Nice and cozy plaze. Staff and serving is good and swift.
Had a vegetarian duck dish which was awesome... Taste very close to the real thing. Plenty of food. Also had some veggie egg rolls which hit the spot ! :) Definitely worth a visit !

Pros: Nice staff, quick serving, fair price

Popular, pricey, but good

I had a good meal. I wasn't full when I left, but I enjoyed the food. The staff understood the concept of veganism very well and explained clearly which dish wasn't vegan and why not. The veg-pork was quite good. I had some fried noodles and veggies and the taste was nicely balanced. Not exquisite, but for the price of the food I had no complaints. The price of the drinks however was quite high. A Saigon beer would go for as much as 4,50 which strikes me as a bit steep, but I don't know much about special beers, so maybe that's normal... I would certainly recommend this to any vegan or vegetarian looking for something in Utrecht.

Saigon heeft een aparte vegetarische menukaart dus ruim voldoende keuze. Eten is lekker maar niet bijzonder. Personeel is vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Pros: Ruime keuze, Goede sfeer

They have delicious vegan options. It can be quite crowded, and service might take some time then.

Pros: Vegan-friendly, Good portions
Cons: Can be crowded

One of my favourites

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.

Pros: A lot of options, friendly service
Cons: Language can be a problem
