We were lucky with the timing, visited in the afternoon, so at a point the place was empty. This didn't allow the staff to have any more smile on their faces. Barely recognized us, when we wanted sg needed to go to them. However the menu has quite a wide range of different dishes and the pho soup was very... More

The food might be not too bad but service is rude and unbearably terrible. Need to learn how to be more polite while serving.

I must say: this was my first experience ever with Vietnamese food. So experts might disagree with me, but I liked the food there, and I enjoyed my evening with friends. The place is small, that's true, but we were a medium group and quite comfortable. I was told it is expensive for Vietnamese food, but for Zurich standard I... More

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.
