“Disappointing ”
Review of Saigon Suzy

Saigon Suzy
Ranked #448 of 1,352 Restaurants in Johannesburg
Description: The most eclectic and unique venue to hit Johannesburg, Rosebank…Is Here!! Saigon Suzy is an Asian BBQ & Rock’n Roll bar with authentic Asian inspired cocktails and street food from all over South East Asia - Thailand, Vietnam, China, Korea and Japan. The owners love of the culture translates in their innovative approach to the food with dishes such Dim Sum, Bao, Pha Banh Mi, Bento, Ramen & Miso. Not just another asian restaurant - Saigon Suzy offers an EXPERIENCE from day into night! Made up of ‘The Market,’ main restaurant and bar, where each soundtrack is hand picked and the food is served tapas style, to The Cherry Blossom Garden for that essential outdoor vibe paired with classic cocktails such as Singapore Sling & Nagasaki Negroni and then the utterly chic & cheeky ‘No Tell Motel’ secret Karaoke pods which are booked on the hour for special occasions, birthdays and just pure after dinner fun! Needless to say - this is what you’ve been waiting for!

I was really forward to our dinner but unfortunately the only good thing was the service. The food was very average and had some ingredients missing and then the prices were ridiculously high for the quantity of food never mind taste. Unfortunately will all the good restaurants in the surrounding area I won’t be going back there.

Thank 9Marcel

What a great welcome to JHB, heading to this spot! Not only is the decor fabulous and fun, the music was rad and the food was AWESOME! If you love Asian tapas, I would recommend picking a couple different bowls and sharing. Cannot wait to hit the kareoke bar there next time.

Very pricey for very small portions, and food didn't pack the flavour power punch one expects from Asian cuisine. The only 'wine by the glass' available was R80 a glass (way too much), and I think Koi do a far better job at this concept of food. Service was fine and the ambiance chaotic but fun. Too trendy without real delivery, in my view. Thank you

We were fortunate enough to visit when they first opened.

Walking in it was really amazing with the lights and umbrellas. Great music playing with very attentive staff. I give them a 5 for decor, music and staff.

Unfortunately that's where it ended as a restaurant is a place you eat and to be honest I didn't really enjoy it. They have some interesting starters such as springrolls and bao buns which were ok. Mains you can make your own where you select the protein, veggies and style you want. I selected the pad Thai which was certainly not pad Thai, the sauce resembles something to a sweet and sour sauce mixed with tomato sauce and vinegar. Could only eat half before I gave up unfortunately.

Great place to have a few drinks with some friends but not amazed by the food
