If it sounds interesting to you, keep reading because I will list the best Mediterranean restaurant right here in Saigon for you.

Kebaby Restaurant

This is a German restaurant and they serve Kebabs and bowls with vegan options and vegetarian options. If you fancy a loaf of kebab with lambs or chicken and vegetables, this restaurant is meant for you.

However, if you have a new friend and you want to bring them somewhere to have friendly conversations, eating a kebab and drinking some beer may be all you need.
