“Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine. Worth a visit!”
Saigon Green is an authentic Vietnamese restaurant in West Berlin. The food is awesome but the service is okay. After receiving five star service at Saigon and more, the service here cannot even begin to compare. They CHARGE you for TAP water. If you order more than one glass then they charge. I have never heard of this kind of nonsense before.
To start, we tried the following spring rolls
Autumn Rolls: Rice paper rolls with marinated beef, sesame salad, cucumbers, spring onions, rice noodles, and herbs
Lucky Rolls: Rice paper spring rolls with vegetables and plum chili noodles. These rolls are fried. I wish the description clearly stated this but they were still tasty.
We tried the following Pho soups:
Pho Bo: rice noodles with beef in broth, ginger, and green lemon
Bun Mang: Vietnamese rice noodle soup with spicy bamboo, tofu, chili, and ginger
Sup Mien Ga: Glass noodle soup with chicken broth, vegetables, sesame oil, chives and ginger
Sup Wan Tan: Homemade spicy soup with vegetables, classic wontons stuffed with shrimp and chicken, snow peas and herbs
For salad supplements, we tried the following:
Goi Chay: Salad of fresh cabbage, tofu, red onions, celery, glass noodles, herbs and peanuts.
Goi Mekong: Flavored spicy glass noodles with shrimp, vegetables, peanuts, sesame seeds, and herbs.
I loved both sets of spring rolls. The Goi Mekong salad was the best. The shrimp was so fresh and the flavor was absolutely delightful. All four pho soups that we tried had their own unique and flavorful broths. The only one I did not like was the Bun Mang. The rice noodles in this soup were okay. I think the glass noodles in the Sup Mein Ga are much better. All of the dishes with glass noodles were phenomenal.
Overall, the food here is authentic and certainly worth a visit!
