Saigon Café

Information provided by the proprietor: Located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, on 28th November 2016, Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers re-launched its Saigon Café Restaurant - one of Saigon’s most renowned buffets - after a 3-month-long renovation project with a total redesign, including not only the look and feel but also the dining concept.

Combining past and present, Saigon Café Restaurant contributes to the new life of Sheraton Saigon and by the multi-sensory engaging concept, creates a perfect place for both residents and travellers to immerse in this mythical city. As part of the hotel refurbishment, this new restaurant design, from Noor Design and Group8 Asia, creates an atmosphere enhanced by carefully composed elements that draw on senses and culture, spirit and communal experience that are the very essence of Saigon.

The all-day-dining space itself, inspired by Saigonese traditions, local materials, customs and styling from the heydays of the city, has been enlarged and now takes up most of the mezzanine level and is flooded with natural light through higher ceilings and windows, opening up great views to Dong Khoi and Dong Du streets. Saigon Café Restaurant seats 254, and boasts a semi-private area, offering up to 42 covers.

“We’re excited to announce the re-launch of Saigon Café Restaurant - the destination for diners who search for a distinguished buffet experience, harmonizing a special element of “guest interactions”. Every moment and every plate delivered to our guests can be customizable, personalized and of unexpected delight.Combined together will take you on a contemporary voyage through the golden ages of Saigon and many exciting destinations from around the globe,” said Mr. Scott Hodgetts, General Manager of Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers.

The same level of thought and attention to detail which went into the interiors and materials also went into the culinary concept reinvention. Saigon Café Restaurant redefines the way in which buffet is often perceived in Ho Chi Minh City. The restaurant presents a feast for all senses, focusing on personalization, the constant food-chef-diner connections, and making each interaction a unique dining experience.

Seven live stations, including four show areas, are spread over a large and open space overlooking Dong Khoi, inviting diners to join an exciting culinary journey around the world through premium seafood, mouth-watering Pan-Asian cuisine, Vietnamese specialties, Western, Japanese and Indian delights. Innovative drinks are must-try’s, and trendy desserts as sweet endings.

Nothing to Hide

Most of the cooking is done in full view of the guests, with much theatre and interaction. Saigon Café Restaurant ensures everything is out in the open, freshly cooked and regularly replenished. There is a long table by the window, along with more intimate seating, overlooking Dong Khoi, giving diners a great vantage point for people-watching. The main area is smartly laid out in a spacious sleek setting designed to take guests on a culinary journey, exploring the world’s cuisines.

Sensational Stations

Desserts (Show Area): The dessert show area is an entire station that displays a delicious selection of professionally made desserts.

Innovative Drinks & Trendy Desserts

Sunday Brunch comes with a collection of creative “adult” beverages, such as the syringe shots filled with cocktails, and mojito bubbles made by dropping flavored liquid into sodium alginate (extracted from brown seaweed), producing spheres that pop and burst forth a unique flavor inside the guest’s mouth.
