My friend suggested this restaurant which he has frequented numerous times and it's one of his favourite Vietnamese restaurants. We ordered the summer rolls, mangosteen with prawn salad, fish wrapped pâté and crispy egg omelette with chicken & prawn. We particular liked the mangosteen with...More

We had come here with high hopes as the reviews seemed good and we had a craving for vietnamese. Unfortunately, the food in general lacked a lot of flavour. We ordered the fresh spring rolls which were nice but didn't taste that fresh. Then we...More

Fantastic evening! The food was amazing as always. We had a delicious meal with great service. You have to try the paper wrapped prawns and the green papaya salad!

A small restaurant in the Bukit Bintang Area, some tables outside and lot of space inside (with A/C). The menu is rather small (which I like) and some dishes were even out of stock (which is, IMHO, no issue - rather an indicator of using...More

I've been visiting Sao Nam for years. Selfish as it sounds, I tried to keep it a secret since I'm not a particular fan of being a mosquito bait while waiting for a table. That's what happened this past weekend and figured it got featured...More

We visited on a stormy night, so it was pretty quiet (my brother had been previously when it had been very busy). A good range of food, quickly cooked and very tasty. Pleasant service and not obtrusive.

(This is probably closer to 4.5 stars to me.)  Sao Nam's food serves dishes with outstanding flavors.  It's also a very pretty restaurant that made me think of wine "caves" in Europe, with the colors and materials.  And the staff is friendly and patient.  But...More
