Simple and unpretentious place serving reasonably good Vietnamese style food. Popular with the hipster crowd.

The pho at Saigon Rose is so good! The bowls are large and prices very reasonable. Definitely recommend Saigon Rose if you're in the area

Read a few good reviews and checked it out. Early Sunday evening is quite quiet even on Chapel Street. The service was really good and the food came out quickly. I had one of the fish dishes and it lacked real flavour. Too much sauce and overall a bit of a disappointment. I might have caught it on a bad... More

Wouldnt rate as my best Vietnamese, however, the food was good - adjusted to Western Palate. The service was ok. Nothing exceptional. The environment is pretty unexceptional. The pancake was good, and so were the sticky lamb ribs, so felt got a good meal at a reasonable price. Would go back if just wanted something easy and local.

We stumbled upon this place by accident. Four of us had been across the road having a drink and wandered past. It was absolutely packed and so we thought it was worth a try. We were very lucky to get a table but were limited in our time as the table we were seated at had to be made available... More

Dinner with a friend, shared a banquet meal and a red wine. Service was prompt and friendly, the food was tasty, maybe it needed a little more zing in the flavours for my likely?

Wow, those spring rolls (pork and chicken) were incredibly tasty! I think that it could be a little brighter but over all a great restaurant.

Fantastic meal last night: prawn and asparagus spring rolls were magnificent as were the prawn rice paper rolls. Followed by honey and pepper beef and a chicken coleslaw made for a delicious meal delivered on time.

We have been on a mission to find the best Vietnamese in Melbourne for the last 6 years on our frequent trips. We came across Saigon Rose by accident and we have been back four times now and it has never disappointed. Service is good and food is delicious. Can't wait to come back!

I picked this place as we wanted a not so pricey yet good restaurant to catch up with mates and I think this is a great place.We BYO'd two bottles of pinot noir with Dan Murphy's a block away - this is the best way to go if you are worried about buying wine in the restaurant. Great service and... More
