Went as a party of four on a Saturday night and so glad we booked in advance. None of us had been here before but we are glad we did. We chose a selection of four different starters from the meat, fish and vegetarian selections and all were excellent especially the prawns. Main courses varied from pork, duck, chicken red... More

We collected our family members from The Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley after their journey back south from Scotland. The occasion was a delayed Birthday meal for my wife. We were instantly made welcome and on this particular evening the Owner /Chef was front of house. I introduced my family and he asked the if they had eaten Vietnamese Food before.... More

Having heard friends talk about this quaint restaurant we decided to have a family meal there to celebrate our daughters birthday there.... And disappointed were not !! The food was excellent and the atmosphere mTched the food. A tad expensive once you add on the sundries (rice/noodles etc) but still value for money. The staff were very pleasant and helpful...

Friendly staff who made us feel welcome straightaway. The restaurant was attractive and everywhere was clean. The tables were spaced well apart. The food was so tasty. We would definitely go back and also recommend the Bistro Saigon.

Very good menu, balancing traditional with modern twists. Lovely idea with starters to have option for mixed platter of personal choices rather than the usual one-dish-each experience. Range from tasty hearty fare (eg belly pork) through to lighter options (sea bass fillets) all with subtle yet distinctive flavours. Pity the lighting is somewhat bright as it lets down the ambience,... More

Went with my wife, 1830 on 20/08. We both had ribs to start, absolutely delicious. Wife had sea bass and jasmine rice on side, she really enjoyed it but couldn't finish it. I had caramel ginger chicken amd noodles. I ate every scrap and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd been sat opposite the puddings and had been eyeing up a couple... More

The menu has a great selection of starters, veg tempura is probably my no 1 choice. Although there is a good choice of mains to agonise over, my favourite are the little side salads with mint. They are just so refreshing. This food is great. service has always been good to great.

Second visit and still excellent. Buzzing little place with a really good 'can't choose' menu. Such clarity & quality of flavours. We had a good selection and all of it was first class, especially the duck & pork belly. Good wine list; efficient service; well played priced. Is there a better restaurant in Ilkley?

As soon as we sat down we were given a carafe of iced water, a bowl of prawn crackers and Vietnamese chilli sauce. A great start to the evening. It would easy to think the good service was because we came early, we were only the second table of the evening, but we noticed that a table for a large... More
