Recently visited this restaurant, the service was poor we had to ask to order! And then chase our order over 1 hr we waited for our first course. Not cheap and think my expectations had been set to high unfortunatley.

We are in danger of going to this restaurant every time we come to Yorkshire! Our third time now and the food gets better and better. It's a great reminder of our Vietnam and Cambodia trip last year. Highly recommended and the young staff are very polite and friendly. We look forward to our next trip up North!

The refurbished and extended restaurant looked fabulous, the service was enthusiastic and the good was to die for. We had a taste explosion as dish after dish delivered excellence. Everyone was happy but as someone who needs a Dairy Free diet I was thrilled to see that 90% of the menu was dairy free (and gluten free for those that... More

My first time ever in a Vietnamese restaurant and as I am not a great lover of Eastern food I was pretty conservative in my choice. I had some chicken which is safe with stir fry veg and it was fine even for someone who normally likes his veg very well done. I haven't used chopsticks for 20 years and... More

really enjoyed the food, service and the atmosphere. The restaurant's recent revamp has worked well. There knowledge of special dietary requirement was good and they were able to offer a wide range of gluten free dishes.

We went to Bistro Saigon on Saturday 23rd August and the food was excellent along with the service. The wine was reasonably priced for a restaurant and chilled perfectly. This was our first but certainly not our last visit. I particularly liked the fact that if you had not had a certain dish before then the best way to tackle... More

I've been here several times for dinner, and I'd go again. The food is first class - wonderful, intense, sublime flavours emerge from each dish. The service is fine, pleasant but not first class. The atmosphere is similar - very pleasant, but a bit bright and harsh. The wine choice is adequate, but if you're looking for something rather special,... More

As it was my birthday, a meal out was on the cards and the choice was mine. I have wanted to try Vietnamese food since watching the Hairy Bikers Oriental series and now I have, I can't wait to try more. We started with the mixed platter of starters which included fried spring rolls, pork and vegetable dumplings, prawn toasts,... More

My wife and I decided to eat out in Ilkley this evening after finding ourselves child free due to school holiday arrangements, we set of planning to go to one of the restaurants we'd been to before, but a last minute deviation brought us to Bistro Saigon. The decor is fine, clean crisp, contemporary (but not tacky) and not trying... More
