Description: Saigon in Cape Town has become one of the hot spots. With magnificent views of Table Mountain and their soft, muted lights, Saigon has acquired the perfect ambience. The Vietnamese decor is done elegantly without giving the restaurant a themed feeling. The menu is mainly Vietnamese with Japanese influences. Starters to try includes the Grilled Chicken Skewer and do-it-yourself Lettuce Wraps accompanied with prawns, fresh herbs, noodles and sweet chilli sauce. Some of the more popular Main Courses are the Chicken Cashew Nuts, their Spicy Beef Basil with chilli sauce and the Saigon Ginger Fish covered in a batter. All the Main Courses can be served with rice or noodles. Saigon's exotic Deep-Fried Ice Cream is a must if you have space after your lavish First and Main Courses. The ice cream is deep-fried with a batter casting and then served with their honey syrup. Holding its own between the many restaurants in Kloof Street, this is one of those restaurants were one should book in advance as it is always busy no matter what day of the week it is.

The best Pho we have tasted in Cape Town . The food is authentic Asian and not the bastardized version one gets in Seapoint or the rest of the Western Cape ( barring Katima which is excellent as well ) . The duck salad is first class and we have only had great dining experiences here ...if you feel like Asian this is the place

Good food served well in a cozy restaurant. I appreciated the parking, seen the difficulty in finding it, and the courteous fast service. All we ordered was delicious!

Had a craving for a pho and Saigon delivered with a very delicious meal , the Western portion is certainly sufficient - the Asian one is for the super hungry. my friend had the wok fried tofu which was equally delicious. Its nice to have a Vietnamese restaurant when you crave Asian food but feel like something different from Thai. We were able to walk straight in but I've been before and a reservation is advised.

The mushroom Trio is absolutely excellent. I even went there on my own just for that. I'm not sure whether the service is always so fast or is it because it was winter and that Cape Tow is less busy. Anyway, besides the mushrooms, the sushi are also excellent
