Chef's Recommended Dishes

Special Central Vietnamese Hot Beef Soup

Special Central Vietnamese Hot Beef Soup

Our signature soup, the #46, is an Okanagan phenomenon. Thin-shaven beef is placed over a mountain of vermicelli noodles, then dolloped with our garlic-chili sauce. Next, is a heaping spoonful of our, "secret recipe", satay sauce. This particular sauce is 100% original and cannot be duplicated. Our fresh-made chicken broth is then poured over-top to bring all the flavours together into a wonderfully perfect concoction.Customize your #46 with tofu and vegetable additions or substitutes.

Wonton Soup

Wonton Soup

Our Wonton Soup is in a class of its own, jam-packed with veggies, sliced BBQ pork, and home-made wontons. Its flavourful broth and abundance of ingredients make it, arguably, the best Wonton Soup in Kelowna.

Salad Rolls

Salad Rolls

Our Salad Rolls are always made fresh. Vermicelli noodles, BBQ pork, shrimp, and shredded lettuce, all wrapped up in rice paper, then dipped in our home-made peanut sauce. These rolls are enjoyed by all ages, even the most hard-to impress toddler.

Spring Rolls

Spring Rolls

Our golden-fried Spring Rolls are our #1 selling appetizer. The spiced, ground pork filling and thin-crispy wrapping are complimented with a light, homemade dip. Both roll and their sauce are so original in flavour you will find them completely irresistable.

Deep Fried Shrimp Wrapped with Ground Pork

Deep Fried Shrimp Wrapped with Ground Pork

These may sound strange at first but take just one bite and you will wonder where they have been all your life. Super tasty.

Saigon Sizzlers

Saigon Sizzlers

Saigon Sizzlers are a popular novelty. These dishes are stir-fried perfectly, every time, then loaded onto a scorching hot, cast-iron plate and served to your table. Try the #29. Chicken and beef together, accompanied with peppers and onions to flavour, then smothered in a hot, bubbling, black bean sauce. Pair it up with a curry rice or noodle to experience a harmonious blend of flavours that will surely impress.

Vietnamese Combos

Vietnamese Combos

Our Vietnamese Combos are favored by many. Because these 4 combos are perfectly balanced with the necessary items, we do not change each one but simply add an item and increase the previous portion. Choosing a combo is easy, just decide how hungry you are on a scale from 1-4 and your decision is made.

Fried Rice

Fried Rice

Typically, Asian fried rice is known as a filler but not at Saigon. Our fried rice is so unbelievably good it is quite normal to order a plate on its own for your meal. We do not believe that just because something is simple, it should be any less fantastic. Fried rice options are available in both classic and curry flavours.

Chow Mein

Chow Mein

Most Saigon chow-meins are offered in either Cantonese style or Regular. Cantonese chow-meins is layered with the noodles first steamed, then golden-fried in the wok. The chosen toppings are then stir-fried with a thick, garlic-oyster sauce then poured over-top. The House Special is a perfect choice when trying this style for the first time. Other sauces are available including black bean, szechuan, satay, and curry.

Regular chow-meins is prepared by combining all the ingredients, including the noodles, and stir-frying them together with a perfect blend of spices. This chow mein is another example of taking something simple and making it delicious.

Vermicelli Bowls

Vermicelli Bowls

Our Vermicelli bowls are always made fresh. A light cucumber and shredded lettuce medley is placed on the bottom, then covered with a huge helping of Vermicelli noodles. Your choice of toppings range from lemon grass stire-fries to skewered meats and spring rolls. Although these bowls are quite large, the fresh grill flavours and crisp ingredients will totally satisfy, but never make you feel weighed down.

Hot Pots

Hot Pots

Hot Pots are another popular novelty. Specialty stire-fries are crafted, then piled into a hot iron bowl and served to your table. The flavours continue to mix while you are dining, making each bite better than the last. We offer 4 different hot pot options that include meat, seafood, tofu, and vegetables. Every Hot Pot is delicious but if you have trouble deciding, the Ginger Beef Hot Pot, #69, is a big crowd-pleaser.

Hot and Sour Soup

Hot and Sour Soup

Our Hot and Sour Soup is our most popular soup from the Chinese menu. Baby shrimp, diced tofu, shredded carrots, mushroom strips, and bamboo, all swimming in a thick, decadent broth. The tangy flavour and spicy kick make it another successful Saigon original.

