This is probably the only authentic Thai restaurant in Chennai. Pretty much every dish from the Popular Tom Yam Goong, steamed fish, crispy beef and garlic fried rice and prawn skewers were all done very well. We left very satisfied! Will be going back again.

Sorry. An excellent experience. Many quite spicy things - spicier than I expected. The crispy broccoli appetizer as very nice as was the baby corn and corn tartlet. The Pad Thai was good but more hot than flavorful. Like most places here, many Veg options. Service staff was kind and quick and handled a late and large group well.

Vietnamese food is simple and elegant, depending on subtle combinations, fresh, seasonal produce and meticulous attention to detail. The food we had, a classic Pho (beef... More

December 2014, when I visited Benjarong. It must have taken a day to finalise on a good Thai restaurant...and by the way, it is not easy to find an authentic one. I think I went after reviewing a comment about this restaurant, and trust me it did not fail my expectations. The food and the service were just brilliant. It... More

Have had a great meal each time I have been. Parking is not a problem too so it's a good place for some great... More

Been to Benjarong last week-end. Ambience was good and service is also fine. Starters are very good, tasty and unique. But maincourse was mediocre. Thai curry was neither authentic nor customized to chennai taste...!!!
