“Good value. Nice ambience.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Great food, although my partner thought that her seafood noodles were abitt greasy. Lots of calamari and not enough prawns. A common theme across the planet.my duck with fried rice was suberb. The entree was good too - we shared prawn boiled spring rolls wrapped in rice sheets. All up 950 baht (less than 36 AUD) including three drinks, good value for money. Friendly and engaging staff.

“Disappointingly Average”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Having read several positive reviews of this restaurant and a lover of Vietnamese food we ere sadly disappointed. Food was served in a random way and the dishes were rather bland and presentation was not very imaginative. The inside part of the restaurant had just been cleaned ( at 7.30pm) and there was a very strong smell of bleach throughout. So had to sit outside

“Again fabulous...”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Whilst staying at the serenity we visited Saigon a few times as it is so close and the food is really amazing.... The hosts are really friendly and make you so welcome, the chefs are out and about and they all seem fantastic as a team....well worth a visit.... I was also very sunburnt on my forehead one evening and the host went into her garden and came back with the real McCoy aloe Vera plant and treated my head.... Thanks for an amazing time ....

“Wow what a find”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We were staying at the Serenity Resort a few minutes walk away from restaurant Saigon.
This restaurant is most definitely worth a visit, the best Vietnamese food on the island.
The hosts were so very friendly and welcoming, on each visit we were greeted like old friends.
Every dish that we tried was cooked to perfection, portions were large and freshly cooked. Try the sprimp tempura also the ginger chicken.
The menu is quite limited but the quality first class, the food was moderately priced and drinks were reasonable too.
Excellent service every time we visited.
Give it a try you will not be disappointed
