Walking into Sao Nam is like stepping into an eatery in Vietnam; its ambience, décor and food is as close as one could get to the real thing.
Sao Nam is perfect for those seeking culinary authenticity rather than ‘Malaysianised’ Vietnamese cuisine. Fresh greens accompanying many dishes are not merely as decoration but rather as an integral component.
Tasty appetisers such as spring rolls (fresh or deep-fried) are classic dishes dependent upon specific sauces and three freshly imported herbs. The startling yellow prawn and chicken also uses fresh herbs and slices of fresh starfruit to offer a delicious blend of contrasting taste sensations. Various salads are available including the legendary but seasonal mangosteen and prawn salad as well as the young coconut shoot salad. The beef cooked in bamboo and flamed at the table is not only one of the most popular dishes, but one of the most visually impressive and tastiest.
Desserts include bananas cooked or frozen in several ways and a very smooth and creamy crème caramel. Even an uncomplicated dish of coconut ice cream makes a fitting sweet end to the excellent meal.
