“Terrific Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Laurent, the French manager is a delightful host. If the restaurant is quiet, engage him in conversation. The Pho and spring rolls were both delicious. I can't comment on the French part of the menu, I stuck with the Vietnamese.

“Rooftop comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Visiting this 'little' hidden gem was one of the highlights of our Beijing trip. We (three friends and I) chose the restaurant on the basis of Lonely Planet suggestions and we weren't disappointed. A smooth late-summer night on the rooftop terrace, a bottle of rose, some excellent Viet food and nice company, coupled with good service, made for an excellent experience at Le Little Saigon! I will return!

Damning with faint praise I know, but food fell between being neither French nor vietnamese and steak was poor. Lovely atmosphere however and a lot of attention to detail. Menu could just have been four of five items bigger.

“Great food, decent wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

French-Vietnamese, and with a choice of reasonably priced (French) wines (beware: some places ask totally outrageous prices for non-chinese wine !).
We ordered several dishes in order to mix a bit, but there were some problems with the timing, we had to cancel one dish as it did not come during the meal.
Over-all, one of the places with excellent value for money in Beijing.
When the weather allows, get a table on the terrace upstairs
