Food was tasty, service was not great

My friend and I visited the Guelph location today for lunch. My friend arrived before me and was seated. When I got there, both women at the front door just stared at me, no "hello" or "how are you" or even "how many for lunch?". I said a polite hello and saw my friend so seated myself. We were... read more

Visited as the other Vietnamese restaurants were closed. Service and food was average and nothing special. Will rethink about visiting in the future.

Excellent Thai food at Pho Ben Thanh. Located near other businesses and the theater. Very good for lunch or dinner. The large menu is wonderful and should please all diners. Be creative and try something you have never had before. This is the place to explore foods.

Has the best pho I've ever had. Service is always fast, I've never had to wait longer than 15 minutes to get my food. Generally speaking we will get our apps within 5 minutes. The pad siew (don't think I spelled that right) is one of my favourites. Overall it is a solid and consistently good place to go to.

My Wife and I stopped in here for dinner while in the area. The food and the Pho was really good. The service staff was nice as well. We enjoyed the food and will return here the next time that we are in the area.

I came here at lunch hour on a friday with colleagues. The place wasn't too busy, and yet the service was horrendous. Our waitress came by once to take our order, once to bring our food, and then did not return. We ended up having to walk to the front and ask for our bill after waiting nearly 20 minutes.... More

This place is way too expensive for what it is trying to do. Service is ok given the number of staff and food is chain viet, trying to be thai. Very popular for anyone who does not know viet or thai. Nice ambiance, like say the Mandarin chain, but not worth the price. There are cheaper and nicer viet in... More

Pretty good service, large menu (which can be a bad thing), and food that was not note able. Although ok it lacks any special flavour, not a meal to remember.

Pho soup, BBQ pork rolls, chili salt fish, chicken and green beans in green curry are all frequent choices. Recently added Chinese Dim Sum to the menu, which seems a bit odd in a Viet restaurant.

I've enjoyed this place in the past, but was disappointed on this visit. I showed up perhaps a little late for lunch, but I am still a customer I would think. I was seated very cheerfully, and was presented a menu. Once I made my selection, the server was gone. She didn't ask me for a drink, or anything. So,... More
