WHY GO

Tuck into tra­di­tional Viet­namese favourites, pre­pared the same way for years, at this charm­ing eatery.

WHAT TO OR­DER

Or­der the deep-fried chicken spring rolls to ap­pre­ci­ate the var­i­ous dip­ping sauces that ac­com­pany the dish. Sao Nam’s yel­low-coloured chicken and prawn pan­cake also in­cludes slices of star­fruit to en­sure it is brim­ming with con­trast­ing flavours. An­other very tasty and pop­u­lar dish is the man­gos­teen and prawn salad, full of sweet and sour tastes and flavour­some good­ness.

Two dishes that have been on the menu since the restau­rant’s in­cep­tion are beef stew and the chicken curry with their own unique spice pro­files. The chefs en­sure that the meat in each dish re­mains ten­der and juicy while the com­ple­men­tary sauces are rich and thick. The chicken curry is both sweet and spicy with chunks of sweet potato pro­vid­ing a con­trast­ing tex­ture.

The beef noo­dle soup is gen­er­ous and as good as any other found in Viet­nam. Bong thien ly or sky flow­ers is an in­ter­est­ing dish that isn’t listed on the menu but is worth ask­ing for just in case the chefs have been able to se­cure a sup­ply in the mar­kets. The flow­ers are lightly fried in gar­lic and are ab­so­lutely de­li­cious.
