We had oyster blade steak, creamy pumpkin soup and potato wedges when we visited The First Steakhouse this morning. The steak was very tender and tasty. I love how the pepper sauce was prepared. I couldn't get enough of it. It was that great. The flavor of the pumpkin they used in the soup was so intense as if it was roasted. I loved the texture and creaminess of the soup served with croutons. The potato wedges were crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. Seasoning was perfect. The place was clean and cozy. The staff were welcoming and polite. Overall, it was an awesome and memorable experience. Will definitely eat there again and bring my family and friends.

Dear Jhaela,
How wonderful it is to get an amazing testament from customers about our food and service. At The First, we use only the best and freshest ingredients. The pepper sauce you had was made with Phu Quoc pepper, the best pepper in Vietnam, hand-delivered at our restaurant. We make the sauce and everything else in house. The pumpkin soup is prepared every day fresh – we carefully stuff the pumpkins with herbs to enhance the flavors and oven-roast them for a few hours until tender throughout. We are extremely happy that customers realize the amount of care and attention we put into every dish, even the smallest ones. We hope to see you and your family and friends very soon!

I ordered a meal from this restaurant a few weeks ago. It was unimpressive, to say the least. I left a low review on Vietnammm.com and expected nothing. Last week I received a phone call from a friendly Filipino guy who is the new manager. He expressed concern over my experience and offered to comp me a meal to make up for it. Tonight I ordered that meal and it was nearly perfect. The steak was the proper size with almost no fat on it, the taste was excellent, good quality vegetables. The mashed potatoes were also excellent. All I can say is the service industry in Vietnam could use a few thousand more guys like Jeff to add Filipino hospitality into the regular offerings!

After over 2 weeks travelling across Vietnam we had our fill of Vietnamese food and decided on The First Steakhouse as our destination. To say it was a good choice really doesn’t do it justice! I

Incredible quality of food at really impressive prices. The pasta was as good as anything we have had in Italy (which we have been to dozens of times) and the ribs just fell off the bone.

Jasper looked after us with style and couldn’t do more to make sure we had a 5* experience.

Give this place a go if you are in Saigon it won’t let you down.

We were on 2 week trip to Vietnam and to be honest l wanted a change from noodles!
We were not disappointed
- sharing platter consisted of
Pumpkin soup
Garlic bread
Tenderloin & Beefsteak with veg (green crunchy veg HEAVEN!)
2 x glasses of local wine

We just caught happy hour and the G&T was such a welcome change from beer!

Deserts panocotta & creme brûlée and a Vietnamese coffee to finish!

This wasn’t cheap by local standards but by western prices it was very good value for the quality of food 3 courses and alcohol

My only point to raise - the local red gets served cold, it tastes so much better at room temperature, so let it heat up!!!

Dear heatherrC5499NB,

Thank you so much for coming to The First. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed our offerings, and that we brought you a nice change from the local everyday Vietnamese (which we hope you also enjoyed). At The First Steakhouse, we always try to bring customers the best food and drinks quality at the most affordable price point (all of our meats are imported and delivered fresh to the restaurant daily). We're happy that customers could see and appreciate that. We have noted your remarks regarding the house wine, and will make sure our waiters double-check with customers whether they prefer theirs chilled or at room temperature. Thank you and we hope to see you again in the future!
