This place was recommended by the receptionist at our hotel. We came in, were seated and noticed that everyone brought their own wine. Asked the waitress and she sent us to a store around the corner to get ours. The restaurant doesn't charge any corkage...fee, but they provide an ice bucket, glasses and open the wine for you. Very impressive. The food was excellent and the owner came by to talk to us and recommended other restaurants for us to try while we were in town.More

This is a lovely local place. We thoroughly enjoyed all the dishes we tried particularly the breaded shrimps and the chicken spring rolls. We took our own wine - as most people do - there is a good wine shop on the main street just...around the corner. All the staff are delightful and helpful. Gets busy so go early or book.More

We had dinner here the first night we arrived in Montreal. It was a convenient location to our Airbnb, just a block and a half walk. Definitely a local favorite with many of the patrons being from the neighborhood. It seemed like everybody knew everybody....The decor is nothing to write home about, but the service and food were very good. One drawback is they have no beer wine or liquor, but on the upside you can bring your own bottle of wine to have with your dinner.More

Equipped with a good bottle of ice cold white wine, we discovered this hidden place just off Rue Sainte-Catherine in ‚the village‘ area of Montreal. Nothing fancy but with excellent food, well cooked and reasonably sized. Highly recommendable are the very crispy chicken spring rolls...well as the ‚General Tao‘ main course, available with beef, pork or chicken.More

My first try of Vietnamese food was a good experience. Predominantly french speaking, good service if a little slow to begin with due to being busy. Good choice of fresh food cooked to order and nicely presented. A popular place

Arrived into Montreal late in the evening, booked into our hotel, and walked across the road to the Cafe Saigon for a late supper. What a great little find. A lively atmosphere, staff were super friendly, and the food was absolutely delicious. A great start...to our weekend in Montreal.More

Food was ok - but annoying that no credit cards are accepted. They have a cash machine in the restaurant - which provides happily cash for a fee. No real reason to go back.

Hands down one of the best red curries I have ever had. The portions are on the smaller side -- wouldn't recommend it if you are absolutely starving. The reason for my lower score is that service could do with a bit of work. My...server was trying to usher me out of the restaurant before I had even eaten. She also insisted on speaking to me in French every time she came to check on me even though I apologized and made it clear from the beginning that my French was very basic. As an Aussie in Montreal, this was one of my fears and it came true at this restaurant.More

Found this place on TA. Amazing! Bring your own wine. Service was amazing such lovely and friendly staff. They brought out a few freebies to taste as well! Spring rolls and mains were so good felt like being back in Vietnam. Really good price too.

We went for a diner, it’s really close to my work and never see peoples going inside. So I was a bit suspicious about the place, but when we open the door the place was actually crowded! We didn’t wait long for a table but...it was really noisy. The food is really good and the taste it’s authentic ( I was few months ago in Vietnam so I know what I’m taking about ) and the prices are cheap. I recommend this place for a good lunch or diner with friends! The staff is friendly and try theirs best !More
