A word from Bodega Bistro
Bodega Bistro has been a family-run business serving authentic and quality food to San Francisco’s Little Saigon District for over 10 years. Located on 607 Larkin, we strive to give the customers a great experience, delicious dishes, and quality service. Our name “Bodega” is a clever word play: Originating from the Vietnamese language, Bo means beef, De means Lamb, and Ga means chicken. Bodega Bistro has been mentioned in the SF Examiner, 7x7 Magazine “100 Things to Eat in San Francisco”, and also Food Paradise’s segment “Taste Like Chicken.” Billy Ho is the executive chef at Bodega Bistro. While being of Chinese descent, Billy learned the Vietnamese culture while growing up in Hanoi. He has always been a fan of food due to the excitement it brings to others. Billy continues to share new flavors with his customers through a combination of Chinese, Vietnamese, and French influence in his cuisine.

  • How is this on OpenTable?
    Dined on 8/20/2014
    The restaurant was entirely empty with the exception of one other table. The food was just OK. I have had better Vietnamese elsewhere in the city. The floor was sticky, the menu was laminated in old plastic that was falling apart, and the service was not good despite our being close to the only patrons. We had to flag down the staff a number of times. They did consistently refill our water glasses, though. The light switch in the bathroom only worked when jimmied into the right position, and the light went out regardless while I washed my hands. From their website, the chef sounded competent and it looked good, but I do not understand how this restaurant is on OpenTable. I will not be returning.
