We went there for dinner. Make sure you have reservations cause the place gets full very quickly. Very tasty Vietnamese and great service. The pho was delicious as well as the Banh Xeo pancakes.

Decided to give it a try since there were so many good comments on TA.
1.Taste & food wise = good but nothing exceptional if one has tasted regularly Vietnamese cuisine.
2. Price = above average compare to other restaurants as it is located right in the tourist district
3. Service = very poor. Both of our main dishes which were noodles & they were not served simultaneously & I had to wait a long time for my wife's noodles to arrive. We had spring row for appetizer, 2 noodles each , cup of tea & a small mango sago desert & the whole dinner took us 1.5 hours !!! imagine ... the waiting time

Definitely my favourite and first choice of a restaurant to have dinner at when visiting KL. Yes, KL is full of great restaurants and it really caters for any taste and flavour but Sao Nam's starters beat them all. The mixed starter platter followed by mangosteen salad (only available in season) is like going to heaven with your taste buds. Followed by crispy coconut milk pancake and noodle salad. What more can you wish for? The food quality has been steady and always same high level since the first day of opening. You may dine inside or outside in a pleasant courtyard. Staff is nice and courteous.

We were so happy to come across Sao Nam having just returned from a holiday in Vietnam. We have tried other Vietnamese restaurants around the KLCC area but all have failed serving nothing that comes close to authentic Vietnamese food but then we came across Sao Nam. We had Pomelo Salad and a Chinese Noodle Salad lunch set which came with Vietnamese Spring rolls. All dishes were so fresh with a lovely balance of flavours. Very generous servings as well. Sao Nam has a lovely atmosphere with Vietnamese posters & art. They have a lovely outside area in the front courtyard but we chose to sit inside with the air-conditioning as we were hot from a long walk. This restaurant was such a great find. We cant wait to make it one of our regular dining venues. Thanks to the Chef & staff - your reputation is well earned.
