Initially we had a table that was away from the entrance and I left briefly to go to the washroom and when I got back, they have moved our table closer to the door and I told the lady that it wasn’t very cool and she reassured me once the table seating turns over the door would be closed mostly. Nope, people were coming in and out every couple of mins as they had tables outside they were servicing
At one point they even dragged the wheels rubbish bin out the door next to us from the kitchen
We were probably 0.5 m from the entrance

Just didn’t feel it was very hygienic
Food was alright. Ambience where we were was poor
Would not go back. Go hochi mama

Enjoyed my night so much at outta Saigon!

My friends and I had the banquet for $45 pp, and there was so much food and a good selection of it too! I was worried the servings would be small but they were very decent and the staff made sure we were all satisfied.

The service was amazing and staff looked after us very well!

Will definitely be returning!!

Yummy food and yummy cocktails!
One of the best espresso martinis I’ve ever had 🤤
Bit of a squishy restaurant and annoying that bathroom isn’t the nicest- upstairs next door. But beautiful decor.
Must go for a cute get together or date
Highly recommend the bit of everything deal for 2-3 people

The food and service were fantastic! Lovely staff and a cute little spot for dinner. The drinks were reasonably priced and really good, as was the food! They catered well for a family of vegans with one being gluten free as well. Highly recommend!

Lovely meal out with great food - we shared the $65 menu and had the salmon sashimi (sooo good), the crab baos (delicious), crispy pork with chinese broccolil (yummo!) and calamari green mango salad (also yum and spicy). Will be back!

Great food and really good value with the shared plates offer (2 entries, 2 mains, 1 side for $65)! Cocktails were also really well done. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable, especially with dietary requirements - plenty of gluten free and vegan options! Only downside is the venue is quite small and so it is pretty crowded and a bit cramped and loud, but we didn’t mind too much as the food was so good!

Booked a table for 7 and all of us were super impressed with the food!

Our table was unfortunately outside but the staff were highly accommodating and moved the outdoor heaters around for us! Although if it was to rain we would not have been covered.

We chose to go with the dishes we wanted to try most rather than a banquet.

Highly recommend the bao buns, the mango salad and pork belly with apple slaw were also favourites!

Loveee the fried chicken, fried rice and the flat rice noodles (we ordered the whole menu almost)

Couldn’t recommend more, if you’re a foodie and you love spice this is a must for you :)
