I have been coming here for a long time. I appreciate this place for many reasons: 1.) They took a chance at opening something with a shiny look in a neighborhood that hasn't seemed to care in decades. 2.) They have a turntable and play...More

Had lunch recently at Ngon Bistro. Food was good - my friend and I had the Vegetarian Delight Grande Soupe and the Ribeye Bun Salad. Would definitely return again.

The food was very tasty, from appetizer to dessert, and the atmosphere was great. There was also a fantastic wine selection. Will definitely try to get back to this place.

The food here is very flavorful and unique. I think it is a little overpriced, but their house made sodas were very good and so was the farm ramen on special.

We ventured to Ngon Bistro tonight and had a great experience. Visiting friends I hadn't seen in a while so we wanted to talk. The host recommended a table in a quieter corner for us and that type of personal service continued throughout. Our waitress...More
