I visited the restaurant with friends today - i was the only first timer in the group. The restaurant was very nice. The portion was large - pad thai for myself. It was good for a small group of four but would have been good for a party of any size in my opinion. Food was fresh, hot and... read more

Love the location on Fanshawe park road. The food is so good! I go there all the time with my boyfriend or out with friends. Headed there now for date night!

Good things first. We enjoyed our meal at the north London outlet of this small chain. We had a good mix of spicy (but not overly) red curry and Singapore noodles tempered with a vegetable and tofu dish and a cool mango salad. The only slipup with the food was the tepid first pot of tea. The problem was the... More

I have been going to the Ben Thanh restaurants for nearly 8 years. I was thrilled to learn that they were opening up a location in the northwest part of town, I'm just disappointed that I moved away from that area! I have been to this location five or six times, and I tend to order the same things. I... More

My mother and I both ordered the appetizer platter and I ordered Tom yum shrimp soup, it was all good besides the spring rolls which were drenched in grease. My husband had beef and rice which he said was quite bland, but his chicken wings were good. They were quick to serve us and it wasn't overly busy since it... More

I generally get take out so not sure what the service is really like but the food is fantastic!! I'd definitely recommend the pad thai,soup 128(a spicy beef noodle soup) and the spring rolls which are the best!

First time at the new Ben Thanh location on Fanshawe Park Rd. We were impressed with the modern look as you enter but our good impression quickly evaporated at the behaviour of the hostess/manager. She did not make eye contact with us but busied herself with a phone call and entering an order into her computer while we stood in... More

I met my out-of-town parents here for dinner as it was easier for them to access than the downtown location. When we arrived we were greeted and seated right away. I can imagine if it is a busy night that there would be lineups because the restaurant is small despite its appearance. They seem more prepared to accommodate larger groups... More

Had always eaten at the other 2 locations (Wellington and York St.) before and was both good, thought to try this location ( Fanshawe Park Rd.) but I was super disappointed, I had a vegetarian curry, and the vegetables taste stale and not well cook, super spicy too even though I asked for a mild one. Will never come back... More

excellent beef stew I highly recommend the #125 beef stew. The cut of beef they use is fantastic, especially if you ask to cut off the fat. The broth is also remarkable. The only disappointment is that they just increase prices.
