Saigon offers possibly the best Vietnamese food in the country. The original restaurant in the 16th district near Brunnenmarkt was the first authentic Vietnamese in town. With the novelty factor and its quirky interiors, it was an immediate sensation.
All the dishes are very flavorful, not least because the fresh herbs are imported daily. Try the fresh Vietnamese rolls with rice paper wrapped around rice vermicelli and shrimps. It’s the Thai basil and coriander that deliver the punch. And the famous noodles soups reek of fresh lemon grass like they should.
Go to the expansive restaurant on Getreidemarkt when you want to avoid the crowds in the cramped restaurants on the Naschmarkt.
