They say: "With magnificent views of Table Mountain and soft, muted lights, Saigon has done Vietnamese decor elegantly without giving the restaurant a themed feeling. The menu is mainly Vietnamese with Japanese influences. Some of the more popular mains are the Chicken Cashew Nuts, or our Spicy Beef Basil with chilli sauce. 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."
Parker Cottage Guesthouse says: This is not a fine dining experience but it certainly is a restaurant: the décor is very avant garde with lots of rusted steel and concrete on the outside but a calming and soft flavour inside with lacquer tables and sold wood floors. The best things about Saigon are things they have always done well, like the Ginger Fish and others. Avoid the sushi here: there are much better choices for that in Cape Town. This is very much a locals’ place, not geared for tourists at all, so prices are sensible and service chummy and informal.
