We stopped in on a cold winter day and the spicy hot tom yum soup really hit the spot! My gf had the chicken chow mein and really enjoyed it. Portion sizes are on the higher end of the scale. Friendly servers and very clean inside. Will definitely be back.

The food here is all amazing. Served fresh and hot! Wait staff are usually good. Many thins to choose from, and wait staff can help you decide. Husband likes mild - usually orders the beef chow mein and the vietnam spring rolls are to die for. I usually order something different each time. Cashew chicken, Black pepper shrimp, Seafood pad...

My wife ordered Spicy Thai Noodle and a Mango Salad. She was satisfied enough with it. But not enough to take the leftovers home. I ordered the Meat Lovers (as pictured here on Trip Advisor for Ben Thanh). Presentation was good. But there is a ton of lettuce that was yellow and the quality of cut for the beef, pork... More

My family and I are regulars of the restaurant. However, I have noticed a dramatic deterioration in the quality of the food lately. My rolls had definitely an after taste of bleach to conceal the questionable meat. I am not going to return to what was my preferred restaurant for many years.

We had the cheese & vegie wontons as an appetizer and they were REALLY good. Hot and fresh and crispy. Should have stopped there because the rest of the meal was disappointing. I've had pad thai before, and is it really supposed to be an unnatural shade of orange? The colour of the noodles was unnatural and unappetizing. It was... More

Great for a lunch time meeting, or just a quick get together. A good choice of food on the menu, we go here a lot as my friend has allergies and has no problem finding something great on the menu. Going here again 17th October 2014

This is my favourite restaurant in the area. We would eat here at least once a week. Food is good, serving size is reasonable with the price, place is clean and staff are friendly. My favourite is the grilled nam roll. My order is just not complete without it. I also love their dimsum. This is probably our most visited... More

We stumbled onto this place while shopping and it had a fair Asian clientele which boded well. They advertised all day Dim Sum which we partook of. It was as good as any we had had even tho most of the offerings were made at their central facility, the way of the world as these things go I suppose. Anyway... More
