My friends who live in Amsterdam were very keen to take us to this vietnamese that they had visited many times previously. Service on drinks was very slow. Our drinks didn't arrive until after our food did. The waiter asked if we wanted all our food served together at the same time to which we said yes. Our food arrived... More

I have eaten in many Vietnamese restaurants and this has been definitely the worst. We ordered and we got the food after 2 minutes! It was partially cold and the quality poor. The bill was ok, quite cheap to be next to Leidseplein!

Pho Soups are great but also the spring rolls are delicious. Drinks take the homemade lemongrass ice tea

We wanted to get in the Mexican nearby but it was full so we ate here. They told us we had to order within 10 minutes because they were closing. The food was fine but the service was a bit random. All the staff were sat around a table eating their food at the end of the night and I... More

I have been here a couple of times, before and after my trip to Vietnam. The food is definitely good and you can find some typical Vietnamese food that you cannot find in any other place in Amsterdam. The service is decent and the location (really close to Leidseplein) it's just perfect.

We are not that familiar with Vietnamese food but are Thai food addicts - so tried out Saigon Cafe. The restaurant is very well appointed with friendly young staff - with tables afording overviews of the busy street - so first impressions were excellent. Toilets were sparklingly clean. Starters of goi cuon tom thit heo and goi cuon ga nuong... More

I recently ate here with my partner and having dined in overpriced Dutch restaurants before I was pleasantly surprised at the amount and quality of food here. The beef in lemongrass was beautiful! The staff was very professional and friendly too.
