No Vietnamese eating here; they know better! The waitress who works there is their greatest asset. Polite, popular, fun and efficient, she is everything the other staff are not. They have a menu but most items were off as the restaurant preferred you to eat their pre-prepared fare which bore little resemblance to anything I ate in Vietnam. There was... More

This is the 3rd visit to this restaurant and I must say it's something else the food is really tasty, you pay a set fee and eat as much as you want they are not stingy with the food either and are happy to advise meals to suit your taste preferences, I will definitely be back many more times!!

I've lived in Aberdeen for 25 years and this was my first ever visit to Sai Gon today. I had an enjoyable meal: for £23 you can pick all you can eat from 100 or so dishes: appetisers to mains and sides. The food was tasty and the service was good, and for the price, it was excellent value.

The decor is very dated and dirty in places, the waitress was absolutely lovely and couldn't be faulted but the waiters were very abrupt and quite rude, to be honest.

Visited on Sunday night and came away disappointed!Compared to the old Saigon this place has went downhill ? The waiter who attended to us obviously didn't want us there even if there was only 4 occupied tables in the whole resteraunt, the place now looks tired and needing atmosphere? Some farmer/ redneck in the next table liked the sound of... More

My husband and I visited on a Thursday evening and there was only another 20 odd people there. Our waitress was so lovely and helpful as it was our first visit she explained the menu to us and we decided on the all you can eat. We shared the smoked corn chicken and chicken satay along with crispy duck pancake... More

Mediocre food, retro decor and shirty waiter. I don't feel I ate £23 worth of food to be then charged £4.50 for a desert. Turns into an expensive meal. Long and short better to either go to cosmo or get a take away. Disappointing.

Used to visit Sai Gon on a weekly basis a few years ago and always recomended to anyone i spoke too. The food is not as good as it once was and the price has increased. Friday and Saturday nights used to struggle for a table but was only 2-3 other tables in. All the staff has changed and it... More

Visited here after reading the many mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. Having travelled all over Vietnam was really looking forward to something different. What we got was a Chinese meal in disguise. Just because the name of the dish is in Vietnamese doesn't make it a Vietnamese dish. Quality of food was ok but nothing to draw us back. The... More

To be honest, I only come here for the starters and duck. They do a set price for as much dishes off the menu you want. By the time I've had a platter of starters and aromatic crispy duck, I'm too stuffed to have any mains. Which is fine with me as the mains aren't that great. But I still... More
