“High quality food and services!!!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

I can't say enough about this place. The food was great with a perfect presentation. My waiter was on top of everything. Nice atmosphere and plenty of food. I had enough left over for another meal. It is kinda expensive, but well worth it.

“best meal of our vacation”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

My husband and I ate a late lunch at Sao Asian Bistro during our vacation to Southern Illinois. It was absolutely delicious, a nice environment, and outstanding service. We will definitely be back to this restaurant during our next vacation to the area. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

“It was good -- nothing too special”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was good quality Asian food - Chinese and Thai, really. Very spicy Tom Yum soup. Quite good Singapore noodles. Rather bland Pad Thai. Service was great and everything was fine -- just nothing that really stood out.
