It was great!
Great restaurant! The service was awesome and the food was so good. This place is great!
Great place for creative fresh food. The plates are a great size and the appetizers are delicious great way to start. The cold brew coffee palate cleanser at the end is a nice touch. You can tell they love what they do and it shines through- makes this a great place.
I’m glad I got to go
My husband and I have been going to Bida Manda for easily three years for every special occasion and even when we just feel like having a random date night. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough. Even as I am personally vegan, it never fails to make the top of my list. The atmosphere is perfect and service is just right! I can’t say enough amazing things about this brilliant place.
I liked the food. The pork belly soup was excellent. Accommodations could be improved, more comfortable chairs, better lighting (I could hardly read the menu), and wider spacing between table aisles (at times I felt like my seating was interfering with foot traffic behind me).
We have been waiting to get here for quite a while and while the food was outstanding I must say the service was incredible.
Best dining experience we have had in the Triangle in quite some time
Cannot wait to go back
This was a Valentines Day lunch. Bida Manda serves excellent Laotian food. Southeast Asian food that’s good is rare in Raleigh. This was very tasty. Cocktail was good as well. What we would warn diners is that even medium to hot seasoning is very spicy here—typical of this cuisine—so approach carefully if you’re sensitive. Service was attentive and helpful.
Great food, great service, great experience! Celebrated a low key Valentine's Day with late lunch at Bida Manda. Could not have had a more perfect afternoon.
Nice place and friendly staff and good food, we enjoyed our valentine day for second year here.
The food was good but not worth the price. It wasn't anything extraordinary outside of other Asian cuisine I've had for much cheaper. The best part of the meal was the appetizer and the desert. The entree was lackluster. No better than take out. Good for special occasions or if you're trying to impress someone with an expensive restaurant. I won't be back any time soon
Great service and food. Chicken Curry was excellent. Papaya salad with filet mignon was amazing. Warning, Thai hot is really hot. Loved it.
Bida Manda is our favorite restaurant in Raleigh. Everything we have ever ordered has been perfection. Our favorites are the crispy rice lettuce wraps and the sea bass but you really can't go wrong. The staff, service and ambiance are wonderful as well. Our last waiter, Joe, was one of the best waiters we have ever had-the perfect mix of friendly and funny without being over the top about it.
Over the years, we've heard truly great stories about this restaurant. Had a difficult time getting reservations for Valentines dinner but were able to get there that week anyway. The food was very good. I must say, however, that you should be familiar with this type of food before ordering. It is very spicy! Had an extremely good/friendly/knowledgeable waiter (Cliff) but he seemed to be more interested in the table next to us who had someone attending that he knew well. Would have liked more attentive waiter to give us more recommendations. All in all, a beautiful restaurant ~ good food ~ very noisy but I doubt that we will go back.
One of the best restaurants you could find in downtown Raleigh. The food was superb with lots of flavor and texture - loved it; will repeat.
Amazing, as always! Bida Manda never fails to deliver great service, food, and cocktails.
This was our second visit to Bida Manda and it was absolutely incredible. We would have gone many more times, however it is so good, reservations are always full! I ordered the pork belly soup after hearing from many how incredible it is and it did not disappoint. I loved it. We also ordered the lettuce wrap appetizer and the sausage. These dishes were also to die for. Bida Manda is a must visit in Raleigh.
My wife and I went to this restaurant on a date. The ambience was great. The service was great, from the front desk to the waitstaff. The food was outstanding. We will definitely be back.
Another great meal at Bida Manda! Still our favorite restaurant in Raleigh! So flavorful and delicious. Everything is truly wonderful. See you again! Thanks!
Excellent meal. Good value, friendly and attentive service. On recommendation, we split the pork belly soup and it was amazing. Wife had the papaya salad with pork, which was delicious, I had the crepe, which looked beautiful but I thought it could hav3 been more flavorful. Opted for the trio desert, which was very good. Certainly looking forward to trying a few more items.
