SquareMeal Review of Saigon Saigon

Priding itself on offering an authentic flavour of Vietnam, this Hammersmith favourite has wooed locals with its elegant, ornate dining room & moderate pricing. Forget the tatty cafés of Shoreditch’s ‘pho mile’, Saigon Saigon has a sophisticated, amiable vibe, created by dark wood, bamboo & traditional carvings. The kitchen replicates well the culinary fusion of modern Vietnamese cuisine. Chinese influences are apparent in the likes of stir-fried beef with fine beans & onion, while dishes such as battered frogs’ legs marinated in lime juice are a nod to the role of French colonialists. The extensive menu also encompasses clay-pot stews, various versions of noodle soup, & steamboat (where diners cook ingredients in a bubbling cauldron of stock at the table). An adequate wine list & attentive service provide the back-up.

I have been visiting this restaurant for the last 3 years when my family moved to Chiswick and for such a long time my family did not find fault at this place . Great food quality, both taste and presentation, good service but not very consistent as I often see different staff all the time. We know it has been under same management , a successful family business. Not cheap though but we are happy. Our favourite is the grilled quail, spicy soft shell crab and crispy crepe. The pineapple soup 'canh chua' is excellent, stewed pork with eggs is perfect . Pho soup is best snack meal here, It is so powerful and tasty. Highly recommended, especially for weekend.

I have frequented this great local restaurant many times as the food was really delicious – but on last three visits, it has not been up to its previous high standards I am sad to say. I thought maybe it was just an off night the first time, but alas not. Not sure if there is new management or a new chef, but the food – which always appears incredibly quickly – was tepid and just not as good as it used to be – especially the balance of the flavour of the Tamarind Chicken was not right.
