A party of us went to this restaurant recently and experienced a superb evening of food .The starters were delicious and full of authentic flavors and the mains delivered the same experiance. The lady owner and her staff were on hand freindley and attentive making the whole evening a pleasure . definitely one to recommend.

We called in without booking at 6 pm on a Sunday and were given a very warm welcome, excellent service and delicious food! The refurbishment is delightful and conducive to a great dining experience! Bravo! I must remember to say no coriander though next time! That's my fault not theirs!! 😖

We went here to celebrate our daughters birthday. It was a Monday evening and the restaurant was about half full. It only has about 10 tables, therefore it is nice and cosy. The staff were very helpful and the meal we had was outstanding. We had the mixed platter starter which is an excellent idea as you can try allsorts,... More

Fantastic food in a delightful restaurant. Very helpful staff who organised our meal as we were in a hurry to get to an event. The flavours were fantastic and one of the best bowls of soup I've ever tasted.

Well the review says October but it was actually 1st November. We booked for 4 of us and were shown to a table downstairs. I didn't even know they had a downstairs. We didn't really fancy the table with it being next to a speaker so we asked for another one. We ended up on the ground floor by the... More

Bistro Saigon had a makeover. Gone is the slightly seedy black and red decor to be replaced by fresh lime and brown colour scheme, with bamboo shoots. The new toilets are a vast improvement too. Not sure about the conversion of the downstairs store room into a dining space - we felt rather forgotten when we dined in that area,... More

The restaurant is beautiful and the staff are really accomodating, especially when there are so many delicious things on the menu that you can't make up your mind. We chose the shared starters which were yummy, especially the sticky ribs. I had the sea bass as a main course and my husband had chilli beef both of which were scrumptious.... More

The food is always great at Bistro Saigon, its possibly the best restaurant in the area. However something really concerns me, whenever we are in the last few groups still in the restaurant and get the bill we are told the card machine isn't working would we mind going and getting some cash from the ATM. Its actually a standing... More

Thank you for your review, I am glad you enjoyed the food. We are sorry about the inconvenience re the card payment machine. We are aware of the problem and this last weekend we made sure all customers were advised the machine was not working on arrival. Sadly we are tied into a contract with the machine provider and despite... More

There are ten of us, friends for many years, who get together in various locations twice a year. They leave the choice of restaurant in my hands, mainly because I haven't let them down, yet! No pressure then. One of the things I have to bear in mind is that one of our number can't take too much by way... More
