Al Sham Saigon

Best Arabic Food in Saigon - Incredible Syrian hospitality

Whilst humble by appearance Al Sham may not have been on your list of places to check out, but my god what a amazing find this place is, from the food through to the hospitality if you have not experienced Syrian dining then look no further then Al sham.
