Madame Saigon Restaurant in Phuket

Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine in Phuket Town

Madame Saigon is an attractive and clean-cut Vietnamese restaurant located in the impressive and expansive Royal Phuket Marina on Phuket’s east coast just north of Phuket Town.

With bright décor and lots of natural light it’s a cheery place to be and the Vietnamese dishes created here perfectly complement the setup as they are ultra-fresh and healthy, featuring vitamin-rich vegetables, noodle broths, delicious herb combinations, unique-tasting sauces, and just-caught fish – all served up in eye-catching crockery and bowls and none with nasty additives; it’s all natural and simple – the best combination.

Large vases stand by the glass doors and outside seating place of Madame Saigon while a huge wall photo of a pretty Asian lady overlooks the entire restaurant.

Tables and chairs are pine coloured and decorative hanging plates adorn the opposite wall. It’s quite minimalist but at the same time a comfortable place to eat with a wall-length sofa parallel to the tables. French period music tumbles out of the sound system and there’s a pleasing sense of balance to the place.

Vietnamese cuisine is renowned for being healthy, light, and big on fresh herbs and therefore is ideal for those who like to indulge – albeit healthily and this is certainly one of the better places in Phuket to have your proverbial cake and eat it, too.

We enjoy creating our own ‘rolls’ by using lettuce leaves, herbs, sweet and sour sauces, and chao tom (minced prawn and pork on lemongrass skewers – 220 baht) but ready-made rolls are also served at Madame Saigon.

Delicious ‘nem rau’ (crisp spring rolls with chicken, condiments, and vegetables) along with summer rolls, or nem mua ha, that consist of guava, carrot, fresh herbs, with chili vinegar emulsion served with prawn/chicken/vegetables (both dishes 160 baht) are just perfect as an appetizer.

For mains we get a bit adventurous and launch into a plate of cha ca – pan-fried red snapper with turmeric, dill, and spring onions (290 baht) along with vegetable pho – a many-featured broth (200 baht) that has beef and seafood options, and a plate of peppered beef along with the option of rice noodles.

This, if you haven’t guessed by now, is an exciting way to experience a whole new raft of flavours and textures and by way of explanation there is a succinct information section on the menu about the yi and yang principle of Vietnam’s food and its many benefits. Rounding off the meal in style are bananas rolled in a delicate combination of almonds and assorted nuts. This is a must try because, as simple as it sounds, the dish is an explosion of flavours. 

Madame Saigon is well worth a visit if you’re looking for a chance to try something entirely different in attractive and eye-pleasing and luxuriant surroundings.
