They have a nice selection of dishes, including some Thai. The price is quite reasonable and the waiters are friendly. MUCH better than Wagamama next door....

The food is really good, and it's no accident that this place is always full and even overcrowded over lunchtime. Don't even think of arriving here at 12.00 with no reservation. Service can be really slow at peak times, though. I've waited for half an hour more than once here, but it's still worth it as the quality is high... More

I had a nice late lunch here on a Saturday. The restaurant was easy to find and not crowded. I enjoyed a nice bowl of Bo Bun Hue. Enjoyed it with a Saigon beer. Then finished with a nice Vietnamese coffee. All were pretty good (read 3.5 dots). It is hard to pay that much for SE Asian food but,... More

Saigon is a great place for Vietnamese food. It is located on corner which brings lots of daylight light into the restaurant. You can sit by the Window or by the more ordinary tables. I was there for lunch tried a delicious Beef Pho. The place was quite crowed during the Sunday afternoon. Service was up to the standard.

Went there in August with a colleague, had summer rolls and a pho soup. Both were zingy and tasty, with lots of herbs and vegetables. The service is OK. I generally go after 2pm when it's quiet and there is no pressure to eat fast. By Zurich standards, it is quite affordable - usually about CHF 30 for a two... More

We went to Sai Gon after we saw they offered a free treat with the ZuriCard. We ended up ordering two entrees and getting TWO FREE summer rolls! They staff was very friendly and the prices were extremely affordable given prices of comparable restaurants in Zurich. We paid 40,80CHF for two entrees and a soda. Very good place to eat,... More

Good Vietnamese restaurant near Sihlstrasse tram stop. Good food, the staff could be a bit friendlier and the portions just a little bit larger, but this is after all downtown Zürich. The place otherwise is pleasantly noisy and has a soul of its own. Good place to come for lunch.

I was there for lunch a couple of times over the past 24 months. It's really having an Asian spirit. It's fast, crowded and quite loud. First and foremost however it's tasty and for Zurich not too expensive. You have the choice of a la carte or the buffet. Buffet is on a fix price for two items plus rice.... More
