    Great place, small but good vibe. Food was delicious- will definitely return. Many choices, good portion sizes and well priced. Don’t walk past this little gem

    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.

    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

    Really nice food, it is a restaurant that is great for a quick meal rather than a place to spend the evening

    I have visited Saigon twice and eaten at top restaurants, local cafes and street food. The food I ordered last night resembled nothing like I ate in Saigon. Every dish was overpowered by either too much sugar, salt or chilli. Vietnamese food is clean food and you can taste the quality of the ingredients without trying to hide them with unnecessary flavourings. I wonder if the owners have ever been to Saigon and eaten real Vietnamese food because my meal certainly didn’t reflect that they had any knowledge of how to cook the cuisine.
