“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We've eaten here a number of times though not for a while.
Started with the option to choose a platter of 5 starters from the menu. The thai basil squid was a highlight, tender squid served with onion and thai basil, very very good. Also had fish cake, traditional spring roll, chicken satay and a crisp and tasty sweet potato fritter - all excellent and served with various dipping sauces.
The vietnamese curries are goodhere and the green chciken curry didn't disappoint, tender chicken in a tasty sauce with various vegetables included. Chilli prawns was lso good. All washed down with a nice bottle of Carminiere, total £63. Great food and good value.
Staff as ever friendly and efficient, whats not to like?

“Disappointing After All the Hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

I have eaten here once before and have to say I wasn't excited at the prospect of eating there again for a friend's birthday. The menu was limited and I found little to excite me on reading it. The fishcakes were tasty and the chicken with noodles also scoring 3.5 (good) if that were an option on here. Unfortunately, the decor is terrible. It's like eating a meal in your Grandma's front room and my friends agreed. I feel it is over-priced, purely because it is in Ilkley.

“Fanastic food once again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Took 2 friends to Bistro Saigon as we always like it , they loved it too , we shared a banquet starter where you get to choose 5 items off the menu, they were all delicious especially the spring rolls and fish cakes served with delicious flavoursome dipping sauces. Satay tofu was a winner from the main as was the yellow and green curries . Massive portions so we were unable to finish everything but wished we could as it was all so tasty. Service was good as always , we paid £30 each for starter main and drinks and that included a tip , good value for what you get .

“Sea-Bass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Visited this restaurant on a Thursday evening and was fortunate that the restaurant had a table available, i would recommend making a reservation. We had a mixed starter which was hot and superb!! The main courses we had were Sea-bass in black bean sauce with noodles and my wife had ginger chicken with rice. Both dishes were fantastic all washed down with a bottle rose! If your in Ilkley you must visit this restaurant.

We have eaten here several times and have never been dissapointed. The menu is extensive and the food delicious. I think the drinks are perhaps a bit overpriced, but the service is always good. Never been to Vietnam, but the food here makes me want to!
