“Not very good Vietnamese food”
Review of Saigon Bistro - CLOSED

Saigon Bistro
Cuisines: Vietnamese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 September 2013

I previously lived in San Jose California. It has a Vietnamese population of over 100,000 and very many restaurants. Saigon Bistro would be completely lost in the competition and below average. It is medicure in both taste and quality.

The (pho) soups and main courses are bland, disappointing and not very authentic. Prices aren't very good considering it is basically the same ingredients as local Thai food, but with different seasoning and presentation. Saigon Bistro food is not real Vietnamese taste but just a Thai (Land of Copy) knock-off of the real thing.

If you must have Vietnamese food and don't have high expectations then this is the place to go because Pattaya doesn't have any really good Vietnamese restaurant.

I got something with chicken, dont remember exactly what...but I was in for a treat...The aroma was out-of-the-world...I think i inhaled my food :) Staff were very polite and attentive and answered patiently to all our questions. Good amount of vegetarian fare too. Each dish ranged between 90 to 130 THB, and for the big king-size portions, it is a win-win. Do not miss !

I've eaten here several times and it's one of my favorite restaurants in Pattaya. The beef Pho is very good and the baguettes are great (and come with a broth on the side).
The restaurant is quiet and very comfortable and the service fast.
