It's Okay...

This Ben Thanh was different from the other ones I've been to. The food was awesome. Though the waiters didn't check on us. The place was really big.

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

The Thai green curry is pretty hot, but extremely tasty. It suited me very well, and my wife was happy with her favourite - cashew chicken - not quite so spicy!

Trying to get a server's attention was very difficult. We were seated right away, but we were left with their very large menu for quite a while. Their menu is too large, how does anyone ever choose? It needs to be pared down. Finally someone stopped by with a pot of tea and promptly disappeared. 15 minutes later someone came... More

We were excited to try this restaurant today and the servers were ok but neither of them offered much help in assisting us with the many pages that make up the menu. It was lunch time and we didn't want a big portion, the prices aren't bad if you were there for dinner. We finally decided on two choices, one... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant when it was called Mein Street, we had a terrible experience, so we never went back. The food was ok but the service was awful. Now, a couple of years later it is opened under a different name. This time around the server was ok but in no way went out of... More
