Visited this gem with a group of eight, we had a banquet style meal and everything was tasty, fresh and wonderfully presented. I noticed most negative reviews mention the service, it was fine the night we visited however it was a week night.

Waitress seemed like she did not want to be there every time we ordered something she made faces and looked like she was mad. My wife asked for an extra side of lime and she said no more. I said I would pay for it and then she brought one small lime. Bad service and ok food.

Just co-incident we pass by and give it a try. Service wise so so as the staffs not seems welcoming. Until we asked should we make reservation? Then they mentioned no need. They have good value of promotion now, noodle or rice with either salad or fried spring roll aside. And best was its included drink. This set is 300... More

had a birthday dinner with friends there. Love the small little chic restaurant. Foods are quite original so we are not used to some options but worth to try.

It is an OK restaurant. As some comments mentioned, the service was average, but I have to say the waitress was doing her job even though might not be felt welcoming. It was about training not about personality. The drinking was the highlight, and the pineapple juice was very fresh. The Beef Pho tasted ok even though the quality of... More

With a group of friends, we went for dinner last weekend at Saigon Recipe. Love the deco of the restaurant which reflects the culture of Vietnam and it looks pretty elegant. The restaurant is in a quiet area of Bangkok and you could really have a good conversation with your friends while enjoy some yummy treats. Food wise, awesome! We... More

I visited Saigon Recipe today and found the service miserable. The staff were more interested in ensuring that we hurry with our order before we even sat at our table at 8:45. This was followed by regular clearance of dishes whilst we were eating. Finally the bill was given to us before we completed our meal. For the amount of... More

You cannot go wrong with the Pho at Saigon Recipe. The set lunch menu deals are excellent and I would go back for those alone. Be sure to get the fresh spring rolls if you don't get a set lunch...you will not be disappointed. The only minor disappointment was that the staff seemed a bit indifferent about having guests. Not... More

This place was full of westerners. The food reminds me of eating in Little Saigon (Orange County). It's not Brodard but it will do. I think it has to do with the fact that the owner's wife is Vietnamese. Bun was delicious! Lemongrass tea was yummy because it's sugar free. Parking was a problem but it's worth the trouble.

My party of 4 enjoyed a very nice lunch in this cafe style restaurant. The decor is quaint and a nice touch. The service is good, but with limited kitchen space the food will be prepared and served as allowed so don't expect every one at your table to be served at once. With this one inconvenience out of the... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
