Excellent food and service!
I was visiting Raleigh fOr just a couple of hours and was so fortunate to find this #1 rated restaurant. The papaya salad with crispy lemongrass trout was amazing and the crispy rice lettuce wraps were delicious. Besides outstanding and authentic cuisine, Grace and her colleagues were most welcoming and kind! Christina was a wonderful help in making my lunch choice!
Thanks to Grace, Christina and all!
Love this place! There is a reason it’s the number one restaurant in Raleigh!!
Everything it's cracked up to be. Worth waiting to get a reservation. We were there as two couples. We had the crepe, pad Thai, the curry and the papaya salad. Sharing was recommended and we went that route, passing plates. All of them were excellent. The crepe is especially amazing. All of the food was really flavorful and fresh. My wife is vegan and the rest of us were not. They were very accommodating. Great service. The waitress was terrific. The owners stopped by just to say hi and ask our impression. We're definitely going back. Bida Manda is definitely a gem. Deserves the attention it gets in Raleigh.
Our waiter was personable and knowledgeable. Food was unique and fabulous.
Loved this place! The ambiance is awesome and everything on the menu is delicious!
Great food and atmosphere - pork belly soup, lettuce wraps and fried wings are amazing and I order every time! My go to when friends are in town.
Came for my birthday. Had a reservation bit the restaurant was running late but they provided free appetizers due to the wait. The sausage was amazing. The crispy rice lettuce wrap was really good but I don't think I would pay for it. I ordered the sea bass and it was so flaky and flavorful. My favorite item was my father's curry chicken. I was so exciting to go and I was not let down. I can not wait to go back!!!
Always great. One of my favorite spots. Great Loatian food with great presentation, served with a smile. Have had even a so so experience in many visits here
I had heard so much about this place over the years and wanted to check it out. Asian fusion isn't the highest cuisine on my list, but I found the food well prepared, creative, flavorful and very fresh. This is a place worth checking out.
