5 out of 5

Wherever possible, I like to book apartments and hotels that are located near vegan restaurants. Food is always my number one priority when travelling. I recently stayed in an Airbnb that was pretty much opposite Zeroism and I must say, it was the best decision.

Throughout the month, I spent every single day at Zeroism. There was just so much to love about the place. I appreciated their ethos and vegan ethics, which were displayed clearly across their menu, and I found the staff to be on a whole other level of Vietnamese hospitality. Plus the menu was varied and the food and drinks were delicious.

This restaurant is a must-visit and alongside Kashew Cheese, it is one of my favourite vegan food spots in Saigon. Read my full and honest Zeroism review to find out why!

My experience

Having eaten at Zeroism for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, more times than I can count, I am now going to share my experience of their food, the drinks and the service.

The food

I enjoyed all of the food that I tried at Zeroism. There wasn’t one thing that I thought could be improved or removed from the menu. Although I must admit, I didn’t eat absolutely every single item off the menu. But I did have a good go at it!

My absolute favourite dish of theirs is their Pad Thai. It has a great tangy fermented flavour to it which I guess they have achieved by using a vegan fish sauce. It was way better than any vegan Pad Thai that I’ve tried in Thailand!

Their french toast with ice cream is what dreams are made of. I wish I could eat this every day, but my waistline wouldn’t be so happy. But that’s fine because they also have plenty of healthier dishes that are equally tasty, like their peanut overnight oats and their noodle dishes.

Not to mention their desserts. I’m seriously impressed by their vegan cheesecake and was close to shaking one of them down for the recipe.

There is a good variety of dishes on their menu that if you came here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’d be eating something completely different each time. I thoroughly enjoyed making my way through their menu, and I hope you do too!

The drinks

You’ll find a variety of drinks on Zeroism’s menu, including coffees, teas, and soft drinks. I personally really enjoyed their phin coffee and their dalgona was delicious, although is best left for special occasions.

On really hot days I recommend drinking one of their salted lemonades. They are so refreshing! Oh, and they keep you topped up with iced filtered water throughout your time in the restaurant.

The only downside is that the oat milk is an extra cost on top which can add up if you like having an oat milk coffee once or twice a day!

The service

The food and drinks are great, but the service is what truly makes Zeroism so great. All of the staff who work here are friendly and super attentive. After just a few visits they’ll start to chat with you and greet you by your name. You get the feeling that you are part of a special club!

The staff all speak excellent English and always appear to enjoy chatting with you. It is a pleasure turning up at the restaurant and being welcomed in by them all.

The food always comes out relatively quickly and the table service is efficient. All of which makes it a great venue for a special date night dinner or a meet-up with friends. Although, throughout the day, it also works perfectly as a remote working spot. I spent a lot of time working here throughout the day and the staff were extremely attentive.

The ambience

The space is beautifully decorated and has a few different areas where you can sit, each has its own vibe. The front patio area is great for more casual dining. With the fans, it makes for a nice spot to enjoy your morning coffee. Inside, you’ll find tables that are suitable for working or for eating a quick lunch. Upstairs is a little more fancy, and feels well suited to a nice dinner event.

The space feels natural and calming. Along with the great service, it makes for a really relaxed place to hang out. The only thing I would have changed is the Christmas playlist they had on repeat throughout December. But that only bugged me because I practically lived at Zeroism!
