I first heard about this restaurant from the heart warming episode of "This is love" . After tearing up about his love of his family I thought about how I'd love to visit there. Unfortunately, I live really far away so I didn't think I would. A few months later I was on a road trip and was finding a place to eat and saw the name. I immediately remembered the translation which brought back to mind the episode. The food was great. Seriously. The servers were nice and the place was really well put together. I'm so glad I was able to visit. Everything is rich and delicious (that I ate) and I left feeling very very full and happy. I'm critical of food and service because I love both so much, so I was thrilled the place was actually as good as I had suspected it would be. Unfortunately I left my bag there but when we called about it they were super nice about it all. They had even tried calling me but I had put my phone on airplane mode. One of the owners herself spoke with us and had locked up my bag safely. I guess if you're going to be forced to go back to visit a place this is the best place to do it at. Hopefully next time I won't be so road weary and remember my bag. 💯

The best meal of my life! I came here to celebrate graduation with friends, and Bida Manda made it the perfect night. The cocktails are amazing and the food is absolutely divine - so flavorful and unexpected. Our waiter Cliff was amazing. He made great recommendations - he asked lots of questions and even brought a surprise dish out for a friend who could not decide what she wanted. The service is impeccable and the food is crazy good - would recommend to anyone!

I've eaten here 4x during my 5 day visit in Raleigh! The service is outstanding...couldn't be more friendly or welcoming. The restaurant itself is pretty ...the music is understated and the food is out of this world! I highly recommend the pumpkin curry, the shrimp summer rolls and the Thai ice tea! Oh and if you can fit any more food into yourself after all that...sticky rice and mango will really top it off!!!!!
