Our first venture into Vietnamese and very impressed. The bistro is busy but relaxed with good friendly service. Our mixed platter starters were excellent and nicely presented. Mains of duck and prawns equally so. For those unfamiliar with Vietnamese cooking, we found it similar to Thai but slightly more savoury. Not particularly expensive considering it is in Ilkley. Would easily... More

Excellent food and a nice place. However the service was poor, most of the staff seemed uninterested, they weren't attentive and barley smiled.

We have often eaten at the Bistro Saigon. It is very friendly, casual, no airs and graces, but the food is superb.

This was my first visit here and I'd heard lots of great things about it. I wasn't disappointed. My partner and I can be quite fussy though there were a few dishes I'd have been happy with. I had the seabass which was delicious. The highlight of the meal for me was my pudding. I got the chocolate sphere. I... More

We popped in at the weekend to the Bistro Saigon in Ilkley and ordered three starters; squid, rib and chicken. All were really tasty and generously proportioned without being overly large. Even the garnishes were prepared with care and not an afterthought as is often the case. A classy and unfussy environment in which to enjoy good food. Enthusiastically endorsed.

We keep returning to this restaurant time after time. The food is so fresh and tantalisingly tasty that your taste buds are subjected to the most wonderful experience.
