This restaurant is still owned by the same people. Thay have just re branded it under the Ben Thanh name. THERE IS NO LUNCH MENU. The staff is rude. So bad we walked out. There were only two tables on a saturday at noon. The waiter told us that it is usually lined up out the door. Haha.

Read a previous review and thought the person was being picky about 'annoying cutlery' but it really is. It is difficult to grip (even the teenager mentioned this) and hold, it is not balanced. Chicken satays and sauce - delicious. Coconut shrimp - delicious. Pad thai - really good. Chow mein- OK, sirloin beef was not tender and not enough... More

First time there, Loved the atmosphere, staff was appropriately friendly and attentive, food quantity, flavour and price were all a pleasant surprise. Delicious in fact. My husband is an uber fussy eater and he loved his Cashew Chicken. My Pad Sieu Beef was everything the waiter said it would be and the wonton soup he suggested we share was excellent!... More

I am, by no means, an expert in the area of Oriental cuisine but really enjoyed the cashew chicken stir fry. One negative thing about the overall experience was this establishment's selection of cutlery which I found quite heavy and awkward to manage. The individual pieces were round and were continually slipping from my grasp. Our server was knowledgeable and... More

Visited this restaurant 4 times - first time [shortly after they opened] was a disaster. Staff was confused, the water boy walked around in a daze carrying a jug of water, filling no ones glasses. Waited 10 minutes, asked for a server, waited 10 more minutes - nothing changed (the place was relatively empty), then left. Went back a year... More

Walking inside, passing a very abstract fusion sculpture on our way to the dining room, immediately can tell they have invested in the appearance of the restaurant. That's where the creativity dies.. The servers and hostesses are friendly, they explain the concept of the restaurant well. The food is intended to bridge the gap between East and West and the... More

Went for a office lunch, spent lots of money, two of us ordered Spicy Thai, knowing it was rated three peppers, we both eat hot food all the time, this was so hot it was inedible. We complained to the server and she said she never had a complaint before and it was a popular dish. A while later she... More

We have been to mein street several times and have found it consistently fresh and delicious. They have a lot of gluten free options that were very good and definitely not causing you compromise. The service was attentive and the server very knowledgeable about the menu which is something we greatly appreciated as we were. Not only trying to satisfy... More

The menu looked quite interesting with mixtures of different flavors but the resulting meals were so so. For example The pad Thai which is really hard to mess up was at best OK. Service was fine but food disappointing.

Four of us went for dinner last night. We went for 7pm on a Friday and didn't need reservations. We had pad thai, fried rice and the mango stirfry plus fresh beef rolls. Everything was delicious and the service was great! We didn't have to wait long for anything. This restaurant is a favourite!
