The fresh rolls and french bread with bbq were delicious. The owner was very accommodating he even served the iced coffee we ordered. The food should not be missed because it is AUTHENTIC Thai cuisine.

Visited the place as recommended by friends. The restaurant is just 5 minutes away from the airport. We ordered the sizzling spicy fish, beef stew (chaolong), french bread, pork spring rolls and garlic rice. All the dishes were very cheap with their most expensive ones (shrimp/squid dishes) that cost for only Php 150 each. Their menu have a wide variety... More

It was a rainy afternoon in Puerto Princesa and we were looking for somewhere to eat before we head to the airport for our flight back to Manila... Our tricycle driver suggested Rene's Saigon and since we're fans of Vietnamese cuisine, we readily agreed! The place is like a big nipa hut and we ordered their beef stew with rice... More

My second time here, couldn’t remember what I ordered before but this time, I had their famous Beef Stew with rice noodle for Php80 (that’s pretty cheap for pho) and Fresh Shrimp Spring Roll with Pork for Php120.

Wait, how come there's authentic Vietnamese cuisine in Palawan? Well, not many will remember that Palawan was one of the few places that opened its doors to Vietnamese refugees fleeing from the effects of the Vietnam War. In return for the hospitality shown them by the Palawenyos, the Vietnamese gave the gift of the secrets to their cuisine. Rene's Saigon... More

The prices were reasonable so I ordered the spicy squid with rice. The squid was just okay, a bit too oily for me really, perhaps next time i should try their french bread which is what they're known for.

Just loved the food at Rene Saigon!! Everything we ordered was just delicious. The beef stew was delicious, the fresh pancit with beef was divine. And the vietnamese iced coffee was just perfect with the food. Will definitely come back here if given the chance to go back to Palawan.
