I recently had a birthday in Berlin; not a common thing for someone from Australia who took a 22hr flight to get here. I wanted something nice but not expensive as we had 4 other countries to visit in Europe and Saigon Green was perfect!
I wanted Vietnamese food because I was born there and I am from a traditional Vietnamese family. The reason why I didn't go to the #2 ranking restaurant in Berlin which is also Vietnamese was because the review about the owner was over the top for me. I just wanted a quiet dinner with good food and atmosphere so I chose Saigon Green.
On to the review. When we arrived the place was packed. Like most busy Asian restaurants they try to seat as many ppl in as little space as possible so at the start we shared a table with another couple. But as space freed up we moved across and had our own table. The owner is a Vietnamese woman who was very accommodating. Knowing the food, ordering was easy but rest assured the menu has an English translation. So between the both of us my partner and I had 6 starters (costing 3.5euros each), he had a beer and I had a fruit mocktail and our bill came to 28euros. Wow. It was cheaper than expected. I will say that the starters are small but they are perfect tasting plates for 2 people. Had we been hungrier we would have added on a main or 2 more starters and being full (and he's a big eater!). I highly recommend the duck wrapped in pancake and pork buns. Yum!
Well worth it for the price; go there!
