A longstanding favourite with Saigon’s expat community, Skewers has been serving up simple tasty, well priced Mediterranean cuisine downtown Saigon since 2000.

Note: The information provided in this review was correct at time of publishing but may change. For final clarification please check with the relevant service

A handful of restaurants have seen through Saigon's changes over the past decade or more. A smaller number have flourished.

Skewers, from Vietnamese American chef Tristan Ngo, continues to be busy most nights with a predictable but satisfying Mediterranean menu.

If you're feeling like a break from Vietnamese flavours in a convenient downtown location, check out Skewers.
