First Review by KelseyD

We got there at last - Edit

I was impressed with this place. It's very modern and super professional. After years of trying we eventually got here at the right time. It's only open during the week for lunch. We enjoyed a good tasting selection of tofu and seitan dishes and some wine. The food is really good and very nicely priced. I think we paid €9 for a plate of one of the dishes of the day or you could mix all 3 for pretty much the same price. It's not central but definitely worth visiting.

Pros: good food , modern , friendly staff

Cons: bit out of the city

Delicious, tasty food, and top-notch service! - Edit

I was in Lisbon for a conference and was thrilled to discover that there was a vegan restaurant within walking distance from my hotel at the Oriente metro stop. To find the restaurant, just walk to street behind the Vasco da Gama mall and turn right with the mall behind you. Follow the road past the construction and when you see a little "park" on the right side of the road, cross over and follow it up to find the restaurant.

The menu varies daily, thanks to which I never had to eat the same thing twice, even eating there every day for lunch and taking away a meal for dinner. They learned my name the second day I was there - nothing makes you feel at home like being greeted with a smile and your name when you walk in the door.

If you're in Lisbon and you're a vegan or just veggie-curious, do yourself a big favor and head on over to Miss Saigon to enjoy a wonderful meal in a warm and friendly environment. No matter what you order, you won't go wrong here.

Food is nice but very expensive - Edit

I like Miss Saigon....the food is good, you know? There are enough vegan options, although, it is a bit limited. The presentations of the dishes is also nice. Staff is ok. The place is small but well decorated. The dessert was one of the best vegan desserts I've ever had (apple strudel). But the price...oh my...way too expensive for what you're having. I had a main dish (tofu with rice, wich was a bit dry and not marinated), natural juice (pulp mixed with water, so poor taste), dessert and coffee. Paid 16€...this is expensive for Lisbon. And I was still a bit hungry in the end.

Pros: Tasty vegan food, Well located

Cons: Small portions, Very expensive, Doesn't serve dinners

best Vegan restaurant in Lisbon - Edit

This place is amazing I recommend booking a reservation since it's only open from 12 to 4 pm but it is 1000% worth it, best food experience in my entire trip to Lisbon and it is ultra healthy and chic. Loved Miss Saigon.

Absolutely delicious - Edit

Went here for a weekday lunch and am really glad I booked! Had a freshly squeezed orange juice and the taster platter of soy meatballs with batatas bravas, tofu moqueca and beans and vegan sausage with rosemary, served with rice and a salad. All of the food was extremely tasty, so I decided I'd better have a dessert, too. The lemon posset with biscuit, blueberries and raspberries was super citrus-y and absolutely divine. Loved it and would definitely love to go back.

Pros: Delicious, Delicious, Delicious

Cons: Need to reserve, Small space, But expensive

Really good quality food - Edit

I really enjoyed my experience in this restaurant. It is located not right in the center of the city, but in a lovely place close to the Expo area.
The meal is beautifully displayed and you can sense every bit of taste in each bite.
I would definitely recommend this place and will definitely come back to try some of the other dishes.

Pros: Location, Quality of ingredients

Great meal - Edit

I had a hard time finding the restaurant in the Parque das Nações, and by the time we arrived a couple of minutes after the opening at noon, there was only one table left. So, make sure you reserve.

We both took the meal that included the three daily dishes and everything was excellent. I absolutely loved the little bun stuffed with spinach and potatoes.

I also had a scone to go and it was delish.

My mom, who is not veg, kept on raving about the food, even two weeks later.

Pros: Fresh food, Nice vibe, Friendly staff

Cons: Reservations recommended

Ho Chi Minh City - Edit

I wonder how many people in this vast city are vegan. Miss Saigon went completely vegan in the summer of 2016. After 6 visits to Lisbon since 2010 we've always clashed with Miss Saigon's 2 week summer holidays in late August / early September. This amateur mistake will never be made again. Set in a beautiful modern building at the Parque das Nações by the river the location is quite stunning. Best way to get there from the city is probably Metro to Orient or Moscavide then walk. The menu changes daily. For €8.90 you can try all three dishes with salad. Today it was a seitan and mushroom stroganoff, sautéed tofu with lemongrass and Grechsnki soybean with buckwheat. They were all brilliant. The pumpkin soup to start destroyed any pumpkin soup I've ever had in the past. A glass of beautifully presented white wine and a bottle of sparkling water also accompanied the soups and main courses. For two people the bill came to a quite glorious €33. Try and do that in London in an exclusive vegetarian establishment. Let me know if you succeed!! By the way, we have an instant 5 Happy Cow rated establishing here. I love it when this happens.

