Highly recommended 👍

A very enjoyable place for a Vietnamese meal with also plenty of choice in dishes from Chinese & Thai cuisine. We 've been there on several occasions and have always been enchanted by it. This restaurant is now so popular that it's strongly recommended to book in advance.

We had lunch here on the spur of the moment and were delighted. The menu was interesting, the food tasted very fresh and well cooked, full of interesting flavours without being hot. it cost £29.75 for 2 of us

Although I had enjoyed a good meal here some months ago it was disappointing when we recently visited at lunchtime. The service was very slow with no apologies from a waitress who appeared disinterested. The restaurant was not busy. The food was poor. The fried spring rolls were greasy and overcooked. The main course pancake was ok but more like... More

Great little restaurant in the centre of town. Tasty, good value food in simple surroundings. Spicy but not too hot with friendly service. A little gem!

We have eaten at Bistro Saigon on several occasions, both for lunch and evening meals. The menu is extensive and excellent, the service superb and the food out of this world. The only possible criticism might be the decor and ambiance but this has mostly been addressed in the recent refurbishment and is probably as good as it could be.... More

Excellent food for all three courses and really good coffee, the staff were chaotic to start with but the whole restaurant seemed to fill up within five minutes, never the less it was a great evening saved by the fantastic food...

Second visit to this little gem which proved the first one wasn't a one off. Just out of this world. Different staff on last night and again superb service. I can't get over how good the food is. The spring rolls which you are advised to wrap with mint leaves, lettuce and dip into fish sauce are a taste sensation.... More

After living close by for a few years we thought it about time we sampled the new menu in the lovely refurbished surroundings and took 15 friends with us. We were all served simultaneously which is no mean feat for a large table and this was on a busy Saturday evening too. From the prawn crackers when we arrived to... More

This is our favourite Ilkley restaurant - we come here about twice a year because we like to keep it special! This time we were celebrating my husband's 40th birthday with friends on a busy Saturday night and, as usual, everything was perfect. The party of 8 ordered a variety of starters and mains (in fact, I think we all... More
