Good food. Try no. 25

The food is good and the atmosphere is very worm. Try the Saigon beer, it's very good. The prices are not really high

Love this place so much. I've always been a big fan of vietnamese foods and this place can even match the standards in vietnam. The beef pho is the best to die for and it is really a substantial, mountainous supply of meat. We stay in Amsterdam for 4 days and couldn't even bear one meal away from this place.... More

So, let me start by saying that my review may be a little biased because I'm considering the neighbourhood in my rating too. And thats because I'm not a fan of this area in Amsterdam at all. So, if you dont want to run into hoards of tourists and are looking for a cozy & warm place - this is... More

It was used to be my favorite restaurant. Yesterday, our group of 5 people visited this restaurant at 21:05. The waitress said to us 'we will close at 22:00. You have to finish by that time. If you can do that, you may come in.' What an arrogant statement! We wanted to have the empty table near the window which... More

Saigon is a wonderful place to eat in. We ordered two starters to share between the three of us which were delicious and then we thought we were full but NO we still had beef noodles to get as well as some more beef and some spring rolls to eat and we had pork and a lot of vegetables came... More

Always going here when back in my hometown. Usually with 3-6 friends and we order half the menu. The Vietnamese rolls (not the spring rolls) are the best and so are the lamb chops and the ribs. Good salads and steamed veggies (pak soi). We usually do not order the soups as the portions are so large there is no... More

Saigon Cafe erased my horrible experience from the other Vietnamese restaurant... We walked in, were greeted with friendly manner and given a nice table by the window. Food is delicious, it arrived fast, and tasted almost as authentic as i had in Sydney, Paris, or Ho Chi Minh City. Good service, will definitely go back for more.

We live in Germany and there are not many good options for Asian food where we live. Amsterdam has a lot! We've lived in Korea 4 years over the past decade and love the variety of different Asian cuisines. On a recommendation of a local, we went to Saigon Cafe. We were not disappointed! Everything tasted fresh and bold. Even... More

We visit this restaurant often. I really like the meal-time salads and have enjoyed many of the warm meals also. The starters are great, especially the summer rolls, and the food tastes very fresh and arrives at the table hot.

We enjoyed the Jan van Dam menu, which was just simply perfect! Especially the beef salade and the sate were perfectly prepared.
