We're regular guests in Saigon Moon. The restaurant itself is small and simple, nothing fancy here, but there is something nice and quaint about it, on the edge of a residential quarter with a small terrace . The hosts are incredibly friendly and the food is excellent. The prices are also quite fair.

I heard the place through recommendation. Drove there to try. There is nothing on the menu very special and the taste is not so special too. I have a decent quality meal though. The service was not professional but friendly. We paid quite a lot given the restaurant level, its inconvenient position and its service. It's a place we won't... More

Saigon Moon is a short walk from the Birmannsgasse tram stop on the #1 line, about 5 stops from the main railway station. Food was good to excellent, service good, decor not too fancy and pragmatic.

We went there for a birthday dinner, during the week. The restaurant is located in a small side road. The decor is functional and bright. Only discreet hints to Vietnam. Staff is very friendly and warm. We ordered our favourite soup. As starter we hade Nem (viet spring roll) Goi con (viet. sommer roll). As main our favorite soup PhoBo... More

It's the ambience and familiarity that grab you topped with a smile that greets you. You're followed by a sudden punch of ginger, lemongrass and all things nice. I have and continue to sample a good part of the menu, from the translucent spring rolls packed with greens and coriander to their take on the classic red curry fragranced with... More

This restaurant is just a two minute walk from my apartment and is one of my regulars for sit down or take - away meals. This is an authentic Asian run by very friendly staff and the food quality is just excellent! I have tried various items on the menu and have never been left disappointed. Food is always fresh,...

Nothing special about this restaurant. It is a normal restaurant with an average food. When we go to the restaurant, we want to have a taste experience, we want to taste something particular, a real kitchen that we cannot have somewhere else. If you are like us, I don't recommend you to go to Saigon Moon. If you go to... More

They seemed to have a bit of everything on the menu (Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese). All the food we had was very good and nice big portions although quite pricey considering the style or restaurant but I guess that is Basel! Was pretty full too when we were there on a Sat night.

Simply put, excellent and authentic vietnamese food. I had the prawn rolls and the beef pho. Both were excellent with very tasty sauces. The portions were perfect and I was so stuffed after finishing my meal.

We're regulars at this no-fuss family-run establishment because of the tasty array of dishes made fresh and prepared with care. The place isn't fancy but it's the perfect spot to share good Asian eats with a gaggle of friends in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
