I've been visiting Sao Nam for years. Selfish as it sounds, I tried to keep it a secret since I'm not a particular fan of being a mosquito bait while waiting for a table. That's what happened this past weekend and figured it got featured...More

We visited on a stormy night, so it was pretty quiet (my brother had been previously when it had been very busy). A good range of food, quickly cooked and very tasty. Pleasant service and not obtrusive.

(This is probably closer to 4.5 stars to me.)  Sao Nam's food serves dishes with outstanding flavors.  It's also a very pretty restaurant that made me think of wine "caves" in Europe, with the colors and materials.  And the staff is friendly and patient.  But...More

Although our party of five spent RM361 at this restaurant there was no standout dish. The Pho was ordinary and the pancake a bit overwhelming. OK the fish curry was good and we loved the deep fried spring rolls. But overall nothing that would make...More

Plenty of promise at this well situated and decorated restaurant. It's won plenty of prizes but the food was a bit underwhelming. Our party of five loved the deep fried spring rolls (RM22) and fish curry (RM38) but the duck in tamarind sauce was nothing...More

This was our first visit to Sao Nam but it won't be our last. We arrived on a Saturday evening without a booking so we were lucky to get a table. Parking in the area can be problematic as it is close to Jalan Alor...More
