The food and ambiance was wonderful. Large portions but combined with fresh and light dishes which made the dining experience great!
The saffron crepe was delicious. It was a unique dish and we enjoyed it. I ordered the pork belly soup which everyone raves about. The soup was good but not mind blowing which I was hoping it would be. Although the ambiance is nice (a little too dark for me though)and the service is outstanding, it’s too pricey for my taste.
Waiter had zero personality at the table and completely not engaged. Food was good! Nothing spectacular.
It was disappointing. The service, not different from any low quality service restaurant. The waiter was not helpful, did things in a displeasure kind of way. He was not enjoying serving customers. The food was average, forgettable, simple. I’ve tasted much better asian food at cheaper places. The ambiance is ok and the noise level is comfortable.
Overall not a good experience. Won’t return.
Pad Thai was very good. Service was also good. We will be back!
It was awesome. The lights are dimmed pretty low, which makes for a great atmosphere. The waitress was very pleasant. It’s not cheap but it’s pretty hard to not enjoy yourself at Bida Manda.
Great food, interesting drinks
A great choice for a night out. If you’re interested in treating yourself this is a great place.
It was a dinner date to celebrate vaccination. I was expecting the service to be better. Food was good.
The food was absolutely incredible!! Definitely waited too long to go there!!
The food and service at Bida Manda are consistently outstanding. We will keep coming back. Too bad they’re not in Charlotte where we live!
The waitress and staff was amazing!!! Food was prompt!!! I felt like my fish was a tad bit over cooked for being a 30 meal.
This was our first time eating at Bida Amanda, we were blown away at the incredible food and service!
Thanks for the help making Monday night memorable! Will definitely be back!
Was expecting more flavor from the Khai Soi, otherwise everything else was great. Loved the homemade shrimp chips.
Amazing food.. having lived in Asia for 12 years this Laotian restaurant did not disappoint.
2nd time here and it did not disappoint again. I always love coming here and Bhavana.
Great service delicious food. Made our special night the best!
We love this restaurant!
The food was great. Our sever was great. I thought the spacing and temperature checks required for guest due to COVID were good measures, this made me feel better about eating out.
Very nice food in a very pleasant setting with wonderful service at a good price. We enjoyed the cocktails and the appetizers.
Food was amazing and our server, Abby, was wonderful! Will definitely be back!
Get the pork belly soup, you will not be disappointed
Exquisite and divinely prepared Laotian cuisine!
Had the Thom Kek (spelling? Was phenomenal) and my vegan partner was well taken care of by our knowledgeable server Maddie. Had a wonderful time. Will absolutely be going back.
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.
The drinks and food were very very good.
Very nice and helpful service.
Lovely family lunch
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!
