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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
