Food was great. The complaining staff not so much. :/

We don't often visit Ben Thanh but we were in the mood and stopped in. The food was good. We had cashew chicken and the cream cheese wontons. Both dishes were yummy. No complaints. What made me uncomfortable was the complaining staff. From what I overheard there was a miserable diner that had... read more

We have had takeout from this location many times without incidence. This time however my family and I were sick immediately after eating. I was disappointed that I needed to throw away about $50 worth of takeout. I called to let the manager know that we were sick and ill I got was that nobody else had complained so it... More

Should have known our experience at Ben Thanh on Fanshawe Park Road West was not going to be a good one when I tried to phone them the day before we went to ask about gluten free options. The first time I called it rang and rang and when finally someone picked up they hung up immediately so I recalled... More

We order take out from here 1-2 times a month and always have the same experience; authentic, fresh, & delicious meals. Our go to dishes are the fresh pork rolls & green thai curry with chicken. We always get multiple orders of the fresh rolls because they are so good and the curry is blazing hot with rich taste. Only... More

A group of ladies stopped by for a birthday celebration at lunch time. We were greated & seated promptly. With the menus came warm tea & a large glass of water - & a very patient waitress. Thank you so much to the friendly staff. We were not rushed & everyone enjoyed their meals. Pad Thai & Cashew Chicken were... More

From start to finish it was a poor experience. We walked in and the hostess was on the phone taking take out orders so we waited for her to finish. She then took us to a packed dining room by the bar and was going to seat us at a table right next to a table of six who basically... More

This is a very busy restaurant but even though it was loud and busy the food was hot and delicious and served quickly. It is not a place to linger unless you go when it is less busy. The waitress was very gracious and helped me with my gluten free choices.

This is a review of the north-west London location. I patronized this restaurant with my wife and another couple. The menu is puzzling, as there appears to be multiple options to order virtually the same food. It takes quite a bit of study to familiarize one's self with the greasy-spoon style menu, pages long as it is. One server was... More

My husband and i have been loyal customers since it opened but only ever get take-out (we order as often as 2-3 times a week since the food is great and the prices are decent). Usually he orders but last night I did the ordering for the first time in a while. Never have I tried to order take-out and... More

Manager did not apologize or remove from bill was very rude and stated that you order - you pay. Ummmm if you don't eat food that tastes... More
