“Small is beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

A first time visit just to see what all the fuss is about realy. Decided to "eat in". Got myself the Buffet #1. Red thai curry, noodles and beef tangine.
Fell in love immediately. There should be a law against that beef tangine! Every one shoud be made to eat it. It was superb!
Red curry was a dream and the noodles cooked to perfection.
No wounder Borneo bistro is numder one.
Keep up the good work guys!

“Authentic curries with big flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Been meaning to try this place for ages as it was recommended by loads of people and I wasn't disappointed.
A good selection of dishes including a few more 'unusual' ones I wouldn't expect to see in Sunderland like goat on the bone and a Pilipino national dish of soy sauce chicken. My sister and I tried about 5 of the dishes and couldn't fault any.
Excellent value, friendly welcome. Highly recommend.

“Nice place and great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Lovely food here. Some great dishes. Delicious curries, stir fries and melt in the mouth meats.
On my last visit there was very little for veggies though so my wife had to mess around with the varying non meat part of dishes and wasn't impressed.
But if you like meat and nice spicey dishes then you will be impressed. Soft drinks only as far as I can recall though.
