Brought large family group on a Sunday night. They handled us fairly well, it is a large restaurant and seemed to be used to that sort of multigenerational group. Food was only average, even the pad Thai was run of the mill. Interior seemed a little tired.

This restaurant is starting to show its age. The dining room and the menu could stand some updating. Still, it does the standard thai menu fairly well, and there is a lack of good thai restaurants in the area.

Their noodle dishes are great. Portions nice size for sharing. They use a lot of fresh ingredients and herbs. Try their sweet sticky rice and fruits for dessert. Never had to wait for seating without reservations. Their grilled squid when they offer it is amazing.

We've been going 1-2 times a year for 18 years. Obviously we like it. I have never had anything I didn't like. When we went today, the Pad Thai wasn't up to its usual standard. That said, it was still very very good.

We had lunch here and were very impressed. The server was friendly and professional and checked back frequently. I ordered the papaya salad and wasn't sure what to expect. It was refreshing and unusual. I would definitely order it again. The prices were reasonable.

I would like to tell them that their map location is wrong, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it. I have eaten here many times and always found it enjoyable.

We've ordered takeout from here for about 15 years and worked our way around the menu. I would agree with reviewers who say the food is Americanized Thai; generally sweeter than it has to be and kind of tame spice-wise. The staff has always responded to requests to boost the seasonings and seemed generally pleasant on the rare occasions when... More

This restaurant is rather nondescript on the outside and is located in the parking lot of a strip mall. It's almost always crowded, and the reason is the food. There is an enormous Thai/Asian menu. The variety is impressive, they make it spicy (or not) as you like it, and service is good. The environment is open and pleasant, but... More

We've been to Benjarong many times over the past 15 years. Although it suffers a bit from the tendency to Americanize Thai food (add sweet, take away spice), it retains a lot of the fire that Thai food should have, and still ranks better than its competition (read Tara Thai's mediocrity here). The last time we were there, we were... More
