I've been here several times for dinner, and I'd go again. The food is first class - wonderful, intense, sublime flavours emerge from each dish. The service is fine, pleasant but not first class. The atmosphere is similar - very pleasant, but a bit bright and harsh. The wine choice is adequate, but if you're looking for something rather special,... More

As it was my birthday, a meal out was on the cards and the choice was mine. I have wanted to try Vietnamese food since watching the Hairy Bikers Oriental series and now I have, I can't wait to try more. We started with the mixed platter of starters which included fried spring rolls, pork and vegetable dumplings, prawn toasts,... More

My wife and I decided to eat out in Ilkley this evening after finding ourselves child free due to school holiday arrangements, we set of planning to go to one of the restaurants we'd been to before, but a last minute deviation brought us to Bistro Saigon. The decor is fine, clean crisp, contemporary (but not tacky) and not trying... More

Our first visit after Bistro Saigon's refurbishment and we weren't disappointed. The new layout and appearance is a great improvement. The food was as good as ever and our waitress was really engaging . Fantastic dishes. We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to orhers.

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.
