The best food! Chef is great. Myself and my father have been coming for many years! When we lived up the road we went 4 or 5 times a week. Everything better than the last.

Scrumptious meal: crispy noodles with seafood (yum!) And beef curry (delish). Creamy spicy curry. Fresh & tasty. Great service.

Have been here on several occasions over the year. Every time the food has been quick and delicious. Their pho is one of the best I have tried while living in Wellington. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for some authentic Vietnamese food.

We ordered the Vietnamese signature dishes: the summer roll and the Phu (rice noddle beef soup). They were authentic except that there were some corner-cutting, which in our consideration not entirely excusable. For example, one critical ingredient of the soup is the green lime, which was substituted with lemon...this should not be. The summer rolls lacked herbs, which made them... More

Took a family member out to lunch at short notice, and Saigon Taste is just off the end of Courtney Place, downtown Wellington. It was quiet on this wet cold mid week, I settled for the Pho (soup) which is a house speciality, and was full of lean beef, my daughter chosing a fluffy pancake which she assued me was... More

Saigon Taste is a fantastic small Vietnamese restaurant. We visited with a family group of 6 for an early meal prior to visiting Carters Observatory for night sky viewing. We started with summer rolls - prawn/pork and vegetarian tofu, the only thing that went quicker was the vegetarian spring rolls with taro and kumara. We sampled most of the shakes... More

Had a wonderful meal here last night (Sunday). We hadn't booked, and the place was packed - so we were lucky to find that the last free table fitted the 5 of us. What delicious food! I ordered a #37 - Saigon style vermicelli with lettuce, mint, spring rolls and pork with a wonderful dressing. It was outstanding! The starters... More

It's sad to see such a negative review as recently when one can understand the ease with which a misunderstanding can occur. We had a lovely meal here on a Friday evening. It was nearly full when we arrived but they found us a table, supplied us with water and menus within minutes and arrived back in good time to... More
