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

Saigon is a Vietnamese restaurant next to Selnau train station. The place is nice, many tables and a lot of large windows. Service was friendly and relatively fast. 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.

This restaurant specialise in "Vietnamese" food but there are not that many specialities from Vietnam. I have eaten Vitnamese food in Berlin and Stuttgart and that was real Vietnamese food. Here is s half way house with a sort of mish mash between Vietnamese, Chinese and god knows what other Asian foods. I find it very bad value and I... More

A real gem in the city! The selection is great and typically vietnamese, served with fresh herbs and ingredients. The restaurant get quite busy at lunch time so come early or make reservation but if you don't, it's well worth the wait! I try a new dish every time I go and never get disappointed. The prices are reasonable for... More

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
