I've been here often, mostly to eat their delicious pho. Had bun on my most recent visit and have decided that I need to try more items on the menu. The interior is a bit brown for my tastes but I don't go there for the decor. Highly recommended!

A favourite for excellent pho on many visits here. Finally tried the bun with Vietnamese minced pork skewers - delish! Just go!

Fell in love with Vietnamese Cuisine thanks to Saigon café. Large variety of main course and starters. Perhaps can add more variety to desserts. Overall, a very pleasant experience

Food was good, but not as good as the Vietnamese from Houston or Vietnam. There are a few nice tables on the upper floor next to the windows for street views, would make for a good evening out.

Walking down the Leidsche Straat on a Saturday morning we were looking for something to eat. We had left early from home and did not have any breakfast. My wife and I both love Asian food and after our trip to Vietnam have been in love with Vietnamese Pho, the wonderful noodle soup with lots of fresh vegetables and meat,... More

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
