Satay chicken skewers are pre cooked and heated up. The middle of the skewers was cooked but cold. Food was quite greasy and expensive for what it is.
Boa buns didn't have coriander or chilli and minimal slaw.
Sorry but was not impressed

Great value for money with the a little bit of everything option. There was too much food for our group of five to finish. Service was a little rushed but all round a good food experience.

Went w two friends on a weeknight, had the 'bit of everything' deal. Soooo much food, great value for money. Some of our favourites were the fried chicken and chicken satay, and the fried rice was possibly the best we've ever had. (A big call, I know) Lots of gluten free options - potential cross contamination but you get that almost everywhere. We'll be back!

Had a great meal at Straight Outta Saigon. We had a share meal option which ends up being around $32 per person.

The lamb skewers and the fried rice were amazing 😋

Will be back for sure!

a great range of foods on the menu and they all tasted fabulous. Really fresh ingredients and the best sauces/dressings. Staff were exceptional, attentive but not hovering, they were happy to fine tune dishes to avoid food allergies. Service was super quick even though the restaurant was quite full. I will definitely be going back.

Had a great lunch out with my family, it was their first time here. Food was delicious, value for money that’s for sure we all left full!

Only slight hiccup was wine brought out was not the year advertised, it being a cheaper bottle. But staff were happy to discount and was not a hassle at all for them.

Overall great service and we enjoyed our meal

Delicious Vietnamese food at Straight Outta Saigon. We opted for the sharing menu which offered a great opportunity to try multiple dishes at a very reasonable price. The signature cocktails were excellent, particularly the Straight Outta Saigon (like drinking a lolly). Would recommend the dessert bao bun, which was a twist on a classic dish.
