Central location, quite practical after a walk downtown Zurich. The restaurant is arranged in a simple but nice way - perhaps tables are a bit small and tight, and get crowded quite soon. The menu is relatively broad and looks typical and appealing. After some typical starters, we tried a soup and a beef chop suei: both standard (in terms... More

I was there about at 7pm and it was really full, so if you are more than two persons i would make a reservation beforehand. Seems to be really popular. Food did come really fast and the Pho soup was really good! Portion is huge, so you do not have to leave hungry. Staff was friendly and helpfull.

Horrible! Much too salty. I tought, i would get used to the large amount of salt/soy, so i hung in there and ate a couple of spoons (no knifes there if course). But then i had to give up and called the waitress. No other meal was offered. So I paid and left. Bad service, absolutely not friendly

I liked my soup noodle (Chef's special). The portion is quite large, in fact none of us including 2 grown-up men couldn't finish their meal. But i think this place is slightly over priced. During dinner time, the service is very slow. The variety of the menu is more towards fast/simple dinner. There are no elaborated dishes. I wouldn't have... More

Lots of variety and everything is fresh and tasty! Saigon can be quite busy at lunch time and most popular restaurants tend to be. Offered are pre-cooked specialities where you choose 2 entrees with rice, or you can go a la carte. Recommendations include the child beef salad, marinated pork on fried rice, and beef sweets with lemon grass and... More

I am here often. Food quality never disappointed. Que up and have them arrange a plate for you from their lunch buffet. This is fast and tasty. You choose two main courses and they are quite flexible with special instructions. Alternatively order from their menu, your plate will be served within 15minutes or faster. Tables are often shared.

Went to Baradox for a few beers and the round the corner to Saigon for tasty veggie food. Its quick, uncomplicated good value and makes a change from Italian.

We visited as a group of four curios to try out this Vietnamese place as it's usually always relatively full. The interior wasn't special but the food they prepare there really makes up for it. I can especially recommend the pho soup! However, this place should really work on its service, staff was at times not really attentive and would... More

We had the traditional Pho with beef. I first was sceptical and thought it wouldn't taste good also regarding the price (sth about 23 chf)...BUT we were not disappointed. It surprisingly tasted authentic and very good. Still not the same as pho in Vietnam but very close. Thank you.
