Description: Head chef Loc Bui was born and raised in Saigon, the old capital of Vietnam, before settling over here in England. He has devised a menu for the Bistro based on family recipes from generations past. Bistro Saigon offers an authentic Vietnamese experience in a charming Ilkley eatery with first class customer service by our knowledgeable and gracious staff members. All dishes are freshly cooked to order, providing a mouth-watering range of tastes and textures. Lemongrass, ginger, fish sauce and chillies are key ingredients on the menu. Dishes are stir-fried using seafood, chicken, beef, duck and pork, but there are also plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, created with tofu, soy sauce and a wealth of different vegetable varieties. For those who are sensitive to chillies, dishes can be cooked mild, medium or hot. In addition to providing something to suit every palate and dietary requirement, the food here is also very healthy, with plenty of fresh vegetables in every dish.

We went for lunch and The food was very good. I got spring rolls and marinated tofu. Both dishes were tasty. My husband got ribs to start and caramel pork for main. Whilst he liked the pork he said it was a rather strange flavour and wouldn’t be his first choice again. We shared a lovely pudding involving cream inside a chocolate shell with warm chocolate sauce poured over it.

Tasty food in a lovely ambience and the service was good too. I would recommend this restaurant.

Delicious food and always very helpful staff. We always come here when visiting Ilkley and often find ourselves craving their dishes.

We had lunch specials: 2 courses £15 and 3 courses £20. Both main courses were good: Ginger Chicken and Green Chicken Curry. However a meat roll starter , £5,80 (greasy) and Baked Alaska desert (£5.50) were disappointing- and rather expensive.
Good gluten free options. Good service.
So a mixed review that reflected inconsistent food that lunchtime.

Great food, reasonably priced for the quality. I especially like the pork belly on a bed of vegetables. Generous portion size, lovely presentation. Very good for kids and flexible enough to cook something a bit different if needed. Excellent attentive (but not too much) staff. Nice ambience and great location in the centre of Ilkley. Highly recommended.
