We've eaten at Benjarong several times before, and have always been satisfied with the food. They serve "authentic" Thai food. The price I think is reasonable enough since it is a restaurant in a hotel. However, they should do something about the "Authentic Thai" manager lady who helps out in serving the food. She is a bit unfriendly--she is around... More

Housed in the second floor of Thai Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati, Benjarong serves the finest authentic Thai Dish. We had the classic Tom Yan Gung soup which was perfect, Phad Thai, Pomelo Salad, Pandan fried Chicken, fish and Jasmine rice, plus Thai mango dessert. The food was great although pricey.

Ensconced in the five-star Dusit Thani hotel in Makati and bearing the name Benjarong, i.e. five colors, from hues in Thai pottery, we expected a five-star experience, only to be disappointed in more ways than one. Arriving at 9:15 pm, we (a party of six) are told that we cannot be accommodated (only a handful of other diners in the... More

I like to keep going back to restaurants I love and tend to try newer restaurants when hype has mellowed down- maybe I'm old fashioned like that :) I still ordered my usual favorites. Same great quality, same perfect ambiance & service. Look at how my rice was served!

Had a late lunch here a few months back with family and friends. We had the restaurant all to ourselves as it was quite late for lunch already. The restaurant decor and menu are all authentically Thai, they even have a resident restaurant manager who is Thai. We ordered the traditional favorites and we were not disappointed as well as...

The restaurant is conveniently located inside Dusit Thani Manila. This is where I had my first Papadum and other 'out of my radar' dishes. The resto offers a wide range of authentic and absolutely delicious Thai foods, but you can still have other dishes if you want. Like their 'pampabatang' Filipino section. Love for Benjarong!

We are glad we chose Benjarong Royal Thai Restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was close to our hotel, the Intercontinental, and we calculated that a Thai hotel (the Dusit Thani) would have to provide a good Thai restaurant. The restaurant is well laid-out and pleasantly decorated. We have been disappointed by many Thai restaurants, but definitely not by Benjcharong.... More

Located inside the Dusit Thani Hotel. We were surprised they weren't busy for dinner but that didn't mean the food was not good. The atmosphere was cozy, service was good and the food was delicious. The fried seabass in tamarand sauce was my favorite! We also had the thin yellow curry with chicken and the hot prawn soup. We were... More

Authentic Thai food in an elegant setting. A little pricey but you cannot get better pad thai anywhere else in the city. On Sundays, there is a cross-over lunch buffet with the other restaurants in the hotel, including the equally well-regarded Umu Japanese restaurant, ie for 1 price, you can also sample the food from the other restaurants.

First, let's make things easier, the restaurant is located on the mezzanine of the Dusit Thani Hotel in the Makati sector of Manila. The restaurant was a quite empty (two third empty, maybe more) for a Saturday night at 8 pm. But that is no sign of bad quality or ambiance, as service, food and ambiance were excellent. I hesitated... More
