It is a small, cosy environment serving delightful Vietnamese cuisine. I didn't even know this place existed, until a German colleague brought us here. Pleasantly surprised, the duck dish was amazing, so were the other spring rolls.The place is quite hidden, you'd need to look out for the yellow signboard. Price wise, slightly pricey, targeted towards tourists.

This is a great place - glad we found it after walking up the road a couple of times. The entrance is set back a little behind some plants so easy to miss. We had spring rolls and Vietnamese pancake to start - both delicious. Then we tried duck with orange and duck with tamarind and the beef with young coconut. All were very good. Service was extremely quick, probably because it was one of their quieter nights, but very courteous. Prices are a little more than a lot of the local restaurants but worth it to have slightly more sophisticated dishes.

First of all: I eat vietnamese quite often and therefore have high expectations. I am a vegetarian and the food was not my taste: a bit too sweet.
But the place is very nice and pretty and the cusine is professional and good. So it is definetely worth to give it a try.

Tq Tarek for your review. At Sao Nam most of our food are mainly from southern Vietnamese cooking where food is slightly sweeter because of its fruit basin. In the north the food is salty and in the center of vietnam the food is spicy. This is how one would discript the taste of Vietnamese food for the three regions of Vietnam. The sweetness of sourthern Vietnamese food comes mainly from the usage coconut water and suntan ( coconut milk ) used and other fruits and vegetables used. Most of our professional Chefs are from Ho Ch Minh and hence our dishes are mainly from the south of vietnam. We hope that you would come and visit us again and do ask our service staff to prepare food from the north or central vietnam instead. Tq again for descriping our cuisine and our restaurant as professional and pretty.
