My husband and I visited Bistro Saigon for our wedding anniversary as we had been to Cambodia & Vietnam for our honeymoon and loved the food out there. We found the staff friendly, welcoming and professional. The food was excellent with awesome flavours. The only disappointment was the Twinnings green tea served after meal. We raised this with our waitress... More

The food and prices are excellent, Staff welcoming and friendly. They don't hover allowing you to talk with your friends. The food is a good variety, freshly prepared with fresh herbs, we recommend the spring roll salad. We have never tried dessert as we are always too frull after starters and mains.

We managed to get a table but witnessed many people on a Tuesday night get turned away. The food was very good and service was also good. The prices and quality of food were as we expected - reasonable

This is the first time we have returned to Bistro Saigon since the refurbishment. The decor has changed, sadly not for the better. The Bistro is now made up of brown wipeable tables lined up the length of the wall opposite a glitzy bar over which three red celing lamps overhang. The overall look is more like a cheap cafe...

Went for a late lunch here and we had the 2 courses for under 13 pounds each . The food was terrific both courses with great flavors. Very enjoyable! Ordered 2 glasses of wine each which cost more than the meals itself. Great service and very clean. Would go back for sure and would recommend to others.

Having had dinner twice in the last week, I feel compelled to make a rare trip to Trip Advisor to compliment the food, the service and the staff on what is a fabulous place to eat. Last night went to celebrate my daughters graduation and 3 generations of family loved it. Particular mention to the smiling, happy staff and the... More

Arrived just after 2.00pm for lunch but didn't know it closed at 2.00pm. Staff were very helpful and asked the chef if we could be served.YES came the reply. It was worth every penny. We were wondering if the food could live up to the standard of what we experienced in Vietnam and we were not disappointed. The food was... More

I was so disappointed having visited bistro Saigon. I ordered the five spice duck. I don't think it even had one spice in it it was just totally dry floating in a small amount of soy sauce!! It wasn't filling either to say I was robbed of £15, then ordered some rice. They then brought the wrong rice and I... More
