    Sorry to say that the waiter was over friendly and exaggeratedly greeted every table exactly the same way (my darlings) which just came across as fake. He was nice but we would prefer sincerity. We ordered the Saigon Social, 2 x small and 2 x large & 1 side. All was good except the large beef dish was inedible as the beef was tough. We told our waiter why we didn't eat it and he was so sorry that we didn't enjoy it. We also told the lady who took our payment when she asked how everything was. She was also sad that we didn't enjoy it and would pass that information on to the kitchen. Based on this experience we wouldn't return.

    Booked Staight Outta Saigon based on reviews, as we are from Adelaide and were visiting on a getaway. We chose to book the "Saigon Social" special, based on value and reviews. We were greeted by a very energetic server, who is clearly built for hospitality with his energy. He was always ready to give his suggested, and applauded us as guests for picking "his favourites." We chose to go with the Soft Shell Crab Banh Mi Bites, and Beef Rice Paper Rolls as starters, both were excellent. The bun for the Banh Mi reminded me more of a Brioche, but as it is a fusion restaurant it was a welcome surprise. For the main, we went with the Hanoi-Style Fish and the Chicken Xao Noodles. The noodles were just okay in my opinion, lacking a bit of flavour but nothing that I would've complained about. The Fish was quite nice; crispy skin, fresh carrot and bean sprouts, with tender and succulent meat. My only critique for the fish was that the sauce/dressing itself was quite sweet for my liking, but that very well could be a personal preference. As a side we ordered the Coconut Rice, nothing to write home about but nothing to shake my head at either. Overall, Straight Outta Saigon is very lively and welcoming to guests, I would just alter my order next time to better suit my tastes.
