Where the hell is that photo of the neon front from...not this restaurant locatoion

Use to be a great place to bring family as service was quick and attentive, cool washrooms and bar area. Lots of parking. Only can recapture that when I visit the London location now

The washrooms here are filty dirty. You must stand in a large puddle of urine to use the urinals. I recieved Wontons first, but one had a hair sticking out of it. I recieved a plate with my wontons that had 80 percent of it covered with a thin layer of something that looked baked on, you could pick at... More

This is what I am telling myself. Well, this place was a disappointment for me. Upon arriving to this trendy looking restaurant with first glance reviews looking decent so we ignored the fishy smell. The service was friendly and eager to please but they were quite uninformed about the menu and ingredients. The complimentary green tea was hot and wonderful,... More

Arrived just before noon for lunch. Met at door and took to a table, ...menus thrown on table and host was gone. Almost empty restaurant and placed right beside the kitchen door with pots and dishes banging constantly. Three waters placed on table and gone again! She did return in a bit and took our order. Food dropped, ... gone... More

We arrived at this restaurant last Saturday at 6:30pm. It was very busy but there is a huge parking lot so parking was not a problem. Although the tables were all full, there was no one else waiting so we got a table for two in 10 minutes. The receptionist was fine as was the server, contrary to another reviewer's... More

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 seated... 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.
