Had a lovely time at Bistro Siagon on Saturday evening. Mixed platter starter to share - really big, fresh flavours - favourites were papaya and beef salad.....and the sweet potato patties. Mains were also big on flavour and portion size. Ohhhh the dessert!! ❤️ 5 little pieces of yumminess, can't remember exactly what on the plate - but it was... More

Had a wonderful time at Bistro Saigon on Valentine's Day evening. The food was absolutely delicious as always and generous portions, the only downside was I didn't have enough room for pudding which looked amazing! The service was friendly and attentive. Would 100% recommend and will definitely be returning in the near future!

After going a couple of times and really enjoying it we went as a table of 8 for my husbands birthday. It did not disappoint. Food is freshly cooked and tastes fantastic, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Except one who asked for no coriander. But this was brilliantly and quickly rectified. Lovely friendly staff great food. This will definitely become... More

I never really leave reviews but felt I had to after visiting the restaurant last night! I had booked a birthday meal treat for my boyfriend and we had a lovely platter! All delicious but my favourite was the Seafood Soup - absolutely scrumptious! The main course was just as lovely and very filling!! No room for dessert but lovely... More

Don't know what planet the last reviewer was on but my wife and I have frequented this restaurant since it opened and it is quite simply fabulous. The food is totally authentic, the service friendly and the Singha and White wine just as cold as it should be. I haven't left a review before as I am selfish and would... More

My first time visit to Bistro Saigon on a quiet Monday evening in a work group. The food was good but nothing super special as indicated in other reviews. Admittedly we were in a big group but the food came out slowly and was a little cold, clearly that's why the likes of wagammas bring stuff out as it cones... More

Each time we go to this Resteraunt we think 'can it be as good as last time?' The answer seems to be that it's better!
