As usual the food here is very tasty. Beef Randang is a must. My only complaint is that they always give me too much!! Staff are very polite and friendly and the place is kept clean and tidy. I'll be back very soon 😊

Food is always hot and fresh. A little salty sometimes but as the dishes are rich in flavour it is to be expected just like other takeaways, no place for those who are on a health kick. Owners are always friendly and happy for you to try before you buy. Reasonably priced too.

Don't know what the hype is about this place, everything was red or brown and tasted the same. Very disappointing

Absolutely love this place , the owner is friendly and welcoming and it's always very busy (just a shame he can't find a bigger site for his restaurant) the food is fabulous and very well priced , can't fault the place and would highly recommend people to try this place if they haven't already 😊

I would have never thought that this place would be as good as it is, from the location and the exterior but and it is fantastic. The choice and value for money makes the trip worth while. I first noticed The Borneo Bistro when every time I drove past the place (sometimes about 8 times a day) the queue was... More
