Visited here with friends and children, the food was absolutely dreadfull. The chicken and ribs were tasteless. No wonder the place was empty. Left me feeling ill, I will never be going back.

Didn't expect to be joined by mice tonight! The food was lovely! However whilst eating our food we spotted one mouse running around the shop floor. Not only did it put us off our meals, i felt as if the staff didn't even believe us and just continued to work. After calming down, we got another plate of food only... More

Place was pretty empty, since new management it has definitely improved! Me and my partner visit here often and can not fault the food!

Please visit saigon as it is not how... More

Since the new management i think saigon has improved significantly. The staff are the sweetest!

They have traditional Chinese cuisine as well as other... More

A big, bold imposing building slightly off the beaten path in Blackburn hides an 'all you can eat' oriental buffet. The signs and pictures around Saigon Buffet advertise an exciting taste of the east - Korea and Vietnam. Unfortunately, you will not find these at lunch time. Seemed to be strictly Chinese fare. Inside it was particularly quiet for lunch... More
