What a lovely local restaurant this is. Vietnamese with a few other Asian dishes. Best way to describe it is this: - Extensive menu - Inexpensive - Best service. They really look after you here - Alcohol is cheap. There is no point bringing your own when a bottle of sav blanc is only $20! Honestly this is a great... More

Service was excellent, family run so all hands on deck. Cosy old school decor, and food was excellent and good value. We tried the Chinese variations, but the look of the passing Vietnamese variations, I will be going back to try!

The food here is absolutely amazing, and Le (the owner) is awesome and has magnificent service as a waitress. It is a small place but it just makes it feel more cozy and comfortable, much like home! And to "DaveMcK1", it sounds as if you have just been extremely unlucky and have run into their time of traffic and stress.... More

No booking on a Saturday night at 7pm but had to wait 10 minutes to get a waitress to even speak to us before we were seated. Once seated I ordered two entrees then the waitress left immediately thinking that was an order for both of us so we had to ask her to return to get my wife's order,... More

I love Duck and you can get a meal of half a steamed duck with veges and rice for less than $20 and you can take some home in a doggy bag, there are plenty of choice and the place is always busy so the food is fresh and wholesome. Perhaps the only draw back is that it's so busy,... More

Recently ate at this little Vietnamese Restaurant in Altona. What a surprise. Everything we ordered was delicious. We have been to Vietnam 3 times and love the food especially the authentic dishes. Saigon Sun took us back to Vietnam. It is getting harder to find restaurants that have not gone overboard in catering the Asian food for Westerner's tastes. The... More

Saigon Sun is tucked away in in a side street of the sleepy seaside suburb of Altona. The food is delicious. Always. The families who run it are delightful and always friendly and make every customer feel welcome. Eat in or take away. Salt and pepper quail and plum sauce duck are not to be missed.
