Singapore has its own Little Saigon down Clarke Quay’s River Valley Road. This riverside Vietnamese restaurant serves classy interpretations of Saigonese cuisine, but doubles as a bar and party spot, as you’d expect in this vibrant stretch of the city. The modern Vietnamese dishes created by head chef Hoang Hung Dung bring the crowds in, but there’s an equally large contingent who have made Little Saigon their weekend springboard of choice, dropping in before 8pm to take advantage of the half-price happy hour, or maybe catch the house band, Acoustic Bounce. With buffet menus available for large groups, Little Saigon is the perfect gateway to a party.

Take a look at Little Saigon’s set lunch menus!
The brains behind Little Saigon’s deeply savvy menu is Hoang Hung Dung, who knows how to please the modern palates of Singapore as much as he knows his classic Vietnamese cuisine. Prawn and pineapple rolls, delicious fresh spring rolls and a porky fried version of the same are default starters here, while the calamari, sugar cane prawns, and the unusual fusion of prawns with kiwi cocktail sauce keep maritime finger food fans happy. A Little Saigon special has to be the Saigon roasted chicken, with seasoned chicken and sticky coconut rice on the side. Even better are the chicken wings stuffed with mushrooms, vermicelli, and kaffir lime zest. Or, adventurous as you are, you can go for a starfruit beef salad or even frogs legs here! That said, if you can’t decide, there’s always the Saigon Party Platter available at this River Valley Road, Clarke Quay restaurant.
The other aspect of Little Saigon worth checking out is undoubtedly their bar selection. Vietnamese beers, classic cocktails and martinis, and a special Asian cocktail selection always offer exciting ways to kickstart a weekend hanging out in and around Clarke Quay, synonymous with party-times in Singapore. Where else along River Valley Road can you find curious cocktails like Little Saigon’s Hanoi martini, the Saigon Kick, or the Ipho? You’ve got to try these three, at least. And, as with their food, Little Saigon offer great drinks packages for entertaining larger crowds. Book ahead, and bring your friends to this buzzing slice of Saigon in the heart of Singapore.
I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere at little saigon. The service was good until it became very crowded and then they service staff struggled a little to continue to scan the customers and attend to their needs. The food was good.
Not an authentic vietnamnese food, especially the pho taste very sweet. However if you look for cozy place and cheap alcohols here is the place
