I’ve been waiting a year to go eat here. I received a gift card as a Christmas gift and so excited I got to use it and I was not disappointed. Wait staff was excellent food was delicious and huge portions I would recommend this restaurant a try
This is ranked as the third best restaurant in Raleigh; it’s definitely not that. I’ve tasted far better. It’s the dishonesty that’s wrong here. The food is great though, but not third place.
Food was not good. Do not recommend the Pad Thai
Excellent food and service. Lots of gluten and dairy free options and vegan choices
Lives up to the hype.
Still some vestiges of post-covid dining. The waiter forgot to tell us about the app to access the menu, several items ‘missing’ from the menu, but overall a great night of eating. The chicken wings were out of this world!!!
Our food was amazing and so was our server. The seabass was outstanding.
Victor is a gem!
Food was wonderful, really excellent. Noise was so overwhelming that we nearly left mid meal. The decor is lovely but absolutely nothing that absorbs noise. There was one table that was a group of 15. Along with an otherwise full restaurant and a bar scene it just took the decibels over the top. No way to carry on a conversation. The server couldn’t hear us and we couldn’t hear her. We’ll order take out or delivery but won’t eat in again.
First time at Bida Manda. Excellent food and an enjoyable new server, Emily. The background noise was acceptable, good because loud music in restaurants kills the opportunity to talk.
Amazing customer service and food was delicious!
Attentive service, delicious food with large portions, well balanced cocktails. Enjoyed the atmosphere
Exceptional. Only criticism was the pancake was a bit greasy. Berthing else, too notch including the cocktails. Great job!
I know people have had some concerns about this restaurant changing owners, but it was excellent. Food never disappoints and the overall experience was wonderful. Never had an issue in the past and you can tell the business has worked hard to keep it that way moving forward. I love this place - food and drinks were incredible.
It’s been over a year since we’ve been here and if anything it’s gotten better. Reasonable prices and amazing food. Follow the server’s recommendation and you won’t go wrong.
If you’ve never been, go! If you’ve been before, go back.
I had the pork soup, taste was amazing and you definitely won’t leave hungry. Wife had the Papaya salad with trout and it was even better than my soup.
The food and the choices are excellent. One of the best restaurants in the area. Even the wings are great.
The passion fruit pina colada was absolutely divine!!! My birthday cocktail drink! They were able to make my sister a virgin version. The food is absolutely delicious!! I ordered Tom Ka Gai the best I have ever had. Delicious chunks of chicken in every bite. Chicken wings with the three different sauces. Try all three. My favorite flavor Panang Curry sauce. The harbenero sauce I found delicious but super hot. Crispy Spring Rolls with ground pork extremely tasty. The star of the night Green Papaya Salad with Lemongrass Chicken. Absolutely amazing! The friendly staff surprised me with a birthday dessert Coconut Melon Shaved Ice. Fantastic! I highly recommend this restaurant. I returned a few days later but unfortunately they are closed on Mondays. I wish this restaurant existed in NYC. I guess I will have to make another trip to Raleigh.
Everything was delicious. My wife and I really enjoyed our meal even if our food was a little adventurous for her. Victor gave excellent service. We will return, especially for the cocktails.
Service was okay and entrees left much to be desired. Would only go back for appetizers.
Great server! Good always great!
Food was delicious!! Our server was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations for drinks, apps and dinner. We were too full for desert but will definitely be back next time we are in NC to visit. Highly recommend for foodies that love a great atmosphere and a great menu with not your every day ordinary menu.
A dear friend has been wanting me to join her at this restaurant for the past few years, being from CA & half Asian, I'm super picky about it but finally agreed to go. It's noisy, as most places in downtown Raleigh are, so makes for slightly challenging conversation. The food is fantastic and seating is very comfortably distanced, service was pretty good however, our particular server seemed a bit defensive but everyone has their own style. If you want amazing Asian food, this is your spot, can't wait to go again! It's reputation is VERY well deserved!
Another Father’s Day dinner for him and this place and the food is amazing !!!!!!! 🥳 I got the curry plate and he got ribs and pork belly it was amazing ! We also tried the beef jerky which had a spice but was good
Excellent start to finish. Amazing dishes and outstanding service.
Absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the Crispy Pork Belly soup and the Pad Lao. Highly recommend both.
I've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Last night lettuce wraps, lemongrass sausage, spring rolls, sweet chili salmon - all were excellent. Bida Manda has a creative menu and a kitchen that knows what it is doing. Our server was helpful, patient and well trained. All of this combined with the cosmopolitan atmosphere makes me want to stop typing and go back now. Highly recommended!
We stopped in to celebrate an anniversary yesterday, and John took care of us at the bar. He was knowledgable, charismatic, and attentive. We will come back because of John!
Service was fantastic and food was delicious. Great place for a special celebration.
Perfect, from the second we walked in. From the service to the outstanding food & drinks. We will be excited to come back.
This is not a cheap night out... Some of our food was amazing, some was mediocre. Our waitress was fabulous. But a food 'runner' delivers the food, and she was borderline rude. Slammed the food down with NO smile, nothing nice to say at all. It was a nice evening, but unfortunately in no hurry to go back.
We had an amazing and delicious dinner. Our server was excellent and he brought us complimentary bubbly to celebrate our recent engagement. I had the pad Thai with chicken and my fiance had the pho, we also got the purple sticky rice for dessert.
Holly was the waitress and did a great job!! Got the sweet chili salmon and it was awesome
Great service, delicious food
Nice food, very refreshing. We glad that we went!
Tables along the bar side, away from main part of restaurant, in the back by the bathrooms, do not a 2 month in advance dinner reservation, make.
Great service, amazing mixologist and bartender, wonderful food.
So many positive reviews that made it seem like this place was a must. The pad Thai was really oily. My husband had sausage in his dish that was full of gristle. Just gross. Also, so much food is unnecessary. I have certainly had better.
Amazing food, service was phenomenal. Noise a bit louder than I would have liked but that’s a minor complaint overall. I would highly recommend for a great and intimate dining experience.
Looking for a dish you haven't had before? This is your place. Lettuce wrap and sausage spring rolls great. Saffron crepe entree also wonderful. Kind of noisy and chairs pretty uncomfortable.
A great spot with unique food. The service was terrific, the decor is lovely and the food delicious.
The food and ambiance was wonderful. Large portions but combined with fresh and light dishes which made the dining experience great!
