For the real Vietnamese dining experience, don’t let bygones be bygones. Go Saigon!

Taking on the chilled vibes of a café, Saigon is perfect for a relaxed dinner. It’s neutral décor, exposed brickwork and grey tones make for a relaxing space. Think an edgy, minimalist café for millennials and you’re in the right ball park.

Their menu is refreshingly concise, with carefully chosen dishes that range from sharing plates to salads and noodles. Celebrate the seasons with their springrolls and summerolls that come with your choice of filling. If you fancy something truly heart-warming, move on to their grilled lamb racks or go for a noodle soup which you can personalise with whichever meat you fancy. The sharing plates cater to all tastes. The wakanui beef rolls are great for meat lovers whilst the fresh grilled salmon fillet is perfect for a light supper.

And whilst you’re there, you might as well sample one of their expertly made cocktails. It’d be rude not to!

Highly recommend Saigon Van Grill Bar. We had the deep fried spring rolls, which were some of the best I have ever had. The Pho was full of flavour and Vietnamese pancake was light and crispy on the outside. Delicious. The menu is not large, but on the plus side that made it easier to decide what to have. The staff were so friendly and funny it made dining there a pleasure, We will definitely be back.

Alex was a great host. He explained the menu and special dishes, made us feel right at home. The restaurant is in a lovely old building. The food was great and thought it to be very authentic cuisine. They can expect us back.

What a happy smiley team who served us. Food was delicious and their enjoyment of their jobs and the Cuba Street culture was obvious. An absolutely delicious dessert, we were convinced to try it by one of the staff.

Beautiful. Authentic Vietnamese food and really excellent service. Staff were very friendly. I dined with my parents, who had never eaten Vietnamese before, and our waitress was great for advice and tips on how to use chopsticks! I really enjoyed the summer spring rolls and vegetable curry was gorgeous.

We had a really enjoyable dinner here (two adults and two kids.) I highly recommend the freshly squeezed orange juice and the soft shell crab! Everyone else loved their dishes and raved about the crispy spring rolls. They did look good. Thanks for a lovely meal. We will be back.

Loved our meal at Saigon Van Grill. The mixed rolls entree was yum and the mains of beef rolls and lemon butter fish were awesome and very very filling but healthy with lots of greens. really pleasant atmosphere and will def visit again next time we are in Wellington

Great evening. The food was excellent. Beautifully balanced dishes with all the fragrance, texture and freshness you’d expect from good Vietnamese food. Felt a bit embarrassed we were paying half price for such a quality meal. Lovely servers as well.

Located on Wellington's cosmopolitan Cuba Street - Saigon Van Grill is easily a restaurant you could walk by mistaking the entrance as a private home if you weren't in the know.

The restaurant is small and intimate with additional seating upstairs if required. All but two of the main floor tables were full during our dinner, which allowed for a lovely atmosphere and experience at Saigon Van Grill. The menu is extensive and offers a range of options as well as daily specials.

My partner and I chose to share all the dishes and opted for crispy spring rolls, pork belly and mushroom skewers followed by a pork belly and egg main. All the dishes tasted wonderful and certainly did not disappoint. Service was prompt and dishes came out as and when ready. Certainly would recommend if in the area.

Thanks for a lovely evening - look forward to seeing you again soon.
