I've been to Ho Chi Minh City and had several bowls of authentic Saigon Pho at Phõ Hoà Pasteur. The phõ they serve here is as close in taste and authenticity as the ones I had in Saigon. It's really, really good. I had the phõ with raw sliced beef, tripe, beef balls, and brisket. The broth is rich, and... More

Would be very wise to get reservation . Very close to Vietnam taste especially the papaya salad. You wouldn't know that you've passed the place many times. Must go eat there. The Saigon beer is a must. Choose well. Ask the server of the best dishes you will not be disappointed. Cheersdom. D

We went there on a Monday night and were seated immediately, really lovely staff who spoke English well. The food was served really quickly, we ordered the fried chicken and vegetarian spring rolls, caramel chicken and lemongrass curry. All of it tasted amazing, I'd definitely recommend visiting while in Amsterdam!

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.

Food is great and lots of wonderful choices. So authentic, especially the Pho Bo. The meat is fresh everyday, the vegetables as well and crunchy. 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
