    We came here for dinner for my daughter’s graduation. We had to sit outside as there was no seating available indoors but the seating outside was fine as they had umbrellas and heaters. When we were seated and eating we didn’t even notice that we were outside. We had the ‘Get dishy with it’ deal which was great value. All the dishes were delicious and we were stuffed at the end of it. My husband is vegan and he loved all his dishes as well. There was a good selection for him. Can’t wait to go back!

    Fantastic food - really tasty vegetarian options. The chef hasn’t just substituted meat for a slab of tofu - they’ve thought about how to provide a meat substitute that is seasoned and tasty!

    This is the third time I have eaten at Straight Outta Saigon. Each time it just seems to get better and better. The food is delicious and fresh. The vibes are awesome. Cocktails are delicious and not overpowering. Best of all, the staff are lovely. Me and my friend were served by the gorgeous Chelsey. She was absolutely delightful, she had great banter and good recommendations. She genuinely seemed like she enjoys her job, and added to the experience. Would highly recommend.

    Had a 6pm dinner booking. We were aware there is a limited time applied to each table. However been regularly reminded of this by wait staff and given countdown reminders (eg. 15 mins until we need your table) detracted from the experience and was distracting. Other restaurants do this better. Good value food, but the frustration of regular interruptions to remind us we’d need to move on means I wouldn’t come back. Only toilets available are next door, upstairs, in Taco Bill. They were grotty and squashy.

    We had a number of small bites to start, which were not small at all, we sent most of the soft shell crab ban mi back as they just weren’t nice. The main dishes redeemed themselves but the service was pretty bad. When you got a waiter they were vaguely helpful, we stood up to collect our drinks from the bar ourselves more often than not, at the end of the lunch the guy who served us our bill was quite rude about it as we were splitting it, ended the service on a real low.

    The service was perfect, Emily provided a great service from the minute we walked in, she took time to explain every thing that we wanted, she even went to the trouble of taking out an iPad to check if any of the meals had allergies. The best service we have received at any restaurant. We will definitely be coming again. The food and drinks were perfect, can’t fault a thing.

    Such a wonderful place to go. I have had this place on my to go list for a while and so glad I had a chance to try it out. The service was absolutely amazing, the lovely girls that served us were so kind and welcoming it made our night. The food was unbelievable, the $39pp deal was so worth it that we couldn’t even finish all our food there was so much to go around but definitely I will be coming back.

    This place always impresses me, but last night a member of our party required assistance with the menu due to (what I believe) to be some sort of fructose intolerance (which includes onions, garlic, broccoli, and much more - please pardon my ignorance). The staff were amazing in accommodating her and her requirements. Multiple suggestions for altered menu items and extremely willing to help; above and beyond. So much so, that the member of our group with the food issue said it was one of the best restaurant experiences she has had in a very long time and that finding somewhere so helpful is often hard to do. So a BIG plus for the SOS staff, chefs and food. Thank you.
