Saigon Café, Level 1
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 those adventurous 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, which altogether 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 sweet endings.

recommend this hotel
We visited SGN in April, then decided to go on the Mekong River Cruise so we opted to stay at the Sheraton again. We are senior leisure travelers, who enjoy touring, shopping and eating, but need a comfortable, clean and safe hotel. Sheraton Saigon met all our expectations and more. The staff is welcoming, helpful and friendly. The location is great, close to shopping areas, historical spots and many excellent restaurants. The breakfast buffet on the 2nd floor has a lavish spread and the Mojo Café provides refreshing drinks and snacks as you watch all the activity on Dong Khoi. Both the standard and tower rooms are comfortable with more luxury and amenities in the tower with an awesome club lounge. Our flight departure was very late but we were accommodated with a late check out and permitted to wait in the lounge after checking out. After 2 stays here, I highly recommend this hotel.
