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

Bought a voucher, booked in..excited! it was moderatly busy, getting busier. The waiter sits us down. He does struggle with english so we were passed onto the english waiter, an elder man. Not a problem- I'd do the same to gain a speedier service with less confusion. We're instantly given some crackers to chew over whilst waiting for our set... More

I hadn't been to this restaurant in over 2 years when I decided to back last week. The food was just as good as I remembered - not quite sure why I left it so long to return. We ordered a set starter option which included Vietnamese spring rolls, beef wrapped in some kind of leaf (can't remember the exact... More

Purchased a cheap Groupon voucher for this meal. It was very good. Vietnamese crackers, mixed starters which consisted of deep Fried Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Pork Salad and wrapped spicy sausages, all were fresh and tasty with 2 dipping sauces. Main courses were excellent Caramel Pork, deep Fried Squid and a really tasty chicken dish and 2 portions of sticky rice.... More

Hi, shared a groupon deal with my partner last night. First time to little Saigon, and were very impressed by the food, very fresh and tasty. Milder than Thai food, but really tasty. Service was good from staff, only disappointing thing was that we were crammed into the front corner of the restaurant. Overall very tasty and would go again.

Having been to LS a few years back and had a much better experience, 7 dishes for about £18 seemed like a bargain when we spotted it on Groupon. The good point's: The starter was tasty - A meaty salad, spicy and crunchy accompanied by delicious aromatic meat wrapped in seaweed(?) and authentic spring rolls, nice and crispy The not... More
