Went to Sao Nam for first night with family in KL because of great reviews I had read about it and we were not disappointed. Had told everyone we were in Asia so it would be Asian food for dinner and no burgers or fish and chips. As this was my first taste of Vietnamese food I have to say it didn't blow me away however from an overall dining experience I have to rate Sao Nam really high because it was excellent and I think it deserves the high rating others have given it. Don't get me wrong it was very, very nice but we all found the dishes quite sweet overall. I had the mangosteen Mangosteen was very good as different for me. My wife and daughter shared the chicken and prawn pancake and it was delightful - I helped them eat it so it can't have been bad and my son had the chicken curry which was a yellow curry - and that also was really nice. Although the food didn't quite do it for me for an introduction to Vietnamese cooking i think it was an excellent first taster with good portions and presentation. Where it really did it for me was in the areas of location, ambience, cleanliness, service and staff behaviour and in these areas I cannot fault Sao Nam. Like any restaurant the true test is would I go again and the answer to that is Yes. Great restaurant so do go and try it.

I have been to this place several times and never got disappointed. No matter what I had, the food was excellent and always consistent. Definitely recommend the visit if you are around. The only but is that sometimes the staff doesn't pay attention to the customers

Had an excellent meal. Recommended by friends who stumbled onto this lovely restaurant. Staff friendly and helpful. Chef Phuong is an amazing chef. Dishes are different from other Vietnamese restaurants we have tried. Well worth a visit.

Nice peaceful place, with cooling ceiling fans making inside tables very pleasant. Our mixed starters were delightful, full of taste and freshness. but our mains (laksa / lamb in coconut) were bland. Service was good and prices not too bad. Maybe we chose badly but was expecting better.
