“lunch in Ilkley”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

The meal was first class in every respect. I knew the chef from his time at a vietnamese restaurant in Canterbury. If anything the standard is now higher. Lovely chicken and beef in very tasty pungent sauces. Last year I was in Saigon for the new year (Tet). The food was as good in restauarants there but no better than the lucky folk of Ilkley can get here. Thank you Loc. Look forward to visiting again when in Yorkshire.

“very tasty”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

This was our first visit and we went for the 2 course lunch at £10.95 per person. The staff were pleasant and we were offered prawn crackers. To start I chose the hot and sour soup and my wife and son had the Oriental prawns..The food was delicious. Unfortunately we were then kept waiting 45 minutes for our main course. When we complained we were offered a free glass of house wine. When the main course arrived it was very good. I had the lemongrass chicken, my wife had the green curry and my son had the chille Beef. All very good. The flavours were slightly different to similar dishes in other restaurants and very enjoyable The rice was also good but they did not give us quite enough. We asked for more and they gave us another portion without any fuss. We left feeling satisfied and I would recommend this restaurant. The meal was good value.

“A superb Vietnamese Meal”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We have visited Bistro Saigon several times (as we live in Ilkley) and have not been disappointed on any of our visits, both at lunchtimes and for evening Dinner.

Food is extremely tasty, and is authentic Vietnamese, freshly cooked to order, and is served traditionally, the food is very good quality, with lots of extra touches, with generous portions, and the staff ensure that the rice bowls and teas are topped up, try the Chilli Beef you will not be disappointed, vegetarian options are also available which are equally as good, reasonably priced

Décor is good with napkins on the table, fresh tablecloth's and a pleasant but not fussy atmosphere, staff are attentive and good humoured, we plan to visit again soon.
