Not Much Vietnamese

They had no fresh spring rolls, only deep fried which instantly made us suspect this place wasn't going to be very Vietnamese. So we had some steamed dim sims which were very average and $13 for 4 small ones! A total rip. Luckily, they redeemed themselves with the 'Vietnamese' Pho (what other... read more

Saigon Saigon is a favourite restaurant with glorious views across the Fitzroy River. Food is excellent and the staff could not be more attentive, but in a way that is never intrusive on the dining experience.

Saigon Saigon is great for a romantic dinner for two, a girls catch up, or large gatherings. If you choose to sit outside, you get to see a lovely view of the river. I found the food to always be lovely, however over priced to how much you actually receive. There is always enough parking as their is street parking... More

Fantastic food by the river.. you must try the Mongolian Lamb its absolutely DELICIOUS ! All dishes that we have had here have been fantastic. Only downside is, if its not breezy then its quite a hot spot to sit.

They make really nice food and at a good price too. Especially when you compare it to some other places along the river! We had the black bean beef and satay... More

This Restaurant has got position but that is all. I cannot believe that the food is so bad as they have an amazing position and should employ the best chefs to carry off this place. I have been a few times but have been disappointed each time.

We have been traveling for 10 months now and have been to Vietnam, we have missed the great flavours of south east asia but saigon saigon has defiantly satisfied our tastebuds and took us back to the great Vietnamese cuisine. We ordered a few dishes to share between us, chicken satay,dried chilli chicken, Singapore noodles Jasmine rice, and the very... More

We went there for dinner and had sweet and sour pork. The food were edible but overpriced. Serviced was bad. We were placed closed to the toilet in an empty restuarant. They dont even serve noodle soup (pho) for dinner, any other viet eatery would have. Go somewhere else if you want authentic vietnamese\chinese food.
