Most consistent restaurant, very efficient service. In the 10 years we have been dining at Saigon Rose my taste buds anticipate the delivery of food.

Have been a very regular diner at Saigon Rose over many many years. Venue clean and service efficient, however food taste is loosing the Vietnamese flavour that first attracted us to the restaurant.

When we first started going we as Australians were the odd one out, now due to the popularity of Vietnamese restaurants the client mix has changed.

We still enjoy visiting Saigon Rose but sometimes go away a little saddened as they appear to now focus on the Australian taste pallet more than the real flavour of their food and culture.

Saigon Rose is located in Victoria Street, Richmond in the heart of a thriving vietnamese strip of resraurants. Many of the restaurants in the strip are bland and feature lino or tiled floors, drab decor, plastic sauces bottles and dismissive staff etc Saigon Rose stands out for its higher level of service and more sophisticated decor.

The food was tasty but no better than than the other restaurants in the strip. Infact many of the more humble restaurants serve food that is superior and more inventive than what we ate at Saigon Rose.

We ate on a Friday night and the restaurant was busy and it was hard to converse despite us being seated close to each other. Our meal was let down by the consistent smell of cigarettes wafting in from the dining area on the footpath.

The bowl of cocnut rice was $8 and the serve was really small. The cantonese beef ($15) was tasty, Chicken Chilli Lemongrass ($15 ) was delicious and I recommend it, boneless duck $22 was so fatty it was not very pleasant to eat.. This restaurant was ok and the staff tried hard and were helpful. It is just not a stand out.

We ordered some amazing Saigon rose squid and really nice Catonese beef, both of which were lovely. The Mongolian lamb was uninspiring as were the duck spring rolls and the fried spring rolls.
The service was very quick and there was good meat/ vegetable combination. This is a loud but friendly restaurant, I would bring a family or good friends for a generous feed - it is not elegant or 'classy' so don't come for a romantic evening.
Good value and friendly menu. 2 starters, 4 dishes, 2 big serves of fried rice a bottle of wine and 2 softdrinks came to $150

The meal itself was very enjoyable. However an hour after eating I could not quench my thirst and got a terrible headache, which always happens to me when there is MSG in the food. I did ask if their food contained MSG and was told no...... I ended up consuming 5 x 600mls of water in 3 hours after having dinner here. Certainly wouldn't go back there.
