Saigon
A long-standing favourite in Soho, Saigon has an extremely relaxed ambiance and is a great spot for a relaxing meal, with attentive and calming waitresses who will steer you through the menu. Despite the name this style of cooking is based on rural Vietnamese recipes, and the flavour in most dishes is very mild. This is perhaps the most restrained of all Asian cuisines, and if you like strong curries you’ll be disappointed by the gentle flavours and light spicing here. A two-course meal in incredibly tranquil surroundings featuring exquisite coriander duck left us feeling uplifted and ready for anything. A peaceful and popular option.

Notes:
Booking advisable.
Private dining 40 / 50.
