this cuisine so special

    Only thing I would suggest is that with the 5 meals for $59 that the servings could come for the amount of people. I.e 4 people 4 servings. Other than that it was great

    Would have preferred a few suggestions with what we ordered, we ordered rice but would prefer to be suggested for something else. Was nice but better options nearby
