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!

I am three times the average age of the usual clientèle. It is very like a student canteen, but with excellent service and a wide choice of menu. However, though listed by TripAdvisor under the 'vegetarian' rubric, it has only one vegetarian dish (as much as one can hope for in France). However, it was a really 'buzzy' place to... More

Most of the meals have exactly the same price - 10.80€ and for that you get a filling portion. One of us had the tom yum soup which was full of big tasty shrimps, different veggies and the perfect balance between different spices. The other had a fish dish where the fish was seasoned with spices neither of us had... More

Handily placed in the centre of Bordeaux, I often drop by to pick up some nasi goreng to fill me up on a night out. Really delicious and quick service
