This restaurant is busy because it's GREAT. Reasonable prices, busy (although seated quickly), quick service (yes, even in France!), large portions, and variety. The soup was a phenomenal meal. I went to dinner here with a friend who lives in Bordeaux and he chose the restaurant. Great choice.

The menu isn’t extensive, around 12 or so main dishes. The spicy ones are marked which is helpful. Main courses are almost all 10 euros 80. There seemed to be only one dessert on offer. They brought complimentary tap water (in their own printed bottles) and glasses (one was chipped) to the table. We sat inside; there was a bit... More

This place had great food and the best service in town. Very hip feeling, be carful not to go south of here as there is a rougher neighborhood a few streets over around St Michael's basilica.

There are large quantity of oriental dishes with specialities of indonesian and thai food. I ate Nasi goreng. The dish was good but I ate better Nasi goreng in other restaurants. Quantities are ok. Prices are competitive. Interesting place to eat some different flavours.

First time around I ordered something I don't very well remember. However my second and third time there I ordered the "boeuf" dish (beef). Order it then thank me later.

I know the world is big but... Santosha was the best Thai food I've ever had. The service is very friendly and the food is absolutely delicious. The decor is trendy, and make sure you go downstairs to the restroom - there is a really cool lounge there! Their house wine (like any house wine is Bordeaux) pairs perfectly with... More

The place is bare-bones in all aspects: the decor, the menu, the service. But that doesn't mean it's not good, in fact it's quite the opposite. Most of all, the food is good. The relatively limited menu allows for fast-food-alike responsiveness; the waiters are quick and effective, and last but not least the prices are well below the average Bordeaux... More

This canteen-style restaurant is a cool hangout for Asian food fusion-style amateurs, mixing Thai, Indonesian et Al.... Food is tasty, not spicy enough for me (but that is France after all), and the terrace is worth a try to elegantly start an evening out with friends... Unfortunately no bookings, so get there on time, or you may wait longer than... More

For 10 or 11 eleven euros you'll leave with a full stomach. The food is not the most sophisticated, but it's delicious. The service can be really hit and miss...think "French snobby". Granted, they're tremendously busy. Quite a student hang out. Central, great outside seating when the weather is nice on the beautiful, refurbished 'Place Fernand Lafargue'. Pro-tip: they serve...

We accidentally lost our way when wondering around Bordeaux and ended up in this restaurant. Five of us each took another dish and everyone of them was excellent. Try the ice cream and sorbets, they were amazing! For all of us the best Asian restaurant ever tried in France!
