What we say: 4 stars

Located close to the middle of downtown, the Golden Elephant serves up some of the best Thai food in Saigon.

The themed decor, including pictures of the Thai royal family, and warm yellow walls make for an inviting and relaxing atmosphere.

The menu offers a wide range of dishes, from curries and noodles to soups and salads as well as several vegetarian options. They also carry some Thai beer hard to find elsewhere in the city. Waiters are friendly and helpful.

Free delivery is available for orders of at least 100,000 VND.
