Bistro Saigon is my favourite restaurant in Ilkley. Delicious food, good service and great value for money. Lots of gluten free options too :)

Dined here with friends and the service, food and atmosphere were excellent. The menu provides a lot of choices so there is no excuse for picking the right meal. The portions were big and our hosts mentioned that they had never seen such big portions before. Sounds like there has been a change here. I would recommend Bistro Saigon without... More

We visited with some friends on a Saturday night. Although there seemed to be plenty of room we were only given a choice of 6.30 or 8.30 when we booked. Although the staff were friendly the service was so-so. Our main course dishes arrived some time before the noodles, and we had to prompt them for those. Then nobody asked... More

The food and staff are very good (although I don't remember having prawn crackers in Vietnam). We really enjoyed it. I would only say to entice more family dining, a few simple less spicy dishes would be great for the kids although our children did quite well. I just think the ambience of the restaurant needs a bit of work.... More

Third time I have been to the Bistro Saigon and it was better than ever. The starters were out of this world and the main courses once again a delight. We all had the baked Alaska once again and it was perfect as usual. Can definitely recommend. You need to book it is always packed.

First stay in Ilkley, first visit to Bistro Saigon. I had researched best place to eat and most appropriate restaurant for a gluten intolerant diner. Bistro Saigon was recommended and did not fail. Just returned from a wonderful meal, welcoming and vibrant restaurant, helpful and friendly staff and most of all amazing, tasty and well presented food. Beats hands down... More

I came here by accident. I noticed the place as I was walking past. It is a small compact restaurant. The food was very good. Perhaps the place is a little short of space but I was here for an early lunch and the restaurant was nowhere near full. I shall return because my lunch was good and well priced.
