I liked my soup noodle (Chef's special). The portion is quite large, in fact none of us including 2 grown-up men couldn't finish their meal. But i think this place is slightly over priced. During dinner time, the service is very slow. The variety of the menu is more towards fast/simple dinner. There are no elaborated dishes. I wouldn't have... More

Lots of variety and everything is fresh and tasty! Saigon can be quite busy at lunch time and most popular restaurants tend to be. Offered are pre-cooked specialities where you choose 2 entrees with rice, or you can go a la carte. Recommendations include the child beef salad, marinated pork on fried rice, and beef sweets with lemon grass and... More

I am here often. Food quality never disappointed. Que up and have them arrange a plate for you from their lunch buffet. This is fast and tasty. You choose two main courses and they are quite flexible with special instructions. Alternatively order from their menu, your plate will be served within 15minutes or faster. Tables are often shared.

Went to Baradox for a few beers and the round the corner to Saigon for tasty veggie food. Its quick, uncomplicated good value and makes a change from Italian.

We visited as a group of four curios to try out this Vietnamese place as it's usually always relatively full. The interior wasn't special but the food they prepare there really makes up for it. I can especially recommend the pho soup! However, this place should really work on its service, staff was at times not really attentive and would... More

We had the traditional Pho with beef. I first was sceptical and thought it wouldn't taste good also regarding the price (sth about 23 chf)...BUT we were not disappointed. It surprisingly tasted authentic and very good. Still not the same as pho in Vietnam but very close. Thank you.

This restaurant came recommended by a Vietnamese person working at the information desk at the airport. Restaurant is not too far from the main train station. Their hot noodle soups were a welcome relief from the cold. I had the spicy lemongrass soup with rice noodles and everyone else in my family had the regular beef pho noodle soup. They... More

Their Pho Bo is delicious. I tried a few different places and their soup reminds me very much of what I had in Vietnam. I also like their homemade ice teas. Service is very friendly and super fast. Good value.

Lovely restaurant, variety of Asian food to choose from, delicious food and very good customer service. Prices were reasonable compared to what we had been paying elsewhere in Switzerland. Two main meals and two drinks came up to around 55 francs which is very good price. Each of the dishes came in Nice large portions enough to be shared by... More
