Went here for a dinner with a group of friends. Sat upstairs on the outside terrace where the view of Gulou was lovely. The service was slow from the start, they didn't know what was on their menu and were generally very incompetent bringing the wrong dishes at times. This was a shame considering the food was very nice, although... More

True. When the owners or his parents (French father, Vietnamese mother, both former restaurant owners in France) are not there, the service is not the best, due to language problem. But I often had similar issues in other restaurants in Beijing and all over China. Restaurant workers are temporary workers, and there is no time to train them properly. But... More

We liked the atmosphere and had a good fun, but that was despite the poor service we got. Food was not bad, but not in line with price. We ordered French wine and they took the order, but only after half hour wait and our inquiry, we m as managed to understand they didn't have it. We ordered 6 meals... More

Went here desperate for Vietnamese food and on the recommendation of our Lonely Planet book. We ordered a starter and two mains. Everything was quite expensive, and unfortunately also a tiny portion. The spring rolls were bland, the pho was *awful* and the curry was just fine. All in all, not a good value considering it was 250RMB in total.... More

I liked the look of this place and had been really looking forward to eating here! The walls are a rich green and full of photos and pictures creating a really nice vibe. And it had a nice bistro feel. We ordered pho, papaya salad and some beef satay. All portions were quite small. The pho didn't really have a... More

Three words- Awful, awful, awful. One advice- Don't go. The fish we ordered was probably dead a century ago. I might as well be eating my rotten pair of socks. Spring rolls were more like some kind of oil infused pickle. Mango shake comes with runny watery yellow liquid. We should have understood by looking at the number of people... More

Expectations were high as we walked in. Unfortunately there was no table inside so we were shown to the rooftop. As it was very smelly near the edge of the terrace we moved to a table in the center. No attempt was made to make the rooftop hospitable, just tables and chairs. The staff who attended us only spoke Mandarin... More

There are many excellent restuarants in Beijing and I first disćovered this one three years ago. I often promise myself that I will be back when I've enjoyed a good meal and don't get round to it but I have returned to Little Saigon on many occasions. The reasons speak for themselves: the overall atmosphere, the decoration, the background music,... More

Quality and Service Good, Portions small as previously mentioned and a bit pricey for Beijing. Expect higher prices in tourist areas, although if you can break out a little farther in the hutongs, you'll find quality experiences for bargain prices. Le Little Siagon is easy to find and offers a good experience.

In our recent trip to Beijing, we had dinner at the Little Saigon and enjoyed it very much, so much so that we went twice ! friendly service, good food, good atmosphere/decor, sure it is not overly cheap but for us it was worth it and a nice change to Chinese food. Would recommend
