I've been there plenty times and was never disappointed, the food is always great and the service always quick. Love the place itself, it's decorated in a stylish way in my favorite neighborhood. The downside of the place's popularity is that it's often crowded and noisy : i would recommend the terrace.

Ordered a red curry with chicken and got a mish mash of chicken meat pieces with a very liquid sauce and not the usual thick Thai curry sauce though it was flavorful but I would not call this a Thai curry dish. Rice was excellent though. The other chicken dish we ordered was not great either. Maybe their other dishes... More

We were a group of friends for dinner. The meal served was copious but not to my expectations. However, the desert was really excellent and really help us finish the evening outstandingly

After a long day travelling we arrived in Bordeaux and fancied something other than French food, a taste sensation and we were delighted with all that we found at Santosha. We shared a couple of dishes from the tapas section... The sausage dish and the prawns and both were utterly delicious. We then had a beef dish with rice and... More

Not much ambiance if you're eating in but takeout is great. They are quick and friendly and the food is not great, but solid. We tried red curry, a sauteed vegetable dish, satay, a beef salad and a spiced chicken dish. All were solid choices.

This "Asian street-food" restaurant is very busy which should be a good sign. Some of the staff were capable of dealing with this and engaged well with their customers while others had a more abrupt manner. Our table was outside and the ambiance was not helped by the rather tacky furnishings and being surrounded by the queue for take away... More

Sunday in Bordeaux is fairly quiet and finding a good place for lunch tricky with 90% of restaurants closed it seems. Santosha is on an old square near the cathedral and was packed with locals and tourists. With the 35 C heat outside the busy kitchen staffed by 3 slightly frenzied Thais looked like perhaps the worst place to be.... More

It was served almost 5 minutes after ordering, the red curry was dry, the chicken was over cooked, the beef that I had was good. Maybe the curry was a bad choice, but the restaurant is definitely overrated.

Best go to Santosha early rather than late, it's always quite full, ( fyi they do take away) it's a very trendy "street thaï" restaurant in Bordeaux. They have a couple of sister restaurants as well, but me and my friends always end up in this one, food is great... that must be why ;) I recommend the satay skewers,... More

The service was poor. Not a warm welcome. The portion of the food was large but the taste was out of my expectation. Taste weird. Far from the original Asian taste.
