Brasserie Sài Gòn

Vesterbro

4 stars and red hearts for the Lê family's French-Vietnamese brasserie cuisine.

Why you should dine here:

  • Reviewer-rated Vietnamese: 4 stars in Berlingske
  • Voted restaurant of the month, Euroman
  • The Lê Lê family is back on the gastro scene
  • Unique French-Vietnamese flavor pairing

 

Gastronomic colonization to 4 stars

Taste Sài Gòn's unique gastro coupling between Vietnam and France. A fresh and well-seasoned taste experience that both Berlingske and Politiken have awarded with 4 stars and red hearts.

Euroman names Sài Gòn as the restaurant of the month and writes: "At this restaurant, French and Vietnamese cuisine meet in a beautiful union."

The menu is a unique combination of juice and strength. Filled with French finesse, aromatic simmering dishes with nuances of mild, aromatic curry and distinctive Vietnamese flavors such as lemongrass, fish sauce, ginger, garlic and coriander in addition to a host of freshly picked herbs.

Eat e.g. oysters with garnish, ceviche with sticky rice, steak frites, deep-fried and juicy frog legs, spring rolls or the national rice noodle soup pho with garnishes and a baguette on the side.

 

Uniqueness of a brasserie

"The Lê family is back with flying colors" - writes Svend Rasmussen from Berlingske.

At Vesterbro Torv, the brasserie opens its doors to a family restaurant experience. The decor is classic, stylish with white tablecloths on the tables and a French-inspired interior with decor from both Asia and France.

Sài Gòn provides a sublime charm on the floor with expert service. Guest reviews from Google mention, among other things:

“Service was phenomenal and we were very impressed with their interpretation of Vietnamese cuisine which was modern but also authentic.”

“Attentive and friendly service.”

 

Well-known Lê family at the helm

The name Lê will ring a bell for some. The family behind it was for a number of years behind the Vietnamese Lê Lê kitchen, which was the city's first Vietnamese restaurant.

The brasserie is owned by Dung Lê Hoang and has cookbook author and celebrity chef Sister Anh with her in the kitchen. Their French-Vietnamese roots are a gift to the Danish audience who want to familiarize themselves with Asian cuisine, which only has a slightly spicy touch to it.
