Located in the bustling city center, Saigon Noon sits amongst unassuming cafes and shops dotted around Alexandra Street, but they’re definitely worth the inevitable hunt for a parking space.

Walking into big smiles and greetings, Erik and his team work like a well-oiled machine to bring you an authentic experience with fresh, fast and affordable Vietnamese food right here in Hamilton. Plentiful windows that look onto the busy streets make for prime people-watching while feasting on comforting dishes that transport you to the streets of Vietnam. Authentic Vietnamese flavours can get lost in the Western world, but Erik makes it his mission to revive them. With 15+ years experience in the food industry, he’s just the man for the job. 

Street food like Pho and Banh Mi are the stand-out choices, but trust that you can’t go wrong here. The meat is prepared and cooked daily, while baguettes are specially ordered. Keeping every ingredient as fresh as possible and supporting local suppliers is the aim of the game.

If you love to eat good food but also have food preferences or allergies, you’ll be right at home here. Most menu items are rice based (ticking the gluten-free box!) and they have vegetarian and vegan options, to boot.

Order several dishes to share with friends or keep all the goodness for yourself - they have their own app for direct ordering and delivery.
