It Just Has To Be Delicious

Saigon Palace on Urbanspoon

This restaurant is very popular with the local clientele and was quite busy when we visited. The menu has lots of asian items on it which aren’t necessarily Vietnamese. I am not really sure why asian restaurants sometimes try to be all things to all men, I would much rather they excelled in one cuisine. So we tried to choose from the Vietnamese style dishes on the menu.

For starters we chose Vietnamese rice paper rolls and meat spring rolls.

The starters were delicious, the rice paper rolls fat and full of prawns and veggies, and the deep fried meat spring rolls were tasty and succulent.

For main course we chose Golden Duck which was roast duck with a spring onion, garlic and ginger sauce. This was really delicious.

We also chose a beef dish – chilli and lemongrass beef, which was quality cuts of beef in a really flavoursome authentic sauce. We accompanied this with special fried rice.

We also had a dish delivered to our table which wasn’t for us – it looked like a lovely fish dish so I took a photo for my blog.

This is a restaurant that I would return to, all of the dishes were perfectly executed and tasted really good. A little gem in Clarkson.
