I always have good food when I eat here. Like another reviewer said, it's reliable. The issue I have is that the entrees are too pricey for lunch, in my opinion. I wish they had lunch specials or something. If they did, I would eat here more often since I work very close. The staff is very pleasant and willing... More

The Mr. & I, as well as many friends, have been going here for quite a few years. When not hugely busy, staff are attentive; water glasses are kept full (and I drink a lot of water there). The food is good. They are willing to accommodate a "more spicy" or "less spicy" request when ordering. Personally, I think their... More

Benjarong has the best pad thai I've eaten. The menu is pretty extensive and not too expensive. It's a simple and quiet atmosphere with quick service and good food. I thought the specialty drinks were small and filled with an awful lot of ice, though.

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
