So you might ask why anyone would want to eat Vietnamese cuisine while in Vienna? - simple. The Saigon Restaurant is right next to the Hotel Mercure Secession which, in Winter, is the best answer for great tasting food, in a warm setting that is conveniently located. During a 7-day stay, late in November, with an average temperature of 1-2... More

I have been coming to Saigon for almost a decade. I've lived in Austria twice for short periods of time and have travelled here several times beyond that. Every time I'm in Vienna I come to Saigon. I have never been disappointed. Tonight was no different. Excellent Vietnamese spring rolls with great condiments. A wonderfully flavorful Thai duck with basic.... More

Menu is in English and German. Staff were... More

Great Vietnamese food! Right next door to our hotel. So delicious, we ate there 2 nights in a row! We liked the outside tables and the wait staff was very friendly.

Having spent the last two weeks in Italy and Austria, we desperately wanted a different cuisine and a meal which came with lots of vegetables! Saigon was next door to our hotel so we thought we'd pop in and check it out seeing as it had the Tripadvisor sticker on the door. I am so glad we did - lovely... More

We loved the food and the friendly service so much, we visited multiple times. My companion is vegetarian and we'd encountered some problem finding a nice place to eat where he didn't have to resort to just a salad or falafel. Saigon offered many options for him and the staff was very god at recommending him dishes and wine. We... More

We run into this place after 3 weeks of German food. The menu was standard Chinese and Vietnamese, cooking was up to a minimum standard. Dishes were not great but acceptable.
