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

They are our neighbours, but we just discovered them last week... first time, but certainly not the last! The duck was fantastic. Definitely worth every cent.

Friendly staff, large choice of dishes, cooked with fresh ingredients. The chef definitely knows his classics. We had a great time and will certainly go back. One of the best vietnamese in Europe.

OK, granted, I've never been to Vietnam, so I may not be an expert on the authenticity of these soups. Having eaten Vietnamese elsewhere in the world I can honestly say, these guys make some truly tasty soups. I can't necessarily vouch for the rest of the food as I've only ever eaten their soups. If I have a quarrel... More

Surprisingly good Asian for Basel, well done really. I had a perfectly delicious meal here. I would recommend this for sure since you probably won't find better Asian than this here. I had the last appetizer on the menu and the beef pho.

Excellent meal ... Shared two appetizers (spring roll varieties) and a beef salad. Very flavorful and delicious. The restaurant is very quaint and a bit small. The hostess and waitress were very kind and helpful but no English is spoken there ... So be ready. I'll definitely return. Great meal!

Met a friend here for lunch. Didn't have the chance to try the luncheon buffet which looked to be a good deal. Instead had a big bowl of traditional noodle soup with fresh herbs, beef strips, noodles and delicious broth. Service was friendly.

I have been working in Basel for 7 months off and on. I have really struggled to find restaurants that I want to bring my family to or talk about. Now I have two in Basel proper (See prior Wasabi revue) Overall - Saigon Moon is authentic Vietnamese at a reasonable price (for Switzerland!) with fast service, a happy regular... More
