Food had no flavor and noticeable lack of Asian spices. Nothing we ate from the crispy lettuce wraps to the coconut curry is worth ordering again. I get better curry at Costco.
It was a night of great food and a great atmosphere. The service, starting from the entrance, was warm and inviting. Our server did amazing with taking care of us and with offering us excellent food recommendations. This is why I continue to return again and again.
Bida Manda is always a great experience! We celebrated an anniversary and they made it very special with a champagne toast for us. Food was exceptional as always and unique from other spots in downtown Raleigh. I love the ambiance and service. This place is a must!
Great food and fabulous service. We have been waiting to go! We were not disappointed and enjoyed the entire evening.
Such a yummy meal! 2 days later and we’re still thinking about it!
Good overall. Apps great. The mains ok. Not best. Great area down town. Server was really good. Suggest a few other mains. Deserts 2. Not great.
This restaurant always comes highly recommended so we finally tried it out.
Our server, Abby, was fantastic! She had a positive energy about her and made recommendations based on our preferences. She was on point and checked back in often to make sure we were well taken care of.
The food was decent. We tried the lettuce wraps (appetizer), chicken curry, and stuffed peppers (appetizer). In my opinion, the food wasn’t anything amazing or “to die for”, it’s what I would expect from this type of cuisine.
The drinks were good and the atmosphere was mediocre. I’m glad we went and experienced things firsthand, but I’m left wondering what the hype is about this place.
Unreal, food is always amazing here. Need to get the lettuce wraps.
My husband and I had the most wonderful experience at Bida Manda. Not only was the food unbelievably amazing, but the service and the restaurant itself was lovely. It was so easy for both my husband (normal) and me (gluten free, vegetarian) to find food to order. There’s no way we will be going to Raleigh without getting a reservation here again. Seriously, this place deserves 10/5 stars! Get the lettuce wraps!
The food was very good. The drinks were overpriced. The decor needs improvement. The floor is literally cement. It felt like eating in a basement.
Excellent Service/ Excellent Food Quality/ Excellent Decor
The food and atmosphere were amazing! The pork belly soup is out of this world!
Service on the hand, is very inexperienced and amateur. This is from the food runner, server and manager! Staff needs to be better trained, especially for a restaurant of this caliber.
Food and Service were amazing!
Our server took our order, then brought out my husbands pork belly soup but then somehow didn't bring mine. She brought me my side green papaya salad. She immediately apologized and fixed the problem, but it was weird she forgot what I ordered in the first place.
Where to begin? Food was DELICIOUS, service was exemplary and overall we could tell the food was prepared and made fresh. Five stars for Bida Manda. We will be back!!
Very good Ambience and Good fresh food. Close to parking. Excellent service
Excellent food, the salmon was probably the best salmon I’ve ever had. The servers were knowledgeable and helpful, can’t wait to go back!
The service was amazing ..I would definitely recommend this restaurant. And will be visiting again
Excellent service! Portions are huge and amazing - it’s hard to choose! The cocktails are so much fun and everything was very Covid friendly. The one thing I would add is to turn the lights up a bit or add more candles because you want to see the amazing food. I have already made my next reservation. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
The food is amazing! Great selection! This was my second time eating there and can’t wait to go back.
Given the hype expected the food to be exceptional. It was pretty good but not crazy. Well besides the lettuce wraps.
Excellent overall experience. Highly recommended.
Glad to have this restaurant open again! we really enjoyed the food and will be back again
Best La food I've had stateside. Great service, and tasty cocktails too. Definitely recommend it to anyone.
Wonderful place and wonderful food and service!!
Exceptional all the way around!
Look, this is not a cheap or even moderately priced date night spot, but it is worth EVERY penny. The cocktails are made perfectly, while the food exudes authentic aroma and flavors. The service is friendly, prompt, and very knowledgeable. I couldn’t have asked for more.
It was a great place and the food was delicious!
We love this place and always have. Highly recommended.
First time I've had Laotian food and it was great. Dim atmosphere in the evening which is nice for a date. Food was very good. If its your first time ask the waiter for recommendations
Don't understand the hype. It was good, but not better that other Asian restaurants in the area
We were gifted a free dessert and appetizer for celebrating a birthday. We left so full and satisfied! Definitely will be coming back here.
Delicious! The pork belly soup might be the best dish in Raleigh.
This was by far one of the best meals I've had in years. The food was fresh and authentic. The ambiance was perfect for a date night. And it felt very safe during Covid.
Amazing food! Pork belly soup was just outstanding, the same with pork sausage with ginger. Interesting drinks and great service. We'll come back soon.
Amazing as always!
One of the best meals I’ve had in a while. Went there to celebrate my birthday and enjoyed their Naturalized Margarita with lettuce wraps and pad Thai. So yummy and service was great! Will definitely be going back.
Been going here for years, haven’t been since the pandemic. Food was amazing as always. Service was spotty.
We love Bida Manda. I hate there is a curfew and feel bad for the staff. I am so happy they are back open again. We enjoyed drinks and delicious small plates and dinner.
We will back soon.
Maddie was amazing. Great service and recommendations
