I avoided Saigon for a number of years due to a bad experience, so was really pleased with our experience on a Friday night for dinner! The food is really good with a great variety. Service is excellent though maybe we were lucky with our waiter! He was knowlegeable and even knew the wines. Not a great wine list but... More

The only Vietnamese restaurant in town. The presentation of the food are quite nice, the design of the restaurant really make you feel you in Vietnam. Good to try something different than your normal Chinese or Thai food

Great authentic tasting Vietnamese food in an upmarket neighbourhood. The restaurant itself is comfortable and casual - unfortunately I am a survivor of the popular Cranks which closed shop about 5 years ago under a cloud of suspicison which I think still hasn't been beaten for ambiance and atmosphere in its hey day.

The presentation of the meat dish was not very exciting and the dish meat itself was dry and bland. Service was terrible, not once did the waiters initiate anything. Specifically, no one brought the menu or followed up on us. We had to go find a waiter to request for a bill.

You are looking for good food, but not fancy dining, then Saigon is the right place. The service was friendly, food was good. The environment can be improved.

Sat on the verandah outside and the service was fast and efficient. Food was great but a bit expensive but manageable.

Feb 6 dinner: From deciding to eat Chinese to ultimately going for Vietamese. Saigon is a nice big place at Rivonia Junction. The place is a bit dark. One can sit inside as well as outside. The inside, I noticed, is not air conditioned. The outside seemed to be more pleasant. For starters, had the pepper prawns - nice. We... More
