Opened in 2008, Little Saigon is the not the first but the one and only Vietnamese Restaurant in North East England. Located at the centre of Newcastle City Centre, Little Saigon offers a wide range of authentic Vietnamese food at the reasonable price with a warm, cosy atmosphere and excellent customer service. In 2009, Little Saigon has won the Best Oriental Restaurant in North East by Gourmet Society. Continuously, in 2010, the restaurant was the Champion in UK Fusion Food Festival. In 2011, we won no.1 On Trip Advisor for the best restaurant in Newcastle.

New look, excellent food

We popped in here on a Sunday evening having often walked past. It has been completely refurbished, very well and attractively, and our meal was well served and very good. A pleasant surprise.

I was beginning to despair of finding somewhere serving food not aimed at the drunkenly incapacitated before I found this place. I felt very lucky! I had a really lovely meal at Little Saigon, the staff were really friendly - the waitress was very good and made my evening by being so friendly and the manager was professional and welcoming...

We had been waiting for the re-opening and were not disappointed. The menu has been pruned with a new lunch menu. We retried our favourites and they were as good as ever - beef lime salad, caramel pork and beef pho. The service is attentive, friendly and the staff are happy to advise and discuss your requirements.. Its not often... More

Visited with a friend recently, we had the Groupon deal and as I'd not been here before I was unsure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised. We had the same set menu as many of the other reviews below all for £18 and the only thing we paid extra for was a glass of wine each. The... More

I've wanted to go to Little Saigon for a long time and jumped at the chance when a Groupon deal came along. £18 for the sharing platter for two which was supposed to represent a 50% discount. If the portions we received was true to the full value then it's vastly overpriced! I thought even £18 for the amount we... More

Hadnt been to LS in a while so was really looking forward to eating some good Thai food tonight. Unfortunately for the first time we left feeling really dissapointed at the quality of what we were served, the food was oily, the chicken very overcooked and tasteless. My first dish served had a long hair in it that the waiter... More

Our family want to visit Vietnam so when Groupon offered vouchers to eat at a local Vietnamese restaurant I ordered vouchers for four before reading anything about the restaurant. After buying I looked to see where Little Saigon is located and was extremely disappointed that it was located in the heart of Newcastle's Bigg Market. Well known for drunks being... More

Never been here before. Several items on menu were unavailable, so we had to look again. We ordered the set menu and our friends ordered individual dishes. When the food eventually arrived, the waitress was confused with who was to have what. The one dish was totally dried out and the other which was chicken soup with noodles looked like... More

I went here with my mum for a groupon deal (Vietnamese dining experience) which included 7 courses to share for two people. The drinks seemed reasonably priced and were brought to the table fairly quickly. I ordered apple and carrot juice (and I think it may have been only carrot but it was so nice if didn't complain!) while my... More
