Best Vietnamese food I have ever had

I went here for lunch today, and had tofu summer rolls and a vegetarian pho. It is still the best place I have ever been for both - lots of herbs and subtle flavour in both dishes, with a flavoursome broth in the pho and lots of vegetables. At 25-30 francs for two courses, it's pretty much in line... read more

Very Slow and too much Glutamate in the Food... This Saigon is far away from Vietnam. Service was okay, Price Standard for zurich, not cheap, not overly expensive.

This is a little "street vendor" affiliated with a bar right on a lovely plaza in Old Town Zurich. I would have eaten lunch there every day if I could. Most of the time, I got the chicken Vietnamese sandwich, which was amazing. I highly recommend it; the bread was soft and delicious, the meat and vegetables were so flavorful,... More

This is one of the best places to enjoy asian food in Zurich. The spices from East Asia are a delight, personal recommendation is the Tom Ka Gai with rice or Chop Sui with Beef. The price is in avarage to Zurich, between 20 and 30 Franks per person, absolutely alright for the location. Service: +1 Location: +1 Food: +1... More

Meals are very good. I like the Vietnamese style as served there. It is a pity the place is so noisy. It makes it difficult for business lunch. I have been there very frequently, also for dinner. Maybe one could add some "noise-breaking" sculptures or so.

I love this restaurant, our favorite soup is Pho soup and have tried it in many different countries. Saigon restaurant is one of the best, with great service and friendly stuff. We have been so many times that we sometimes get free mango lassi. Highly recommended!

Around CHF 25 for food and drinks if you eat in and around CHF 18 if you take-away. I would say take-away as the place is crowded at lunchtime.

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.
