This Saigon is the deluxe version of Little Saigon in Chinatown. We ordered different phô and bún and shared everything. Then we went to a concert nearby. Great start of the evening.

So so mixed beef pho. Tasted better ones than this. Soup was not rich enough. Beef slices was decent. Somehow something is missing.

The Lamb in Sweet Sauce and Soft Skin Spring Rolls is divine. This is a must restaurant that you should not give a miss. The price is reasonable and the happy hour cocktails delicious. Except...

As Asian restaurants go, this is one of the better ones in Amsterdam. The service though can be better and more professional but then it is a cafe. Try the pho and the spare ribs. Food meant to be shared.

I have tasted quite a lot of "Phở bò" in Amsterdam and Saigon Cafe has the best Phở in my opinion. It tastes nearly the same with the origin I had in Vietnam. This restaurant will be definitely worth your visit.

We decided to boycott this place because of the above reasons. In a city That is notorious for bad attitude service they seem to make a point of excelling in that department. Over my numerous visits to this place I have had quite some spats over this subjects. What really puts me off is that they do not want to... More

They have the best pho in town for sure. Been to other places, this one is the best. Ask for the avocado drink. It's off menu bit one of the best drinks you can get.

A lot of people rave on about Pho 91 but I prefer to eat at Saigon Café because the stock used in the pho is rich in flavor, portion sizes are generous and they offer a wider range of dishes. The menu has changed at lunch time recently so you do not have as much choice as in the evenings... More
