I like this restaurant

Third time I go to the Bodega, over three years. I like this restaurant. Especially their nems that come with salad and green herbs. The best I know. The service is kind, efficient. Servers do care about customers. I like the cantina atmosphere

Visited Vietnam 2 years ago, this was the best Viet food I ever ate afterwards. The neighbourhood is not great, but certainly not dangerous.

Ordered lemon grass chicken and vegetarian spring roll and they were great. The only reason I went was because I was waiting for a friend. Will go back next time in town as would love to try the PHO.

Basic Vietnamese fare with above average pho at very reasonable prices. My only issue with this place is that you pick your own cutlery out of a metal container on top of the table. Germaphobes like me have a tough time trying not to think about all the folks who may have inadvertently touched my fork before I pulled it... More

Came to BB for an early dinner. Some people have mentioned about the Tenderloin location but during daylight it should not be a problem and the area still draws many people that are not trying to cause any problems. Yes, there are plenty of street people but most are not attempting to start confrontations. as I mentioned in the title... More

We went there to try pho for this first time. Needless to say, we were impressed by the service and taste of the food. Our portion size was quite large I must say. The only downside was that this place is in a shaky neighborhood. I would do lunch here not dinner because of the area. Overall, we would try... More

Basic and rather bare appearance despite the linens on the wooden tables but first-class food. Open daily from 10am-3pm and 5-10pm. Does not deliver. Having visited Vietnam with anticipation some years ago, we were disappointed to repeatedly discover while there that the food was actually much better at Vietnamese restaurants in the developed countries - especially Paris (France), Vancouver and...

If only there had been more than two of us, we could have tried more dishes. We ate: Nom (green papaya salad with Vietnamese "beef jerky" $6.30) - the balance of dressing, peanuts, noodles, papaya, beef and seasoning was just right. Bun Cha Hanoi (marinated grilled pork and salad wrap $13.50) is very tender pork in a delicately flavoursome broth,... More

3 of us stopped by Bodega Bistro for dinner on a random week night, as we happened to be in the area. I'm always a little nervous to try a new Vietnamese place because my partner is Vietnamese and very hard to please with restaurant food. What a really nice surprise to have enjoyed everything we ordered. I don't remember... More
