The vegetables weren't fresh or cooked well enough, giving off a slightly bad odour. The service wasn't very good where even to take away had to be done manually. The food was generally okay with a bit too much lime for my taste.

The Thai cuisine and its seasonings can be disconcerting, perhaps they are not to your taste? We are sorry that our table was a bad experience.

A few years ago we visited this restaurant and were disappointed. We now live locally and eat Asian regularly. We always go to highly rated restaurants and inc our favourites fufu and padang padang but wanted to give santosha another go as we live round the corner. Food was bland, more expensive than most others and the waitress got our... More

I was feeling under the weather after 3 1/2 weeks in France, and all I wanted was a big bowl of soup. But, restaurants don't tend to offer that kind of thing, just as an entree. But when I saw that they offered Pho I was thrilled. It was a big bowl of spicy noodle soup that really made me... More

Although prices and dishes sizes will impress you (not very expensive) flavors are the same. If you have eaten true thai food this restaurant is design to french or local people who are not very familiarize with spicy, seasoned food as thai is! Dished are under seasoned, it is the place if you want to eat a lot with friend,... More

While in Bordeaux and the lady wanting a spicy dish, we decided to seek out this much hyped Santosha restaurant. We found it with ease a short walking distance from the Place du Palais tram stop in a square buzzing with diners. There were tables available inside although most diners were enjoying the summer outdoors. We ordered Nasi Gorang and... More

We went for lunch, based on the positive reviews on TripAdvisor, and they were right on! The setting is quite nice, right on an entertaining square surrounded by restaurants. We had a variety of dishes, the thai wings were superb, as were the chicken and pork sate. My wife was very pleased with one of the many vegetarian dishes available.... More

Very good food and nice dishes for a reasonable price! Be careful what you eat, some dishes are very spicy! Sometimes there are a lot of people but they serve very fast!

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
