About
=Straight Outta Saigon will bring you the best from the south of Vietnam. The newly renovated restaurant has a much similar ambiance to the sister restaurant Hochi Mama. The rustic-street vibe restaurant will focus on bringing the best from Saigon with a modern twist. What diners will expect to experience will be high-quality casual dining experience, a full range of cocktails inspired by tropical areas of Vietnam such as Nha Trang & Da Nang, great non-alcholic fresh off the boat drinks inspired by our parents using ingredients such as Grass Jelly, Chia Seeds and Tea infused kombucha. Our dishes are inspired by street food in Saigon. Our lunch menu and dinner menu are both very unique and a

Eclectic little place, don't get this style too much on the US. Satay chicken and salmon sashimi were outstanding.

I was there on Tuesday night with my family and because we are not fluent with English very much it was a tough job for us to choosing the foods but there was so lucky that we met a staff there and she can speak mandarin well and she was so lovely and patiently recommend and explain the menu for us. We got satay chicken, crispy pork salad and crispy prawns and so other foods but we love this three the most. The girl was so helpful she give us few nice places for our trip and she helped us to note it down so we won’t forget. We love her sweet smile especially my wife keep mentioned about her after the day we have dinner there. Thanks you girl.

This restaurant is one of the best finds in Melbourne. Don’t pay big dollars for so many of the Asian Fusion restaurants. This is absolutely authentic Vietnamese at a fair and reasonable price. The setting is quaint, vibrant and located in the heart of Melbourne....More

The staff were very friendly, and the food was quick to be served. We enjoyed the food, and there was good options for sharing, with both smaller and larger dishes on the menu.
