“TEN STAR EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Saigon and More is a cozy little Vietnamese restaurant a few blocks from the hotel. The food is absolutely phenomenal. The service is the best. The owner is a friendly man from Turkey who has two Vietnamese chefs to cook the authentic meals. He is super friendly and warm. He spent so much time sitting at our table chatting with us and making us laugh. I have never had this type of service before. He made our experience so pleasant. I would rate the service TEN stars if I could!

For appetizers, I love the rice paper rolls with basil, mint, rice noodles, eggs, carrots, sprouts and prawns. They were served with a warm and spicy peanut sauce, which was fresh and tasty. I also love the fried spring rolls with glass noodles, chicken, mushrooms and vegetables. Both of these rolls are unique and flavorful.

For dinner, my favorite dish is the Com chien - roasted rice. This is served with chicken, egg, Chinese cabbage, broccoli, sprouts, mint, and chives with a traditional Vietnamese sauce. This dish is filled with so many different flavors. It is one of the most unique dishes I have ever had.

The Bun bo xao xa - chicken on rice noodles is good too if you like noodles. The chicken is marinated with lemon grass and red curry and served on rice noodles, fresh salad and sprouts. It is seasoned with Nuoc mam sauce as well as roasted peanuts, onions, basil and mint.

Overall, I would rate the restaurant ten star if it was possible. I had an absolutely superb experience at Saigon and more!

“good, but over rated.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The first courses were excellent. Recommended to take the combination. The main courses were ok, nothing too special. We gave up desserts because there was nothing interesting. The owner is really nice, but we had to get up and ask for dessert menu after we finished. Overall - a nice restaurant if you're in the area.

“Wonderful food and great service...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner the last night of our weekend in Berlin at this restaurant. The food was amazing, the service was great, and it was filled with locals. I would definitely recommend a reservation because it is a very popular place. We will definitely return to the restaurant the next time we are in Berlin.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Ate here on the first night of our Berlin trip after searching on TA for restaurants to try & glad we did. It was about a 10 minute walk from our hotel, but easy to find.

We didn't book a table, but did get there for just after 6.30pm on a Wednesday & were seated straight away. The owner was lovely, came over to talk to us & made us feel very welcome.

Food was fab! We shared a starter platter - crispy spring rolls were so good, we could have eaten lots of them & the dipping sauce I had was so tasty! Mains were crispy duck & rice & my husband had the chicken curry rice dish. Both were huge, so definitely make sure you go there hungry. Watch out for the red sauce with the starter platter if you don't like really spicy things, it's hot :)

Great value for money - 1 shared starter platter, 2 large mains & 2 drinks came to less than 40 euros for both of us.

Would definitely come back again!

“Delicately flavored Vietnamese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Coming from San Francisco, and having visited Hanoi and Hoi An, we were impressed with the delicately flavored dishes here.
The restaurant has a modern look. The kitchen is visible from the restaurant and is very clean and well organized.
The owner, Ertugrul is very entertaining and speaks English, German, and Spanish.
