Stop by for dinner at Darwin’s only Vietnamese restaurant and enjoy the clean, fresh flavours of the food in funky surrounds. Moving into new digs on the other side of Smith Street some 10 months ago, the new venue is sleek and modern with the black and white interior off-set by a crimson light feature on the rear wall.

The fact that Vietnamese Saigon Star is Darwin’s only Vietnamese restaurant might be enough to entice hungry patrons through its doors, but its unique character doesn’t stop there. Moving into funky new digs on the other side of Smith Street some 10 months ago, the new venue is sleek and modern with the black and white interior off-set by a crimson light feature on the rear wall. Outdoors, pavement seating is separate from the main dining room and enclosed in glass, lending it a futuristic feel and ensuring diners relief from the humidity. Access is via automatic sliding doors and waitresses float easily between the two spaces.

The friendly staff is another plus and they’ll take your order with demure smiles before shouting it through the stainless steel window to the kitchen. The menu is extensive (with some popular Chinese options thrown in for good measure) and, for the most part, delicious. Despite burnt onion, the classic Chinese san choi bau is cooked with quality ingredients and full of flavour. Mains are divided into sections: soups, Vietnamese coleslaw, noodle soups, fried rice noodles, fried egg noodles, rice vermicelli, rice dishes, and chicken, beef, pork, prawn, scallop, squid, fish and vegetarian dishes. Suffice to say you’ll never get bored. Try the rice noodle soup with slices of beef and celebrate the clean, fresh flavours of South East Asia.

RebeccaR:

This is the best place to get Vietnamese in Australia I think. Everything is so fresh, and you can taste the flavours. I go here ever time I'm in Darwin, for lunch and dinner.review  17/04/2012

Andrew Tea:

Had dinner at the Saigon Star with a party of 12 tonight. Great food, I mean really great! Couldn't fault the subtle and distinctive flavors, but the service was slow. Would I recommend going there? Sure would. 4 out of 5. Oh, check your booking though - we reserved but they didn't have us on the books, and fitting in a party of 12 was no easy feat.review  02/01/2012
