“Great meal with authentic flavours”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Our first visit after Bistro Saigon's refurbishment and we weren't disappointed. The new layout and appearance is a great improvement. The food was as good as ever and our waitress was really engaging . Fantastic dishes. We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to orhers.

“Delightful authentic food”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

First time visit with friends , and the food was excellent. You can tell the place has recently been refitted as everything looks new. Good service, authentic spiced Vietnamese food, and typically quite heathy if you choose the lighter items. It was very busy even on a week night so book in advance. We will definitely return. Excellent.

“superb flavoured food”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Visited as a group of 6 the restaurant has been refurbished and is excellent, the staff are very attentive and they even lent our table some reading glasses as we had forgotten ours. The starters were amazing and tasty and main courses were delicious. Excellent evening

A modern airy restaurant, food was delicious (lunchtime) and the staff very knowledgable about what to have and how to put the flavours together. Very reasonably priced too

“Great refurb but disappointing dishes”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

We are Bistro Saigon stalwarts and our visits are into double figures with not a murmur of criticism. Sadly it was a bit disappointing on our first visit after the refurbishment. Great decor and layout now, it's strikes the right balance, tasteful, great use of space yet has atmosphere. The food was the problem. My chilli beef was tasteless, my friends yellow curry was incredibly salty and the taste was unpleasant. The signature dish we all love 'mango chicken' was decidedly average. The red curry was the redeeming dish, it delivered it's anticipated aromatic flavours. What's going on guys? Has the chef changed or just having an off day? We accept it was a busy night with lots of covers but please taste before sending out. We will wait for other friends to report an upturn before we choose BS over the other equally great restaurants we love nearby.....we wait optimistically.
