Le Little Saigon

French in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

Longstanding bistro restaurant with a menu that melds east and west – think Vietnamese phở (beef and rice noodle soup) alongside French-style roast chicken and fried potatoes. The food is so-so, but the roof terrace (May onwards) remains a choice perch for a glass of vino.

Arrive well before 9.30pm as staff tend to be in a hurry to shut up shop.
