Merely saying this restaurant is vegetarian friendly is selling them short; this place offers a full range of vegetarian dishes, not just two or three options. It is the only restaurant in Utrecht that offers us as many choices as meat-eaters would have in other restaurants.
Emphasis is on 'mock meat': vegetarian 'duck', vegetarian 'pork' etc. although there are also tofu-based dishes. There is an explanation on the menu about how these mock meats are made and what they contain.
Saigon is well known in the Vietnamese community in Holland, it is very common to see Vietnamese families dining here. They obviously have a good name to keep up, and you can taste the effort they put into this. Do ask for the springrolls you can roll yourselves, they are tasty, fun, and come with an enormous bunch of letuce and herbs.
Service is always friendly, although language can sometimes be a problem, not all the staff speak Dutch. Most of them do speak English to some degree.
Saigon also has a back door, where you can order take-away food.
A lot of options, friendly service
Language can be a problem