Best veg restaurant anywhere - Edit

Sure it's out of the way, but I planned a whole day around arriving there for lunch.
Take the Metro to Oriente, take the sky lift to the Oceanario... There are 3 set choices each day, and I was lucky to be there when all 3 were vegan. you can order a Combo plate that gives you a little of each. They try to make a veg. version of famous international dishes. Success! Whatever it was, it was tasty and creative. Service was friendly and fast. They had some sugar-free cookies, so I got some to go. I wish I could go back and try more of their dishes.

Pros: Delicious and inventive, International menu, many vegan items

One of the best ever! - Edit

One of the best vegan meals I had in a while. They are not strict vegan, but just mention you're vegan and go for the mix 3 dishes. I would also go for the mix deserts. They have amazing vegan deserts and you should try them all!

Amazing Food - Edit

This is probably up there on my list of favourite veggie restaurants of all time. The food was incredible and I love their extensive menu, even if there are only three dishes a day. The menu alternates between having two vegan options, one vegetarian or all three vegan. Unfortunately, I came on a day when one of the dishes was vegetarian so I couldn't have all three, which is a popular thing to do here, but I did like the dish I ordered and the dessert was amazing too.

The only thing I'd suggest is make your whole menu vegan guys! Your vegan food was amazing and you really don't need to have non-vegan options to compete.

Edit: I'd also recommend checking the website to see what the menu is for the day you're thinking about going to check if all the options are vegan and if you'll like everything.

Pros: delicious food, friendly staff

Cons: far away from central lisbon

BEST VEGGIE RESTAURANT IN LISBON - Edit

This is by far the best place to eat vegetarian/ vegan food in Lisbon! I'ts AMAZING!

I went there last year, on Valentine's day and it was a wonderful experience. The food is truly exquisite! I believe that what makes this place stand out is indeed the quality of the food, its presentation as well and the fact that they offer us typical meals from several countries, so the variety is superb!

We tried a combination of three plates, the ones that were suggested on that day. Because they all seemed so good, we tried all three and OMG, they were so good! So simple and yet elaborated....gourmet style!

It's a bit pricey for me, but totally worth it! I wish I could visit more often, but as I said, it is a little expensive. Still, I think tourists will find it normal/ moderate and totally worth the price. And we mustn’t forget that it is located in Parque das Nações, a more expensive area, so it's understandable! And after lunch ( it only serves lunches) there's a lot to visit in Parque das Nações!

I will surely visit it again soon!

Pros: Excellent Food, Friendly Staff, Nice Vibe

Cons: A little expensive, Only serves lunches :(

Excelente - Edit

Considero o melhor restaurante vegetariano de Lisboa. Os pratos são excelentes e criativos, sempre com opções veganas bem identificadas. O cuidado e a simpatia dos proprietários e funcionários também é excelente. O espaço é pequeno, mas foi bem aproveitado. O preço é um pouco acima da média e infelizmente não servem jantares.

My favourite in Lisbon, mostly vegan - Edit

I live in Lisbon. This is my favourite vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Lisbon. Most dishes are acutally vegan.

For about 9 eur you can have a combination of 3 dishes from around the World and a dark green salad. For about 8 eur you can pick to of the dishes. You can visit the restaurants web site and see the menu for the whole week, so you can check what might interest you more.
My personal favourite is the portuguese "alho frances a bras". Chef Claudia Salu is simply brilliant.

Strongly recommend getting to know this place. Also a great place to visit for non-vegetarians/vegans, because they accept it well.

Pros: Amazing taste from around the world, Mostly vegan and organic

Cons: Small space, don't arrive late , Location is not the easiest for me

Lovely place to eat - Edit

The range of food on offer is limited (as they don't like waste) but the food is delicious and most of it vegan or with a vegan option. Opening hours are limited. Staff are friendly and informative and speak English. The seating was SLIGHTLY Spartan so you might not want to linger for very long.The place looks lovely. Inexpensive.

Pros: The quality and quantity of the food, Friendly staff, Attractively designed restaurant.

Cons: Opening hours limited

Above my expectations - Edit

I went to Miss Saigon today for the first time. I had been curious about it as the reviews on this page are very positive. However, when I have high expectations I sometimes end up disappointed because it ends up not being quite what I had expected. Definitely NOT the case here! I can only say that Miss Saigon was actually even better than I had expected. The food is simply divine, delicious and substantial (I had a plate of the three main dishes combined with salad, mango and apple juice and chocolate cake with strawberries), the staff is very friendly and willing to spend a few minutes with the customer to explain about the different ingredients and the space is very relaxing and nice to be in. The place is a bit small, though, but I still rate Miss Saigon with 5 cows. :)

Pros: Really delicious food, Friendly and helpful staff, Good environment

Cons: The space a bit too small
