First time visit with friends , and the food was excellent. You can tell the place has recently been refitted as everything looks new. Good service, authentic spiced Vietnamese food, and typically quite heathy if you choose the lighter items. It was very busy even on a week night so book in advance. We will definitely return. Excellent.

Visited as a group of 6 the restaurant has been refurbished and is excellent, the staff are very attentive and they even lent our table some reading glasses as we had forgotten ours. The starters were amazing and tasty and main courses were delicious. Excellent evening

A modern airy restaurant, food was delicious (lunchtime) and the staff very knowledgable about what to have and how to put the flavours together. Very reasonably priced too

We are Bistro Saigon stalwarts and our visits are into double figures with not a murmur of criticism. Sadly it was a bit disappointing on our first visit after the refurbishment. Great decor and layout now, it's strikes the right balance, tasteful, great use of space yet has atmosphere. The food was the problem. My chilli beef was tasteless, my... More

I hiked six miles today and was ready for dinner. We arrived at Bistro Saigon and they gave us a table without a reservation if we were willing to finish dinner in an hour. No problem for us. We ordered spring rolls, pork salad with lemongrass and the green curry with prawns. The spring rolls were chock full and perfectly... More

It's great to have the opportunity to try a different sort of Asian food, and Bistro Saigon is a great place to do it. Tasty food, plenty of variety, reasonable prices and great service. I'm not sure how authentic the whole menu is, but we were very happy with the things we ordered. Highly recommended.

My first try of Vietnemese food and what a pleasure it was. The whole package was first class: the welcome, the service and, especially, the food. Everything was cooked to perfection and the flavours all complimented each other. Overall I rate the evening as one of the very best food experiences and I would certainly recommend it.

We visited shortly after Bistro had been renovated, what a change, the restaurant now matches the quality of food, the good is as always stunning, so tasty, flavours that just hit u from all angles, the chef is an absolute culinary genius! If you haven't been yet get yourself there, you are missing out 5* food!

Really tasty food.. We had the starter banquet: 6 starters for £8 per head, which is excellent value and a great way to taste several items. We finished with a Panacotta combined with papaya's--unusual but good.. Service could be a notch better, we visited on a busy Saturday evening and while we felt lucky that we got a table.. we...

went yesterday to celebrate my birthday with family and had a fantastic time. After closing for a refurbishment this place has come back to life!! I loved it before but it was quite dark feeling, but not now!!! It is now beautiful, bright and airy. The food is still totally amazing and the staff were lovely and welcoming. My mum... More
