There is one waitress who is always there and she is the best. Very fast and professional but for the rest of the servers, they all need to be thrown in the trash can. They barely smile, they hate their jobs and lives. The host throws the menu on the table and runs off. The manager there she wears whatever... More

Mmmm...piping hot Pho! Our first bowl this Fall and I've been dreaming about it for weeks. They didn't disappoint, the chicken Pho was delicious as well as the Beef Stew. Service was a tad slow as the waitress had the entire side of the restaurant. We asked for tea when our water was served before ordering and didn't receive it... More

The wait staff are generally okay but there is one vietnamese young women who is so rude it is unbelievable in terms of ignoring you...The food is really hit and miss. I had the chicken roll and it was served cold and with stale rice noodles. They took it back to the kitchen and instead of cooking me a new... More

We were taking a couple out for dinner and drove one hour to meet them here. We have been to this place a few times since it first opened and fully enjoyed each time but hadn't been here in a while. Our guests were coming in from Burlington. We got to the restaurant, parked and proceeded to the front entrance.... More

This restaurant used to be good - not any more....We used to go to this restaurant regularly, but both the prices and the quality of food have changed. We had not been here for the last 18 months until today and 'what a difference'. We shared the grilled lemon grass pork chop-we used to get 5 pork chops. Today the... More

The food is standard, but the price is expensive, the worse part is the service! We are asian, several time we asked for some service it took long time to get it, we asked if they have the hot chilli paste they said they dont have, but i saw the other table which the customer were white people they have...

Food was ok, not the best Thai/Vietnamese food in Guelph. Love their iced matcha with glass jelly. The server was friendly.

Witness forgot our order --- took 2 hours to get a simple curry + soup. When asked why the order took so long the waitress was apathetic saying that there was an issue in the kitchen and when further probed she said she forgot. Very disappointing! She marked down our meal by 15% percent....which was not worth it. We should... More

This is my first visit to this Ben Thanh location I've been to the Cambridge restaurant a couple of times the food here is just as good as it is in Cambridge. It is very busy here today I think I got the last table in the place. I ordered some classic entrées, shrimp and beef and avocado rolls. I... More

Took a friend for dinner. We both had soup as an app and it was delicious. Waitress was nice and friendly. Eaten here often and should have remembered to order apps then order mains as the food pretty much comes out all at the same time. Always good portions at fair prices. Beef is always a little chewy but plenty... More
