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

We only had two dishes but they were both very well cooked with bags of flavour. It gets pretty busy so do book. The atmosphere is nothing special, but the menu is interesting and not too expensive... If you are a goody you will enjoy this.

A group of 11 of us came on my Birthday meal. 5 of them hadn't eaten here before.Staff were very busy with another larger party as well (They seemed very pressured and a lack of service with a smile or perhaps just short staffed). We all ordered starters. Some were a little disappointed with quality, others were fine. We ordered... More

this is a hidden gem in Ilkley just off one of the main streets. After an excellent refrub the place is easier to book but still top quality. Food is amazing.

I was partially annoyed with the service charge that was added to our bill normally I... More

The food was amazing and very well priced but it just lacked atmosphere. Not sure if it was the lighting, decor or the music but it just fell a bit short in that department. It was a cullinary delight however and we will definitely go back.
