Nice - relaxed - Asian food in Basel

Definitely a good place ... Portions are huge .. So... take care before you order.. Got to improve their desserts section (hence 4 star). Service deserves a 5 star rating. Cozy place. Not too expensive.

We stumbled across this restaurant through tripadvisor. As I was in Vietnam a few months ago and can still taste the amazing food from then I was pretty excited. However having grown up in Basel I was used to my share of bad Asian restaurants which work on the cheap for expensive prices. I was so happy I wasn't disappointed.... More

Walked in the restaurant just before 2pm which is the restaurant's closing time but was greeted with a smile. We ordered our food to share between us. The beef salad, papaya salad and Vietnamese spring rooks arrived and we tugged into our food and everyone had a smile on our faces,. Then the pho and flat noodles arrived, again we... More

Our local and not a bad one at that. Love the staff here and glad to see it finally doing well, because it deserves it. The phos are superb.

Nice selection of Vietnamese and other Asian dishes such as Chinese and Thai. If you have ever been to those places, I'd recommend ordering your meal "spicy" or at least some fresh chilis on the side, as the regular order is VERY bland. Probably the least spicy Asian food I have ever tasted in my life :-)

Nice place,not much but clean. The service is good and they make you feel that they do everything they can for you.The food is really good and the soup we take was a big plate.You won't regret spending your money and surely you won't be starving after eating!It's not expensive!I would hardly recommend this place!

We were in Basel and decided to have some Asian food for dinner and came across this Vietnamese restaurant. Food is good, staff is friendly but I don't feel to give more added value. The atmosphere is quite cold and the restaurant itself and its furnitures are not so charming. Some more decoration, such as i.e. warming lights, typical plants,... More

If you're really craving Vietnamese food and don't want to drive outside of Basel, then this is the place for you. The people are really friendly and the service is great but the food for me, was a bit underwhelming. We had Pho which is a vietnamese staple and it just lacked in the traditional flavors. Perhaps we should have... More

I regularly go there for their lunch buffet. I normally do not eat at buffets, but decided to try due to the price (16.50 CHF). The food was actually good (keep in mind the fried stuff is only REALLY good when fresh, and not sitting for a minute). I have had a couple of their regular plates and enjoyed those... More

After quite a few business trips to Basel, I was looking for something a little different. After some searching, I found Saigon Moon. I love Vietnamese food, so I was excited to give this a try. To be totally honest, it is not the best Vietnamese I have had, but is such a nice change from Swiss-German food, that I... More
