Saigon Rose | Richmond, Melbourne

FEELING PECKISH?, MELBOURNE, Melbourne Inner East — By on 05/01/2012 10:20 am

Saigon Rose brings something a little different to Victoria Street. It may offer, just like the plethora of other eateries on this strip, ‘traditional Vietnamese cuisine’, but Saigon Rose is a little bit more posh, a little bit more decadent and yet still at the same inexpensive prices of its competition.

The chic, modern decor makes Saigon Rose feel more upmarket than its neighbours and this glamorous theme is carried through to the cooking. On the menu you might find things you’ve never tried before, like the curious but surprisingly delicious banana chicken. For a main you can’t go past the house-special salted prawns or chicken ribs. Also delectable are the roast duck in plum sauce and the beef in coconut cream.

The vegetarian menu is small but not uninteresting, and for all you sweet tooths you’ll be happy to know Saigon Rose offers slightly left-of-field desserts like banana and sago, and green-tea ice cream. On a street where it can be hard to distinguish one Vietnamese restaurant from another, Saigon Rose is a fine choice.
