“Tasty and big portions..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Parking in Greenwich can be expensive and difficult to find a space to park your car. I suggest you get there by boat or other form of transportations.

When we visit Greenwich, we always eat at Saigon because it serves tasty big portions of food. The food is of good qaulity and value for money. We pay under £35 including drinks and tips for the 3 of us. I would normally chose the belly pork cooked in clay pot with rice for £6.80 and my family will have fish with rice for the same price. All the rice dishes comes with some cooked vegetables but it is only a garnish so we always order another plate of chinese vegetables. There are colour photos of dishes to make ordering easier. It serves mainly Chinese and Vietnamese food. A good place to have a quick lunch in a tourist area.

After the meal, we cross over the road to the market and we have a good look around at the stores. If you are still hungry, you might be tempted to buy some of the cakes and food on offer at the market stores! But I think it will be very unlikley because we never have room to eat after a meal at Saigon!!

“Worst terrible service in the world”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The worst service I ever had. We were 2 adults and 2 kids entered the hotel. After selecting a table waited for 20 min for a waiter. Did not gave us water we asked. We ordered more so requested them to pack one dish. The waiter simply gave us two boxes and asked us to pack the food. I feel like I am in a jail. Food is OK, But the service is the the worst in the world. Never go if you want to feel welcoming.

“Good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Very cheap, especially for London. Service was pretty bad - waited ages for a tap water, and food slammed down on the table. Everything tasted ok though, even a dish I ordered called something like Vietnamese style spicy prawns.... which was basically just prawns in a sweet and sour sauce. Plentiful portions of everything, they don't do side dishes of rice on the ala carte menu so 1 rice is huge.

“Tasty food - we were not able to sleep afterwards due to MSG”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Well the food was quick
we had the set menu which is very good value at £15 per head as each dish was coming out at £5.

You can eat as many dishes as you like of their extensive set menu.

We had starters - crispy seaweed - salty king prawns etc .
Mains we were stuffed so I ended up ordering only
prawns with hot garlic sauce - special fried rice.

We enjoyed the food - it came out quick.

But
Something we shared in the dishes meant trying to get to bed that night was impossible
As were both tossing and turning all night with restlessness

I was joking about them using msg as everything they put out tasted nice
even the chicken satay sticks which is basically just grilled chicken ..

Needless to say I think my suspicions and then the realisation the day after that we both had a poor nights sleep [ i was up watching tv at 3 am] means not going back here ever.
