We had a beautiful experience at Saigon 60s. The staff were friendly and helpful with what to order, the food was authentic and they make a good coffee too. Highly recommend.

While staying in MIQ I was lucky enough to have Saigon 60s down the street. So happy that they deliver too! The summer rolls are fresh, big and very tasty. My other favorite is the rice noodle stir fry with vegetables. Great mix of delicious...veg, noodles and sauce were all very very good. Online ordering is easy and food is delivered promptly.More

The Egg Coffee is very nice, but too sugary. Highly recommend stir-fried noodles, very tasty! The staff are friendly and helpful.More

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. We will work harder to improve our food quality. We agree that the egg custard is on the sweet side due to the amount of condensed milk used (this is quite critical to achieve the thick and...More

The restaurant was busy, the surroundings clean and tidy. My beef pho was excellent, Al dente glass noodles, a tasty broth. Perfect lunch on a Winter's day

We came here for lunch and had their spicy lemongrass noodles, grilled pork salad and children's chicken pho. All 100% scrumptious. We enjoyed their ice dripped viet coffee as well. Husband wanted to end our trip with dinner here and we came here again. Same...menu prices apply for dinner, and we tried their vietnamese savoury pancake in addition to other dishes (grilled pork noodle salad, fried beef noodle salad and spicy lemongrass noodle soup). Husband really enjoyed the crispy pancake & condiments as a side complement. He chose it with prawns. Our whanau all nibbled off a bit of the pancake and enjoyed the contrast of textures (bean sprouts, crispy pancake, juicy prawns, crisp lettuce, all dipped in tangy fish sauce). Do note that it is a nice light solo meal for a small eater, but it may not fill up a hungry man. Still highly recommended as an experience as it is not common. My 2 young kids gobbled down their noodle salads at lightning speed. We recommend choosing the fried pork noodle salad over the beef noodle salad IF you can't decide between the two flavours, but both are lovely in their own right. The fried beef tastes savoury-sweet, reminiscent of teriyaki beef flavour. Great casual eatery service with clean set-up overall, I enjoyed the large (muted) TV screen showing sights of vietnamese cuisine and daily life. It was a great virtual journey into Vietnam while enjoying their cuisine. Noise levels were not loud even when crowded. We appreciated the wash basin and free wifi they had for customers. Only downside was that the nearest toilet was 3 minutes walk away @I-Site (daytime), 4 minutes walk away @ behind I-Site (nighttime) so if you go with young kids in tow, do ask for directions to the loo early on. :)More

Went for the 1st time a few weeks ago on many recommendations from friends and have been back almost weekly now because it's so delicious !! I have tried a new dish every time and they are all epic - I might just go through...everything they have on the menu haha! The Vietnamese pancake is a super cool spin on a meal and the Hot egg coffee is just next level. Highly recommended and heading back this week :) Cheers to the team and chefs !! See you soonMore

Came here with a friend and we got the classic beef and duck pho. I have had lots of pho in different restaurants in nz , and this was definitely up there and possibly the best i've had. This was a wholesome and friendly restaurant...and overall was pretty good prices for the quality of the food(Classic pho around $14.90). They have a wide range of options which all look delicious. They also do a wide selection of (non alcoholic ) drinks like juice smoothies and ice tea if your feeling parched from the hot pools or walks. The only thing i think could be improved is to have access to toilets and perhaps more warmth for winter months but, I don't want to rate this down as i'm more focused on the food. I would definitely come back again. I would love to try the egg coffee next time and other dishes too.More
