    Fantastic food, found it difficult to pick a favourite dish because it was all so flavoursome and fresh. Wait staff are friendly and efficient and add to the experience. Felt full when we left but not heavy. This could become a favourite restaurant

    Our waiter was exceptional. Great food. Cocktails on the pricey side but very good, food was excellent, they went out of their way to ensure we ate in time to get to our show, even though we arrived 15 minutes late. Music was pleasant not too loud we could still hear ourselves talk easily. Will definitely come again.

    Thank you for the 5 star review! It's great to hear that you were looked after with still plenty of time to get to your show. We're glad the dining experience was great and we hope you enjoyed the show just as much! See you next time.

    Cocktails were superb. Servers were very friendly. We felt very rushed. Mains were coming out as we were still eating entrees. Didn’t have time to sit and enjoy the food or a second drink. The highlight was the shaking beef and coconut rice. Beef was tender and tasty, and the rice creamy and delicious. Pork belly was disappointing - very dry and some parts inedible. Fried chicken bao buns were nice, but lacked sauce.
    Straight Outta SaigonResponded on 12 May 2024
    Thank you for the 4 star review! We are very glad that you enjoyed most of the food and we appreciate your feedback with regards to the pork belly and the chicken bao buns. We apologise that you felt rushed, however we hope to see you again to provide you with an improved dining experience.

    The lady serving our table was great, her bubbly attitude made the experience a whole lot better. The food was superb, but the portion sizes were slightly smaller than expected. The beef was amazing, and could probably eat it all day everyday.

    All the food was amazing and the waiter for the night ( I could not remember his name but was tall British and had long hair) was great!
