Hieu and Tram are an absolutely gorgeous young vietnamese couple who have combined simple flavours to stunning effect. Every dish we tried tonight, was out of this world. Perfectly cooked, beautifully seasoned, and done in such a way that let the lovely Fully Fresh ingredients speak for themselves.
My wife and I have been disappointed time and again by restaurants here that smell amazing as you walk past, but something always let's you down. Not Original Saigon. Located right across Ruthven street in Nth Toowoomba from the mill precinct, just down from the Bunnings, the first thing you notice is the glorious smell of Eastern food, and it only gets better.
Hieu is the perfect host. He is charming and wonderfully genuine, and makes sure to pass on your thoughts to his wife Tram in the kitchen. Saigon Is a delightful little restaurant in ruthven street toowoomba, with a sweetly comforting ambience at perfect odds to put you at ease after the rush of the world outside.
The food is prepared perfectly and with barely a wait. As I said before, we sampled 5 different dishes tonight, and all were just exceptional.
If you are looking for a taste of the orient that is fresh, healthy, and exceptional value, you Have to try Original Saigon. The most expensive dish was $15 and all portions are filling but not overly so. Lovingly prepared, like a vietnamese home cooked meal by Tram, it's a treat for your taste buds.
Go see Hieu and Tram and you'll not regret it.. and you'll be back. We will!!
