“Excellent food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This place is right on the river and the water laps up on the deck. People even arrive by boat! It's very picturesque. The food is mostly European and extremely good. It's expensive by Saigon standards, but if you're here on holiday, you'll hardly notice. Staff are well trained and overall, a fabulous experience.

“Overpriced and ordinary”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

If you want to mix with Yuppies and eat ordinary food at a high price this is the place for you. We arrived late and decided to dine on 4 different entrees. Each one was very ordinary and something that is available for less than half the price elsewhere, duck dim sum (dry and tasteless), Pepper and chilli calamari (deep fried and the pepper and chilli must have been in one of the sauces provided), tempura vegetables (nice if you like to drink fat) and scallops (quite nice but tiny and expensive). We won't be back, there are plenty of other places in Saigon much better.

Dear Jacko317552,

Thank you for your candid review. We are so sorry to hear about your unsatisfactory experience with us recently. We are taking immediate steps to investigage why the food may have came out that way as this is certainly not common place. I will be sure to share this with our chefs and we do hope to invite you back personally. Please email me at geoffrey@thedecksaigon.com shall you wish to give us another try. Our prices do reflect the quality of imported food and we aim to give our guests the best deals possible. I am delighted to invite you to dinner to hopefully show you this may have been an isolated case.

Best Regards,
Geoffrey Deschamps, Manager, The Deck Saigon.

“A Night to Remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is by far the best dinning experiance in Siagon.
I pre booked the dinner months before we arrived, as it was to be a special night.
The manager helped me out to great lengths to ensure all went to plan...and it did!
Take the offer of the speed boat to pick you up, as it is a great trip during the night, to arrive in style.
James Bond style...
Food is superb and the service is top class.
Everything is priced well and all the staff are great.

Make the effort and enjoy your time at the Deck Saigon

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Great location, good service, high prices and food above average.

Would like them to change the menu card a little though. I have been visiting The Deck maybe 15 times the last 3 years and not much new there.

Dear Chris V,

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on Trip advisor. We highly appreciate your continued patronage. We're pleased to hear you are happy with our service and location. Some of our items are imported which do sadly have to reflect the prices at times but we assure you we aim to give our guests the best possible experience and value for their money. Quality is what we are about and at times that has to come at a small cost. I will share your comments about the menu with our chef's as well. We look forward to 2013 being a great year and we have lots of new changes to our menu I think you will find very satisfying. Do let me know personally when you are back as I would be pleased to invite you to one of our signature cocktails or martinis. The Whole team at The Deck looks forward to welcoming you soon.

Warm Regards
Geoffrey Deschamps, Manager, The Deck Saigon.
