Saigon in Cape Town has become one of the hot destinations for excellent sushi since their renovations in November 2008, when they built a Sushi Bar and Roof Terrace. Saigon boasts the ideal atmosphere with its soft, subdued lights and breathtaking views of Table Mountain. The restaurant’s Vietnamese décor is well done without having a theme.

Vietnamese food predominates on the menu, with Japanese elements. Try the Grilled Chicken Skewer and the Make-Yourself Lettuce Wraps with noodles, sweet chili sauce, prawns, and fresh herbs as starters.

The Saigon Ginger Fish, coated in a batter, the Cashew Nuts, and the Spicy Beef Basil with chili sauce are a few of the most well-liked Main Courses. Noodles or rice can be served with any of the main courses.

If you still have room after your opulent First and Main Courses, try Saigon’s unique Deep-Fried Ice Cream. The ice cream is served with their honey syrup after being deep-fried in a batter casting.

Standing its ground among the various eateries on Kloof Street, this is one of those places where reservations are advised because it’s always busy, day or night.
