A first time visit just to see what all the fuss is about realy. Decided to "eat in". Got myself the Buffet #1. Red thai curry, noodles and beef tangine.
Fell in love immediately. There should be a law against that beef tangine! Every one shoud be made to eat it. It was superb!
Red curry was a dream and the noodles cooked to perfection.
No wounder Borneo bistro is numder one.
Keep up the good work guys!

Been meaning to try this place for ages as it was recommended by loads of people and I wasn't disappointed.
A good selection of dishes including a few more 'unusual' ones I wouldn't expect to see in Sunderland like goat on the bone and a Pilipino national dish of soy sauce chicken. My sister and I tried about 5 of the dishes and couldn't fault any.
Excellent value, friendly welcome. Highly recommend.

Lovely food here. Some great dishes. Delicious curries, stir fries and melt in the mouth meats.
On my last visit there was very little for veggies though so my wife had to mess around with the varying non meat part of dishes and wasn't impressed.
But if you like meat and nice spicey dishes then you will be impressed. Soft drinks only as far as I can recall though.

Went a couple of weeks ago with friend. Sat in, this time, both of us ravenous and she's an avid carnivore and quite a curry cook so I was interested to find out what she thought.

Lovely range of freshly cooked curries, my friend took Kevin's suggestion of a rendang and something that looked equally beefy. My hot Thai curry and spice-laden jerk chicken choices were wonderful. Rounded, fiery, hot in temperature and in flavour. Perfect on a rainy day.

The cafe itself is spick & span and the place was full on a mid-week afternoon, with people coming and going all the time for takeways.

A great asset to Sunderland, and lovely people.

The occasional vegetarian or vegan choice would make the menu absolutely perfect, and I'm sure customers could put the word out via Twitter or Facebook so it would all get eaten. But hey, it's a top scorer anyway.

Thank you!