Sweet and Sour Pork Chops

Sweet and Sour Pork Chops

Our Sweet and Sour Pork Chops are a staff member favorite. We take high-quality, mini pork chops and tenderize to perfection. They are then tossed in a generous amount of, "special-recipe", sweet and sour sauce and poured onto a plate. The fall-off-the bone meat and rich, tangy sauce will just melt in your mouth every time.

Spicey Fresh Squid

Spicy Fresh Squid

If you like Calamari you will absolutely love the Spicy Fresh Squid. We take only thick, meaty pieces of squid and lightly batter with our home-made, spicy recipe. They are golden-fried, then stir-fried with spice, making them a Saigon delicacy. The intoxicating aroma will intice you the moment they arrive at your table.

Egg Foo Yung

Egg Foo Yung

Egg Foo Yung is a common dish in the world of Chinese cuisine. At Saigon we use a special cooking technique that transforms a classic into something extraordinary. Our pan-fried Foo Yung is crispy around the edges, perfectly cooked in the centre, then smothered in thick, rich garlic oyster sauce. An absolute masterpiece every time it is served.

Egg Rolls

Egg Rolls

We take great pride in the originality of our egg rolls. Typically a Chinese egg roll is puffy, due to the extreme amount of dough surrounding it. At Saigon we use a rice paper to envelop our roll rather than a dough. This enables the flavours of the delicious filling to be thoroughly enjoyed rather than masked or over-taken. Another staff-member favorite!

Chicken Lemon Grass

Chicken Lemon Grass

Lemon grass is a wonderfully unique Vietnamese ingredient. It is combined with peppers, onions, meats, and/or tofu, then stir-fried. When your lemon grass dish comes to your table its distinct flavour and aromatic scent are easy to identify and even easier to enjoy.

Almond Chicken

Almond Chicken

It is highly recommended you share this particular dish. A gigantic portion of all-white chicken breast is freshly battered and piece by piece it is deep-fried to a golden brown. Finished with crushed, toasted almonds and served with our house gravy, this dish is a great choice for 2 or more.

Gailan wiith Garlic

Gailan wiith Garlic

Gai-lan is Chinese broccoli. Its base is similar to asparagus, only thicker, and the ends are a bright leafy green. We stir-fry our gai-lan to an al-dente texture and coat it with a light garlic sauce. This is a great choice when deciding on a vegetable for your meal.

Shanghai Noodles

Singapore Rice Noodle

Another noodle dish in the Chow Mein family, the Singapore Rice Noodle is prepared by taking a very thin rice noodle, similar to that of angel hair and tossing it with baby shrimp, bean sprouts, BBQ pork, carrots, celery and curry. You can have this dish as spicy as you like and it goes great with a black bean sizzler.

Medium Beef Soup

Medium Beef Soup

This is the most traditional choice for Vietnames "Pho". We begin by filling a large soup bowl with wide rice noodles and placing paper-thin raw beef on top. Our intensely hot, home-made beef broth is then poured over-top which instantly cooks the beef to a perfect medium rare. The fantastic flavour of our soothing broth is due to the fact that every morning the chefs are hard at work preparing it, leaving hours for it to simmer until it is just right. A sprinkle of white onion to flavour and your soup is complete. Ask your server for a lime wedge and a side of sprouts to fully enjoy this soup.

Chinese Combos

Chinese combos are offered in three different sizes; 2 people, 4 people, and 6 people. Certain menu items are carefully considered for each combination to create a well-balanced meal with a variety of texture and flavour. The selections for these combos do not disappoint and will never leave you hungry. Within reason, certain substitutes are agreed to and will be prepared for your pleasure and/or convenience.

Shanghai Noodles

Although Shanghai Noodles are in the chow mein family they are really quite different. We take a thick round noodle, add baby shrimp, pork, shredded cabbage, carrot and celery and stir-fry into one. The blend of spices and mixture of ingredients make this a very popular item.

Braised 4 kinds of Vegetables

This vegetable dish is very green and very delightful, loaded with broccoli, snow peas, baby corn, and carrots. At no extra cost the chef will be pleased to add a few big pieces of braised tofu into the dish. It is highly recopmended you try this. Many who have claimed to fear tofu have been stunned to realize how unbelievably good it actually is. This is because the chefs know exactly how it should be flavoured and braised.
