Although there were small tables available, I had to sit at a window bar or on an occupied table. Propably just because I was solo. I had steamed spring rolls as apetizer and crispy noodles for maincourse. The spring rolls taste was ok but they were almost cold when served. The crispy noodles where like uncooked noodles. Only in de... More

This is a fast food joint... With that said it's a good pho and noodle dishes for the size portion in Switzerland. For those who expect to have an authentic Vietnamese, just expect slightly tailored to limited ingredients here in Switzerland than you will be ok.

I had a very nice noodle soup w lemongrass. Delicious. Friendly staff and good, freshly made vietnamese cooking. Remembered it from a previous visit and it was just as good as I remembered it. Well worth a visit for either lunch or dinner. Not super-fancy.

The food is excellent and the presentation is beautiful. Value for money is also very good and the staff is friendly. But it's a small restaurant and usually extremely crowded. So it can get very noisy and you need a lot of patience because the service is really busy. I recommend the Pho with chicken which takes just as good... More

Had lunch here this past Friday. Food choice is good and dishes served were tasty and plenty. Maybe because it was busy but service was a bit lacks / slow / inattentive. Best to make a reservation if you come in the early lunchtime (12:00 -13:00).

The restaurant is modern furnished with focus to be able to serve fast - a nice but not romantic place. The food is very good: the vietnamese soup tasted as in Vietnam. A red curry dish was tasty, creamy and not too spicy. Salad was prepared with fresh ingredients. The service was fast and friendly. Definitively a good place to... More

Even though Zurich is an international city it doesn't have the same culinary diversity that other global cities have. On top of that the prices are very high . It was therefore a huge surprise to me that I could find really good pho at a decent price in this city. Saigon is brilliantly placed in the heart of the... More

You have the possibility to have buffet platter for Lunch only in addition to à la carte all day long. Food was average and we were disappointed. We are big Vietnamese gastronomy... More

I am writing this review from the hospital. I went to Saigon Vietnamese restaurant today. I ordered Bun Cha Gio Rindfleisch (grilled beef noodles salad). The grilled beef is undercooked. Staffs wear t-shirt saying "life is too short for tasteless soup". I am saying "life is too short for uncooked food!".

I visited many times this palce and always ordered the pho soup. The soup is a good portion, but if you are very hungry order an appetizer with it. The atmosphere is average because you are sitting very close to other people.
