I called into Eat Saigon one evening when I couldn't be bothered to cook and was feeling very hungry. I ordered summer rolls and beef and noodle, and a Vietnamese beer. I was astonished to be asked my age re the drink, as I'm pushing 50, not sure if I was being satirised, flattered or they were taking compliance way too seriously. Food was brought out quickly, and the only complaint I have is there was far too much of it for one! Service was brilliantly attentive, kind and friendly and there was a diverse range of other diners obviously enjoying themselves thoroughly. I'd like to go back just to try the Vietnamese baguettes which I have never had before and appear to be baked on the premises.

I went to Eat Saigon for lunch with my vegetarian husband & 16 month old son. This is what was good about it:
1. High chair
2. Friendly, speedy service
3. The waitress didn't make a big deal out of it when my son smashed a pepper pot on the floor
4. Great veggie options (tofu crispy pancake & tofu vermicelli were superb)
5. Chillies optional so the baby could eat everything & we could just put chilli on our dishes
6. Cheap lunch specials (beef pho, delicious & £5, Vietnamese pork baguette, delicious & £3.50 including a free coke)
7. Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk. If you've never had this before you need to try it.
8. Large, well laid out, spotlessly clean baby change room.

It's a totally different menu & experience to Saigon in Wellingborough (Eat Saigon is more like a cafe, Saigon is more like a restaurant) but both are great & are two of my favourite restaurants in Northants.

Visited early evening, had read a review but we were not sure, decided to try it and it was the right decision, from the outside it doesn't look the place for a evening meal, and I would suggest they remove the glitzy open sign, but the food was fresh prepared and truly excellent, the Waitress was a true character a great experience would definitely go back.

Thanks Capster70 for your review, since then we have had many diners asking for the neck massage but you were the lucky one to have caught him at the restaurant on the off chance. :)
