I am astonished by some of the reviews below, which complain about the restaurant’s food, service and ambience.
I have been a frequent diner at Le Jardin since 2002. In all these years, spanning over a hundred visits, I have never had a bad meal or any reason to find fault with the service. The garden where Le Jardin is situated is small and next to traffic, but the greenery and flowers make you feel far away from downtown Saigon. If you don’t like dining al fresco, then you can sit in the air-conditioned room inside.
The food is great! Before opening the menu, I always check out the blackboard for the plat du jour – invariably something interesting and delicious. I know of nowhere in Saigon that serves better fish, and I especially recommend the salmon in dill sauce. Then there is the meat; I love the pepper steak and the chicken in basil. Being Irish, I like my spuds, and it’s hard to choose between the sauté and mashed potatoes. For dessert I usually go for apple crumble and ice cream. The wine menu is slender, but all the wines are tasty and remarkably good value. So is the house wine - red, white or rosé.
The service here has always been impeccable. Sometimes I wonder how on earth such delicious food can be served so quickly. The manager is a very friendly guy, who every so often treats me and my friends to free brandies at the end of a meal.
In short, Le Jardin is my favourite restaurant in Saigon.
