This was my first visit to the restaurant since it's refurbishment. It was without doubt one of the tastiest meals I have ever had. We had the staters for two - you pick five starters and you get one of each per person. They were all delicious especially the squid. For my main course I had tofu satay. I was... More

We booked this restaurant for a group of friends on the eve of a family wedding. This was based on a local recommendation and it more than lived up to expectations. Very helpful staff, who were happy to help menu selection for diners unfamiliar with Vietnamese cuisine. Food and service of a very high standard. It was a great start... More

We called in without booking at 6 pm on a Sunday and were given a very warm welcome, excellent service and delicious food! The refurbishment is delightful and conducive to a great dining experience! Bravo! I must remember to say no coriander though next time! That's my fault not theirs!! 😖

We went here to celebrate our daughters birthday. It was a Monday evening and the restaurant was about half full. It only has about 10 tables, therefore it is nice and cosy. The staff were very helpful and the meal we had was outstanding. We had the mixed platter starter which is an excellent idea as you can try allsorts,... More

Fantastic food in a delightful restaurant. Very helpful staff who organised our meal as we were in a hurry to get to an event. The flavours were fantastic and one of the best bowls of soup I've ever tasted.

Well the review says October but it was actually 1st November. We booked for 4 of us and were shown to a table downstairs. I didn't even know they had a downstairs. We didn't really fancy the table with it being next to a speaker so we asked for another one. We ended up on the ground floor by the... More

Bistro Saigon had a makeover. Gone is the slightly seedy black and red decor to be replaced by fresh lime and brown colour scheme, with bamboo shoots. The new toilets are a vast improvement too. Not sure about the conversion of the downstairs store room into a dining space - we felt rather forgotten when we dined in that area,... More

The restaurant is beautiful and the staff are really accomodating, especially when there are so many delicious things on the menu that you can't make up your mind. We chose the shared starters which were yummy, especially the sticky ribs. I had the sea bass as a main course and my husband had chilli beef both of which were scrumptious.... More
