Very nice Vietnamese steam rice cake Banh Cuon. We normally end up ordering one round more. Delicious. The ladies are especially friendly. We always enjoy our dinings out there.

Went there for dinner after great vacation in Vietnam. The food was really good and the tase was real. They didn't offer all the diliciouse sauces as you get in vietnam for every dish, that made the dinner not as intense as we where used to but it is definately recommendable. I mean real saigon beer, deal!

Whenever we pass through Basel, we always try to stop at Saigon Moon for some Vietnamese food. The dishes are authentic and the service is always friendly. Their Bun Rieu, Bun Bo Hue and Pho are excellent. There are also high chairs available for young children, something which we appreciate as we have two toddlers.

I'm used to order and take away from this restaurant for the last 4 years... And i was surprise after a couple of months without order that now is nothing compared with what it was before. The spring roles where now fried and burned. The rice and noodles we ordered was dry and tasteless. When we order in the phone,... More

Vietnam restaurant, nice decoration, friendly service, many choice of typical Vietnamese dish, duck with Peking sauce is very tasty, good amount as well, also offer Thai curry choice, the spring roll is also very good. 提供很多越南经典菜肴,也有泰国咖喱饭,北京酱味的烤鸭做得好,又嫩又脆。非油炸春卷很好吃,但是虾片不是免费的。价格是瑞士经典价位,中规中矩。我们五人吃得还是挺满意的。

In term of south east Asian food... More

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
