Lovely lunch

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch last week. A friendly, relaxed and cheerful place with some excellent food. We had the set lunch menu which was both tasty and good value. We'll be back despite the journey.

We were a party of 4 visiting Bistro Saigon for the first time. The food was undeniably delicious and the service was excellent. It is a pity that the environment had some shortcomings. We were in a lower level, perhaps what was originally the basement. Unfortunately the noise levels were extremely high as there were two or three groups of... More

Booked for Saturday lunch with a 2 year old. Quite small, tables mostly ranged along a long wall. Very friendly and efficient staff. High chair provided. Quietly full, mostly couples. Parking available close by. No children's menu but portions big enough to share. Prawn crackers and rice 2nd portions at no extra cost. Tiger beer. Service was a little slow... More

Re-visited for our salt Wedding Anniversary. For a change, we entertained a Saturday evening meal. A larger choice from the menu made choosing our meal difficult - so many more options that I want to try. I settled for a starter of papaya and beef jerky, a main of seabass in ginger sauce, and a dessert of coconut and banana... More

We stayed in Ilkley for two nights. The food was so good in Bistro Saigon we went back the next night, the staff were attentive and friendly, the food is fairly priced and the chocolate sphere desert is not to be missed for a little bit of theatre and a lot of chocolate.

Ilkley is an affluent town and there are plenty of restaurants. Given the competition it takes something special to stay top of the pile. Recommended !

Visited for the first time on Saturday lunchtime. Was not disappointed in any way, service was good, staff were very pleasant , the food was lip smacking, so tasty, portion size was good and food was cooked fresh hence a small wait for the food - but who minds the wait if it is worth it! Would recommend to anyone... More
