After reading the great reviews I was looking forward to this dinner. I returned from 2 weeks in Vietnam and I was very disappointed... the food was flavorless, uninspiring and over priced. I ordered steamed rice, calamari and spring rolls... $35.00... wouldn't bother going back!

Such a fantastic restaurant. They do BYO and are based on a very popular street, Chapel Street. Extremely friendly and helpful, storing our wine in the fridge, pouring the wine and giving us water. Also helped store the birthday cake too. The food was delicious, and served hot. I loved their deep fried ice cream, woow! I look forward to... More

Service was good and everyone was polite. I ordered a vegetarian crispy noodle dish which was average. No huge flavour punch, and there needed to be more sauce to soak the crispy noodles in. I also ordered some Chinese broccoli with garlic sauce, not the best I've had. Needed more garlic and flavour. Both of these meals cost $29. I... More

Almost walked straight passed the restaurant. Glad I didn't miss it! The menu is diverse and very well priced. I wasn't super hungry so ordered 2 entrees instead of a main. I wasn't disappointed. The salt and pepper soft shell crab was delicious, I highly recommend this dish. The won ton soup was lovely. Delicate and well balanced flavours, packed... More

We are frequently at Saigon Rose as the quality of food is very impressive. It is an inexpensive meal but the quality is of the highest. The service is also very good and the owner takes pride in always ensuring all his guests are well looked after.

This is the second time I have been her with friends. The first was for lunch for 2 back in October 2016. The food was so enjoyable I came back for dinner for 4 in December 2016 which was amazing. Food and service was excellent. The limited wine list was sufficient to find a white wine to complement the food.

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.
