MICHELIN Guide's Point of View

Although located in an area surrounded by Japanese restaurants and shops, Saigon Recipe shines thru with an authentic taste of Saigon and Vietnam. Saigon Recipe has no pretentious - it’s all about the food - and served in a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere. Despite what...other reviewers have indicated, we found the staff and service welcoming and attentive. And each of the several dishes we ordered were tasty, well presented and felt as tho they were prepared in a home kitchen (that’s a good thing!). Well worth a visit!More

Saigon Recipe is really delicious. I don't really understand all of the negative comments about the staff here. Everyone was very kind. The food was really good and really legit. (I was the only non-Vietnamese in our group.) However, the prices seemed to be a...bit higher than I would have expected. Still I wouldn't let that prevent you from going. The food was fresh and delicious!!More

Nice vietnamese restaurant in Sukhumvit area. Varieties of menu. Vegetarian options available. Parking lot on site but limited. Interesting choice, however personally think that the taste quite sweet in most dishes.

The place is nicely decorated, high ceiling with colorful lamps and typical furnitures. The food was great with a lot of flavors. Portions are larges and ideal to be shared. The staff did not feel really interested by the customers... waitresses were friendly but the...lady taking orders ( the manager or the owner maybe) was not even smiling and was pretty cold.. if we haven’t said goodbye , they would’ve not .. Other than that , I will recommend this place for the food and the great atmosphere. 4/5 for the food , 2/5 for the service.More

The ambiance and decorations make you want to stay more and enjoy the food. The food was fresh and good. The service was fine and polite I noticed bad review about that before. Recommend!

i normally don’t write a review for restaurants in my hometown as i would end up with too much work - but this restaurant is worth raving about! first if all, i love the food here. it tastes so good just like a very loving...home cooking meal your mom would make! the beautiful owner herself is from vietnam. what i love the most about this restaurant is its staff. i’ve been to many restaurants more often than saigon recipe but no one would remember that i’m a pescatarian (not that i expect them to, some of my family members never do 😂) but a staff at saigon recipe remembers! highly recommend this restaurant if you feel like healthy delicious vietnamese food with five star service!More

Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor
and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and

to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While
great for a night out, the area is nothing short of
interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix
