Excellent service, quiet staff, unobtrusive staff. Very helpful. Large round table for 10 people was so nice as everyone was able to hear each other. Food excellent. Family have been many times. We will be back.

We ordered food to take away but when we got home found it was surprisingly tasteless and really dry. The food we received was not the food we expected and had very little flavour or sauce, the 'crispy' chicken was plain fried chicken and smelt very off. It was really disappointing and none of us finished our meals which is... More

My partner and I usually go here early in the evening or for a late lunch and always find the staff very helpful and accommodating. We usually get our favorite dishes which are vegetarian/vegan so can't speak about the quality of meat dishes. Having said that the food we get is of a good sized, consistent quality and delicious. Truly... More

This place is usually pretty decent for lunch. However today, when I ordered a meal for lunch, it came out different to the last time. Requested for no spring onions but my whole bowl was filled with spring onions. My sister ordered a hot coffee but it came cold. They did not have the Vietnamese coffee and used normal Nescafe...

We have become regulars of Little Saigon. The food is great and so is the service. With little kiddies it is imperative that the food is served as quickly as possible and this is the case every time we visit Little Saigon.

Went here with a bunch of friends for a dinner. Service was a bit strange, had to call waiter over to take our order and had to ask for more wine glasses and water. Meals were tasty, good for their prices but were staggered and some of our party waited 10 minutes for their meals even though restaurant was near... More

Finished a contract and after a few months away decided to stock up on some food for the evening so we didn't have to cook. Wow. Food was so boring I had to throw it away. 90% rice with a few vegetables and a smattering of sweet Thai chilli sauce. It was the most unforgettable meal I have ever had,... More
