Kind of cuban, asian, african mix

The food is abundant for a low price. So consider just one main course for two if you are not hungry or dont really eat much. We were 3 people. The best one we tried was a meal with rice, seafood, and a scrambled eggs. the mixed rice with beef was just ok for me.

The service was poor. Not a warm welcome. The portion of the food was large but the taste was out of my expectation. Taste weird. Far from the original Asian taste.

Best thai I've found in Bordeaux so far. Papaya salad, pad thai and Tom Yum soup are delicious. Service is fast and smiley. Love this place.

I live in Bordeaux and I can honestly say Santosha is the best restaurant. The restaurant it's self is nothing fancy but the food is amazing. The portions are huge and the price is good (7,80€-12€). I recommend the caramelised chicken or the fish cooked in a banana leaf. All the young people go here so it's a cool place... More

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
