Laotian
Bida Manda is a thoughtful gathering place celebrating the diverse food traditions and culture of Laos. The Sanskrit ceremonial term for father and mother, Bida Manda was created out of the deep love and appreciation of food and its power to bring people together.

Please be advised that we only seat complete parties. Reservations are highly recommended, however our bar seats are available at a first come first serve basis. Due to high volume, we have a 15 minute grace period, if you are running later than 15 minutes from your reservation time kindly give us a call and we will try our best to accomodate you.

Thank you so much for your continued support and we can’t wait to host you soon!

    First time I went all around 5 STAR. This was my second time coming, made a reservation and got right in to our table. Took awhile to get the app and drinks we ordered. Drinks and food were good.

    When we arrived at the restaurant for our reservation, there was a sign taped to the door saying they were closed. We drove all the way from Durham with guests to dine here! I would have expected a phone call given that we had a reservation.

    We arrived for our reservation to find a note on the door telling us that the restaurant was closed. We received no notice before arriving, and have received nothing since to explain what happened or to explain why we received no indication in advance of our coming downtown. We'd appreciate knowing what happened and think some measure of explanation from the restaurant would have been appropriate.

    When we got to the restaurant there was a sign on the door that said they were closed, couldn't answer any of the questions but surely Open Table could have been used to let us now that they had closed down.

    Once again Bida Manda has given excellent food and service as always. Hands down the best Laotian restaurant in Raleigh and one of my favorites.

    Their food was certainly good, not great. Staff was excellent. Friends’ of mine from out of town met for a celebratory dinner and it was highly rated so I think I built it up too much on my head. We had the pork and chicken noodle soups. They were both good but considering it is ranked one of the top restaurants in Raleigh, I was hoping for a little more. Value was great, I would go again. But based on the other reviews I was expecting something over the top and it was just good

    The food was delicious. We got the lettuce wraps for an appetizer. My husband ordered the curry and I ordered the cashew chicken. The curry was spicier than we had expected considering the menu didnt have the spice icon next to it. The cashew chicken was delicious. Lots of food. We had more than half home. The complimentary shrimp chips they served used in the beginning reminded me of my childhood. Since it was our anniversary, they gave us a free dessert. The macaroon dessert to share. One was strawberry the other was tiramisu. Im not a fan of strawberry things so it wasnt my favorite. The tiramisu tasted more like chocolate and less like any coffee. Our waitress was very nice, and perhaps she had a lot of tables, but there seemed to be a lot of time between her coming back to our table to take our order or check on us if we needed anything. She also maybe seemed young so could just be experience. Ive been a waitress before so I didnt hold it against her.
