Great value at £45 for the 3 of us, and food exceptional too. A bit hidden away. Deserves to be much busier than it was.

Visited with a friend for a lunch time catch up. The food was amazing and the service was spot on. Have to say the best Vietnamese food I have tried to date.

The restaurant is an average Vietnamese restaurant which is perfectly ok but not special. But it's the only Vietnamese in Ilkley, so Hobson's Choice if Vietnamese is what you want.

It's great to find something just a bit different. I really couldn't fault a thing, it's a great place, recently refurbished and very smart. The welcome was warm, the service good and the food fantastic. Can't wait to read visit

Lovely food - really good. Dropped a star only because it was blooming freezing in the restaurant. (Not enough characters for my review apparently. It was cold. Not the food. The place was cold.)

Went last Thursday and had an amazing meal. Had the shared platter for starters it was good to try five different ones for a very reasonable price.

As a pre-holiday treat the Saigon lived up to our friends recommendation. Good service with humour and appropriate engagement gave the four of us a fine evening. Would recommend the shared starter platter and the truly scrummy spring rolls. The caramelised ginger chicken is also one to try.

Visited Bistro Saigon with friends last night. Some of the friendliest waiting staff I've come across for ages. Attentive without being obtrusive. The food was very good, especially the sharing platter of mixed starters- great for if you can't decide which to have. The food was good value and well cooked.
