Went here for a family meal recently the food was very good with a comprehensive wine list and the waiters friendly and polite. Several people were also eating in the restaurant and a few called in for takeaway. Very good if a little expensive. Decor more modern than before, now red and black rather than white tablecloths.

Having recently eaten here I must say thay the food was amazing. However we didn't receive the friendly chat and atmosphere that other's seemed to get from the staff... food made up for this though

I went to the Saigon with my husband and two boys aged 14 & 11. The 11 year old can be a fussy eater and doesn't have a great appetite but he thoroughly enjoyed his food and said the lemon chicken was the best he's ever tasted.

The restaurant is spotlessly clean and nicely presented.

The owner is a delightful man, very welcoming and friendly. He took his time to check we were having a nice meal and that everything was to our satisfaction.

We visited on an all-you-can-eat evening where you can pay £16.50 per person and they serve a huge variety of starters, crispy lamb, and then your choice of main meals. Even though we had come on all you can eat night the food was piping hot and freshly cooked. We have been to other restaurants in WSM and the food has been reheated. Not here, the food was delicious.

It also wasn't a problem that our youngest only wanted the Lemon Chicken, I was able to just order and pay for this rather than the all inclusive price. Very helpful on the part of the restaurant.

We will definitely be visiting The Saigon again. It really is the most wonderful place.

Initial frosty welcome, due to turning up with a 6 year old and a cranky 2 year old for the Saturday night dinner service. Once seated and the kids behaving that changed and the staff were friendly.

Food is a mix of Chinese and Vietnamese and tbh a bit confused unless you ask. It's not your average Chinese gloop which is great - the menu outside does not show the full range and you can also go off piste very easily. The Special Fried Rice was nice, light and not greasy which says a lot about the skills of the chef and I would happily go back when next in the area.

All in all a pleasant surprise. I am a lover of proper oriental food and this was OK. Shame they had no flour for the Vietnamese pancakes, but at least they said so and didn't try and fob you off with some random rubbish.

I would give this place a go

One thing if you are there with young kids - They have no high chairs. If you read this review The Saigon - PLEASE BUY SOME!!!

I visited the Saigon a few weeks ago with a friend early in the week. The restaurant was fairly unassuming and empty to begin with, but Feb in Weston can be v quiet; a few more people came in while we were there. The menu had a few interesting choices which offered some variety from your average selection, and the food was very well cooked and tasty. Worth a visit.
